|THIS IS ME.|
Snow makes me grumpy, which makes me feel like a scrooge, but there it is. Our new house is at the top of a hill. I hate driving in snow and avoid it at all costs. And, I am a huge worrier, and have a husband with a 45-minute commute on a good day. Bah-humbug.
We’ve had several inches accumulate since yesterday morning, which is rare for the PNW. (We don’t have a fleet of snow plows or anything fancy like that here.) Thankfully we all knew it was coming and school was canceled yesterday even though no snow was sticking by the time school would have started. I pulled my kids out of bed at the normal early hour and made a quick dash to the PO and grocery store (along with the rest of our town – I’ve never seen it that busy before 8 a.m.!) My husband made it to work yesterday morning and stayed in a hotel near where he works last night, and is doing the same tonight, which is kind of sad but at the same time a HUGE relief. (Worry, worry, worry.)
So, last night I was packaging up my eBay sales from the day, and wondering how in the heck I was going to actually get them mailed. I scheduled a carrier pick-up and hoped for the best because there was no way in heck I was going to take my kids and venture out on the roads. Today, a couple hours before our normal PO delivery I planted myself in front of our big window that faces the street, determined that if our PO delivery gal did make it up our hill, that I would be sure not to miss her. And I watched more and more and more snow fall. But you know what? She just came!! I saw her coming and ran out as she pulled into our driveway.
PO gal: Thanks for bringing the packages out!
Me. Thank YOU for coming!! ♥♥♥
PO gal: I actually stopped by and honked yesterday just in case you had anything.
Me: You did? Wow – thanks! Since I hadn’t scheduled a pick-up I made a PO run first thing before the snow started sticking.
Our PO gal could not be nicer. She even gave me one of their package container/crate things to make our future swaps easier.
