I am having a small heart attack.
Every now and then, over the course of writing this blog, I’ve wondered why I never got any email.
Sure, lots of you posted messages and comments on the blog itself, and a few of you tracked me down through my profile, but I didn’t get mail of any other kind.
In preparation for my "big announcement" later today (or tomorrow if I can’t get back to it) I was trying to resolve the question of how to get emails from you, and I discovered something awful — a mailbox with 4, 287 emails. Unread.
I should have been tipped off to the email problem when D sent me her Handbook– three times– before I got it. But now I know what has been happening and I am *appalled*. Truly. Appalled.
It seems that I forgot to check a little box when I was forwarding my "email@example.com" mail to my main mailbox. And so all of you who have sent comments, questions, thanks, kind words, invitations to guest blog, requests to guest blog, stories, corrections to your contact information, requests for comments to be edited, invitations to "Boost My Couch Adventures" and "Resolve my healthy lifesource" — all of that stuff, went into a deep, black hole.
Black holes, as you know from your second grader’s science project, are actually not empty. They are full of matter– and AuPairMom’s black hole is apparently filled with emails from you that matter , to me.
Now, I am running off with my hair wet to an important business meeting…applying mascara as I write…so I will have to ask for your indulgence– and to Jennifer, Mishca and Stephanie who sent me emails almost a year ago, I ask for your continued patience and forgiveness. I’ll be back to you soon.
Thanks — cv (whom you can now actually reach at "mom at aupairmom dot com")
