I really love Halloween colors so I was happy to see the colors Kim chose for this week's color challenge on the DD blog. That said... I don't have anything around yet for Halloween! (Shhhh... don't tell Cathy Z!) But, I did have the happiest of emails in my inbox that had two of the colors in it and a (long!) story to go with, so here ya go... the saga of getting Shannon's soccer gear to Scotland. She wasn't sure she'd need it (would she have time to play...?) so we didn't pack it and add even more weight to that ginormous suitcase! (Try fitting four months worth of winter clothes into one suitcase! LOL) Anyways, turned out she did want it and the box of her gear finally arrived, but took way, way longer than expected (mostly the fault of FedEx) and it wasn't cheap. Although it was cheaper than new cleats, shinguards, shorts, socks, athletic tape, etc. Haha! Shannon was stressed as she tried out for the women's soccer (football) team and the women's Gaelic football team without cleats! (It turned out OK, but...) Anyways, if you have the patience, you can read the journaling for the comedy of errors that this shipment was! LOL
