It's happened... The day I dread in the Christmas Season. The day when, much too early, I receive the first Christmas card of the year. The day when from here on out I feel the pressure to get it done myself. I thought the first card of the season came a few days ago. As I took the mail from our box I saw the envelope and I cursed the skies. For heaven's sakes it's only the 2nd of December I cried! Turned out it was just a newsletter. Whew- that was a close one. But I knew this day was to come in short order because a friend from the past had requested my zip code on facebook. I thought about unfriending her for this vicious act of being so prompt, thus making us all feel the need to be on top of things as well. Instead I gave her my zip code.
And yes, it was her card that came today. It was a printed off sheet of photos of her twins doing all sorts of things from winning essay contests, catching fish, playing sports of all kinds and showing off the green motorcycle purchased by Jack (age 11?) himself. Oh won't that green machine make my kids green with envy. Almost as envious as their mother is over the fact that Janet is done with her cards and can forget about it from Dec 5th-25th. I am green I say. And not a festive goes-with-red green either!
Well I guess I better stop blogging and boo-hooing about it and get to work. All I can say (and I say this each year) is how are we going to top last year's letter? Too cocky? Sorry!
