8 Days Until Christmas……Do As I Say, Not As I Do

I have to confess…..I have not been following my advice very closely.  I have been telling myself in the last few days that I really should be listening to my advice a bit better.  So I went to print off my address labels to send out my Christmas cards, and the addresses weren’t there.  You see, I had forgotten that my Outlook had crashed earlier in the summer.  So all my contacts were either missing or had huge gaping holes in them.  But my super hero husband to the rescue had saved our mailing list from 2009 on our external hard drive (what would I do without that man?).  So I made the changes to that list and went to bed.  I woke up the next morning, my husband printed the labels and much to my dismay, I had forgot to save my changes before I went to bed.  Back to the drawing board!  So something that should have taken my minutes ended up taking me many hours of needless work.  Lesson learned, to sync my blackberry on a weekly basis!

Needless to say this has not been my only piece of advice that I have forgotten to take….there are others, but I don’t want to overwhelm you with my issues all at once!  Well I am off to buy some wrapping paper as I thought I had more than I really did.
