Beginnings of a Blog

Friday, December 5, 2008
OK, here is my foray into blogging. It's my therapy...well, hopefully. We'll see how it goes.

Today is the day after my 41st birthday. Wasn't I just 30 yesterday and 21 two weeks ago? Well, not anymore. Of course I don't feel any older than 21. Just the circumstances of my life have changed and for the better of course. I had a fantastic birthday with my husband, Henry, and daughters, Emma (6) and Harper (2). It was filled with lots of love. The girls made me the most beautiful homemade cards, which I absolutely adore. It's those homemade gifts that tug at your heartstrings.

It's back to normal today. The minimal effort that I so enjoy on my birthday has come to an end. Today Harper and I will be shopping for holiday cards. I usually have our cards printed by
Tiny Prints but this year, we are taking a different approach. Henry insists that we take a more personal approach rather than the "cold" one we've used in years past. This cold approach would be the one where I receive the card from Tiny Prints and stick it into an envelope and send it off. I don't necessarily see this approach as cold but rather efficient. We send about 75 holiday cards. It's quite time consuming for one person, yes, that would be I, to spend hours upon hours personally addressing the inside of each and every card. But this year, it is the way we are doing things. And you can bet that I'll be recording the time it takes to complete this task.

And after card shopping, we will do our grocery shopping which I will have little patience to do because I will be too anxious to get home to start the holiday cards.
