Confession

I have 1,059 mails in my inbox.
That's just wrong.
I know there are important mails that are buried and still not answered.
I'm going to have to do this better.

I will start by making some popcorn and contemplating my ways.

oh! I hate it when that happens. I was with you in Arusha when I managed to take my emails from 1k down to about 70. go team.

1,059??? Oh. My. Word. Let's see, I would highlight them all, then hit delete. Then I would freak out a little that something important went unanswered. Then I would tell myself that anyone that needed an answer will email again, and by then I'll have a handle on the out-of-control-email-situation. Then I would take my popcorn (and a Coke) and sit on the porch with a good book.
Okay, I would not do all that. Well, maybe not. I hope your popcorn is salty and buttery, it'll make the contemplating easier.
Hugs, Shelley

well I just giggled aloud at your "my issues" tag on this post.

my professor is late for class...maybe he won't show up and I can go eat poppy corn & take a nap!

LOL! Popcorn helps me meet many a deadline and solve many a crisis. It has vast therapeutic properties.
In fact, now that you brought it up, I think I'm going to make some popcorn right now!!!

golly...

I will, also, make some popcorn...what is it with that???
It must satisfy a gazillion primal, evolutionary cravings...

I like mine new age, with nutritional yeast flakes...
think I'm maybe meeting some dietary allowances that way...can I pack yeast flakes in my luggage to Africa? Have you tried this delicacy, Borden family?

In the mean time, try not to get butter and salt on your keyboard...

Well, Mumsie, many of them are not actually answered yet! Yikes. Not that many. Others have to be sorted into files according to what they have to do with... reports I need to read or save for work related stuff. Others are just sitting there for no reason and need to be axed! I keep whittling away at it :-)

Oh, my dear! While I know this is over a year old, and I'm just reading it now, I sure hope that you have found a way to juggle all that you have on your platter, without going nuts. I am awestruck that I have received even one email reply from you, given your inbox count! I feel very blessed! I'm glad you have popcorn. :-)
