I'm doing my Christmas cards tonight. I've done uh, eleven.
I have only about fifty to go.
Yes, I still write Christmas cards. I make my kids sign their name to each one and I enclose pictures of my trio with them too.
Right now, I have no idea.
I'm noticing that every year I get fewer cards in the mail too. Maybe I'm receiving less because I'm offending people. Who knows? But really I think it's because they take so much time to do.
Personally, I love getting Christmas cards in my mail box. Not via my in-box but through the real mail system, the one that requires a stamp.
But I also must admit that I find it a total pain in the tush to get the cards out – it's expensive too.
Still, I always try to get my sixty or so cards out on December 11th, as this seems to get all my cards to everyone, even those in Europe, by Christmas. I have two days to go.
So, tonight I am going to try and get about half of the cards done. I figure I'll be done by about midnight.
And yes, the e-mailed computerized holiday cards are starting to look better and better right about now. Actually, they're looking really good but I've already bought these pretty 'send in the mail' type cards so I've gotta use them.
I'm off to get a hand cramp.
