Registry Angst

Is anyone else having registry angst? T and I registered, and then I started having economy guilt about having registered. I mean, people are losing their jobs…why do I really need new tea towels?? But I also feel like people might give gifts anyway, and I know I personally love registries, because I know I’m giving the couple something they definitely want. 

So I took an axe to the registry, and cut the most expensive stuff. But I still feel a little bit of registry angst. Anyone else sharing this boat with me?

  3. […] Remember when we took the china off our registry because we felt like it was a frivolous thing to ask our guests for in this economy? And took the flatware off for the same reason? Well, T’s aunts decided that we should have china and flatware, so one aunt and uncle, along with their children and respective spouses, went in together and bought us an entire set of flatware. Another aunt, uncle, children and respective spouses also went in and actually bought us an entire 58-piece set of china. I cry at everything, but I was so shocked and touched that honestly, I couldn’t really react at all! I mean, I think I did, but it definitely had a hard time sinking in. The china we got was, unbelievably enough, actually a pattern that we had looked at initially, Mikasa Parchment: […]
