I'm ready to leave for the hospital. I already miss my dogs! It's hard to say goodbye to them, they don't understand that I'll be back.
Thanks to everybody for the support.
I'll talk to you soon or as my son says....I'll see you on the flip side!
Have a great week everybody.
NorwIndian, keeping you in my thoughts. :grouphug
I've got a pretty minor beef, but a beef none the less. I am at the tail end of our mail route, which means mail can be delivered as late as 5 pm-6pm....or whenever......and the extreme top of our garbage/recycling collection route. If you don't get the garbage out the night before, you'd better be up by 5 am or wait until the next week. Those situations just rankle me!
Deliveries are late in the day, too. Today, I'm having to wait for a package, but I also need to go to the grocery store; as much as I hate to go to the store, I really don't need anything to deter me because I need little excuse to put that chore off. This is not a great day. Growl-Grumble!
I didn't find out that my delivery was today until this morning.
I hate missing garbage day! I recently switched our garbage company and this one specifically told me that our cans needed to be out by 7 am. I am trying hard to remember to just put them out the night before! Our mail always gets delivered by 1 pm, but we do seem to be near the end of the UPS route so those packages get dropped off closer to 5 pm.
I have to get my garbage out before I leave for work on garbage day because they usually come right around lunchtime. I don't stress if I'm late getting my garbage out, though. I just consider it early for the following week. Since I live in a condo, each unit has a garbage barrel so if mine gets filled during the week, I can easily add a bag to a less full barrel.
It seems like every time I move I end up with a later mail delivery. When I was in high school, we used to get our mail around 2:30 pm. I wonder if they started doing rounds later than they used to so everyone's mail comes in the evening.
Ours garbage must be out by 6 am. They also occasionally reverse the curbside refuse and recycling collection route.
Also ... it is three separate trucks ... one for garbage, one for recycling and one for "yard waste".
So as for the refuse and recycling, we just prefer to take it out the night before.
In the summer after 6 pm and in the winter after 4 pm is legal.
