As usual, I “exaggerated” about my return date when I set up the auto-reply on my email. Unfortunately, even that exaggerated date has now passed, and now I must answer my email.
I was a bit scared to turn on the computer, but since I have my life divided into various email accounts and programs, it makes it a little easier to handle one-by-one. A tip for sorting out 10 days of spam, by the way—sort the inbox by subject. When you get 10 emails all saying “I sent you an e-card”, it’s pretty clear none of them need to be double-checked.
