Someone I love left something they love at my house. They know good and well that I'm not the kind of person who ships or mails stuff. I don't know why really...I just never seem to be able to follow through with that. I feel bad about it but I can't change it. No matter what.
Prior to them leaving my house I told them to double check to see if they left anything. We laughed remembering that I hate shipping stuff. Thirty minutes after they'd left...I was cleaning up and found the thing they love.
They set me up for failure.
I put the thing at the front door so I wouldn't forget to ship it back to them and, within a few days, I went to ship it but the place I went couldn't guarantee that it wouldn't be broken when it arrived because they didn't have the supplies needed to send it according to what their list said they'd need.
So I brought it back home with every intention of shipping it from New Orleans. Well...when I was next in New Orleans, I ended up getting to the city too late to ship it from the place near where I was going to be.
Then it was going to go back with a mutual friend, but the mutual friend and I didn't get together when we said we'd get together so I couldn't hand it off.
So...it's been back where it's been. And it's been added to. I've added a couple of gifts to it but hell...makes no nevermind when it's still here and not THERE.
And I pass by it every.single.day.
But the only time I think about it is the brief second my eyes light on it.
I don't know why this is a constant in my life and I swear I've tried my best to be better at it. You have no idea how much stuff I found when I was packing up 13700 that I'd purchased for someone I love. Clothes that children I purchased them for have outgrown. Fabulous gifts for fabulous people because I only buy things for people I love that I would buy for myself.
I'm not proud of this. I'm truly not. But the good Lord Himself knows that it will probably always happen. It's my negative THING. The thing I can't shake no matter what.
Unless I have a PASSION for it, I have no desire to do it and so...it seems to never get done. *sigh*
Anyone else have this issue?
Or is it just me?
