#MicroblogMondays: Adventures in shower invitations
I haven't received many e-vites before this, and it took me forever to figure out how to RSVP. It didn't help that the information was in white type on a pale grey background, making it harder to see.
Then I went to look at the gift registries. The mom-to-be is registered in two places -- the behemoth that is You-Know-Whats-R-Us, and an online boutique. The registry at YKWRUs had only 11 items to choose from -- and, even though it was only mid-morning, three were already spoken for (and two cost more money than I was prepared to spend). Went to look at the online boutique -- and I could not for the life of me find her registry there. In fact, I think I wound up opening my own registry, lol. It later turned out that she was registered at a entirely different boutique after all.
Whatever. At any rate, not being able to figure this technical stuff out was making me feel old and out of touch, and even grumpier than I usually am over receiving a baby shower invitation. Until dh told me I was sounding like my mother, lol. That shut me up.
Anyway, we scooted over to YKWRUs after lunch and I scooped up the item I had been eyeing on the registry. Done! And now I don't have to think about it until the shower comes.
Sometimes getting older (& losing your job/being retired and having nothing better to do that afternoon) has its advantages. ;)
