So I began this journey with great expectations and enthusiasm. I started in January, and I tripped a bit but stayed fairly on top of the writing until May.
In May my girls graduated from high school, and there was so much activity in our house it was far from calm and conducive to quiet time for writing letters.
In June I accepted a part time job at Barnes and Noble, so my free time was even more limited.
I sent out over 20 letters this year, so not a total wash. Twenty letters that I would not have sent if not for the challenge I found on another blog, The Non-Consumer Advocate. Kate writes some lovely posts about her progress and how fun it is to send and receive mail.
I also received many letters in return, and those were a lovely treat when I opened my mail box. Quickly looking at the list I once started, I receive at least 10 letters.
I think I’m going to amend this challenge for 2012, but with new stationary that I HAD to have there is no excuse for not continuing to write letters.
