I have to put this out there.
I'm terrible about sending Christmas cards. I don't know exactly when this happened, because I used to be pretty good at letter writing, so Christmas cards were really a breeze. We had friends in distant places, and I had a bunch of pen pals in the US and overseas, and Christmas cards were just like a natural extension of the things I did all through the year. So what happened?
Honestly, I'll bet that I haven't sent Christmas cards in the past FIVE years. And in that time, some friends have hung in there and continued to send cards, but most senders have either become discouraged by my laziness, or else they became lazy, too. (I hope it's the latter situation. Makes me feel like less of a slug.)
So as of right now, I'm going to make myself send five Christmas cards. I'm going to squash down the temptation to make it difficult by writing long, newsy letters, adding photos, or anything else that could give me an excuse to abandon this task as too complicated . I'm going to keep it simple and get it done. Five cards.
And now I have to go, because I'm getting nervous about this already.
