Slacking and weeding

Yes. I admit it. I've been slacking. I haven't visited other blogs, and I haven't blogged everyday.
I did, however, take the literary machete to my FG. All is well. I'm gonna live. And did I already tell everyone that I love my CP? *laughing*
Yesterday, I blew everything off. The dishes. The cleaning. By God, everything. And I went to a friend's house and relaxed. I'm always amazed it takes me leaving my own home to be able to accomplish this feat. I CANNOT relax at home. There's simply too much STUFF to do that. Everywhere my eyes can see, a mess to clean. ACK! Not conducive to my peace of mind.

And since I didn't even log on yesterday, I have several hundred emails. Here is the process: stroke out from seeing my mailbox number. Gasp for air. Somehow maintain consciousness while clicking on the sinister mailbox. Eyes widen as I scroll.
I probably do about four passes. First pass is obvious "don't read"s. Next pass is semi-important loop. Third pass is important loop. Last pass is usually emails from friends and associates.
I decided to blog first today and then tackle the damn mailbox. Pray for me.

Good luck tackling that in-box! Isn't it amazing (and scary) how fast those emails pile up?! Glad you snuck in a day of relaxation, Crystal! Don't stress trying to catch up. :)

I spent all day yesterday upgrading Wordpress. What a pain! So I'm playing catch-up today.

I'm glad you got to relax yesterday! Isn't it amazing how quickly those emails can pile up?

Some days it's just tough to get it all done. You can only do so much. But for me email is the worst to fall behind on. It snowballs so fast.

I was gone most of Friday. I left at 8:45 a.m. with only 2 emails in inbox. When I got home at 9:30, I had 103. I have come to the conclusion I need to overcome my Yahoo group addiction. About 95% of them were deleted without opening.

Beth C.: Stress is my middle name. Well, that and Ann. heh
Tori: Oh good grief! That cannot have been a picnic. Glad you're through.
Steph: YES! Somehow I think they're procreating in my mailbox. Dirty, dirty emails.
Teresa: Isn't that the truth?
Rene: I love it when I don't have to open anything, and the delete key is my best friend.
