The second week for the challenge is now over. I skipped mailing on Friday and Saturday and made it up on other days.
It was a big week for Valentines:
- A birthday card for Kimmie’s niece.
- Valentine’s cards for my two best friends.
- Valentine’s postcards to Beth Cato, my parents, and my brother-in-law’s family.
- A postcard to the station manager of the main post office.
- A letter to a fellow Lettermo participant in Germany
Incoming mail is still slow but more than before. My first item was a letter from Suey of It’s All About Books. I received a funny Valentine from Beth Cato. Not surprisingly, a package arrived from my mother withÂ Valentine’s Day goodies for me and my husband. And today I found a pleasantly large envelope from Rhonda Parrish.Â It was a cute notecard with some Niteblade postcards which I will be sending to other Lettermo participants.
Something new this yearÂ for Lettermo are the enhancements to the site. It keeps track of the # of items you mailed, and gives you an achievement score for different things (finding a new mailbox, sending a valentine/birthday wishes, mailing to an international address, etc.). As of today I have mailed 13 items, received 8 achievements and have an achievement score of 42. Some people have mailed out 159 items. That seems unbelievable!
Heather B. Armstrong made a timely post about teaching her daughter how to address an envelopeÂ I thought I’d share with you today.
Would you like me to send you something in the mail? Let me know and I’ll send you an email to get your address.
