Okay. LOL. This is all going to add up to be a small issue and it got worked out but, sheesh, its been driving me crazy.
So, I've come to Florida from Texas and brought my 3 children without my husband to visit my parents. For the record, my parents are thrilled about my weight loss. Couldn't be more supportive or excited for me. They actually hadn't seen me since January and they are just floored by the changes in how I look. But I digress.
Knowing I was coming here, I ordered extra boxes of food from my center and right after my last weigh in, drove to the local UPS store and shipped, paying for a 2 day delivery (should have been last Friday) of the food so that it would get her 2 days before I arrived on Sunday. I let my parents know it was coming.
I get a call from my mother Saturday evening. Food never got here. Okay, I go online and look it up. UPS claims they tried to deliver at 7:50 PM on Friday and no one was there and they would try again on Saturday. My parents have lived at the same location for several years. The same 2 UPS drivers have their route. They know that the gate house closes at my parent's complex at 5 PM. After 5 PM no packages can get through the gate so to claim that they tried to deliver by 7:50 is a worthless statement. The food did not arrive on Saturday either, again another 'attempt' to deliver it at 7:50 PM.
Fine. I pack up what food I have at home into my suitcase (what I had wanted to avoid) and we leave for Florida at 4:15 in the morning (had to take two planes with my 3 children) and got here at about noon. I had one pre-made Strawberry-Banana drink in my carry on (which they scanned for explosives) and I drank that when we landed. (My veggies were really all over the place that day...)
Get to my parent's home and my suitcase has been searched. Guess I was randomly selected. Most of my food is gone. They'd left me 3 packets of food. I had two Orange-Mango drink mixes and a Wildberry Yogurt drink mix. All the rest. Gone. (Maybe they were thinking of trying IP??)
I drank the Yogurt this morning and my father drove down (and its a hike) to UPS and picked up my food (2 forms of ID to get it) and brought it back here so I am not equipped to be here until Friday.
I know this is really not that big of a deal but its just the kind of thing that makes me want to go AHHHHH.
Thanks for letting me vent.
