For the past 8 years I’ve sent out Christmas cards. Usually homemade and usually with a letter. And I try to add a personalized note to each one, too. Because I’m an over-achiever like that. Well, I was. I’ve slacked off on a lot of stuff this past year. Something about having a third kid and a job that just sucks the time into a vacuum, never to be found again.
So this year I don’t have time to make them.
And I haven’t yet written a “summary of 2009” letter.
And I still haven’t decided if I’m actually going to even send out cards.
I do love Christmas cards.
I don’t, however, love the post office.
I do love licking envelopes.
I don’t love addressing them.
I do love writing little personalized notes to each person.
I don’t love feeling rushed.
Just about the time my desire to avoid the post office at all costs had almost outweighed my desire to show off my cute kids, I saw that Megan over at AMomTwoBoys was hosting a bloggy holiday card exchange. I can now solve my problem by posting a holiday card here!
If you’re lucky, you’ll probably get a 2009 wrap-up at the end of the year.
Because really? I don’t write that thing for y’all, I write it for me. It’s fun to look back over the year and see how things have changed.
