Where's my SASE? Where's my contract?
This is about as savvy as I feel sometimes when it comes to computers. Thanks to my hubby I was able to repost this. I cannot take any credit, the wise one, the techno geek knows all, and all I have to do is shout, "Honey!" and he comes with his wizard magic.
I have been cursing the mailbox lately. I had an article published in an eight page newsletter, and when it arrived, it was in a plastic bag from the postal service with an apology for the shredded condition it was in. Looked worse than a kid with safety scissors trying to make a paper snowflake.
I sent off a timely essay that an editor asked me to edit and resend. I was so hopeful when I saw the return envelope in my mailbox. I couldn't believe that the yellow sticker pasted across the front was also from the US Postal Service stating my mail was undeliverable to the address. I know how Elvis felt, Return to Sender; Address Unknown! UGH!
I check my email several times a day, and I read my blog before and after work and during lunch. You know what they say about a 'watched pot'. Well I am about to boil over, so I think I will not check my email during my work day and see what happens. My bet, when I get home and go on line a mailer daemon will pop up on my computer. I will snap, completely shut down and give it the boot.
WELCOME TO MY NEW FOLLOWERS, please stop by often. I love hearing from you.
