I am so upset, I find this present for Sarah for Christmas, its a hardcover book by an author she really likes. He hasn't written anything in a long time. I think what a perfect surprise this will be. So often she get things from a list she has made, no real surprises and I think this year I will really have a delightful surprise. I go ahead and order it from Amazon all excited that it will be so much fun seeing her face on Christmas morning. Only to find that she bought the book yesterday. We always tell her at Thanksgiving to not buy anything for herself and of course she didn't listen.
Now I need to return the book and find something else and I only have 9 days to do it in. I know I shouldn't be so upset about this but its the third time this has happened to me. The other times she walked in on me when I was weaving a surprise shawl for her and the other time when I ordered candy from England for her. Why is it when I try to do something special it always goes wrong. I think this is one of those posts that I will regret posting tomorrow but I have to vent it somewhere.
