    6. Address envelopes for announcements.

    Mail me your envelopes and a list — I'll address them for you. I'm a geek… I like doing this sort of thing. I'll bring them by your house on the 24th. (I'll be in town for 2 appointments). But I can't stay because #1, you'll be in labor ;), and #2 Tori has a basketball game at 4:15.

    DO IT!! I'm serious!! Ü
