From NaComLeavMo! What a fun post. Sorting junk mail... really? :) BTW, I love Kansas City. We recently moved to Seattle from St. Louis after living there for 5 years. It became a tradition that we'd take a little road trip to Country Club Plaza for the weekend every year on our wedding anniversary. Now that we've moved far away, I'll really miss that!
