Knock, knock.....

Greetings friends and family,

It's that time of year again. It's the time of year when I try and hunt down all the addresses that I have managed to write on the back of envelopes and in notebooks. I am getting better at this every year. Last year I even managed to rip the addresses out of the Christmas card envelopes but then I let them sit on a pile near the computer for a few months. I only put a few of them put in the computer before they scattered in the wind and around the house.

Every year the thing that trips me up for Christmas cards is the addressing issue. Right this very second, I still have about 12 cards in an envelope in one of the drawers of the computer desk. I can see them even as I type this. They are waiting for their addresses. This year I am determined to have my cards out by Thanksgiving!! Determined I tell you. I have baby announcements and thank you cards to send too--so it can all go in the same envelope.

So, readers. I humbly ask you all, once again for addresses. I need to announce and thank and send holiday greetings. The best part in this whole sneaky plan is that the the addresses will come via e mail so I can cut and paste them right into the address book. In fact, even if I don't put them in the address book I will still have them in E MAIL!!! Great plan, huh? I should have figured this out last year when I realized that if I e mail myself phone numbers and things I don't want to forget, then I can always find them. This is a sad, sad window into my disorganized soul.

Please send your address to me at rebeccakbingham at yahoo dot com. If you have ever commented here, send your address (unless you are philosophically opposed to mail). If you have commented here, I have read your blog and am probably still reading it--even if I don't ever comment on it. I have never done the old "please de-lurk" post, but this could be fun. Even if you haven't ever commented (MOM!!!!!) send your address.

Happy Halloween everyone. I will post pictures tomorrow........we shaved Mr. T's mohawk yesterday. It is awesome!!!

Both. I'm totally excited about picking up the twins and moving. It's the quitting of the job that's proving scariest. I've had a job since I was 12 years old, so I have no idea what it means to not work, and I have never really considered myself stay-at-home-mom material. I'm a little afraid that I'll suck and be unhappy as a SAHM, and that, by removing myself from the workforce now, I'll have trouble getting back in later. But, on the other hand, I'll now have time to hang out with the kids and write and paint and visit museums and castles (castles!) and travel...and all that time with the kids doing the things that I most love to do...that can't possibly be a bad thing, right?

No...you will be great.

You need to talk to my friend Lisa. She is the one that moved to the UK w/ two small kids. She can give you tons of support and/or advice. Being a SAHM is hard no doubt. It is hard to fight the monotony. It is hard to find other ways to establish progress in your life (beyond dishes, laundry, etc). You will do GREAT though. Be prepared for the many people to dislike americans--at least at first. Not even in a mean way, but more of a "oh, you silly clueless Americans" way. :-) You will show them. Are you going to be in the Cotswalds or B'ham? Is he with the RSC? I am totally guessing. THe reason I ask is b/c my friend that lived there, her husband did his MFS at Exeter and her husband spent time in Stratford w/ the RSC.....
