Sorry guys- slow to communicate these past few days

As many of you know, my husband is out of town for three weeks. While this is not that big of a deal, it means I am doing all the running around with teh kids, taking care of the yard, house,e tc. Well, it seems my house and yard are booby trapped. First the shower head broke off, spraying water EVERYWHERE like a fire hose. Then teh mower broke. Finally, yesterday I had to have an emergency root canal and have just been wiped out. I am doing my darndest to get back on track, but wanted to let those know who have been trying to reach me that I am not deliberately being slow to communicate, nor ignoring anyone I feel like I have been hit by a truck, and am still trying to juggle two young daughters and their schedules as well as the fish room, etc. Thanks for your patience!

as long as we go express, the cold packs should be suitable. We can also have the package held at teh post office, if you like, so it is not traveling as much. Just let me know.

I would recommend the "hold at post office" option. They can be set to notify you via phone when it arrives. Keeps the package in air conditioned places (at the PO rather than in the back of a delivery vehicle) and means you don't have to worry about it sitting in a mailbox or on a doorstep even temporarily.

Hold at post office is a terrific service. Just make sure you have the mail held at the post office that normally handles your mail, and not the closest post office in general.

Maybe my post office is exceptionally dim, but I spend 20 minutes on the phone explaining that i need to pick up a hold for pickup package, no the postman did not leave a card because it's hold for pick up. Then an additional 10 minutes while they tell me they don't offer hold for pickup and they need my post office box number.

yes,what is most helpful for that service, is the address of teh post office to hold it. When we print labels, there are often 3 or 4 post offices to choose from.
