Christmas Cards are Done!

Having a baby is wreaking havoc on my ability to get things done. I know I know GASP. It’s funny the things that you hear pre-baby, things that you scoff at, sure I knew this whole mom thing wasn’t going to be easy but I naively thought that I could do it and keep my well-ordered life. I have to say things are FALLING THROUGH THE CRACKS everywhere. It is driving me crazy. I am having a terrible time trying to compromise what I want to get done with what is realistic to get done with a baby. Saying no and compromise are really hard for me.

Thankfully with the important stuff I just know to start early. My Christmas Cards fell into that ‘important stuff’ category… my laundry pile however is taller than it has ever been. I managed to address my cards weeks ago. I wrote the messages in the card last week and today I finally finished my Christmas Letter, something that I put into our card every single year. It is a labor of love for sure but we have so much to celebrate and it is nice, especially for family and friends not on facebook, to get to see what we have been up to.

So with my Christmas Cards posted and sent I could breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy. I love getting cards from family and friends and I usually keep them up well after Christmas. It’s like a big wall of love, all the smiling faces, and salutations from everyone we care about.
