My Moms cousin is coming from Scotland on Saturday. I am going to the airport to meet her. I dont know what she looks like. She has my blog URL so I am putting this here for her benefit. So Eileen, if you read this, you will know to look for this sign! Heidi and I made this a couple of days ago and I have since realized that I miss-spelled your name. Thats just typical of me lately.
My sons girlfriend is called Sharon. It took me a couple of months to remember if she was actually Sharon or Shannon. I have also been spelling Sharon with two R's. Last night David had her over for her birthday/two month anniversary of them 'going out'. I picked up a cake and was proud to remember her name was Sharon as I had the lady in the cake shop put Happy Birthday Sharron (with two R's) on the cake. I got her a card and unwittingly wrote Shannon in the card, sealed the envelope and wrote Sharron on the envelope. She got her card and politely thanked me for it.
We had ordered in chinese food and ate that up. Later I brought out the lovely pink strawberry mousse birthday cake, with a pink candle in the middle. When I set it in front of her. She and David burst out laughing. "What?" I asked.
Thats when they pointed out the incorrect spelling of Sharons name on the cake and showed me the card with two wrong names on it!
I think someone should make me a poster that says "SUSAN, Welcome to Alzhiemers!"
