I got my Christmas Cards all filled out complete with notes inside and all the envelopes addressed last night and ready to mail. I only had one stamp left so a visit to the post office is in order today in order to get these off and in the mail. This is good for me to be mailing cards BEFORE Christmas. I'm usually one that will send out Happy Holiday cards after Christmas or even Happy New Year Cards after the new year. So we are a little more with the system here or at least with the cards. I still have a lot of wrapping to do. That is on the agenda for tomorrow and tomorrow night! Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get things done!

Congratulations, I am not nearly so far along. I will get some things done tonight. I have had Christmas already with part of my family, my daughter, her husband, and the grandbaby were here for a few days. At least I did not have to mail their presents. I will get some things done today and tonight. Along the way, I signed up to accept two mystery shops, what was I thinking? Friend, if I do not get back to you before Christmas, I wish you a very happy one.

Well I'm just now getting back to you. I've been sick since last week, shrugged it off with the holidays. Then thought Sat, that I should go to after hours walk in, well they closed early and I missed dr. Oh well. I survived but still don't feel well and still coughing. I'll go in this afternoon or tomm. We will see. I'm just tired and want to rest up after the weekend and holidays. I passed on the mystery shops for now but they had some great offers in my area. We had a lot of pizza shops to do that offered $30. Not bad! I hope you got everything done on time and enjoyed Christmas Eve and Day!

I do not get as many good shops, my area is not so urban. In my hubby's family, the comment is that there are twelve days of Christmas. I will get their stuff mailed. I did Christmas with two other parts of my family on Christmas, as well as celebrating my daughter in law's birthday. I had a cold, not too bad, from Tuesday through Christmas. Try horseradish. It helps.

It's the cough that is really bad. I'm about to resort to a shot of whiskey :)

I haven't even gotten my shopping started. We celebrate after Christmas but I do make sure each of the brood have at least one thing under the tree. When they realized they could get twice as many things after the holiday they had no problem waiting an extra day or two. Happy wrapping!

Now that is an idea! Sounds like a great plan and saves you money too. Awesome!

Good for you! I bet you'll have a lot of surprised people to receive their card from you a little 'early!' I finally got mine out on Wednesday. I had the post office problem- they were closed early on Tuesday for some reason, so I was delayed a day. I think most on my list will receive them before Christmas.

That is odd that they were closed early with it not a holiday!! Glad you got them sent off--with the slow mail these days, no telling when they will be delivered!

Oh, they have really cute Christmas stamps that everyone seems to be using this year! Get some of those. If you get them in the mail today, some people may even get them by Christmas haha :) I don't put notes inside of mine, just in some people's, but not all. Most people I send to know everything about what's going on with me, so really I just send the card.

I will get Christmas stamps for sure! I have an assortment here from the cards I have already received. They include Mary and baby Jesus, a Christmas tree, a Reindeer. So far, that is the only 3 designs I have gotten. Most of them I got had Mary and baby Jesus stamps :) They are pretty! Happy holidays!
