I think Meriweather put us all to shame! :cutie: I received a BOX full of stuff today!
Here are just what she had listed, for now. I will post everything later. (There were votive candles inside that made the box smell OH SO GOOD. :love: )

Kool-Aide - multiple packets
Kirkland batteries (I think my Mickey TV remote is needing some now! Great timing!)
Kleenex travel packet
Ketchup
Kisses -- Hershey's style. (I am having a chocolate day today too. ;) )
Keyring, Minnie locket from the DS.
Knife, pocket
Kitty stickers
Kitten, plush stuffed

Very, very cool. I needed that today too! :hug:

3) 3 scented Yankee Candles votives
4) 2 snack packages of something written in Japanese. :rotfl: Look like little green snack crackers.

6) A Chilly Willy foam magnet (Very cute and I like CW and penguins in general -- Mary Poppins....)
7) Cute little stuffed black and white kitten
8) Toohbrush travel kit, from Tokyo! Now THAT'S something you don't see every day!

10) a black shopping tote

LOL...well, I am in cleaning mode ;)
So....if I am mailing a flat rate box (and from here, it ends up that is the best way for most of them), I am going to FILL it!! :rotfl:
Hope you like it all.

the green Japanese packs are soybeans...dried snack ones.
DH was in Tokoyo and they had those kits in the rooms ....everyday. So, he brought a bunch home...and I am passing them on.

I opened one of the Tokyo packets just now for a taste. Not bad at all. The taste reminds me of Chicken In A Biscuit crackers.

I just checked my DC and it still says accepted at the PO on 2/27/07. The other 4 packages that I sent with this one all arrived on 3/1/07. What is holding this package up?

Luv2Roam
03-03-2007, 05:21 PM
I use Del Conf a lot on pin packages.
Usually the receiving post office will scan the same day they receive in for that day's delivery and show as delivered. There have been a few times where the item never does read delivered, but accepted.
My understanding is some post offices do it different -- scan prior to delivering, or when it arrives at their facility and then it never reads delivered.
It could also be that person has their mail on hold for later pick up.

Here is a shocker for you
My post office decided to hold the girls packages until they "saw" me

their reasoning Well we know when you get one there are normally a bunch more behind it so that is why we didn't send you a notice

"we knew you would be in eventually"

THAT IS THE FINAL STRAW

I lodged an offical complaint with the Post Master General yesterday

I reshipped new packages to both our K people and two others

one to the UK again (at 16.00 shipping) I was Beyond MAD

so I went to the neighboring town and got a PO box

that will be what I use for any future exchanges

so anyway

both the girls got there Exchanges

Jessica recieved from Kimberly

Kathleen Francour puzzle
kit kats
Kayla (movie)
KBI design paper
Kitchen timer
Kiddie Mix Candy

and Erica recieved

a nice exchange from Someone in TX

she wrote out a list for me on scrap paper and put it bythe computer
and DH tossed it on a cleaning spree

but from memory some things she got

a candy jewlery KIT
a large KIT KAT
Kitty paper
Kleenex packs
a Kitchen towel

hope we got it all

Thank very much
and the ones we sent should be there today or tomorrow :thumbsup2

Glad she also got these goodies...looks like I should have just shipped them in the same box since you had all that trouble with the po.

My post office is also in a neighboring town. Don't know that my local one is like yours, but I know the people in the neighboring town (it's where I work) and I just feel better about it. Hope it works out for you as well as it has for me.
