I've taken care of plenty of paperwork over the past several days. It would be more impressive if some of these items hadn't been on my list for months, but here goes:
- I ordered the few new school books we'll need this year, for science, writing, and Latin. We've homeschooled long enough to have a stockpile of materials, making our yearly investment smaller as time goes by.
- I registered Marianna for Irish dance (still need to order hard shoes). I sent emails trying to find out why Joe's orchestra registration check hasn't been cashed (more follow up required). I still need to register for CCD (we use our parish's "home taught" option).
- I dropped off the paperwork needed to order papal blessings for my parents' and in-laws' 50th wedding anniversaries. This is usually done through your parish or diocesan office and (I've been told) takes about 3 months. I'm not spilling secrets by writing here; my in-laws don't have internet access and my parents already know.
