Yesterday informed delivery told me that I had 2 packages delivered to my front door/porch at 11:03 am. Poop. It was raining. A lot. The stairs are not covered. USPS does not wrap your mail in a big plastic bag (though UPS does). I had a feeling it would be bad.
When I got home there were 3 packages on the stairs and one stuck in the door. I had a bonanza of deliveries! UPS, who did NOT wrap the package (or maybe that was FedEx...), put it ON the threshold of the door, so it was at least partially protected from the tiny bit of roof overhang (not much protection). Fedex jammed the express envelope into the edge of the door. And USPS, in fine form, left the packages right on the stair, nowhere near any sort of protection. To be fair, there was not really an option for protection, unless they slid them under the stairs. That would have been a good idea. I was not totally sure what was in any of the packages, but one of them was from Kimberly Bleecker, so I knew it was donations for the Field of Dolls Online Spring show. Luckily, Kimberly covered the top of the box with clear packing tape, which saved it from damage.
We also have a bunch of cool prizes to add to the prize pool! This show has SO MANY prizes! I love it! Judging is underway and I am excited for the live results show on the 24th.The other package did not fare as well. When I picked it up to bring it inside it immediately sagged and started to disintegrate. It became self opening as I got to the kitchen, and basically the whole bottom opened up. Luckily the tins inside (a gift for Ethan) were, well, tins, and wrapped in bubble wrap so safe. In the end, nothing was damaged. I got some more awesome prizes for the show, Ethan got a cool gift that was not destroyed (our 22 year anniversary is on the 20th), and I FINALLY got in my overtone order (my colored conditioner). So all is well. And I am happy.
