  1. When Invitations Become Money Grabs

    by , 01-05-2009 at 01:01 PM (C@rol's Blog)
    In the last year, I’ve noticed a trend among the invitations I’ve been receiving in my mailbox: Rather than being simple invitations to celebrations, they are becoming thinly disguised money grabs. I have been invited to weddings and told (not requested, but told) to give cash. I’ve been invited to a “going away to college shower” right on the heels of the high school graduation party where I gave the graduate a check that I assumed would be used for college expenses.

    That's the way I feel right now. I feel gross and tired and still sick from the ear infection. One bright spot in all this gross feeling is that there's less cotton-ball-in-the-ear time today! Now all I have is a plugged ear that I'm leaving well enough alone...

    but onto the bulk of what this blog entry is about!

    Today was the last day of winter vacation for everyone. DH is dreading tomorrow because he's slept past 5:30am for the last two weeks. I'm looking ...
