I never though it would come to this, but how do you guys sort your mail? Do you have a need for incoming/outgoing/gone categorizing? I really don’t have that many pals and I feel like I keep pretty good track of them, but apparently I don’t! I received a message earlier on Interpals informing me that my second ” first letter” had just arrived. Now, unless this is a confusion on her end, I have NO idea how this came about.
I clearly remember and decorating the one first letter for her, sending it, and then sending her a message that it was in the mail. All this happened around March 2nd. But now, she just received another with is post dated March 20th. I have no idea what it could be! Did I accidentally send her someone elses letter?( I doubt it, because she has a very unique address, I think I would have realized!). The only thing I can think of would be that I may have written a first draft or decorated a first envelope, not been entirely satisfied and set it aside meaning to get rid of it, but instead ended up sending it.
Whatever I did, talk about a bad first impression! Poor girl must have been so confused ( and disappointed when she realized it was not a quick reply but in fact a stupid resend of some sort). Unfortunately this is around the same time I could not remember for sure if I had replied to another pal. I think I need to stay away from my letter when things at work are hectic! It’s too confusing( apparently!)
I know a lot of people out there have far more penpals, swaps and correspondence going on than I do, how do you guys keep track properly?
