Though I'm not actually sticking my head in the mailbox. It's wet out there!
Florida: It's just wet.
Good News! I GOT A BOX!
It's from Amazon Fulfillment Center. I'll post pics in a bit after I make dinner. XD
Day 2. :(
I don't even have a mailbox to do this.
I gave Matt my work address for Santa to ship my gift to, so if the package doesn't arrive today, there won't be an opening before Christmas since we're off Monday. Sigh.
OMG I'm super exited! two more days and I'll get to open my gift
*notices packages of kitchen table*
*notices to label*
Pretty much everyone who delivers here (OnTrac, USPS, FedEX, UPS) has been here, and no package. I'm fairly frustrated, but I feel justifiably so. I don't think I'll post on this again until a package appears, if it does at this rate...
I am just waiting for my santee to say anything, even saying he didnt get it yet would be an improvement.
Hopefully Matt is following up on the missing and/or unopened items.
I haven't gotten anything. I can't complain too much though, since my Santee hasn't posted that he's gotten his package either. I sent that thing out over two weeks ago. I'm more pissed about his not arriving than I am bummed about not getting anything.
We also had a pretty serious snowstorm over the past two days, so that would account for a delay in getting here.
Hey Brian, I'm your Santa. I posted the parcel on Friday the 7th and according to the DHL tracking calculator it arrived in the US (from Germany) on the 10th. After that it isn't possible to track it online. I'm really sorry that you haven't had your parcel yet and I wish I could tell you what the holdup is.
I know my Santa got half my present, the other half didn't have tracking, but was just a regular letter so hopefully it made it there OK. I just don't know if they've opened it yet.
Hey Iain, thanks so much for letting me know. Please don't think I'm upset with you or anything, just with the situation. I appreciate your efforts, truly. :)
A package arrived at the door just an hour or so ago (go go hardworking UPS drivers!). I even had to sign for it.
Have not opened it yet.
No gift yet, but not that worried about it. I can wait :).
Okay, now I'm a little worried because my package should have arrived Thursday or Friday (at least that's what the postman said). No word from my Santee.
Was there a blizzard or something in the midwest?
Working for an airline I can most definately confirm there has been a big storm in the midwest. As I have had people yelling at me over the past 2 days that we can't control the weather and make their flight get where the needed to go.
Matt Bowyer is there any way to make sure that my Santee at least got everything in one piece? :(
Everybody knows that only Obama can control the weather.
Having recovered from four hours of sleep by sleeping for nearly thirteen, I am back online and checking in now.
My gift has arrived! Pictures will be posted in the opening thread today - thank you Santa!
package claimed form the postal office, opened, cuddled and loved! photos will soon be uploaded :D
I'm de-stickying the thread but feel free to update with post-holiday updates!
Brian Rubin and others, did your gifts ever arrive?
IainC, your box arrived finally! Yay! It's fairly banged up, but I'm hoping the stuff inside is okay! :) I'll open it tonight and report back in the opening thread! Thank you!! :)
Woot! So glad that it arrived and that your long vigil in front of the mailbox is now over.
ME too man, thanks so much. I felt a lot better about things once you told me it was on the way. :) Happy new year!
SwitchKnitter I am now being inundated with Amazon bargains for all things knitting. ;)
Today was the first day I attempted explaining to co-workers that I had a secret santa thingee with internet forum friends. It was met with a mixture of confusion, fear and pointing and laughing ;)
Matt Bowyer , how many people are still waiting?
That sounds like how my wife would feel about it too!
This is my first day back at work after an eleven-day vacation, so the answer is "I don't know." I will be going through very soon and checking people off to see who has not received a gift yet.
Anything good? :D
Dear Secret Santee: I promise it's coming. >.<
I dunno. What is a Sterling Silver Knitting Wool Basket Bead used for? It is 56% off!!!
I've never heard of one of those. *looks it up on Amazon* Oh, it's a bead for a bracelet. Not actual knitting tool. Good, I was worried there was a tool I'd never heard of...
Gosh, I hope I get
Elyscape next year!
