So, I had to email Little Sis' teacher anyway today to get a head count so I could buy enough stuff for the goodie bags. I mentioned that her birthday is on Wednesday, not Friday, and she replied with "OH MY GOODNESS! I'll change it on the bulletin board right away!" No harm, no foul. The situation with Big Sis' name on the homework pass still bugs me, but I'm going to guess it wasn't her teacher who did it, it may have been an aid who doesn't know her well. Everyone I know who knows her knows her by her nickname, not her full name. And there are no other kids at the school (besides her sister) with that last name, so it's not like she was confused with someone else.
So today, I went to the Post Office. Have I mentioned that our town is so small that we don't get our mail delivered to our houses? Anyway, I received my sister's Wedding Invitation in the mail today! I opened it while I was in line to mail out my rent check (they round stamp it and put it in the landlord's PO Box), and she had a custom photo stamp on the RSVP card!! Everyone in the PO loved it! I filled it out and mailed it back right then.
So, December 4, I'll be on a plane to Colorado Springs. In December. A week before my Disneyland trip. Possibly snow. Fun, right? :) Also, I think I'm the new Maid of Honor, since her best friend from Florida, who has known about this engagement since the day it happened, doesn't have the money to go. (Nope, no bitterness there!) I see my dress hanging on the door here at my grandma's house, and I have to keep reminding myself that it's not finished. HAHA. It looks HUGE! I'm going to join Weight Watchers with the hope of losing some weight before then. Of course, eating an Extra Long Chili Cheese Coney with Tots and a Vanilla Diet Dr. Pepper from Sonic didn't help. I think I'll just drive back to grandma's every Friday night to make it to the meetings on Saturday mornings. I'm just not doing great online. I also have no food in the house, so eating right is hard when all you have is frozen fries and frozen pizza and tons of sweet bread.
Oh, and don't you just love wireless internet? I brought the work laptop to grandma's tonight. I'm tapped into a neighbor's wireless. Whose? I don't know, but it's working! Whoo-hoo!
