the best (or worst) of procrastination........

I am guessing I have run out of my normal procrastination tools because this morning I actually cleaned up all my blog links. you know....that HUGE list of favorites that has everyone whose blog I have even looked at once EVER in it!! well, this morning I clicked on them all and got rid of the ones that were gone or hadn't been posted to in over a year! there were a lot.

BUT......there was one that I didn't click on and didn't delete. a friend of mine who passed away a couple months ago. I left her blog link right where it was. I just couldn't delete it. I like that almost daily reminder of her. silly I know. crazy probably.

in the same way, I still have my brother's cell phone number in my cell address book. heck, by this time it has probably gone through 2 or 3 people......but I still have it. and in the same way I got really mad at my dh who accidentally deleted the very last e-mail my brother ever sent me. he was just cleaning up our mail program and *poof* that last link was gone. and I cried. it wasn't an important e-mail.....it was just the last one.

I know exactly what you mean. I still have about a half dozen mundane e-mails from Hank that are five years old. I like coming across them every once in a while.

I deleted Uncle T's phone number from my cell because it hurt too much to see the name when I was scrolling through.:( But I understand wanting to save the number.

Susan - you made my heart ache today. Such a loving and warm gesture to cry about an email. I cannot imagine your loss. {{Hugs}}

Hugs to you, Susan. I was similarly disappointed when my dear dear friend Josh passed away and my e-mail account went unused for so long it was deleted, and I lost all the e-mails from him. I found a few later in a box, apparently I had printed them out. It was such a relief! I don't know why... I don't read them, I just wanted to know they were there.

Such a nice sentiment, Susan. {{hugs}}
