Did you send out a lot of Christmas cards? If you do, did you use a custom rubber stamp? It would have saved you the need to sign each one, or to put on a return address sticker.
I cheated. Yup, I call it cheating. I called a lot of the people that I care about. Our phone has a lot of minutes on it and we do not have to pay for toll calls. It was nice to hear each person talking, it seemed to me to be more personal than just a piece of paper that could be sent. When I was young (I won’t tell you how long ago that was, ahem.) I would try to make individual cards to those that I wanted to send a card to. These days there is also e-mail that can be sent out to people. Most of the people that I know do have a computer, not always hooked up to the internet, but still a computer. E-mail does not seem so personal. After all I do like to talk. If you have read some of my blogging articles, it is rather obvious.
