If you got a letter from me

And it was a little out dated, let me explain. I took the boys to get Wal-Mart pictures. We'll go on the safe side and say that it was July. Picture sending is not a simple task, and can only be done once the bugs are snug. I have to spread the pics out into several categories, label the backs, hand write a heart-felt note, find the addresses, AND have stamps in order to get them all out. This task is almost as monumental as sending Christmas cards; maybe I should have made the boys don Santa hats. So anyway, by the time the kiddos were snoring and I gathered all of my materials: scissors, pen, stationary, address book, and clips of the boys strained smiles, I was zonked. I would write 2, maybe 3 letters, realize that I was beyond tired, and pack everything away until a more convenient time. I finally finished the first phase of the process, and then proceeded to ride the letters around in the car with me instead of putting them in the mailbox, somehow thinking they would be better off at the post office which is nowhere near our house. So here it is September, and believe it or not, I still have 2 cards to send, without addresses on them. Who know what the notes on the inside say. When I first began the process, Eli couldn't even walk. Now he is practically running, but I hesitate to open the unsent for fear that they will make their way to the bottom of the to-do list pile and never reappear. Tomorrow's post will be about how I used to be better at correspondence and friendships. I promise I did. I blame it on the kids.
Oh, and if you didn't get WalMart pics, and would like some, please let me know. I'll send you copies within a couple of weeks of your request.
