Mailbox Monday

I've noticed that quite a few bloggers have a Mailbox Monday these days. Most (if not all) of them are book reviewers, so it makes sense that they would want to share their excitement over receiving a new shipment of books to add to their review piles each Monday.

I have no aspirations to become a book reviewer, but I nevertheless have been feeling slightly left out by the Mailbox Monday phenomenon. So today, I present to you my own Mailbox Monday. Strap on your seat belt! My mailbox doesn't get much more exciting than this!

Today I received in the mail:

  • A Pyramid Collection catalog
  • An FJH Piano Teacher Catalog (even though I am not teaching piano lessons this semester)
  • A thank you note for a wedding gift
  • An introductory offer from Amsterdam Printing for a great sale on personalized envelopes! (I previously ordered some promotional pens from Amsterdam Printing and am now on their permanent mailing list. Alas, I am no more in search of personalized envelopes just now than I am for new piano instruction books.)
I must say, my mailbox wasn't a complete disappointment, since it did not include any new bills to pay! (At least today.)

Now wasn't that fun? I may make Mailbox Monday a regular post on JDP NEWS! And I know you'll be waiting with bated breath to know...will next week's mailbox surpass the excitement of this week's? Only time will tell!

Well, you can tell I'm new to the blogging world cuz yours is the first Mailbox Monday I've read! That's neat that you can teach piano lessons. I have in the past but have lost interest because there's so much to read and write!
