I can’t for the life of me ever seem to get my e-mail in box to live at less than 50. What ever did I do when youth ministry didn’t have e-mail. Now I don’t delete or file an e-mail that still has something I need to do with it. So they sit there, screaming, “You better do something about me!”

If it gets over a 100 deep, I stay up as long as it takes to beat it down to the 60’s or 70’s. I hate the big pile in my in box. I know some people- my dad shall remain nameless- who like keeping like 5000 e-mails in their in box. I would stab myself in the eye with the edge of my laptop out of sheer frustration.

Maybe that’s why my weekend prep gets pushed back so far sometimes. I should just shut e-mail off. Whoever decided this was going to save me time, yeah… they were lying.


  1. Dude use the filing system. It does help once you have a system that works for you.

  2. Don’t feel bad. I’m rockin’ a smooth 2-fity!


  3. Don’t feel bad. I’m crusing at about 2-fity!
