I missed it.

July 8, 2020


Happy Official Birthday to my sister-in-law, Rachel! She’s going through some tough life stuff right now, but I wish her a good and happy day! <3

I never delete my emails. Every so often I will unsubscribe to someone who is sending me junk, but other than that I just let them live in my inbox. I have between five and seven email accounts. I’m not exactly sure how many. Anyway, they all funnel into my iPads email account.

there’s a reason for this. Many, many years ago, I paid for our car insurance via the Internet. Unbeknownst to me, that meant that I would only get our information via the Internet. I was not paying attention. Lloyd got in a little fender bender, and called me saying, “We don’t have car insurance.” I said, “Of course we do! They sent us the cards!” As it turns out, the insurance company will send you the cards, even if you haven’t paid for them. Grrrrr.

since then I never erase my emails. It gives me a perverse sense of satisfaction to do so. Yesterday I was waiting for the third-of-a-million mark, but I just missed it.

    Those red numbers stress me the heck out. Yikes.

    My husband with 70K+ emails would be very proud, though.

    I talked to her last night. Her birthday is today. She is 49. The baby of the family.
