Sunday Salon: October 5, 2008

My Sundays are normally uneventful. I lounge in my PJ’s, do little side projects and READ! The weather this weekend has been gloomy and rainy too. Perfect weather for the types of activities I just mentioned. However, today we are celebrating kidlet #2’s birthday so we are heading to Sky City!

I have to be honest with you, getting the RSVPs for this event has been a bit of a challenge. Folks do not know common etiquette nor do they care to learn it. When a birthday venue charges by the head, I would never just assume that it would be okay to bring my child plus his/her 4 siblings. I have been dealing all week with these kinds of issues. Talk to me about your situation. I’m an easy person to talk to, but don’t leave a message saying 6 are coming when two were invited.

OK. Enough of that.

Today is also the day that my son auditions for the 3rd time for The Music Man. It’s down to 5 boys. Break a leg Kidlet #1!

After all this is said and done, I will ask my husband to get the Halloween stuff down from the attic (again). Third time’s the charm, right?

  1. Etiquette has gone out the window. We had a Cinco de Mayo party and asked for regrets only. Only 2 couples didn’t show who hadn’t regretted. (One of them did send a note explaining what happened after the fact.) We did however, have a couple, who were not invited, show up with their 2 small children. It was not a party for children.

  2. Oh, Ti, I’m so glad I’m not the only one who has to ask my husband to do stuff multiple times.I usually try to RSVP just because I know how nice it is as the host to have an accurate idea of how many people are going to show up.Have a fun day and good luck to Kidlet #1 with the audition!

  3. 1. I’m jealous of the PJs all day thing; I haven’t done that for years … unless I’ve been sick, in which case I’m probably not in the mood for reading!2. RSVPs … it’s frustrating! Equally frustrating are thos who indicate they will be there, then no-show and you’re stuck paying the party venue. I call if I don’t get a response by the RSVP date; that helps some.3. How did the auditions go?4. Our Halloween decorations came up from the basement yesterday. I think the younger two will change their minds *daily* (maybe *hourly*) about costumes right up until it’s time to trick-or-treat!
