This past week was quite hectic with a few nights of getting home later than usual so I did not take the dog out on her regular long walk on Wednesday or Thursday. When I walk the dog the long route, we pass by the mailbox, and I pick up mail. Since we didn't go by on those two days and since it's not conveniently located, I didn't pick up Wednesday's or Thursday's mail until we walked by Friday after work. With the midterm elections quickly (thankfully) approaching, we are inundated with campaign ads both on TV and through the mail. The junk mail is bad enough when we're not in election season, but when we are it's not a good idea to skip mail pick up. It doesn't seem so bad when it's picked up and tossed out on a daily bases. After three days accumulation, it's appalling.
