Holiday Hustle

Hello all! How’s everyone holiday season turning out?

I’ve actually completed all my Christmas shopping and wrapping and basically marked-off most of my to-do’s regarding the holiday. There were some gifts that I had to mail to extended family out of town, and those have already been packed-up and shipped and delivered so no worries there at all. I’m really happy that I don’t have to step foot in any type of retail store for the rest of the year! 🙂

However, there is one gift that hasn’t arrived yet that I’m starting to worry about. My daughter asked for it specifically so she’s expecting it and will be disappointed if it doesn’t show up in time. I ordered it during the Thanksgiving holiday because I especially wanted to make sure that it arrives in time for Christmas. You can imagine that I’m quite perturbed that it isn’t here yet.

I’ve checked the delivery confirmation tracker on it, and there’s been 0 activity on it since Dec 5th, so I’m starting to lose hope. It’s weird, the package originated in China (ok, that was probably my first red flag). At first everything seemed ok as there was constant activity on the tracker multiple times a day UNTIL it arrived in the United States. And THAT’s when all the action stopped.

I’ve been checking everyday and nothing. I’m kinda sour. There was a customer service email that I already tried, and they only give me the same information as the tracker, so that’s not helpful. I got a survey from that company asking me how I enjoyed the product, and I did respond back that I haven’t received it yet and gave it 1 star, hoping to catch someone’s attention. I haven’t heard anything back yet.

So that’s my only stress left regarding gifts and Christmas shopping. Wish me luck!

But how are you all doing? Done yet? Waiting until the last minute? Stressed-out? Chill?

  1. Good for you!! I am on track as far as my schedule, but there is still much to do. I am traveling this year, so packing is my main task left- along with work. I took next week off, but I do have to work this week. Maybe your package is stuck at customs? I hope it arrives on time! Blessings, friend!
