    Ohhh justustwo I'm so sorry to hear your story. Do you have any close neighbors you could ask if they've seen anything or maybe took your package by mistake? We've had packages dropped off half a mile down the road. I'll have fingers and toes crossed for you!

        OMG, I am SO sorry. I really really hope they turn up soon. I can only imagine what you're going through. I agree that you should check with the neighbors and the super to see if someone else picked it up.

                I'm sorry to hear this, that's horrible if someone took them and on your birthday even. Let's all hope they were just put at the wrong door. That happens to me all the time, the UPS driver always leaves my stuff at the neighbors. Check with the neighbors and the aparment manager, someone may know where they are. It's quite possible they went to the wrong door and since the name was incorrect that person didn't know who it was for.

                  I am so upset to hear this!!! I hope you can pull it together and still have a fun birthday, but I know you must be sick about it! Especially knowing you can't tell your man!!! I hope for the best possible scenario and that the package is returned to you un-open! If it's any consolation- this xmas my great grandmothers wedding album was lost in the mail (by UPS) and it was randomly delivered to a greek restaurant....we got it back 5 months later, unopened!!! I'm hoping you will get yours too! Sooner than 5 months from now, of course!

                  Good Luck!!!!!!!

                    OMG! I don't know what to say, I'm so sorry! Only thing I can think of is can your photographer just send you new copies?

                    I hope it all gets worked out, Happy birthday for what it is worth.

                      Thank you all sooo much for all of your supportive words, thoughts & birthday wishes. I truly appreciate it.
                      I'm sure I don't have to tell you how great it is to have BDW at times like this where we can share good times & bad times.

                      I called UPS because I wanted them to clarify their policy of leaving packages at a person's door. The rep that I spoke to said that this is done at the drivers discretion. If he feels that your package will be "safe" left at your door, then he will leave it. If there is inclimate weather or if their are animals/pets around that will disturb the package, then he won't leave it & will leave the slip instead. She said that the ONLY time that drivers WON'T leave a package is if the sender requests a signature. If a signature is not required, again, its all up to the driver. So for those of you using UPS or any other carrier & sending important packages, make sure that you always request a signature to prevent something like this from happening.

                      I know that DH didn't intercept the package because we both got home at the same time & I came upstairs first.
                      In terms of my neighbors, DH said last night that he's going to go ask our next door neighbors himself. I feel like if they had the package, they wouldn't have held it since Monday. Thats the only reason that I feel that no one took it to "hold" for us.

                      Lastly, the photog has been great. She ofcourse feels horrible about this & told me that she would definitely re-make the album & resend it and the disc. I just feel bad that she may be doing this at her expense. While she opened the investigation with UPS she mentioned that usually they insure packages up to about $100 but she's not too sure that they will reimburse her in this case because according to them, the package was technically "delivered" & it wouldn't necessarily be their "fault" if someone stole it from my door. We'll see what happens with that. I mentioned to the rep at UPS that these were wedding photos & she was extremely sympathetic so I hope she finds that as an acceptable reason to reimburse my photog.

                      So thats the update that I have so far. I think I held up okay during the day but as soon as I got home, got off of the elevator & approached my door, my heart sank again when I didn't see the package at the door. I keep hoping that everytime I come & go, that it will "magically" appear at the door, unopened! Today I plan on staying home & hoping that UPS comes by. If so, I plan on asking the driver if he actually left the package at my door & not someone else's.

                      I also plan on asking the porter if he possibly has any unclaimed packages.

                      Again, thanks for all of your thoughts & support.
