My Christmas card alternative

Filed under: Just Stuff,Survival Strategies — theotheri @ 4:31 pm

First of all, to all our friends who did not send us a Christmas card this year – thank you, thank you, thank you!  

To friends who did send us a card, also thank you.  Because I’ve discovered it’s not as easy as I thought to stop sending cards.  There are people with whom I communicate rarely, but who I still care about and with whom I don’t want to lose touch altogether.  

So I’ve decided that every year, some time between Thanksgiving and Valentines day, I will do my part to stay in touch by phone or email or letter.

Or – in rare cases – even a Christmas card.   

And who knows?  Maybe I will relieve some others from a burdensome obligation to send us a Christmas card too.
