Good news for all you hyper-emotional freaks teetering on the edge of a breakdown: WalMart will do a lot to make sure you don't do anything drastic.
Apparently their system was down when I submitted my photos the other day, and they floated around in cyberspace for a day before WalMart finally got them. Once they got them, their printer was broken down (what are the odds? do you sense a theme in my life?). They've called several times to update me (I think they are making sure I'm not in a warm bath contemplating my Venus Divine), and the last gentleman to call informed me that he had gone to the trouble of using their Kodak copy machine thing to make a CD of my photos and to print them off, and that of course I would also be getting my prints on the higher quality one-hour paper as soon as the machine is fixed. He just wanted to be sure I didn't think my baby's photos were lost. Oh, and all of the workers who have called have told me how cute Julio is, as if I didn't already know he was the most gorgeous baby in the world.
With all the trouble these poor photo lab people have been through, I haven't had the heart to tell them I got my pictures printed at Walgreens yesterday.
