And suddenly there is no mail.

Tuesday, I received 9 postcards.
Wednesday, I received 1 postcard.
Today, I received no postcards.

I'm starting to feel like each day is a game. Hopefully tomorrow I will have mail!

My order arrived today. Super stoked on all my new pretty postcards!

Yay! Mail!

Today, I received a ton of mail! Yay! I had 9 postcards in my mailbox. Finally!

The 9 postcards breakdown like this:

Thank you postcard = 1 (original official postcard was lost so I sent a second)
Pen friends = 3
Officials = 5

Some of the officials took forever to get here and the users did send them right after they got my address. One from Lithuania took 75 days to get to me! It was postmarked on November 11th, 2010. Crazy. I wonder why it got held up for so long, but at least it got to me!

I'm glad I finally got some mail. Hopefully this trend continues.

Slow mail.

It seems that mail has been unusually slow during and even after the holidays. I've barely gotten any mail the last two days - no official or pen friend postcards. Also, it seems to be taking my official postcards an awful long time to reach their destinations. I love writing out postcards so this makes me sad. I sent a few messages on the forum out to some people that want postcard pals. Then I logged into my second account. I haven't used it for months because I really only want to concentrate on my main official account. I figured it would be ok to send a few postcards out to people from that account. I have it set on inactive so I won't receive postcards on that account. I just wanted to send some postcards out today! I actually drove them up to the drive up mailbox at the post office on my way to pick my husband up at the ferry. I hope they make people smile. It made me feel better. I hope that when I wake up tomorrow some of my official postcards have been registered so I can send more.

Oh and I bought more postcards from today and my order that I placed last week showed up today. I'm very pleased with my new postcards. What can I say? I'm addicted.
