Monday afternoon I got out a bread knife, put a cutting board on the counter, and cut myself a piece of bread.  Then I opened the butter dish, took a butter knife and buttered my bread.  After that, a danced a small dance of happiness.

Yes, the mythical UAB finally arrived after finally taking matters into our own hands and tracking down the boxes ourself (I have no idea when anyone would have gotten around to contacting us).  I never knew how happy making dinner without any frozen food would make me.  I'm sure, however, that through the years I'll begin to appreciate it more.

Dude! So what in the world happened? How did you finally track it down?

Welcome to State Dept. We've had that happen to us before... Sometimes you do just have to take things into your own hands! Oh and one more piece of advice, save ALL receipts and airline tickets for reimbursement even if they pay for it. At our first post, they wouldn't reimburse us for travel stuff because we didn't have the airline ticket receipts! (We didn't pay for them so why would we have kept them? Yeah, keep that stuff.)
