i ordered a bottle of R&K Salix on Amazon, but didn't realize it was shipping from Germany. The wait begins!

Any advice on staying sane during a long boat ride across the Atlantic?

In May, I ordered a pen that was shipped from Austria. The outside delivery date was July 4. It is now September, and I still don't have the pen, though I did get a nice refund from the company. 

 

What gave me peace during the wait was to remember that the pen would eventually arrive. What gave me peace when I realized that it might never arrive was to realize that it was just a pen. After I realized that the pen would never arrive, despite the company's promises, what kept me sane was the realization that it was a luxury item. I finally found true peace when I was working my budget and noticed that I was about $100 ahead of where I should be. Finally, I realized that the extra was the pen that never arrived. I think this helped me make peace with the pen that never arrived. I recently saw this same pen from a domestic retailer and felt no urge to purchase it.

 

Actually, in light of the OP's post, my story might be a bit depressing. But, the real lesson behind my story is the importance of perspective. Remember that it's just a bottle of ink.
