Great Sigh of Relief

1. Mailed sweater February 20 to Kerrie Allman for her upcoming book, airmail. Nice lady at the counter says "4-8 days." Foolishly, I believe her.
2. According to tracking number, sweater leaves country through O'Hare on February 24.
3. Trail dries up.
4. Amy and Kerrie worry.
5. Amy and Kerrie worry some more.
6. Kerrie has adorable new baby.
7. Amy and Kerrie keep worrying.
8. Kerrie makes lots of calls to post office.
9. Amy makes lots of calls to post office.
10. Miraculously, today, it arrives. Safely.

And on the day Spring Break starts too. Does it get any better?

Phew..I hate mailing or waiting to receive important stuff. I always sweat a little. Hope you're feeling better and have a good spring break.

Can't spell - that's why I deleted the previous. Anyway, glad your package arrived because I know how frustrating that can be. Enjoy the spring break!

Enjoy your vacation!

I've been through that with a package sent to the UK, they could track it out of Canada but it went missing st Heathrow, I held my breath for a couple days & was thrilled when it showed up, missed it's photo shoot though so they had to reschedule. Glad it worked out for you!
