If you were expecting a Christmas card from me, this will go a long way to explaining why you haven’t (yet):
Yes, that’s a stack of my still-unfinished cards. I feel like I jinxed myself by ordering them Thanksgiving weekend. I had them for so long I felt like I needed to write a personal message on each of them, since I had the time. Then, rather than mailing the ones I finished, I decided to wait until they were all done and send them all at once. So now, half the people on my list will be getting clearly-late Christmas greetings and the other half will be getting the (slightly) more timely New Year’s greetings.
Altogether, a very lame effort on my part.
