Man Proposes, God Disposes

And in my case, the Devil Counterposes.

Proposal: I shall mail these two giveaway prizes off to Venezuela and Malaysia respectively and they shall arrive in two weeks.
Disposal: 4 weeks and they have not yet arrived.

Proposal: I shall purchase this camera over the internet.
Disposal: My choice shall suddenly go out of stock and I shall not be informed.

Proposal: I shall mail this package to the US and it shall arrive in 4-6 days.
Disposal: The package shall stay in the sorting office for 6 days.

Proposal: I shall work on Sleepy Hollow.
Disposal: Perhaps not.

Counterposal: Why not work on Cirque des Cercles? Isn't the red pretty?

*Counterpose is an actual word, but counterposal is not

Eh, Canada Post is very, very slow. Don't worry too much. Although, I sent something ground to India and it arrived in 4 days! Clearly this was to make up for all the times things took two weeks to reach the next city over. :)

Work on whatever floats your boat. :) Things will get better soon.

LOL! I've had those days!

Karen said...'s sending positive postal vibes your way! Hopefully everything will show up soon. Either way, sounds like you can stitch...have fun.

Love the addition of the Counterprosal voice, although that voice can be dangerous :)

Hope everything you have posted very soon.

I hope the postal things get sorted out soon. In my experience, things sent to and from Canada to the UK take much longer than to/from the US - I think Canada Post has a reputation for being slow! ;)

I would buy a lottery ticket if I were you...I think you're due a bit of good luck!!

I always think there is a conspiracy against me somewhere when these things start to pile up. Hang in there.

I hear you!! My life seems to operate on the "When You Want To Hear God Laugh, Tell Him Your Plans" theory. Go for the Cirque!
