453...

unread e-mails. This is what I found when I booted up my computer after being away for several days. While on my trip to Utah and Idaho last week, my internet access was limited to what I could accomplish on my cell phone. I thought I was being so clever to check my e-mails every day to make sure there wasn't anything critical that I needed to take care of. I just never realized exactly how many I was skipping over.

So yesterday I opened up my inbox and was stunned at the number of unread e-mails in my inbox. I mean, I know I get a lot of e-mails, but normally I check it a couple of times a day and clean everything out as the day goes on.

I started reading e-mails at 10AM yesterday...and finished cleaning out the new ones around 5PM. Yes, I did have a few I needed to respond to, and I admit I did delete many without reading them. I think the next time I travel, I'll figure out where the delete button is on my cell phone BEFORE I leave town!

Holy cow! Guess it's a good thing I haven't sent that "Nice meeting you" follow up email yet!

Those are the good kind of e-mails! And it was great meeting YOU! The e-mails that were frustrating to deal with were the ones that were telling me that my bills are available online. I mean, it's bad enough that most of my regular mail consists of bills. Having that concept invade my e-mail account is downright annoying.
