May 25, 2010: Mariah’s Graduation Invitations

So, I got an invitation from Mariah for her graduation. It was handmade (which I guess is always the best – something from the heart). Joey and I both were excited to see that we were invited. I don’t take anything for granted in life.

Then it dawned on me that the reason the invitation was hand written was because someone didn’t order invitations. Now, I am not going to play the blame game (this current administration in the White House does that and does it well) but I am going to have to say that someone dropped the ball here (and I am not talking about the recent dodge ball game – although there were plenty of dropped balls at that time, as well – but I digress).

Anyway – here is the wonderful invitation. Click image for full size.




I would like my response posted on your blog in response to your pointing fingers about the invitations.

First of all, I am one of the busiest people in the world.  If you don’t agree then all you have to look at is my family and my house to see that.  Ok…so Mariah did ask me about the invitations about a month ago…and I told her at that time…that we didn’t need invitations because everyone in the family already knows when the graduation is.  Invitations are very expensive and take a whole lot of time to write out (see sentence one) I told everyone in the family about the graduation…time, place etc.  (I left out the money part though)…though this is very nice of everyone to help with the car situation.

Tommy has already given me the 3rd degree about the invitations.  So in the mist of everyone getting onto me about them all I have to say is a little help goes a long way with me.  I also told Tommy that when we have our baby and they graduate that I will indeed buy graduation invitations ok ….so leave me alone. He just gave me one of those looks that I know very well….
