...I get slammed with requests?

Normally I get one request a week, or one every other week. I've been gone from Friday to Wednesday and I had:

4 PBS requests
1 DVD request
2 Amazon book requests

Guess I am going to be going to the PO tomorrow to mail a bunch of stuff lol

Well, you know how the saying goes....a watched pot never boils.  So when your hear checking all the time, nothing.  But as soon as you turn your back, boils right over.

I put my account on vacation hold even if I'm only going to be gone 48 hours.  I need time to breathe when I get back. smiley
