OMG I can't belive that I am so disorganized this year - but here's my Christmas Card confessional. Ready? First of all - thanks to all that participated. I love doing this and totally enjoy being the postal elf. Now that you understand that - here's the stuff. I had the list printed - it was done!! I was so proud. I hit DELETE instead of save - and square one. This was mid October - not to worry - there were only 20 names then. So I found the names in my PM's (I had been putting them on the list as I got them to be ORGANIZED) ugh....redid it hit SAVE...and was proud. Then in late Nov. I got a few people that couldn't do it, okay no biggie - take them off the list (leave them on for Christmas spirit) done - what to put in those holes - I was trying to keep this alphabetical. The final product? I'm thankful you're on the list - somewhere. Then got to talking with one member and she said take me off - okay so I did - but had the list printed. So I redid the list and shredded the rest. I didn't want to upset anyone, so as I did the list again - I HIT DELETE instead of save on this program...of mine....and slowly listened to my brain glub and boil. Redid the list from the first printed list where I kept you on (you know who you are) lol...and shredded the rest when I got the email that said - Leave me on....Okay (snort) I'll just add her back in - NO biggie - really. I had a cup of coffee with ....no I had a cup of Baileys with a splash of coffee. or two - who keeps count? So then I printed the lists - and thought okay this is great - I'm done. Thanksgiving day after working - I set down with my cards, and my lists and I'm done with about 9 cards and then I notice TWO typos. OMG! Nothing to worry about.... So I went back in, fixed those, printed the list - Again....shredded the other lists, and opened the first 9 cards CAREFULLY - I mean it was really good. You'd never know. Resealed them!! Quite professional looking at this point still. Except......... I forgot to put the NEW list IN the first 9 cards......so I opened them again....and sealed them AGAIN.....and I'm on the 10th card.....and go to check that person off the list - and OH FOR.. WHAT THE? OH NOoooooo. Yup - I had omitted her. So she's on a sticker.....she was like one of the first people to sign up (Slap head have another coffee thingy) and I opened the cards - all 31 of them again. Then I had to tape them.....shut....OMG they look pathetic. So as I'm taping the backs of these with the newest, corrected, and complete list (roflmlistoff) DF looks at me and says -So you're working 2 jobs and the board list huh? Picks up the envelope and says - you know if those gals have kids like ours? You had better tell them that it wasn't the difficult child's that opened these and taped them shut - IT WAS YOU STAR..... SO when you get your card - some of which have been opened more than 4 times - PLEASE accept my Christmas Cheer because I'm still laughing. If I were to get upset I'd cry - lol. So anyway - they're done - and going to the post office NOW....before I find another typo or wake up in the middle of the night wondering how to spell some town starting with E in Canada ending in Coke - or know that someone lives on a street that ends in EM not EN like contact lens solution.... And that everyone GOT on - and I'm just so happy to have this done this year - lol. THEY'RE UGLY BUT THEY ARE FULL OF LOVE - lol. AND I OPENED THEM! and of course when you make a written typo - there are NO cards to be found anywhere in the world like the 4 boxes YOU bought - ugh.... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!
