    Thought I'd share this. First off, though, I have to saw that I've ordered many times from Nancy's Notions and always have been very pleased with my purchases. But this is a funny situation...

    Order was shipped from WI on 1/12. Made it to a Fed Ex station in Massachusetts, made it to my own home town, then went up the highway a bit to a town about 45 minutes away from here, then went to New Jersey, now it's on its way from another town in Massachusetts (as of 1/20). I don't know if the snow has played a part in all of this but it is making me curious.
    I'll be glad when it makes it here!

    LOL that is quite a journey :D
    I have heard of this happening with other packages, but thankfully not a really common occurance.

    One pkg a friend sent, traveled all over the eastern half of the USA before finding it's way home LMBO It was comical following it from state to state, we were taking bets on which direction it was going to head next :D:D:D

    Logistics is always a funny thing. For example with Fedex you could send an overnight package from lets say Atlanta to within another address in Atlanta (which should make it very easy right) but it still has to go through their main processing hub in Tennessee... and so it will leave Atlanta only to come back to it. I guess that's how their earn their shipping and handling fees, LOL. At least I know those sky high prices get my package a free trip somewhere in the USA or elsewhere in the world without me!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    I don't know if this is still the case, but years ago I had a boyfriend who lived out in the country from a small town about 20 miles from the larger town I lived in. If we wrote each other letters (which teenagers did back then) it took as much as two weeks for them to be delivered. First it went to our PO, then to Waco, then to Dallas, then to Corsicana, then to the PO in his little town, then to his RFD box at their farm or vice versa. I got letters from him for a couple of weeks after we broke up!

    The tracking site says that it's back in my home town again - waiting at the P.O. I hope it doesn't get rerouted again and that it's here on Monday. The kicker is that one of my neighbor's works for FedEx and usually he just brings anything for us home with him. Maybe he's on vacation!

    In 1980 I spent a year in Ottawa,Canada. My mom sent me a letter I never recieved.I received all the other letters just that one never came. A year later I returned home to NC. 6 months later the letter she sent me was returned to her with Guam posted on it. I suppose it went around the world. LOL
