I Hate my Spam Folder....

So, as some of you know, I'm working on this idea of sending cards to people who have cancer. I've sent a few cards already to those who've asked. It's been a lot of fun and I've decided that this should probably have an entire blog to itself.

I contacted a very cute blog designer and she is working on a new design for me.

I contacted her, she contacted me, I wrote her back.....

and then nothing.

On her design blog, she has a queue of upcoming projects, and I'm at the end. So I just thought, "She probably does one thing at a time, giving her full attention to the blog at hand." I mean, I think I'd probably do it that way. I'm very much a one thing at a time person. I do that when working with my students. I get all of the things I need to do for them completed before moving on. I wasn't upset that I had not heard anything, I just figured she's busy rocking out her creativity on some super awesome blogs.

While riding the bus today into work, however, something made me think, "You need to check your spam folder."

Sure enough...there they are. Two messages from my blog designer giving me the next step instructions. There was even a very nice follow up message to wonder where I was.

Oh. I was here.

But thanks to Yahoo, I missed her messages.

So, thank you, Yahoo. Your spam filter is so wonderful that not only did her messages end up there, but messages to me about winning the lotto in the UK as well as sending some Prince of a 3rd world country my bank information came into my inbox with no problem.

OMG I have the same spam problems. I almost missed out on a great contest I won b/c spam felt i didn't need to know I won!

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful comment you just posted! I truly appreciate it. I was beyond furious and now im in horrible pain and took the first pain fill ive had in 6 months! I know i shouldn't let it get to me but he wrote a couple other emails too. I felt attacked when all i wanted to do was share my story...ugh

Anyway, sometimes its hard to tell my story and when i get crap like that it makes it harder. Thank you SPAM for thinking that is an email I should certainly read!! LOL...your comment made me feel much better and ill be sure to keep on blogging about MY experience with Cervical Cancer...ps...according to Darryl's theory I must be sluttin it up so I have to go now and get busy (j/k)
