25 Green Days of Christmas

Day 18 --


I realize I'm protecting the environment by not adding greeting cards I receive to the landfill. I hoard them instead.

I have every card and handwritten note I've received from the last fourteen years. There's a three shoe box size shopping bag full in the princess room closet. There are 100's hidden in a plant pot I've converted to a night stand. And more in the cute guys storage unit downstairs.

And that's after throwing away the envelopes that they came in. Ummmm... I'm adding to the landfill after all. Damn it!

After taking that into consideration, I'm sending postcards this year.

But don't get excited, you're more likely to get a squash than a card.

Wow. I've never thought of that, but it's a great idea! We decided last year that since we never get cards out in time for Christmas, and there's always that question of how to respect all the holidays of the season, we are officially sending New Years cards. I plan to make them, so I will take your 18th day advice and make them postcards! Thanks!
