Our mail service here has always been sub par, but things got here intact at least, now there stories from all across our province that mail is being opened, mostly cards, and I haven't received my moms card yet...she sent a cheque.

I feel like a huge failure that I couldn't get the stupid gifts here on time.
What does tracking say? We had an order dropped off around 6pm here from Amazon Prime/UPS.

When I checked at like 7pm it said it was on time to be delivered today, before 8pm. But it had just been checked out of KY at 6:40 . As I was looking around it updated and said there will be a 1-2 day delay.

There are news articles now saying thousands-millions of packages from UPS are delayed, they simply had too many come through to process.

Yep I have a few tangled up in that myself, three are out there somewhere, well in Edmonton to be precise, and I ordered the one order over a week ago, with prime...thankfully the dogs don't know how to read calendars

Amazon sent out an email, is refunding shipping charges, and is issuing a $20 credit on my account for the delay. I didn't contact them first, I'm assuming they are doing this for everyone that has delayed packages. I still would have liked my stuff when it was supposed to be here, but I'm impressed with Amazon stepping up-it wasn't even THEIR fault, technically, it was UPS.

At least Amazon is refunding your shipping prices. Amazon is striking here and I ordered something (via prime) last wednesday, that should have arrived thursday. Well they started striking wednesday (I had already ordered) and my package is still in limbo

Also, my actual vent: Zora accidently knocked out a piece of my front tooth (its actually really not her fault, her tooth knocked against mine, and mine was not as strong) so now I have to go to the dentist. =/

Decided to try to sleep instead of eat when I was hungry at midnight.

It's now 5am and I'm fully awake, starving. Also haven't slept for more than 15 minutes at a time. Bad decisions.

My family is convinced I am going to starve to death if I don't eat wheat, unless I immediately replace it with rice flour or some other kind of gluten free flour and also did you know there's a gluten free section at the grocery store with cookies and things in it????

sigh.
