Mr Breast Pumps big american adventure.

15 weeks 1 day

Mr. Pump is traveling UPS, which means I can track it’s movements, which I happily do several times a day, because I am a freak like that.

The wee pump started his adventure in Sunny Anaheim California on December 2nd .From there he went to glitzy LA and then directly from LA to scenic Windsor Ontario where the pump went into a “brokerage” to pass through customs. He landed at the brokerage on Friday and spent a weekend on a shelf in luxiourious Windsor.

Today,after his weekend getaway in Windsor, he turned around and went back to the states.

Which is where I started to panic, why is my wee little pump making a run for the border? He is oh so close? Why turn back now?

Today he went from Windsor, Ontario to a place called Hodgkins outside of Chicago (please correct me if I am wrong). After much googling I discover that this is UPS’s giant hub where packages go to get re-routed… very odd to leave Canada to come to Canada.

Regardless, wee pump went from Hodgkins Illinois to Maumee OH, which according to Google is 488 Kilometres away from my house, and isn’t Ohio like right next door to Michigan , which is right next door to Windsor, that wee Ontario town where he started the day?

The poor pump must be exhausted from his very long trip, but the good news is that apparently he will arrive safe and sound into my arms tomorrow! A full day earlier then anticipated despite his little tour of the states.

Tomorrow also marks the very first OB appointment!! Yea! Maybe if M is feeling up to it, she may even blog? But the twins (oh and her own kids!) do tend to wear her out – not sure how she finds the time to fit it all is.

    I am crazy like that too 🙂 I tend to track my packages obsessively. Glad to know the pump is almost here!

    It’s so nice to read about your excitement. It’s been a long time coming and I am so happy for you.

    I am expecting a package from the states too and it feels like it’s taking 4ever!

    You’re going to love it when he finally arrives and starts massaging your breasts regularly!

    Heh. Found this entry in my google news alerts for Windsor.

    Typically, the paperwork arrives first and is cleared by Canadian Customs, then the paperwork is sent to where the item actually is (Chicago in this case). then the paperwork and the item will ship together. Likely to Mississauga.

    I hope you know about the bloated “brokerage charge” you’ll likely get slapped with for using UPS….

    Ha! Your pump has been to more states in the USA than I have lol. Quite the traveler you have!

    That is crazy that it does that much travelling! No wonder it costs us a fortune, it goes all over the place and back again before it gets to it’s destination. I hope it comes on time..will be fun to unpack and check it all out.
