I was elated to see our Christmas cards arrive in the mail today. I ordered them from Snapfish on October 19th, and receiving an order in just 8 days over here is nothing short of awesome.

You won’t believe what else we received.


Along with this year’s Christmas cards, came a returned Christmas card from last year. This this was stamped at the post office on December 8th. It’s been 10 months and 21 days or 325 days since we mailed this card. Really, postal service? Really?


Note the date of the post mark. Dec. 8!

I want to take this opportunity to apologize if anything I have ever sent to any one of you has gotten lost in postal service never-never land or if, you know, I have ever forgotten to finish writing on a card to you. Yes, that has happened as well. This past August, my sister-in-law informed me that I stopped writing mid-sentence in her birthday card. I didn’t even sign it. How embarrassing!

Have any of y’all ever had something like this happen? Mail returned (or delivered) incredibly late? Blatant and embarrassing forgetfulness?
