There I said it. I give up! It just isn't going to happen this year. I kept deluding myself that I really would do it but I have finally admitted defeat. The box you see there, has been sitting on my counter for 4 months and 12 days. It contains my holiday cards. I was so proud I actually got them designed and ordered before Valentine's Day this year! Ah, the best laid plans...They came between Christmas and New Year's and life was busy so I thought I'll get to them after the kids go back to school. Then the cleaning crew "organized" my stacks and the box got put at the bottom of the stack, making it much less visible and in the way.

January came and went. I thought I'd put a cute Valentine's sticker on them and mail them in February. That didn't happen and I thought oh I'll put a cute little message on the envelop making a joke over them being late and send them at Easter. That didn't happen. Then I thought I'll send them so they arrive on April Fool's that would be clever and cute. That didn't happen. So finally this week after moving the stack and box for the umpteenth time I decided it was time to give up.

I am not super woman after all. I can't do everything. And this year one of the things that is getting skipped are the holiday cards! And I am not going to beat myself up about it. Hopefully, I'll do better next year or decide not to do them before I go to the trouble and expense of ordering them.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great 2008. Here is a picture of the holiday card.

If you must have an actual copy to put on your fridge leave a comment with your email address (or just email me) and I'll put you one in the mail. Otherwise consider this your holiday card from our family.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day, Happy St. Patrick's Day, Happy Easter, Happy April Fool's Day, well you get the idea!

Why not just include it with your 2008 card. That might be motivation to do it this year! Start addressing now for '08!

I can't see it either so stick one in the mail to me. I don't care if it comes in November!

Please bring me one to dance class! Do not mail it -- way too much trouble. You know how I feel about the whole holiday card issue.

Well, I have many cards/photos that you've sent out in the past all in a file. I"d love to add this one to the mix. If it's not too much trouble. (LOL) Please send mine. (I'll be happy to pretend it's a Mother's Day card.)
