Not the Bucket List or the Naughty/Nice list (although I admit I’m a helper on that one)…
The Christmas Card list.
Today, as I do every year, I sat down with it to try to “whittle” it down.
First, I searched my memory for all the vital family members we must send cards to.
Next, I listed our local friends and neighbors.
Then, I listed childhood friends, college friends, and the families of our children’s best friends, friends of our parents, church friends, school friends, teachers, the mail carrier, the kids’ bus driver, my husband’s work associates, my husband’s work friends (not the same thing!), my girlfriends (although, let’s be honest… I listed them in the ‘family’ column because they are like family to me!)
And the final tally is…
My list grew by seventeen.
I guess I am finding it impossible to channel my inner Heidi Klum...
You are out! Aufwiedersehen!
That’s okay… somehow, I have the feeling my Naughty/Nice list will go the same way.
