- No offense to the post office, but its frustrating to come up with frugal gifts, only to spend that much and more on mailing them.
- We seem to be getting fewer holiday cards from friends, and more from businesses. Not that I can talk: About a third of my list will be getting e-mail cards again this year.
- I don't feel old until I get cards that read, "Johnny is graduating from college this year ..."
- My holiday and gift pantries have come in handy once again. Didn't need any extra wrapping paper or ribbons, and some of the freebies I stashed away are going to help round out some Christmas baskets.
Hope all your holiday preparations are going well!
