Dorothy, I couldn't agree more.

there's no place like home.
My place is in the home.

Top Ten Things I've Learned While Employed By UPS...

10. I never used to notice when people didn't shovel their walkway.

9. Some people are friendly and some people are not friendly. I prefer the former. (you know who you are Mr. Custodian at Bingham High School).

8. I have an extremely unhealthy relationship with Maverik. For example, Shawn loves this one item that is one extremely huge and thick hot dog wrapped in a croussant. I can't take more than one bite and feel good about myself.

7. I am not a whiner.

6. What I can accomplish and what I think I can accomplish are too very different things. I can do hard things!

5. You can get a whiff of someone's house, without them opening the door.

4. I've discovered three more "faces" of Shawn:
Work Shawn: Fun guy.
Wednesday Shawn: (the busiest day of the week at UPS): Not-so-fun guy.
Christmas Shawn: (Wednesday Shawn x10)

(you can't blame the guy, 250 stops in one day!!!)

3. I still do, and always will have, chivalry in my marriage (nothing over 20lb!)

2. My husband works very hard for our family. I truly appreciate that now. Hope this makes up for #4! You know I love you!

1. I used to love the color brown.

p.s. Number of times I've bit the dust: 3
Number of times Shawn witnessed said falls: 0

did I hear brown is the new black?

I didn't think so.

so here I am.
In my browns.
for all the blogging world to see!

For those of you who don't know,
I am Shawn's "runner" for the holiday season,
which means he drives the truck while I "run" the packages.
(This way I will actually get to see the husby during the holidays)
We have been having way too much fun.
I'm so glad I did it!
