Okay, I confess, I ended up not reading everything in my Reader before I cleaned it out. Sorry. But I do feel like I have a fresh start, and can better keep up with everyone now. Phew!

430: the average number of unread emails I have pretty much all of the time. I clean it out a little, then they pour in, clean it out a little, and end up hovering back around 430 unread emails in my inbox.

Meanwhile, at work, every Tuesday morning, I get an email that my inbox is full. I don't keep nearly as many emails in my work inbox as I do at my home email, but working in legal, I get lots of attachments. And like clockwork, I get that ominous message that the first thing I need to do Tuesday am is clean out my inbox. But I can only do that after I fill out my legal time allocation.

Is this the most boring post I've ever written? Don't answer that. Please.

Awards: I've been given awards, but I saved some on my work computer and some on my home computer. And my memory has failed me as to who gave me what.

Except for this one, which I named appropriately, from Tara.

One of these days, I'll get serious about updating my layout and putting all these pretty awards up.

I'm sure there are rules to follow with this award, but aren't rules made to be broken? I pass this one:

To Jen of A2eatwrite - because I love her heart, that's as beautiful as any butterfly.

To Florinda of The 3 R's - my first bloggy friend to turn into a real-life friend - and letting me latch onto her at the LA Moms Blog launch party, cuz she's so warm and sweet that way. I look forward to seeing you more (and your sis) in 2009!

To Nat at From Here to There - because I get to meet her in about 36 hours!

Kori, I think you got this one from Tara, too, otherwise you'd be on this list. But if you didn't, then it goes to you, too - for being my dearest friend. I wish I could do more for you, but I'm here for whatever I can do. I love you.

Once I figure out where the heck I put the others, and I can properly credit the givers, then I'll pass them along.

I'm enormously thankful for everyone who takes the time to read my little corner of the 'net. I hope to give a proper thanksgiving post tomorrow, but if I don't get to it, I hope you all have a very happy day!

Awe, April, that was so sweet!

I'm the same way with both reader and e-mail, btw...

I dont need an award ..snifff

Tara R. said...

You're very welcome. I finally had to turn off my e-mail comment notices, the pressure was incredible. MAAR is becoming my mantra during the holidays, I'm not gonna lie.

Florinda said...

Thank you so much for the award, April! Look for it in my sidebar soon :-).

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Kori said...

To be quite frank, I don't know if I got this or not. And I have four, I think, sitting around and I can't remember where I got them or who gave them to me; reasing this makes me feel better about that. So thank you.

Congrats on the award. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been AWFUL about reading blogs, lately. I think it's the NaBloPoMoSuck thing. There is just such an overwhelming number of posts every day there's no way to stay remotely on top of it!
