saturday my tracking info said "arrival at unit" i know that usps doesnt ship on sunday so todays monday and im excited to get my package and i check the tracking info and instead of delivered it says "sorting complete" what does this mean?

Karl is correct and here is the long version.
That means that the packages have arrived on the trucks and have been sorted out into carts for the delivery routes. If the package has a barcode it is scanned as arrived at this time. When the clerk is done they put the scanner in the dock to upload the info; the system then shows the status online that it is complete.
The carrier for the route you live/work on will pick-up the packages after getting the rest of the mail ready for delivery and head out to the truck for delivery. Delivery of your package generally happens as the carrier gets to your address in the delivery sequence and scans the package as delivered. The "delivered" status will not show up until the carrier gets back to the office at the end of the day and places the scanner in the dock to upload the information.

It has been sorted to the correct delivery route but hasn't left the Post Office for delivery yet.
