Finally got a delivery estimate: Thursday evening. Considering the post office is closed tomorrow, that's effectively a full week later. The FedEx-to-post-office packages arrived only a couple of days past the hand-off, IIRC.
The kiddo has spent the last two days doing the "is it here yet? is it here yet? is it here yet?" dance and repeatedly checking the mailbox, porch, and all the usual spots that delivery services leave things.
I've been at home, sick, for the last 2 days, which means when the SSD for the new computer FINALLY arrived, I spent the afternoon installing the drive, Windows, all the drivers, and key applications, including a game the kiddo has been wanting to play for ages (but couldn't due to hardware specs on the old PC).
And coughing and sneezing a lot.
This afternoon, after school, he finally got to play it!
For 10 minutes, before the power went out.
To my amazement and relief, he took it in stride, even as the power kept fluctuating for the next hour.
I've had a cold lurking in the background for several weeks and I'm not looking forward to when it finally breaks through in full force...
Fortunately our almost 4 months old #BeardGrabber still seems without any cold symptoms himself. The first time he gets sick is something I'm even less looking forward too. :(
Good to heard your kid finally got to play his game though! Sounds like he's a real trooper when it comes to dealing with disappointments. ;)
