Merry Christmas to me

Last week we got our yearly bonus at work. I spent the whole thing on ME the same day. I knew exactly what I wanted.

I already have a sewing machine and it does still work just fine for being 30 years old. I've had my eye on one of these computerized embroidery machines though. Thursday night when I was putting my order in with Amazon I think my mouse hovered over the finalize order button for a good twenty minutes before I actually did it.
I took the free shipping which was supposed to be 4-7 business days. I got this on Saturday. Yes just 2 days after I placed the order. It really wasn't even a full 2 days because I placed the order late Thursday evening and this arrived before noon on Saturday. Amazon never fails to impress me.

HOORAY!! What a GREAT gift! I'm glad that you spent your bonus on YOU! Sometimes we don't reward ourselves and instead use it for bills or others in our lives. You deserve it, pally!

Have fun playing with it!

I have always received great service from Amazon. For I have often received my orders way before I expected to. There was also a couple of times when I really wasn't happy with what I received, and after writing a little note about it, they made sure I had a full refund without even having to send back the defective merchandise!

BeadedTail said...

I wouldn't have a clue what to do with that but I'm sure excited to see what you do with it! What a perfect use of your bonus! Well, except for treats for Duke of course.

Rose said...

Merry Christmas to you indeed! How exciting. I have heard a couple other people raving about Amazon's quick shipping for the holidays. I look forward to seeing what you make with your new machine.

Dee said...
