My mail usually comes after 3, but as soon as I see the mail whale I run outside. Sometimes if I don't pay attention to see if he has come yet then I'll end up checking my box like 3 times a day...lol I'm obsessed!!

If I'm expecting a letter, I drive home at lunch just to check the mail. It makes my day when there is something from my man!

I do, when I know that he was able to send a letter. It's like Christmas for me.

For me I get mail twice a week. On Wednesdays and Fridays at the latest. Some weeks I get a lot of mail but other times nothing. I get bit down when I don't get any mail. Some days I feel like I am going to go postal....lol! Where I live in in a rural/country area so I got to walk up the road to check the mail. I can't stalk the mail carrier. She is my husbands aunt....lol! I usually the one who check the mail. My husband refused to check it for me.

The post office has a new service called Informed Delivery, you get an email every morning showing what letters will be in your mailbox that day. It's free and I love it.
