Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

I used to. But now, I don't have the energy. I work one full time joke and another part time job. My part time job is that of a college professor ... and the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is spent grading papers and doing all the paperwork to end my course. I'm exhausted this time of the year.

No. I haven't sent any holiday cards for several years.
I always put it off until it was too late probably because I didn't really enjoy preparing and sending cards.

Yes, we still send, still write notes, and never quit doing it, but we are retired and have time to sit and write, and enjoy getting letters and cards in the good old mail.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Yeah, I still do. I have lived all over this country and have relatives everywhere but here in Virginia. I still receive cards from most of my relatives and I love it!! I also have friends in many states and we still love sharing Christmas Cards. I still send out between 40-50 a year! For my relatives I always put a short typewritten note of what has been going on. My mom has always told me how much her brother and sisters have enjoyed my notes over the years. For friends, I hand write notes to catch up and usually include a picture of the kids/dog/etc!

No, because I DO NOT CELEBRATE Christmas. I used to send New Year's cards, but now that it is easier to stay in touch with far-flung friends using technology, physical cards do not seem necessary. Plus I feel guilty about using all of that paper unnecessarily.

I do miss designing and creating the cards though.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-ch, merengue, reggaetn.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzn, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba

Do you send Christmas cards and if so do you hand write them or is it all done by computer? not many send them anymore I just love sending hand written messages and receiving them.
