Up to a blazing +1 here! Just dug the trailer out of the snow bank to make a dump run tomorrow (Christmas tree) and pick up a sheet or two of sheetrock while in town. Makes you wonder how nice it must be to have 45-50 this time of year . Bet you don't have to dig through packed snow butt deep to a tall Moose every time you need to go the Lowes. LOL, Still wouldn't trade it for the Summers though.

Oh lordy, that is going to make his head pop like a kernel of corn when he sees it. I would come unwrapped! Looks like there is plenty of room to the side of the plow. Personally I have called them back and made the driver move the stupidly deposited load by hand before just like I would have had to do.

I emailed the pic to him. Phone rang. "What the hell?" I laughed and that didn't help matters. Work is very stressful right now. I shouldn't be teasing him but I couldn't help myself. He suggested I'd have a good time moving it out of the way tomorrow morning so that he can finish plowing. I'm not laughing anymore! Sorry Babe, gotta take the kid 50 miles to ortho in the morning then 70 miles to the high school to drop her off and 20 miles back home. Pretty sure I don't have time (or interest) in moving it all. Maybe we can get all of it in the attic Saturday.

What kind of column do you write, and for what publication? Uh, the delivery guys, uh, "we just deliver - that's all, you can put it where you want it" Haha, I would be saying the same thing if I came home to something like that.

hmmm...that's a good idea...maybe I will! I don't want to get the guy in trouble but a gentle reminder of think before you unload wouldn't be a bad thing.

I co-write You Are What You Eat for the Quoddy Tides newspaper in Eastport. This is just the second column. We write it once a month. I contributed to an article about cold weather growing that will be published in the July 08 issue of Organic Gardening. No byline on that one. The editor has done the fact checking and given me the issue so I think it'll publish. I wrote a lot for Farm & Garden and do a little here and there under a pen name. I have one children's book finished and another almost done. I'm too chicken to send them to a publisher. I work as a copywriter in the winter, mostly brochures.

We always need more good children's books. Send them in please, quality is hard to find out there, and I have a feeling your would be the highest quality! We read to our kids every night sense they were born. The oldest two now can read their own books in the evenings, but the younger two still need Dad or Mom to do the reading for them. I bet we have 40 or 50 feet of shelf space that is nothing but children's books.

Realistically, I would probably be calling the company asking that they send the guy back out to move it to a more appropriate place. That was pretty thoughtless on his part and has caused you a stressful situation. It would be nice if the mistake was corrected. I'd be friendly, of course, and just ask if it would be possible for them to help you out since your husband isn't home.

Barring that, you probably have wonderful neighbors who may be willing to help.

My wife and I read the Quoddy online, and are going to subscribe to it.. I remember walking by the office when we were in Eastport.
