I know, I know…you think I am crazy. It’s already the end of January and those of you who made your New Year’s resolution to exercise have already deserted the gym. But you see, I am a little more pragmatic in my decision making. First, I had to decide whether or not I was even going to make a New Year’s resolution. Then, I had to decide on one. Lordy, too many decisions for me!!!!! So here I go- I’m putting it out there and hitting the enter key. No turning back now. It’s the best thing to do when you are trying to kick any bad habit (ehhemm, insert your vice here_______) to ensure success. My number one New Year’s resolution is to send out Christmas cards this year. What you say? That is Just. Plain. Weird….
But here is why. I have this very, very, bad habit of buying (you name it types of) cards and then not sending them out. I have even gotten so far as addressing all of the cards on my Christmas list and then not affixing a postage stamp and mailing. Then; just so that I can remind myself of how terrible I am at all of this Hallmark greeting stuff, I will save the evidence of my affliction. Please, please tell me that there are others out there that are as bad as I am!!!! I need a support group!
In all seriousness, I really do want to take a few minutes to tell the people in my life that they are important to me. The written word on a beautiful card is such a wonderful way to do just that. Who wouldn’t want to reciprocate. Just look at one of the beauties I received last year. I can’t show the entire card because it was a tri-fold with pics on 8 sides. But here is the unique part…
My cards will look more like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree but it’s the thought that counts, right? So; when the Christmas decorations come out with the 4th of July decorations, I will be on it!!! Maybe, just maybe, one of my organized friends can show me how to get my contacts to a usable place so that I can print labels? I have no clue how to do that.
So; come this time 2015, we can check back to see if I did indeed keep my New Year’s resolution….Or, If I need to seriously call the doctor mamma, and have my head examined for putting this out there!!!! Ya’ know, I am trying to kick a thirty year old bad habit 🙂
