Everybody's UPS Guy Recognizes Them Out And About, Right???

Sign that I may shop online too much. Yesterday I was standing outside my kids' school and the UPS guy walks past me, stops and says, "hey, I have a package for you today, want it now?" While that is awkward enough as I quickly realize he knows me outside of my front porch, I look over to see one of the 3rd grade teachers looking at me. I smiled and she says, "you must shop A LOT for him to know you that well." THANKS.... Ok, maybe he is just really good with faces?! Or perhaps the fact that our elementary school is nestled inside our neighborhood has something to do with it... Or I shop online too much. Whatever.... Taking 2 two year olds to the mall is not a lot of fun. Shopping during nap on the couch, that's nice....

Anyway, after that fun moment I actually did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and I have decided that it is strongly possible that she is a bitter woman that may or may not have had an unpleasant childhood. What else could explain what she put me through last night. Yuck. My shoulders are sore this morning. I know, I know, all of this is good, but I still hate her a little. I think she wants it that way. :)


  1. There was a time when my "almost twins" were little that the UPS man knew me, too. That was back when there were so many more freebies on the internet and incentives to shop that way. It was also during what I refer to as my "cave years." When I had four boys four and under, three of them in diapers, I didn't leave my house much at all. Grocery shopping alone was enough of an adventure that I didn't dare do much else.

    Good luck with the Shred. Jillian scares me.

  2. OMG thats hilarious!!!!!! Maybe he just recognizes you because you are hot and he wants to see whats in your package. Too far? Ok sorry...

  3. Ummm, Dani, while your attempt at finding a different reason for the UPS recognizing me, I will say an almost 40 yr old with 5 kids is the LAST thing this 20 something UPS dude is clamoring for... BUT, if I get anymore crap from hubby about my online shopping, I'll just tell him the guy has a crush, not that I shop too much! :)
