I have asked this question every day for the last 2 weeks. About 3 weeks ago the TV died. The parts have been ordered, but have not arrived. The kids get out of school for the holidays tomorrow and I was really hoping to have a working TV. Every day he answers the same thing,"No, not today!"
Today he answered "Yep, here ya go!"
He handed me a package and for a minute I was confused, I sure don't know what to do with TV guts! Then I looked at the address, it was from Jae! We were real life friends long before we were bloggy friends. Mail from home, how fun! When I opened it up inside was a lovely new ornament for my tree and a Christmas card, the first (and likely only one) this year. I already have both on display! Isn't my new ornament gorgeous? It's a silver dove with an quote from Emily Dickinson inscribed on the wing, "We never know how good we are until we are called to rise." Jae is just the best ever!
Since we moved overseas I have a noticed a huge drop in the number of actual paper cards we receive and a corresponding jump in the number of e-cards. Is this just a we moved overseas thing, or is this happening pretty much everywhere?
Here is my moose card holder with his lone Christmas card.
P.S. No we still haven't received the parts for the TV. Maybe tomorrow, I hope!
