My husband, Paul, and I teamed up in preparation for the holidays. He addressed the Christmas cards and I wrote the notes. At last, after several hours of writing and stuffing envelopes, we were off to the post office to mail the thick bundle that I had secured with a rubber band. As Paul drove to the outdoor mailbox, he suggested that I remove the rubber band with the intention of easier access through the slot. So, in teamwork fashion, I handed him several cards at a time and he deposited them. When I gave him the last ten or more cards, I was horrified to notice the flaps of the envelopes were unsealed.
