I intend to send out Christmas letters soon. Maybe tomorrow.
Here’s the problem, though.
First of all, the two weeks prior to Christmas were so busy. Three different employees took time off for the holidays which meant I had to cover their shifts personally. Because of that, I worked 104 hours the two weeks prior to Christmas. Plus, I had a house-guest. Plus, there was the whole thing about Christmas coming, which meant decorating and buying gifts and making the magic happen.
So, I didn’t write the letter early. Or even on time. But I wrote it.
Then, I had to collect updated addresses from a few of my nomadic friends.
After that, I decided to create a new address data base on my computer. I used to have one but that was an old computer and I lost all that information in a computer crash a few years back.
So, I typed in all the addresses, adding in the updated ones I’d acquired.
Now, I want to use the power of the computer to simply print out mailing labels, but first I will have to figure out how to do that exactly. I have the labels. I have the computer. I have the addresses all typed in. It’s just a matter of time.
Time keeps on ticking and my “New Year’s Letter” will be a “Valentine’s Day Letter” if I don’t get it together and quick.
But let’s contemplate sand castles built for the holidays at The Hotel del Coronado, shall we?
(I don’t know those people in the background but they wouldn’t move along. Rude.)
