The rest of this post was a lot to take in, but if you don’t have Word, try OpenOffice. It’s free and is basically the EXACT same thing as Microsoft Word. I liked it because I could transfer all of my downloaded fonts onto it for wedding stuff. It has a Word Document, a spreadsheet, a “drawing” feature which is identical to MicrosoftPublisher.

MrsWinTraining2014:  I’m sorry Saturday was a bust. If it’s any consolation, I had ZERO fun putting together my registry at Macy’s.

So sorry to hear you are having such a rough time.

I totally suggest doing your registry online with walmart, though. We did one of ours for walmart online and it was great.. plus we can checkup on it anytime we want and replace out of stock items. [Also, there is more variety at walmart.com].

As for the labels and things, I have no advice.. I have honestly used paint for everything.. I don’t know how to make labels and things on word.. I only use quickbooks and office.

I think we all have days where everything seems to go wrong. It’ll get better.

I would file a complaint against that rude woman, and possibly consider registering somewhere else if you’ll have to deal with that Wal-Mart repeatedly.

I’m about 6 months out and have had a few meltdowns! Don’t worry, it’s all part of the process. I had meltdowns over chiavari chairs, table cloths and colors. I find the more frivolous the detail, the more I get worked up over it. Lol!!! One day at a time 🙂

If I were you I’d call the manager and ask for them to put up a sign or something so no one else wastes their time like that, you think they would’ve done that already… unless of course you could’ve done it in store but that girl didn’t want to be bothered with the scanner. If it makes you feel any better I had a mini breakdown over a pretzel/bagel today. I picked up a pretzel bagel (requested nothing be done to it) after my awful doctor’s appointment where he said the marks on the back of my arm that just appeared will be there for life… I drove 2 hours to get home before I sunk  into the couch to eat this pretzelly goodness and it was a plain bagel… a big bland plain bagel.

MrsWinTraining2014:  I’ve started my very few and relatively simple DIY projects…. I’m not particularly patient (or crafty lol!) so I expect a few more freak outs in the coming weeks…

MrsWinTraining2014:  You need to take a day off, maybe a week, from all the admin side of the planning. If you feel you can’t because of time constraints then stick to the fun creative tasks and maybe ask family for help esp for the labels. Don’t suffer on your own.
