    Well I'm glad I checked this thread because I'm in the same boat. Just ordered on Sunday a new iPad from Apple and five minutes later ordered an iPad Cache along with some key straps and an ultrasuede cloth from TB. I was a little surprised when UPS sent the shipping notice and tracking shows it originating from China. From there it went to Alaska and now it's in Louisville, Kentucky. No word from TB on shipping yet.

    So last week I ordered the new Cardinal/Hemp/Steel Imago. Since it's going to a house a new work computer, which I'm getting next week, there was no rush so I ordered UPS ground. I usually don't pay much attention to the tracking for ground because once it departs from Seattle nothing happens for several days.

    The bag was supposed to arrive on August 18, but I was a little confused and thought that was Friday instead of Thursday. Thursday night I was stuck at BWI because my flight was delayed because of weather. So, I thought I'd check the UPS tracking to see if the shipment was on time for Friday, and it showed that it had already been delivered! Yet another reason to get home!

    And sure enough, when I got home at 1 a.m., the box was outside the door. And as other folks have noted, it was a little worse for the wear (one corner was bashed in, but the Imago, pouches, and key straps were all OK).

    Nice welcome home present!

    But another precious shipment left on the doorstep :-0

    If we're not home to accept a delivery I expect that the courier will take the parcel away and leave a card. I always have to sign for courier deliveries .. how can they just leave them??

    AusPost is a different matter - unless it's a 'registered' parcel they just dump it - one reason I have a post office box.

    We've had an auspost parcel guy do a ring and run and I actually saw him going across the road heading away - he didn't wait the 30 sec it took me to walk the length of the house. He didn't actually _have_ the parcel (box of wine) with him - so clearly never intended to do more than leave a card - although why he rang the bell I have no idea. The guys at the post office said the guy had a rep for doing this.
    List under construction ....

    I always track my order compulsively.
    The other thing that happens with *every* order - I realize two days later that there is one or two accessories that I forgot to order.

    Actually the shipment was inside the building, but outside my apartment door. One of my neighbors must have signed for it.

    I'm totally in the same boat. I just ordered my starting-my-Montessori-teaching-career-gift-to-self: an FJN. It made it from Seattle to Richmond, BC in a grand total of about 4 hours. Now it's stuck in Customs, GAH!! So close I can smell it.

    Well last night I ordered my Navy/Cork/Wasabi Imago, and some pouches and another stuff sack. Tonight when I checked email I have two UPS tracking messages. One of them was sent Tuesday? Confusion here, unless it's the Absolute strap hardware Katy was sending to the SO. And I've noticed lately that even when I'm not expecting a package, seeing UPS trucks makes me happy. So we're watching for a package on Tuesday and my Imago on Thursday.

    I think you'll love the Imago, jaon. I have the identical bag and I love it.

    My TBA syndrome is further out than UPS can track, as by now the order is likely waiting on LCB in turquoise - which aren't due out until mid October. Patient. I can be patient. Give no other options I can be patient!

    I feel your pain and am in the same boat. I keep picking up my turquoise swatch just to look at it.

    I'm sure I will love it. UPS added a new wrinkle to TBA Syndrome by ringing the bell today. Once I saw the truck I had the wild thought that the mystery package had arrived early and that maybe mine would be early too. Turned out to be something else entirely that had for some reason been shipped overnight or close to it.

    I'm also trying very hard to be patient as I await my LCB in Azalea, so I'm with you, Sera.

    So excited. My Steel/Wasabi Ristretto for Macbook Air 11" has shipped! Along with 15 accessories (yes, I went a little overboard, ok a LOT overboard). Steel/Wasabi had been backordered from the time of my order on August 2. So it's been a long wait. The anticipation is almost over! I got a phone call on Friday from Seattle (Eliam in customer service, I think) - turns out one of the accessories was backordered in the color I wanted (plum clear organizer cube), so I needed to choose an alternate color. I went for black. I really wanted Plum! Oh well. Ups and downs of ordering so much at once. Anyway, UPS tracking has the package in Louisville, estimated to deliver on time to me in Maine on Tuesday.

    Conditioning through association. You're not the only one.

    Wow that's a long wait! I think we all now how easy it is to go overboard when shopping for TB items!
