What did they do . . .

. . .bug my house?! Recently I gushed about Amazon answering a silent wish of mine- to be able to add anything to a wish list from anywhere on the web. Well they must have had a camera in my kitchen a few weeks ago as I tried to extract my new cell phone and was reduced to banging it on the counter in cave womanly manor confounded by the "clam shell" style plastic packaging that has become so favored by manufacturers these days. Or maybe Big Brother had been dispatched to the playroom as mountains of twist ties piled up and Wilson nearly wet himself waiting on me to open up his birthday gifts (you know the opening up that's not nearly as fun as the ripping off of bright paper and ribbons- the opening up that requires yard shears, heavy duty gloves, 4 letter words, and a professional manicure to repair the damage). Today they announced this new initiative . . .




"Thanks" just doesn't seem to cover it. I'll be drying tears of joy if anyone needs me.

Hallelujah! That has been another one of the (lesser) adjustments to grandparenting also--the way they package things since y'all were little is incredible. Thank goodness they have listened to the complaints of the public--and thank you for informing the rest of us! :)

Oh my word--seriously! I saw that yesterday and I was pretty excited. I just told Adam about it and I think a wordy dird slipped just talking about the terrible packaging.
