Holiday greetings from South Dakota

I'm anal-retentive enough to be deeply concerned.
I've not sent out Christmas cards yet.
Hell, I haven't even bought any.
Usually, I do the picture card. Pick the best shot from a year of doing crazy shite and throw it up on a card and call it good (even if the people "get it" or not).
Trouble is,I didn't really take a lot of pictures. I didn't really have a vacation this year, unless you count taking down one house, loading it in a truck, hoping in your truck with your dogs and driving 1,800 miles to the Midwest and unloading it all in a new space and build a new life where you know almost no one.
(And I don't.)
Besides, any picture from California wouldn't be an honest representation of my life now.
It's a dilemma.
And then there's the whole idea of sending out the dreaded "Dear friends" letter. My closest circle knows the reasons for the move, but go out a bit further and people will get a Christmas card from me in SoDak and be scratching their heads in wonderment.
I need to explain a few things for a few people.
And time's a wasting.

I admire your way of moving home! I haven't written any Christmas cards yet either.
