I should have sent a card!
I’m embarrassed by how many times I said that just this year.
I have a mental impairment when it comes to cards. I like them, sometimes I buy them in bulk, but I rarely sign my name to one and put it in the mail.
Recently, I found four sympathy cards tucked into a pile of papers.
4 – FOUR – 4
That is a crying shame my friends. I can’t even remember when I bought them or who they should have been sent out to. I feel terrible!
I hope you will forgive me (whomever you are).
It gets worse.
Every year we forget my in-law’s anniversary.
Every. Single. Year.
Some years we call to wish them a happy anniversary three months late. It’s hard to decide if we’re being early or late to the party.
My husband, usually the mastermind of dates, has a mental block when it comes to his parents. Me? I forget birthdays, anniversaries, and important dates all the time.
I don’t mean to. In fact, I have enough good intentions to go around, but when left to themselves, good intentions are worthless.
Cardstore.com is changing my life.
I spent an hour last night sending people cards – mother’s day, birthday, congratulations.
Send me your address and I’ll send you a card.
I’m absolutely making up for lost time.
If you get a random birthday card from me, six months early, do me a favor and hang it on your refrigerator.
Why I Love Cardstore.com
- Their crazy awesome selection.
- Their super affordable prices.
- Mailing service.
- The option to schedule cards in advance.
Cardstore.com has a crazy awesome selection. So much better than the grocery store, my local pharmacy, or dare I admit, the Dollar Store.
I honestly expected their prices to be upwards of seven dollars.
Every time I pick up a card, it’s roughly five dollars. I don’t know when a piece of stock paper and a cheesy saying became such a hot commodity, but prices are high.
Cardstore.com is affordable.
Most of the prices I looked at were roughly three and a half dollars, including shipping. I was more than a little surprised and oh, so happy.
Thank you Cardstore.com for offering me a quality product at a reasonable price.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this is one holiday no-one wants to forget.
You know what they say…if mom isn’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!
I may just send myself one of these Mother’s Day cards. I’m partial to the woman with the suitcases.
Not that I want to run away or anything, but a little holiday might be nice.
Cardstore.com also has a little meme going onto honor our moms.
I don’t know about you, but I can remember all sorts of horrific little things my mother said. Now is your chance to get even. Go visit Cardstore’s Mother’s Day meme and write one of your mom’s favorite sayings on a vintage photo. Then you can pin it or share it and feel avenged.
My mom’s favorite sayings:
Don’t make me stop this car!
You want me to give you something to cry about.
I could go on and on, but my mother has Facebook and she’ll find a way to get even.
Love you mom!
I’m thankful my mom is a good sport. She loves when I write about her and all the life lessons she taught me.
Go send your mom a card and let her know how much you love her.
And while you’re at it, impress your relatives by scheduling a birthday card. Or better yet, an anniversary card!
