Oops! A Little Late!

Wow, I can’t believe I missed the March update! I apologize! I didn’t even realize it until someone sent an email and told me they hadn’t seen an update since February! I guess when you don’t get Google Reader updates on your own website that can happen!

Life got in the way for me, March was a hectic month, I took a little birthday trip out to San Diego to spend some time with one of my best girlfriends for 6 days, had a blast and I guess I have been playing catch up since! I left on March 1st and actually left my 16 year old son in charge of putting the boxes out to be picked up by the mail man. He has been helping me with the cards as his community service project for school so I figured that could be part of his duty. I made it very easy for him and 1861 cards were mailed for the March mailing!

I owe a bunch of you notes that put a note in  your box, I apologize, the deadline was right at the same time as my trip so I put them off until I got back and then the notes got put under a pile on my table and forgotten about. I am going to get to them this week!

As for the April mailing which consisted mostly of Armed Forces Day and Mother’s Day cards we sent 2002 cards! I have to say there were over 300 Armed Forces Day cards, which was pretty great! Still not enough to give one to each soldier that uses our cards but baby steps right?

Thank you to everyone who sent postage donations!

Our next mailing deadline is May 4th and is for Father’s Day and 4th of July cards.

Oh and thank you for the increase in the number of birthday cards, there were so many more this time around!

Until next time!
