2nd Class Mailbox
I have only five minutes to do this post. I’m in a rush. Babies are bound to be crying in four point eight minutes. Medication needs to be distributed and noses will need squigied. Is that a word?

But it is the best description. The little screw looks like your average screw…it has a head that will fit a flathead screwdriver. The binding post is the girl…it has a hole. The screw goes into the hole and screws in. Again. sorry.

Now our mailbox is completely functional once again. Thank goodness for the easy fixes…they keep me sane. I still need to fix the sign now…it got all beat up and scratched with the swinging door. But I’m running out of tim….
