My parents and grandparents sent us a box on May 2nd.
Normally, this wouldn’t be a huge deal…we would be concerned that it was lost, but generally all the boxes eventually arrive. This particular box, however, had a special gift inside.
Cheese. Not just any cheese, but Tillamook Cheese.
We fully expected to get a box that stunk to high heaven, but much to our surprise, most of the cheese was still edible (not the wet slices)! I know to most of you that sounds entirely disgusting. 18 months ago, I would have died before eating month old, unrefrigerated cheese. Now, however, the desire for good cheese trumps all the disgusting factors. And a little in my defense, the cheese was frozen, packed in an insulated bag with an ice pack. Yes. I know those wouldn’t have mattered after 2 days, but let me tell myself that, okay?
We were truly thrilled to open this box! We haven’t received a box in awhile and had forgotten just how encouraging it is to open a box full of treats from home!! We have really been living it up with all the candy that was inside…maybe overindulging a bit, but Im pretty sure there is a rule that says one can never eat too much chocolate…or colored-filling Oreos…
