junk, junk, and more junk
Monday's are usually the day that I try and get caught up from our always hectic weekends. I always say I am going to put the house back in order on Sunday night after the kids go to bed, but I never do. The couch is calling my name, Brothers and Sisters is on (I am seriously addicted to this show), and a bowl of popcorn sounds much more appealing that spending the next hour sweeping and throwing away clutter. So, Monday morning from 8-11 I run around the house putting everything back in order (or I TRY to because usually three year old is running around after me moving and touching everything I am straightening).

Anyways, this morning I had more than the usual to do because I had a huge stack of mail on my desk. I had not looked at mail in at least 10 days. Now for those of you who are mail obsessed (you know who you are) I am sure this would drive you crazy. I hate mail. Sometimes my mail sits outside in the box for days before I go and get it. I know, I know, this is very bad. Today I am paying the price for this. It took me an hour to go through all the mail, open , read, and throw 95% of it away.

This is my rant for the day. Why oh Why people do we have to get all this junk mail???? I do not want to refinance my house every other week, I do not want to join a gym (though I seriously need to),I do not want your credit card no matter how good you say the interest rate is, I do not care about your free magazine offers. If I want it I will let you know. Please, Please, I am begging you, save some trees and stop sending me all this garbage!

Thank You very much.

I share your Sunday night feeling. I am always so behind and I hate for things to be all disrupted on Monday morning.

As for mail, most days I throw all of it away (or recycle it). I guess I try to find comfort in the fact that they didn't call me.

Yep, I avoid all; mail. I have it set up as a reoccuring task to try to remind myself to sort through it at least once a week.

They say that large families hurt the environment when we don't come anywhere near advertisers.

Mail - I go through it fast each day just so I don't have it. Not because I love mail, but because I hate it. Believe me, 95% of mine goes in the trash too.
