Space Bags to the Rescue


Finally got around to cornering hubby & getting him to bring out the spacebags (both the original spacebags and the cheaper imitations) so we can put  all the (clean!) pillows & sheets that my family used during their visit last month.

Yep, you heard it right. It took us 2.5 weeks to store them away. This is the part where eyebrows start going up but what can I say ? This is how we operate (we're slow!) so you can understand why a simple thing as being able to put something away & storing it properly is considered such a big accomplishment in our house.

In fairness, it took a while to get everything washed up & cleaned because we have such a tiny washer/dryer and we also have our daily wash to attend to. And our little guy gets anxious when we bring the vacuum cleaner out so one of us has to hug/comfort him while the other vacuums the air out of the bags.

Anyway, did I ever mention how much I love spacebags ? It's such a great thing to have, especially for those who do not have lots of storage space in their closets.

SPAM Mail at Work

Today, I stepped out of my "desk" (home office) for a few minutes and got back to tons of emails in my inbox.

Apparently, someone had sent out some billing information to the wrong distribution list and it was sent out to everybody by mistake. One lady started by replying to all & asking "am I supposed to be in this email ?" and pretty soon, a lot more people were replying to all & saying "I'm not supposed to be in this list" and "me too!"

There were also a lot of emails that said "PLEASE DO NOT REPLY ALL" in big bold letters which, ironically, the senders also sent out to everybody by replying-all.

I don't envy the original sender the damage control that he has to do because he did send out potentially confidential information to everybody - no, I did not read the original email so he has 1 less person to worry about. Can't imagine making a mistake on a more global level than this. :(
