Dropping the ball

My son graduated from high school in May 2006...I know you can count - that was 4 years ago.

If you have children you know how hard it can be to get them to send out "thank you" cards for the things they receive from friends and family.  Jeff is a good example - being a young male, it's practically impossible to get him to do this.  I'm pretty sure I impressed on him, way back in 2006, that he most definitely needed to send out his thanks to family for the graduation gifts and monies he received from them.

Well, I was digging through my thank you cards, looking for a nice one to send my brother, and I stumbled upon these....

I kept reaching in and coming out with more....each card filled out and neatly tucked into a blank envelope.  I'm pretty sure he got as far as filling them out, didn't have the addresses and asked me to address them and mail them out for him....looks like I dropped the ball on this one!

BIG TIME!!!!

Family will still get their "thank you's" from Jeff's graduation.....4 years late!!!

LOL!!! I have done that SO many times! THAT my friend is why I LOVE LOVE LOVE my SEND OUT CARDS business! You think of someone, or get a thought to send a birthday card, thank you note or greeting and it is fleeting at best. THEN you have to go buy the card, write it out, stamp it, take it to mail out....Not with SOC! You pick one out of 16,000 online, type it out in your OWN handwriting font, and they HAND address it and HAND stamp it and mail it out for only .62 CENTS!!! Now I am frugal, and you can't even do that at the dollar store! If you want to send out a card on me for free, and try it, just go to my website:

Heck! Send two out! :) Not trying to be an infromercial, but this is one of the greatest things to ever happen to me, my husbands business and our family.
xxoo I love you! John said I should fly out to visit my refound friend! :)
