I’ve gone and done it.
For the first time in at least ten years, I didn’t send out Christmas cards.
You see, I waited much too long to take a picture of the kids. I kept telling myself that we could wait one more week. What was one more week? But then things kept happening, and finally the weekend that was to be my final deadline came and went with all of us being sick and barely able to function, much less posing and smiling for a picture.
I can’t think of a worse recipe for a photo than two sick kids, one of them a toddler who has hit the terrible twos with a vengeance.
So I didn’t upload the picture, the card never got printed, I never had to go pick them up, and I didn’t have to spend a bunch of time addressing them.
I feel sort of bad about it, because I know many people look forward to having a picture of the kids.
But then again, I sort of don’t.
Maybe I could send out New Year’s cards?
