Postal Strike is Over

So here in Canada we are finally supposed to get mail. The US has been holding back any mail from there so stuff from there should take awhile. Alhumdullilah Shukr doesn't use Canada post or I would still not have my dresses. I can't wait to get some things in the mail again. How about you? Did you get anything today? Did you finally mail something out? Did you turn to couriers? Email? I kept getting calls from companies telling me I could pay my bills online during the strike. How much did the strike affect you? For poor souls like me in little towns it a big bother as we couldn't get any packages all this time or order anything either. Small places like this really rely on the postal service.

    I feel bad for the postal workers, I would have liked to see them get what they deserve. At the same time it'll be nice to get my mail again, anything we get is mostly just silly things like coupons or freebies since we pay all our bills online anyway

  2. Salams, I've been waiting on 3 packages (some hijabs, some abayas, and some Arabic language stuff). Also some letters/postcards from around the world (for my daycare) I also have stuff that I want to send out, but needed to wait for everything to be over with....

    I didn't realize how much I relied on the post. Never got anything at all today -- hoping to get something by the end of the week!

    Nice to see you here. I guess for you it wasn't too much of an inconvenience then.

    I am also waiting for 3 things too. I did get mail today but it was all boring and not what I was waiting for.

    For etsy owners like my daughter its been a big pain as they can't send anything out.
