If found please deliver directly to the address that has been CLEARLY typed up and taped SECURELY to the top of package. If delivered by a U.S.P.S. employee....... demand an explanation!!! (Not like they'll have one anyway but someone should be expected to apologize.)
Apparently even if you pay for Priority 2-3 Day Service the postal service won't even go looking for your package until it has been missing for 30 days. That's really sad if our family doesn't get their Christmas presents until the end of January.
Almost like last year when it really was my fault for procrastinating and getting the box mailed late. I thought I was doing better this time by giving it a week to get there... Maybe next year I'll shoot for mailing it a month in advance.
Here's the sad part for you- I can't post all the seriously awesome presents we made on my blog until this box shows up! Otherwise it wouldn't remain a surprise for the recipients!
