Tackle it Tuesday - My First Ever

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

It is indeed, my first Tackle It Tuesday.
Why did I choose today to join in?
Because I needed the boost to get this done.

I have a box. It's a fantastic box. It needs to get mailed to Uganda. To my friend Holly who wants chocolate.

What's my hold up? I keep thinking of things to put in it. I wanted to write a long letter and put in it (it's a short letter). I wanted to buy her the hazelnut coffee but kept forgetting.

Enough! - Today's the Day!!
Today's the day I tackle it!
It WILL get sealed, labeled AND Mailed!!

I wonder what the postoffice would think if I asked to take a picture of them stamping the box. Maybe I can take a picture of the custom forms as proof that I sent it.

I got it sent! The area she is living and working is not restricted - and it's going Express Mail! It might not take FOREVER for the box to arrive. So, Holly!! Keep an eye out! I'm totally pumped. It only cost about $60 (compared to UPS's cost of $200+) and it won't have to go by GOAT.

So I now mark this as Tackled!!
I'm Thrilled!
I'll quit before I come up with more "t" adjectives - 'cause it might become tragic.

You sound like me! I'm forever putting things off because I need to 'add one more thing' or complete something else before it's ready. Glad you are getting it done, and I'm sure your friend will be so excited!
Hmmmmm....reminds me how bad I need to throw the boxes on my porch into my car and get them to the thrift store!!
Great tackle, and welcome aboard!

I need to move to Uganda so I can get some chocolate from you!! And, as you know, I forever put things off thinking that I will be able to write or do more. Perfectionism at its worst. Or would that be its best? LOL Good job getting this done today!

Good for you! I am so bad at getting things in the mail! I should think of something to tackle for next Tuesday.

ThoughtfulMom said...

Yeah for you! And for Holly - may it arrive unmelted and tasty and sometime this month.

I'm thrilled that it doesn't have to go by goat or boat.

i see you avoided the whole accountability thing by calling it a "boost". (snicker)

i love it! congratulations for tackling it.
