OK, here’s the deal–Mike and I ceased sending out Christmas/Holiday cards a few years ago. Why? Because it was just adding fuel to the fire that is otherwise known as “The Mad Scramble to Get Everything Done Before the Holidays.”
This year? No different. Actually, yes it IS different–it’s crazier than normal. I can 100% guarantee that you will not receive a card from us. We don’t discriminate. We don’t send them only to close friends and family. We don’t send them to people we don’t talk to much during the year. We don’t send one to my almost-90-year-old grandparents who treasure every card and letter from me. We don’t send them to ANYONE.
So don’t be offended. Because even if you are, I am not going to run out to the store and buy you a card and send it to you. It’s just the way it is. For now. Should Mike and I ever have a child (God willing . . .everyone please keep your fingers crossed on that one), trust me, you’ll get a card. And it will probably have 30 pictures of the little one in it because I won’t be able to decide on which picture is the absolute cutest.
As a side note, I love getting mail that is not of the bill variety and does not reference the words “amount due” anywhere on it, so feel free to send ME a card. Just, you know, don’t sit by your mailbox waiting for one to arrive in return.
