My wonderful husband ordered me the two books I mentioned in another post for Valentine’s Day, DIY Totemism and Skin Spirits by Lupa Greenwolf, and they were supposed to arrive on Saturday.
Due to the weather and the holiday Monday, they were running late, only showing up online as delivered today.
Unfortunately we never got them. The local mail carrier says she left the box between our screen door and front door, but there is no trace of the box now.
She was nice enough to stop by after completing her route to talk to us, and show my husband where she left our package.
I checked the snowbanks around the door, the back door, the mailbox, and my husband asked all of our adjoined neighbors if they had received it by accident, but alas. It was nowhere to be found.
My husband has talked to Amazon, and after 7pm tomorrow, we can report them as lost, and be able to get a replacement or refund.
I had to lay down for a nap once we found out the box was lost or stolen, I got an almost instant migraine from the sadness, anger and feeling violated.
I know that this will be resolved, but for now, I just feel sadness wrapped in a feeling of “wrongness” at having something like this happen.
On the heels of that sadness is a raging fury at someone daring to steal from us, and I am not sure what to do about it.
Our mail carrier said this is not the first time packages have gone missing in our neighborhood, it is just the first time for us.
