The new mailbox is up and functional – or at least it’s up. The mailman hasn’t driven by yet to put anything inside, so I hope it’ll hold up to the force of carrying communication from Point A to our home abode, Point B.
What do we get in the mail besides bills and circulars? I tend to get too many books, at least one per week, to read and review here (wow, haven’t posted a review since May – I need to get on the stick). So that’s cool, getting an unexpected package with goodies inside. We get magazines – Relevant for me; Disney, Nick and a couple of gaming mags for the kids; and Southern Living for Vicki. Nothing beats a shipment of k-cups from CoffeeWiz.com, though. New coffee in the house makes it feel like Christmas every six weeks or so. Those aren’t coming the mailbox – usually we just thank our faithful UPS driver and rush inside to unpack the caffeinated goodness.
So here’s to the USPS, UPS and Fedex – the folks who deliver stuff to our house for the good of mankind. At least until my mailbox gets hit again.
