I've been putting my cards off as well. I moved this time last year and I haven't talked with everyone I want to send a Christmas card to. I've only done a few and I've basically said how I'm doing, I miss everyone, Merry Christmas etc. But I like dmom's idea of putting in a memory we share. I think I might do that.
I usually send a card, a handwritten message , and a paper with some of my favorite photos from the year on it!
Next year I'll send you one if you want!!

At this point in life we've gotten so old and into such a routine and nothing really ever happens anymore that my newsletters pretty much consist of, "The kids are still doing ok and are moving again, we're still working at the same jobs and doing the same thing and yes, we still have two dogs..... yeah... thats about it...:
I have found however that my letters over the years have become a sort of written history of our life the last 25 years. If I want to remember when a certain thing happened I can pull out the old ones and read through them and see. (Except for some reason I'm missing 2003.... maybe a copy is on my old computer, but I thought I transfered all my files over.)
