Okay, now I’m a little worried

Reading foreign service blogs and their experience with “pack-out” was something I thought would give me some good ideas for any last-minute things I forgot to put in our shipment that I could bring in our suitcases. Instead, it’s brought a new level of anxiety about all the things that could happen to our shipment (that was supposed to go air freight, but after my inept job of weighing all of it on my bathroom scale, weighed a lot more than I thought it did, and is now going as sea freight so it didn’t break the bank, and is now in a New York City harbor waiting to be loaded for an August 1st arrival in Senegal). We arrive August 2nd and I’ve been prepared all along to not have our shipment promptly, but thought it was safe to assume it would be there by Labor Day). Now after reading all these families’ experiences with pack-out, my confidence level is close to nil.

Oh well, what can I do. It’s not worth losing sleep over, there is nothing I can do about it, etc.

Anyone want to place bets on what day my shipment arrives at our home in Dakar?
