|The first one|
If my self-esteem was measured on how many Christmas Cards I receive each year - I would be on a major yuletide downer! Only 1, at this date.
2 Good Reasons why I only have 1 Christmas Card (so far)
1. It would help, if I sent them out.
Then perhaps I would get some in return. I haven't done that in a few years. My husband is the one, who has always been thoughtful and enjoyed this Christmas ritual. When I was a kid, I remember my parents received 100's of them. A lot of them, were from customers from my dads business. We also have a big family that lived across the country, so of course that was the time, to update us with photos and letters. Now days. with Facebook and all, they just don't send out cards anymore.
2. I haven't gone out to the mailbox yet.
Now isn't that just plain silly. No it's LAZY. It's cold out there. I wait it out, hoping the husband will walk out to get the mail. We have these cluster boxes - I avoid them during the rush, to pick up mail, because I don't want to have to talk with the neighbors. I know - I am bad. I mean, if I see them, I am nice and friendly. I just don't have anything to say.
Recently, the cluster mailboxes have been vandalized with mail stolen. So far, ours hasn't. That knowledge was enough for us, to retain a PO BOX and have all of our mail that is bills, or has information sent to the PO BOX. The Christmas Cards, wouldn't have gone to the PO. So,one of us, will have to go out and get the unimportant mail.
