Where is my Christmas card list? It’s time to get busy writing my cards and I can’t find my list. For several years now I’ve kept the list on my computer. I even set it up to print address labels to make sending the cards easier. I wanted to update a couple of addresses so I went looking for the list. But I can’t find it.
I’ve looked through all my document files. It’s not there. I used the “search” feature on the computer and it looked all around, trying to find it. No success there either.
My next thought was to see if I saved last year’s cards so I could at least make the list of who sent cards to me. That would speed things up a bit … if I knew what I did with the cards. I’m sure I saved them but where did I put them? And if I find a group of cards rubber-banded together, how can I be sure they’re from 2007? I didn’t mark the year on them in any way.
I guess there’s nothing left for me to do but sit down with my address book and recreate the list. This is a bother because I had hoped to get the cards in the mail in the next day or two. I have a busy schedule tomorrow so it may be the weekend before I can get the cards in the mail. I’ve already purchased the stamps and I do know where they are.
But where could that list have gone? Surely I wouldn’t have deleted it from the computer.
