I am guilty of running to the mailbox everyday lol. I never know the exact days I will get mail so I run to the mailbox around 2 pm every evening hoping to get mail from him and when I don't it's a huge letdown but when I do it brightens my whole day!!!

I go to the post office at least twice a day (sometimes three) to check my box. Then I get angry at the box if nothing is in there. I have also gotten irritated at the people who put the mail in the boxes because they were taking so long to get to my box. I just got a letter and a card from my man today so I am very happy.

Don’t make someone a priority in your life when you’re only an option in theirs.

For yrs the mail hit the box by 11am. Since the recession I'm lucky to hear the postman by 5pm. On some days he/she won't even show their face. So when I hear those boots on my front porch and the mail being deposited in the box believe me I'm on my way.

When I hear the mail hit the living room floor, I am always finding myself migrating to get the mail! It's a habit!

He tells me when to expect mail. It can take anywhere from 2 to 5 days for me to actually get what he sends so I dont hurry. I just check it when I check it...

In the beginning I would sit by the window and watch....then I was way preggers and would waddle out there at 1pm and be irate if it wasn't there....some days I wait ....other days I end up checking 3 times Some days I just need to read his words....we write just about everyday

My mail runs any where between 11:00 and 12:00 and if I don't see the mail run by 12:01 I'm outside checking the mail or calling the post office to find out how heavy the mail was that day so I can judge about what time the mail will run. LOL

I'm really bad about the mail! lol...we usually get our mail between noon and 1pm. and I always go right out to get it, just in case! They've been screwing with the mail, so I never know what days I'll get mail now.

I leave work everyday except Tuesday to check the mail. My boss loves me so he lets me go, he knows my man and loves to see me happy when I get a letter. He says its worth it cause I am more productive when I get back with my letter. He hates when I don't get anything cause I tend to slow down and not get as much done...LOL Lately the mail has been crazy, I won't get anything one day and 2 or 3 letters the next. But I don't care as long as I get them eventually and I talk to him everyday.

I check the mail all the time. On days I work, when I come home I am out at the mail box before I even unlock the door. And the days that I am not working I sit at the window and wait for the mail man. His letters keep me strong. I also write to him everyday so he gets mail.
