I decided to make a new years resolution, starting today.
Let me explain. I sent my Mom's birthday card on Friday, November 12. Her birthday was the NEXT day Saturday, November 13. COME ON...this is not email, Judy, it takes a couple of DAYS to get from one mailbox to the other!
I am so disappointed in myself, I honestly can't think of one birthday card that arrived on time in the year 2010. So sad.
In the year 2011, I will put forth every effort to get birthday cards out early or on time.
How am I going to do this you ask? I have a couple of ideas that I am excited to implement this year:
- Make a list of all the birthdays I need to remember
- Put all the birthdays in my phone under their contact and have my phone remind me a week in advance (I don't know if this is possible, but David will help me figure it out. Maybe there is a phone app for this)
- Start buying birthday cards in advance to have on hand, so when I remember, I will have a bunch purchased (or made by me, a designer. Go figure, what a thought...maybe making birthday cards is a good resolution for next year if this one goes well)
Can't wait to hear your resolutions! Lets see how I do with this one :)
