On the card swap, my thinking was for everyone to send their cards to the people on their side of the Atlantic, but send the cards to go across to me. Since I'll be sending a card to everyone anyway, that won't be that much extra for me. So, if we have nine people, everyone would make eight cards and would mail all the cards themselves except for the ones that go overseas.
And, yes, it's the middle of the night here. I woke up, took out the dog, and thought I'd check in.
