    A Couple of Yuletide Elf Haiku
    -by AlterClaus
    -for Tiffany01


    Late again, I know!
    Had to buy pony shoes
    Darn expensive things.

    Sleep is for the weak
    Wrapping gifts is for the elves
    Shipping for the deer.

    The postal reindeer
    (does that mean that they are nuts?)
    Will leave tomorrow.

    Ack, I can not get my alter to work! Does anyone else get nervous after the package is sent out, waiting for the response of your giftee? Package was sent out on Monday (according to DH, who kindly packaged and shipped it while I am stuck in Atlanta) I am so excited waiting to see if they liked what they got!
    To my Elf, if you are in the same predicament, I have not been to my home address in 2 weeks, I will be there tomorrow and if Santa left me anything I will be quick to post it.

Unfortunately of the various teams heading to Combined Driving-Flying Events last weekend, several withdrew unexpectedly. A local flu outbreak led to the last being spun at the jog-up, leaving me without carriers. We are hoping that next weekend’s teams will pass inspection and wing your way with the box on Saturday.

    Where'd my giftee go?

    No worries, unless you didn't find the directions for receiving the first half of your prezzie in your email inbox. Let me know if you found it or not, so I know if I need to chase it down for you. Second half is coming!

    Santa shipped yesterday to Colorado-should get there by Saturday or Monday-if UPS's sleighs are not too busy.

    Fell cyber orcs! They won't let my edits get through! Where's a good axe-swinging digital dwarf when an elf needs one? Never fear, I have Rohirrim lined up to carry the second half of your present to you. They ask if your PO box does boxes, or should they visit you at home?

    giftee-
    Good news! Your presents will be in the mail tomorrow morning. The last things finally arrived! They are in two packages, since I couldn't fit it all in one box. Most are wrapped, but a couple are not. Please feel free to open when you get it- I'm so excited and nervous I can't wait til Christmas! I stayed in budget...if you don't count the things I brought home from work...or the escapee present...or that last thing I found online...well...I REALLY hope you like it all...safe journey!

    My elf went over the top! A Horseware tote bag, socks, earrings, chocolate, peppermints (hubby actually claimed those), and treats for the pony. We're all spoiled. A BIG thanks to my elf!

    Still no news from my elf, but I'm optomistic that they are out there! But my giftee did get her presents! I had a custom portrait done of one of her horses! I also send some yummy Moonstruck Chocolates and tons of FoalingAround soaps and body goodies.

    FYI- I highly recommend Debbie Sampson for Equine Art. She was fast, and my giftee says the portrait is dead on!

    I know my giftee's second and final package has arrived in her state, so now I'm wondering even more when she'll get it, if she'll like everything, etc. Exciting!!

    Either way, I had a blast doing this and I hope you love your gifts as much as I love mine!!
    When the elves do the matching, we try and pick folks in different states, and different interests. However, there are times when we have to trade between two folks, if say they are late entries, or the only two in their money amount group. Glad it worked out though! =)

    Still no word from my Stelf. I hope said Stelf is just so busy she/he does not have time to post. This just makes me hurry home every night to see if the postman brought me anything. So far he has only brought me stuff I ordered for myself for my birthday I love seeing what everyone else got. Some of us are very good gifters

    Oh my gosh, I have such a generous elf! I can't wait until it arrives!

    I seem to go over every year, but it's hard to control myself -- horse shopping is so fun!
