Surprise Packages

So last night I got home to see this massive box sitting in the middle of the living room.  As you can see from the picture, you could easily fit a babyseat in the box and have plenty of room left over.

Instantly, my mind raced with the awesome things that could have arrived in said treasure box.  Was it something for me for Christmas that Jen couldn't clean up in time? Could it be a Wii,
 XBOX, Castle Greyskull, Strawberry Shortcake's Summer Home? WHAT? 

Oh I was so excited when I casually asked, "what was in the box?" She just looked at me in disgust and pointed to something on the counter..."a book," she said.  I thought, "What the hell kind of book was shipped in that thing?" I looked at her and asked if she purchased an original print of the King James Bible cold off of the Gutenburg Press.

Nope The Empty Pot by Demi...Seriously? again, Seriously? We went online to fill out a return shipment form and it is suggested that we send it back in the original box.  Ok, lets look at this objectively...I am going to send a paperback book in a box that could hold a desktop PC.  

Here is what the book looked like compared to the box. It is a good thing they used 100 yards of that packing air bags...I would just hate to have that book move one millimeter in that 10 gallon container.

So I have neglecting my little blog...again. I can live with that, but neglecting the people who are commenting? That is just not Wright (a little shout-out to Julie Wright who frequents this page...or so I have heard.) It has been a crazy month. Lots of traveling and lots & lots of work. I am physically exhausted, but my mind is always racing a million miles a minute. Gotta be honest, I'm a little burned out, but Christmas is right around the corner which is awesome.

It just seems that lately, I have been walking through a fog. I am forgetting things a lot more and time just seems to be flying by. I can't believe that my kids are growing up so fast and that 2009 is a mere three weeks away.

I just need a day that I can take to detox and not think about anything. Maybe catch up on a little sleep...I think my wife said it best when she mentioned that in the mornings, I resemble the walking dead. Being the chronic insomniac that I am, I usually get a good 3.5 ~ 4 hours of sleep a night, and I seem to be able to function at a level that works...or i am really good at faking my alertness. But Jen might be onto something...
