My friend Trish offered to take care of Manny's birth announcements while I was still in Florida. She was busy trying to sell me on the idea while I screamed YES YES YES into the phone. It was either have her do them, or begin planning on how I was going to forgive myself for not doing them at all. Letting someone do that for me was a special sort of letting go that I'm getting quite good at-- at least compared to last year this time.
They arrived two weeks ago in a box that also contained envelopes, return address stickers and stamps. Stamps!
And just like that, she helped me kill the rest of January's list. That is a good friend.
