Christmas Cards - Yay or Nay?

I feel like boycotting sending out a Christmas card this year.


I'm not really in the mood to spend the money on the perfect card, spending time finding the perfect picture of Davis for said card, spending.44 to mail each card, addressing 40+ cards to send out to people, 5 of which give a rats rump about my card.

2 of the people who give a rats rump are the grandmas.

The other 3 include my sister, a good friend and my aunt.

The other 35 people do what I do with the card, look at it and think wow, this is cute or wow this is really freakin' stupid, I can't believe they spent money on it, it ends up going into a card basket of sorts, or if you are really good you actually hang it up.  After Christmas, it goes into the recycling bin.

That was worth the .60 I spent on the card, the .44 cents I spent to mail it and the 10 hours it took me to address and put them all into envelopes.

Yes, it will take me 10 hours because I have a toddler running around.


Of course I'm getting a new fancy camera and I have to play photographer.  I suppose I could send a card out, just one more year.

Besides, Davis is the cutest kid I know and doesn't everyone I know want to see how adorable he is?

Hell yeah they do.

Maybe Maizy the wonder dog will make our Christmas card again.

Look for it peeps.

It will be memorable.

I feel the same way. Usually I end up not sending anything at all. I'm still undecided for this year.
