I’m being a total copy cat and doing a scrabble board for our family like Gail did for her folks… it turned out very cute (If I do say so myself!).
I used my maiden name, married name, all our first names, all the places we have lived since being married as well as a choice few words that will mean something to us (GeeGeeGee Baby Baby Baby!) . Anyway, I finally got it all glued down and ready to go to the framers and low and behold, what shows up on the doorstep, but a coupon for Michaels for 50% off framing with a bonus 25% off as well – score!! Last night I get it in the car – remember the coupon – make it to Michaels – get into the store – am waiting for the final price… gazing at it lovingly… then note that I spelled my own freaking maiden name WRONG. I’m missing the “Y”. REALLY???
Ok there are a lot of things that make sense to me, but doing this? Sigh. Der!!! So, I tell the lady what a dork I am – but she lets me finish the order and explains it will take a day or two to get the ordered supplies in, so I can take it home, “fix” it and bring it back. Sigh.
I get home and there is NO “Y” to be found – anywhere. There are two in the game, one on the board and one MISSING. ACK!!
Oh, well, my maiden name is now finished with a “blank” instead of a “Y”
