All Good News Today!

Turns out I do own plenty of cat litter. After our suprise shipment yesterday I called the company this morning and they were as confused as I was, LOL.

A few hours later the nicest lady called back apologizing profusely and asking what I wanted done. Turns out she was hoping I had a cat and wanted some litter because to get someone to come and get it and transport it back would have been pretty expensive but they assured me it was not a problem to do it. I ASSURED them it was one of the coolest things that had happened to me and I would be tickled pink to keep it.

So,...because I believe in Karma and paying it forward, bad juju and all that stuff, I packed up a portion of the litter and brought it to the local shelter-so I even got to do a good deed.

I had said I would like to try a dog food they have and I think they saw the numbers in my house address and thought that each number was the number of bags I wanted of each type of litter. Seems like a really odd mistake but we all had a good laugh, she said that had never happened before and I assured her that no such thing had ever happened to me either.

SO THE FUNNIEST PART OF THIS WHOLE INCIDENT WAS.....a few hours after I got things straightened out and delivered some of the kittie litter to less fortunate kitties, .......guess what happened.......wait for it.....

YEP, the UPS guy pulled up and delivered two MORE boxes of litter and the origional shipment of dog food.

On another good front-since I broke my poor little foot in an unfortunate crash with Cricket while doing agility.....I had just been in sorry shape. At first I had to stay off my feet and I got TERRIBLY out of shape, EMBARRASSINGLY out of shape, it was really sad and embarrassing and I had no idea how out of shape I was until I went to enter our first trial a few months ago. I was so afraid to do that first trial because Cricket is a fast dog and I felt bad about what I let happen to myself.

Since fall my knees and feet have hurt ALL THE TIME and It is so hard to try to get in shape when it hurts to move and I was just getting scared I was on a down hill spiral and might have to get my knees replaced. After having them broken a couple of times and having had surgery on one of them years ago, I have always known eventually I will probably have to have that done, but I want to hold off as long as possible.

SOOOOOOO the happy part is that I found some knee exercises and started doing some easy yoga which is helping the opposing muscles and about a week ago I had the first time I ran agiity with Cricket and I was way far behind her and not able to keep up but it was because I was out of breath and out of shape, but it was NOT because it hurt. I was so excited, out of shape I know what to do about ;-). I am really hoping to be in better shape by the Spring Agility Camp the end of May--GOOOOOOO TEAM CRICKET!!!!

Oh my God!!!! I am seriously laughing so hard! I can't even imagine how a mistake like that could be made!

I'm really glad you're able to help your knee. Agility should be fun for both parts of the team!

It was seriously so funny the lady I talked to was so worried I was mad, and kept saying they were figuring I did not even have a cat ;-), and here I was just hoping I got some kittie litter, LOL, she kept saying this has never happened and of course I assured her it had never happened before to me either, but if a mistake had to be made, hey make mistakes like that every day when I benefit that much!!! LOL

Kathy said...

ps but the priceless moment was when the ups truck came again with the same driver, LOL, what were the chances of that?

Steffi said...

So glad to hear that your knees are feeling better!

Priscilla said...

What a nice surprise and it's so funny!

So glad that your knees are getting better too!

Chris and Ricky said...

Once again Sara was too funny! Glad you got to keep all that litter and share it with the shelter too. Crazy and funny!

So Happy to read you are feeling well enough to start getting back in the "groove" :-) I herniated a disk in my back and it was very frustrating and depressing putting on weight and so quickly getting out of shape just because you can't move. I use a ball to work my core to keep my back in line (hehe)very low impact but the bouncing for cardio is fun! It has taken a year to get back to "normal". Good luck moving forward!

Wow!
What Spring agility clinic? Hope you post about it!

Hahahahaha hope you open all those boxes at once and make the most seriously big kitty litter box in the world---nothing as satisfying as digging in a big clean box of litter... glad your knees are getting better!! Those joints should have been designed better...
