It’s still damp and wet….

We seem to be stuck in this grim weather pattern. Definitely feels like Groundhog Day again. But one day it will change. The sun will shine. The cycle will be broken.

It’s funny how sometimes it’s the indirect things that truly demonstrates the changes in life.

Last night I was writing Christmas cards. I remember a few years back. I would sit with my partner. Christmas music cd on the hifi. Going through the address list. Even with the two of us it would take ages to get the cards completed.

Then life happened. Aspergers Patenting. Loss. Single Parenting. Isolation.

So last night I started writing the cards. The same Christmas music cd on the hifi. Then the change. I was through the card list after 4 songs. 4 songs….. What happened to having the listen to the cd several times. Hours down to minutes to complete.

The rapidly diminished card list tells me everything I need to know about the path life has pushed me down. But it is what it is. And actually writing cards is clearly difficult for me. One person almost got a happy Easter and my sister was almost wished happy birthday…. Actually I’ve always had a habit of doing that. Somethings don’t change.

  1. One definitely needs Christmas music to write Christmas cards. If you wrote Happy Birthday to your sister you could just say you wanted to be the first to wish her a Happy Birthday. πŸ™‚
    Talking about birthdays, there is a kind of bday post today on my blog.
    And yes, C’est la vie is a favorite saying of mine!

  2. I have a binder where I keep all the Christmas cards we get each year as most of them are photo cards and I like to watch the families grow. Through the years I have seen people ditching the habit of cards (Grrrr! I like my snail mail and binder!) and just posting their family photo on social media saying “Here’s our card!” Not my favorites, for sure.

    I’m sorry the Christmas card tradition was hard for you. But as a fellow Christmas card sender by snail mail, I send you an air high 5! Thinking of you! x

  4. I sent out Christmas cards last year, my first Christmas without Den. This year, after buying cards and postage, I can’t bring myself to do it. I’ve tried twice and haven’t addressed one envelope.

    Here’s hoping for better times next year.

  5. My best card malfunction was to send a cousin an I’m sorry for you loss card on his birthday. I got a message thanking him for understanding how difficult it was to lose his youth. Sigh. Muppets Unite!!

  6. I only did the cards thing a couple of times. My family is small and my friends mostly weren’t Christian. I don’t get cards either, so I don’t feel bad about it.

    Things are indeed always changing… some changes are bad, some changes are good, and some changes are very difficult to detect, like no change at allπŸ˜‚πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
