Shipping packages is never a good time.  I normally use FedEx or UPS, however, I have 1 relative that lives in such a small town that no one has mail delivery to their homes...and everyone has to have a box at the Post Office (no, it's not Mayberry, but close!)  So, every Christmas I have to brave the lines at the Post Office to ship the little package to her.  I tried sending a gift card last year, but she won't redeem it's got to be a real a box...shipped to the post office!  Wish me luck!
