Simple Pleasures

As some regular readers know, my Mom got her first computer about a year and a half ago. Since then she's mastered many computer activities. Email, Web Browsing, Chat, Online Bingo, Google, and more. This Christmas she's doing her first real venturing into online shopping.

Interestingly, her favorite part of this process seems to be using the online, package tracking systems. Part of her regular morning routine -- actually, many times a day -- is to check on the location of her latest purchase.

"It's in Chelmsford," she announced from her keyboard yesterday.

Then this morning she said, "Two days ago it was in Californina. Yesterday morning it was in Chelmsford, and last night it arrived in Lynnfield. It left Lynnfield at 9:26 this morning. I think it's gonna be delivered some time today."

[UPDATE: In the comments area, Mom says, "12:06 PM Package delivered. That's one more Christmas gift checked off."]
