Room With A View

Snow days in Dallas -- well, sort of.  Ice and temperatures well below freezing have paralyzed most of the metro this week.  I haven't left the house in two days -- have barely gotten off the sofa.  I've loved it!

I made a giant pot of vegetable soup yesterday, and we have just hunkered down.  My sweet Hudson has kept the fire blazing while we both worked from home.  This has been my view today.

I will continue my de-clutter confessions, humble myself and tell you that today I disposed of 5,860 e-mails.  I didn't do it lightly or hastily -- it took me hours and hours.  (I have a formidable crick in my neck and severe tension in my shoulders.  But, it's done.)  Many of the messages need to be moved to folders so that they are preserved, but most were just TRASH and that's where they went.

So, I resolve that I will (try) to dispose of my e-mails daily so this doesn't happen again. There are days and days when I check mail from my iphone (while driving, of course) and never make it to my desk top, so this will take some discipline. I'll need some help!

Let all things be done decently and in order.


  1. ohmyGOSH, KK! i am SOOOO impressed with your ability to go through that many emails. i'm over 3K and it makes me crazy, but i just can't seem to stay focused to go through them all. PROPS to you!

  2. That's amazing! I also check my email from my phone and I've noticed since I started that my inbox has become horribly cluttered. I'm so impressed by how much you accomplished!
