I got our Christmas cards mailed today. That is a huge relief. I read in the paper today that this is the busiest postal day of the year. With that in mind, Abbey and I drove a few miles out of the way to a smaller post office to buy stamps. We live pretty close to a local post office, but the lines are soooooo long, and standing in line with a 3-year old isn't very fun for either of us. This other, smaller post office is a well-kept secret in these parts. It's never crowded, and I can get in and out in about 3 minutes...well worth the drive! I saved a lot of time, but don't laugh if you get our Christmas card and it has a Disney character or Muppet stamp on it. They were out of Christmas stamps (unbelievable!), and so I let Abbey choose from the available designs. It wasn't exactly what I had in mind, but it sure made Abbey's day! She was pretty taken with the Little Mermaid and Miss Piggy!

Tomorrow is the kid's last day of school for 2005. I went to their class parties this afternoon, and as we were walking to the car, they kept telling me that they didn't have school on Wednesday. And, I kept telling them that they did. I've had it written on my calendar for months, and of course I'm never wrong. Just a few minutes ago I decided to double check...and I'm so glad I did. I might have figured it out on Wednesday when the parking lot was empty, but who knows? So what a treat! An extra day at home with of my most favorite things! And yes, for once, I was wrong!
