I have conquered...

Yeah that evil USPS beast. I always have packages to mail for the dreaded season. I put it off for awhile but not too long. I had all of the presents wrapped and packaged into their respective mailers but had yet to make it to the post office. Today I bit the bullet and went during my lunch break. Kind of. I went at 11am rather than 12 because I doubt I was the only one out there with the same plans. Sure enough when I got there I was 3rd in line. By the time it was my turn there were at least 10 people in line behind me. Yuck!

BTW I can't believe the stupid high prices that they charge now for postage. Have you mailed a box lately? What a rip, it takes forever to get there, never makes it on time, and even then consider yourself lucky if the package makes it there intact. My father had received one that had tire tracks running across the box and it was completely mutilated. There was a sticker on top that said Damaged in Transit. No shit really? I'd go UPS or FedEx if I had a store closer to me but I don't so USPS it is. Good thing nothing I sent was of any serious value. Like at all. Remember? This year was a cheap Christmas. Hahaha!

Now I just need to get those damn Christmas cards addressed...hey I already have the stamps! But I think I need more envelopes. Dang.

Wow, you're a much stronger woman than myself. I hate the post office and gave up on Christmas cards after the first year the Husband and I were married. Our families are lucky if they receive a Christmas e-mail.

Good for you with the post office - I still have a couple packages to mail, and uh, ALL my Christmas cards. Actually, I still need to write them all and address them all too. Still pretty much freaking out. We shall overcome, though; that first week of January is going to be awesome.

Love the new background! I'm going to check that site out.

I STILL haven't addressed my cards, I was supposed to do that last night and got really really lazy. Huge surprise there...
