Tracking

Ok, I just have to give praise to the wonders of the Internet and how it opens up vast channels of information, particularly for those of us which are just a touch controlling and like to know what is happening with their stuff at all times. The particular bit of technology with I am currently very pleased with is the joys of tracking packages.

Sure, sure, tracking the traffic or where my lovey is on his journey on a plane is fine too, but don't you just love that you can click on a little link to find out where your particular package is on its route to a loved one you are gifting, or perhaps that special little gift to yourself you just can't wait to have in your very own hands.

Lately I have been shipping lots of things around for the wedding and such and I will be the first to admit that I LOVE CONTROL (which I am learning to reign in these days before I explode). I love that I can go to a site to see that my mosquito netting to shield the cake from Oak leaves is now in Mesquite, TX and should be arriving at my office on Friday. Or I can call Eric's aunt to let her know that FedEx left her granddaughter's dress by her front door, since she usually goes into her house through her garage.

LOVE IT!

Track on, sister.

I call my man, "lovey", too. :)

Tracking is a wonderful thing. If it wasn't for tracking, I would be bombarded with questions form my daughter wondering where her American Girl stuff got to. Nothing like having an impatient tween!

You are so right. The kind of control that tracking provides creates a sense of sanity and calm that is priceless.

You keep on tracking, girlfriend.

I'm right there with you! Love tracking packages, knowing where they are, when they'll be here, etc. Esp with Maya, when she orders a book or something, she wants it NOW, and it's nice to be able to say, "It's in Richmond...it will probably be here tomorrow...."

I get fairly obsessed with tracking packages. It's a fault, for sure.

Tracking is definately one of the best things invented!
