An Attempt at a Brief Post

I just received my son-the-senior's announcements today. His name is spelled wrong on everything. I actually have a record that I entered it correctly when I ordered them, so I've emailed and left a message with the company to see if there is anything to be done. He is resistant to all the usual traditions, and was adamantly against even sending announcements but at the last minute he changed his mind. So, we ordered late in the first place. They should have been sent out last week. Now it looks like he may get his original wish. No, that's negative. I won't get frustrated. I don't have to follow society's rules. So what if they're late. Okay, deep breath. I will run to Staples in the morning to see if maybe some print-your-own business cards might fit in the slot. Uff. I guess now I have time to talk him into a portrait since I can't send the announcements right this minute. This is not the worst thing that can happen, and I should look at it as an opportunity to put all this "stuff" I do to work and come up with a solution rather than getting frustrated. Okay, I can do that.

  3. As my Mom always says, in situations like this, "What difference will it make two years from now?" Still, that is frustrating. Hope it all works out! :)
