Just when I thought (and said, and wrote that) I didn’t notice or care about the national postal strike, my three kids went off to summer camp.  The no-electricity-no-electronics camps, remember?  So, as I am anxiously preparing three loving I-Miss-You care packages to be devotedly sent off before they have even left for camp (believe me, you are not saying anything right now that I haven’t already heard from my husband!), my heart stops beating:  Oh no!  How are these going to get there???!!!  I am suddenly frantically scouring FedEx and UPS sites for rates knowing full well the shipping costs for these three packages will be ten times the value of their contents (believe me, you are not saying anything right now that I haven’t already heard from my husband!).

Alas, the postal workers were legislated back to work (what a happy work environment Canada Post must be) and I shipped off my three packages before camp drop –off day.  I can also now stand daily at my Superbox staring blankly into Box#5 waiting for the daily mail delivery, hoping for return letters from  my three campers (believe me, you are not saying anything right now that I haven’t already heard from my husband).

No news is good news, right?

  • Ok, I am not going to say anything your husband said, but I will say you made me laugh. You know those three kids of yours are smiling and will love you regardless.
