Obsessive UPS Tracking?

So I've never tracked anything from FedEx or UPS before. I always figured my orders would come when they come. Until now. Here is the status of my postcard STDs:

LocationDateLocal TimeDescription
GREENSBORO , NC , US08/17/20091:06 P.M.ARRIVAL SCAN
LOUISVILLE , KY , US08/17/20093:02 A.M.DEPARTURE SCAN
LOUISVILLE , KY , US08/14/200911:07 P.M.ARRIVAL SCAN
08/14/200910:56 P.M.DEPARTURE SCAN
08/14/20097:04 P.M.ORIGIN SCAN
US08/13/20098:54 P.M.BILLING INFORMATION RECEIVED

Tracking results provided by UPS: 08/17/2009 4:19 P.M. ET


They were printed and shipped much faster than I had expected, but all weekend they just sat in Louisville!!! Now they are so close (Greensboro is less than an hour from me) but I won't get them until tomorrow according to UPS. Maybe they'll be delivered by mid-morning, in which case I can look at them on my way back to lab from an off-campus meeting. Cross your fingers everyone!


I'm really excited because the STDs are the first concrete "thing" since my e-ring. The prospect of sending them out and officially publicizing the date make it all seem so much more real. Unlike my dress, which I've ordered but won't receive until next year some time, or the flowers which I won't see until wedding day, or the invitations which are a blur of ideas in my head, the STDs are complete (yay, I can finally check something off my to-do list. Almost.) and I will have them in hand by tomorrow. I just hope I didn't make some major typo that none of my proofers caught.


What one event/item made your marriage seem more of a reality, and less of a far-off dream? Was there something that made it hit home?

my invitations got hung up with UPS for a couple of days and they didn't update the site for 3 days which drove me absolutely crazy! but they arrived, and went out and we're receiving RSVPs so all is good :)
