Writers Cramp

Well, it's that time of year again..the Christmas card writing time!

I didn't realize that I had so many friends and acquaintances..but once I drug out the Christmas cards ( yes, cheap skate that I am.. I bought lots of boxes of them at the end of the Season last year..and had about 7 boxes of new cards) I wound up using at least 5 boxes full of cards. I know that I have addressed at least 100 envelopes this evening.
Only thing is..all my friends and acquaintances don't live any where near me. Gee whiz! I have friends..they are just spread out all over the country.

Ahh well...the post office will love me this Christmas Season.....and I certainly hope that you all enjoy your hand hurts now least I haven't wound up with a paper cut on my tongue from licking envelopes...yet.
Have you ever done that before? Oh gracious sakes! It's funny... but not funny. Especially when you declare "ouch!" and your hubby across the room says "what did you do now?" and you are going" I juth cuth my thung with the onvelophth".. meanwhile you are sticking out your tongue looking cross eyed at the tip of it, trying to see just how bad it has been damaged. Yep..the price we pay for getting those Christmas cards out on time.

I have a cousin that doesn't send his out until February..I think he may be on to something there...ahh well.

Have a great evening!

Hi Tina :) This made me laugh today! I am a Christmas card person(shall we say enthusiast?), too. I love to see them all boxed up and brand new, and I love to crack the boxes open and begin the marathon writing.

We have friends from all over and a large family and church family, too. I'm starting next week, and will think of you then :) Love to you! Q
