No, no Census stuff today, work still in progress anyway.
Along with graduation, son got cards from friends, family and mentors, congratulating him on his graduation and in some cards there was also a check. And while I had to push and sometimes threaten, son did create and mail out, thank notes to all from who he got $$$ from.
This week, his mother happens to be going through the pile of cards I told son he should have put away long ago, with the 30 questions on who sent it, when it was received and what was in it. It got very annoying especially when she said she wants to know so she can thank the senders.
She can thank?!!! First, son has taken care of the 'thank you's'. Second, Japanese cultural baggage aside, at 19, its high time for son to step up and handle this sort of stuff, and deal with the consequences if he doesn't.
Hell, what's his mother going to do, keep on acting as son's proxy when he's 35?
There are times when I just want to scream.
