I have a friend; someone I use to be very close to. Here's an an email I got 4 months ago:
- "I'm so sorry I haven't emailed you back. I'm so busy with the kids, etc. that I'm just now getting on the computer, and I'm just too busy to email!" *Note: this was in response to mine sent a year and a half prior.
- "Don't worry about getting to call me, I'm so hard to reach anyway. I'm either running around in the car picking up kids, grocery shopping, or dragging a toddler around screaming - it's chaos. The 3rd child has literally eaten up any spare moment I have, and I can barely find time to get on the computer these days."
No phone. No computer. She doesn't live in the same state.
