THE CHRISTMAS CARD LIST

Tomorrow I will write and send out my Christmas cards.  Every year I pick out a day to do this annual, seasonal mailing.  Every year I buy boxes of cards and books of stamps, and then every year I procrastinate so bad that its New Years before I ever sit down to address the envelopes, and by that time I usually decide that I may as well save the cards for next year... which I never do because I will have misplaced them long before the holiday comes around again.  But this year will be different.  This year I will actually send the cards out!  The list of potential recipients grows daily as cards are delivered to the mailbox from more organized friends who were not on the original list... but thats okay, I have several years worth of cards stashed around the house, some even signed and addressed that can easily be recycled with a little bit of white-out.  Yep, this year will be the year that people actually get a card from me.  Just as soon as I find that book of stamps I just bought.....

i never actually get to send them out...  when i had my baby shower... i was supposed to send out thank you's...  and i never did... so i would put them in the diaper bag- and whenever i saw someone i would say "i lost my address book"  (so that they didn't think i forgot them)  and i got out of it easy!! lol   ray

Good Luck on getting the cards out. I was lucky , hubby addressed the cards and signed them, all I had to do was buy the stamps.  
Have a great day.

I was on the ball this year, but I average every-other-year with the cards. Last year, noone got one, this year I sent out about 40.  Most of them on "my list" my hubby had about 4 on his...I told him he needs to get more friends ;-)
