I miss camping, & I especially miss floating down the river in an innertube…or a canoe…I need to do that…Soon!

Oh man I wish we had one of those! :P
(either a canoe or inner tube)

Hey guys, I’m sorry, life just keeps kicking me in the proverbial balls. We had to put down our family dog last week. I’ve been staying at my mom’s looking for a new apartment, we just packed up my tea this weekend to bring it to her place. Tomorrow also marks 18 years since my dad passed away.

I promise life cannot do anything else to me & the box will be out by Wednesday the latest!

The box is on it’s way to Sil!

I am really sorry for the additional hold up!

Sil select said

Just hope things are going better for you! I will holler as soon as it arrives and get it to IB ASAP :)

I hate to do this but….Is there any way my name can be removed from the list? For the last month or so I have really been put off by flavoured teas, so much so that I just can’t stomach them. The smell makes me sort of…nauseous. I have so many flavoured teas but I just can’t look at them. No idea what caused it.

If not then I will still be happy to receive and send on. Not sure most teas will be for me at the present time. Sorry. :(

Pregnant? ;)

It sounds it but no I’m not pregnant. I’m certain of that because my ovaries are in the wrong place so I can’t have children…so I have been told anyway.

I can’t explain it…just really put off with flavoured teas. I try them but lately they just taste chemical and unpleasant. Just some sort of crazy phase I think.

Sil select said

Oh man. Hope that sorts itself out soon.

momo said

yeah it’s fine at this point if it just comes home I’ll be content, and that sounds terrible I wouldn’t even want to be around tea :(

Keeping fingers crossed!

The Curse of the Traveling Teabox – ooga booga!

Nothing yet but my neighbour is keeping watch to let me know while I’m up at the cottage. I was going to ask if we have a tracking number to see where it’s at. What drives me bonkers is something else that I sent to a Canadian address took like 2 days to get there…consistency much? Eeesh…

Yeah, this box has had a rough go of it this time around!

I sometimes think one of the main sorting plants here ( Mississauga) is having some problems either with a computer/scanning system issue or human error. I once watched a tracked item get processes at this plant 6 times before it actually made it to me. Whether it just was miss sorted and was distributed to the wrong locals or whether there is some labour relations issue ( wouldn’t be surprising considering the culture at Canada Post) I don’t know. If it is a software issue maybe it is systems wide.

Update! The tea box has landed! Yes, that’s right it’s here live and in person, direct from Tattoeed_Tea :) I’ll be passing it along to Indigobloom as soon as possible this week so we can get this thing rolloing again. Looks like i get to pull samples out tonight! :)

Allrighty I am getting ready to send the box out again! My how we trust the post service…
Also, I need Ssajami’s mailing address. I’m following Ssajami but she(he?) isn’t following me yet… Hmmm! must investigate

ssajami said

Definitely a she :) Sorry I’m only responding now. I’m on the other side of the world – daytime in North America is night-time here, so I only end up seeing posts hours later.

Yay! I’m so glad the box is actually continuing. I had been looking forward to the box, but had sort of given up hope that it would continue on, given all the issues with the post. I hope that international mail is better than the domestic.

Indigobloom, I’ve followed you and PM you my address.

There you are! :)
This has been a seriously CRAZY week. My boss just got back from vacation (the visiting family kind, not the relaxing type) and this our rewards and benefits week, which means we are on stage every day lol
Anyhow, I will send the box out asap but I haven’t been able to take a proper lunch break and the post office has been closing before I get there! (well i knew that in advance, not like i carted it there only to be disappointed)
My point is… soon!! ;D

ssajami said

Given the past issues with this box, I’m just glad there IS a box to send. No worries, send it when you can.

LOL good point! :)
I’ll let you know when I can come up for air again.

bump – any updates?

I’ve been swamped at work, and then went to pack the box and it was too big for the box! I only added a little bit at that point :*(
So I am looking for a bigger one but most that I have found are either wayyyyy to big or too small. Going to try and take out some more tea before repacking again tomorrow

momo said

Sounds like you need to play a game of tea tetris. I am TERRIBLE. I think it was when the box first came back from Terri, I was putting everything back in and failed miserably.

Sil select said

haha i made sure i could pack it before i gave it to you…just didn’t feel like packing it and taping it since you were getting it right away. :)

yep, Tetris indeed! I didn’t see how it was initially packed so I am sure that doesn’t help.
But yah, Sil, definitely made no sense to wrap it all up for me! I’ had to take some more tea out though. Weighed it on our scale in the mailroom at work and it was at 830g!!! :/

P.S. this went out awhile ago! I just haven’t been able to post since the only place I’ve been able to log on is at work and they block the forums :/

bumping this to see if there are any updates? this one will be coming back to me after I think, but if anyone might be interested we can add a couple more cause I’ll not be sending this one back out and just stick with one in the future.
