Christmas Cards

Would you rather get a Christmas card the first week of February, or not get a Christmas card at all?

Is it really bad form to send your Christmas cards/letters over a month late?

Is it particularly bad form when you always send Christmas, birthday, and anniversary cards late? I'm not talking a couple of weeks late ... I mean several months late.

I thought so.

OK. So I'm in bad form. I've been in bad form for years. It doesn't help that I can't find my addresses.

I'll do better in 2007. And I'll start by sending out our 2006 Christmas cards.

I'm really not as thoughtless and selfish as it seems. Or, maybe I am, but I promise, it's not in a malicious way.

Sigh. Next year. I'm going to do better next year.

I think you need a "J" to organize your Christmas list.

I have mine in excel with columns to check when I get a return card. After two years without a return card, they get moved to the "no more card for you" tab. The only way to get back on the "good friend" tab is to send a christmas card, I don't care when. Late is better than none.

Oh! I do have exceptions, mostly flighty family members.

It's really fun to receive a card/letter after the furious holiday is over. You might be able to even sit down and relax with the card.

I'd be okay receiving one in February than not at all. Hey, things happen.

I didn't even open the majority of my Christmas cards until about a week ago.

My name is Robert Key and I am a runner from Houston, Texas. I saw your blog listed when I was looking through the RBF directory and very much enjoyed reading some of your entries. As for Christmas cards being sent "late", if I'm not mistaken we are to celebrate the birth of Christ year round, so send some now, then next month, then the next month, etc. As for your injury, I can sympathize. I've had a few setbacks in my time as well, but somehow we make it through.

I have a web site at that is inspirational stories for walkers, runners and athletes of all ages and abilities. A new feature I have recently added to the site is a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database where members of my site can find a blog of interest to them based on other walkers, runners or athletes of similar abilities, goals and interests. To my knowledge it is the only one of its kind specifically for walkers and runners on the internet. I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to put a link to your blog in our Running Blog Database. Just click on "Link your running blog" under "Free Features" from the home page. If you want to learn more about my running background, just click on "Meet Robert" from the main menu , or to learn more about my involvement in the running community, click on "Faithful Soles in the news" in the left column under "Weekly Features". I also have a blog that I just started at, but most of my running information is on my web site. Also, if there is anyone else in your blogger network that you think would be interested in listing their blog, please feel free to pass this information along to them. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.
