I generally send about 300 Christmas cards. This year I'm sending considerably fewer - not because I'm feeling less festive, but because I'm not doing my usual entertaining. I'm always sending them early because they include party invitations. This year since I'm not doing that I was very laid back about getting any cards out. And, it seems less important to send them to folks I see regularly anyway.

I just mailed the first bunch of cards today. I have some others to do, but I'm glad to have at least gotten started. I seem to be moving slower with everything this season.

Of course, because I'm not using my regular system I suspect I'll be still sending them into the new year as I think of other people I want to send them to. Maybe I'll ust have to cross out "Merry Christmas" and put in "Happy New Year."


We got tickets to go see Billy Joel and Elton John in Wichita in March. We were on multiple computers and couldn't even get into the system, much less actually buy tickets.

So, Greg suggested I just go to Dillons, that's a select a seat outlet. He said, "So, are you dressed." I answered, "yes," and I was - in the sense that I was wearing clothes. But, again, I was out in public in my flannel pajamas. I'm not proud, but there's the truth.

However, I was glad I didn't wait because I was not exactly the first person in line by the time I got there. But, we got tickets.
