**This has been sitting in my drafts folder for weeks now. My apologies for getting it out so late. Another update comes tonight!
One of the biggest issues I’ve been dealing with when it comes to this goal is who gets a postcard when. I think it’s going to hit a point where I write down everyone’s name and throw them into a hat. The other thing is that I don’t have everyone’s address yet and so I’m working on collecting those.
Day 3′s postcard went out to my best friend of a bajillion years, Sarah. Incidentally, she posted a comment on my Facebook wall that eerily reflects what I wrote on the postcard. And I’m pretty sure she hasn’t received it yet. That’s what happens when you have a friend who knows you that well I guess. Or she’s psychic in which case she and I need to have a serious talk. I want to know my future and if she’s been holding out, I’ll be mad.
Day 4 went out to my aunt, Micaela. It was Easter Sunday, but it would also have been my grandmother’s 104th birthday. I figured she was the best bet to get this date’s card. The interesting, crazy, karmic thing that had happened though far exceeded what I imagined could happen that day.
On my last post about day 2, my friend Katie left a link for an iReport that she thought I could totally participate in. I’d make a video talking about my idea. Instead, I thought about a letter from my sister that I’ve kept all these years. She sent it when I was 9 and I thought that would be the best idea for the iReport. But the thing was, I found it with a bunch of different cards and letters. And I found a lot of cards I kept from my grandmother. It was quite a moment when I found them.
Anyway, day 5 went out to my parents with this epically appropriate card:
And day 6 went to my friend Becky since I KNEW she’d appreciate this card.
Coming up tonight: the lack of good postcards anywhere.
