Mail out complete!

Jazzy girl and I braved the border crossing on Saturday morning. Peace Arch actually wasn't too bad - we got through in about half an hour.

The line up at the Post Office was pretty long, but moving quickly, and we were out of there in about half an hour.

Between the two of us, we had many packages to send:

pkgs

13 packages and about 20 cards. It looks like a stack of macaroni, I know -Jazzy taped up the boxes with macaroni duct tape. All the holiday tape seemed somewhat passe.

I already heard from three people that they got their packages today - wow, USPS is FAST, man!

Re: wow,
it was - I was up till very late trying to tetris cookies into boxes.

Much cheaper than mailing from here, too... it was only about $100 to mail it all, including one box that I sent to Finland that was $25 by itself. Not bad at all.

Umm, I have to ask, since I'm going away for the holidays, did you send something for me, and will it fit through a relatively small mail slot...

I leave tomorrow, and I have no idea how long I'll be gone (past new years at least, might be most of January), and I wouldn't want anything to be sent back because they can't reach me :/ (They hold packages usually for two weeks until they are sent back)

Yes I did, as a matter of fact.

the boxes that look like macaroni, stacked up in a pile - one of those is destined for you. The size is 8-5/8" x 5-3/8" x 1-5/8"

I have a customs form number but no tracking number.

they said 6-10 business days. I dropped in Saturday, so I don't expect it will reach you till Friday at earliest, or next Monday.

Oh dear, I'm not entirely sure if it will fit through the slot. It might, tightly, but a lot depends on whether the mailman want's to push it :D (the slot is about 3,5-4cm, and the package is a bit over 4cm thick if I converted the measurements right) Softer packages have come through well, but a cardboard box I'm not sure of.

But it's good to know something is on the way, I may have to order a temporary mail redirection to the address I'll be staying at, But don't worry, I'll try to sort this out somehow :)

And thank you in advance! ^_^ I was just expecting the card we agreed on :) (Now I wish I would have made something for you!)

Anyways, Happy Holidays! ^_^

No worries - it's just cookies, not a diamond ring.

I hope it goes through, but if not... next time I need to ask people if they have plans to go away before I send stuff.

Have a wonderful time on your vacation!

Cookies! \o/ ^_^

I've redirected my mail starting from next Monday, hope that'll do the trick :) Now I will get all the Christmas cards to this address too, yay!

And thank you, I will! ^_^
