My Tuesday Adventure ;)

Okay so finally after a few snow storms roll through the area we get snow about 3-4inches on the ground...wahoo!! Jocelyn and Ethan decided that before we venture out to take Jo to preschool a little time playing in the fresh snow was needed...not sure if they were dancing or doing karate but it was cute anyways.

This is where the adventure for my day began, so we live on this wonderful hill now which is not that big of a deal for us as we are located right after the turn in the road so snow doesn't pose too much of an issue...However, after picking Jo up from preschool and heading home we discovered that it apparently was a big deal for this work truck with a trailer. As we were driving up to the house we saw him drive past leaving from what I thought was my driveway. Come to find out after the local police found him and he came to apologize.. he was coming down the hill and couldn't stop so he plowed right into our mail box and lamp post, dragging our mailbox almost all the way down to our old house. Evidently he had to drop off some building materials to a house down the street and was returning to give me his insurance info when the police found him.. Needless to say I will not be getting you holiday cards on time as I will have to go to the post office to get my mail and well we know how motivated I am to do that. Luckily the nice man moved the lamp post and mail box out of my driveway so I can park in my garage :)

This is how it should look:

This is what I came home to:

Thankfully no one was hurt.. but man what a pain to have to deal with now... Of course it goes to reason that since Dave is out of town this would happen to me.

What I don't understand is why the mail person can't just take your mail to your door. If there's a package he/she (it's usually a she, right?) has to get out and take it to the door anyways, why not the mail? Seriously, a trip all the way to the post office is with 2 toddlers & pregnancy (not to mention Holiday!) exhaustion is a lot more work than that!
