What am I regretting?

In one of my greater moments of stupidity, I lost track of time and got ready to serve my juror summons the week after I was supposed to.  Which leads me to the need to write an apology letter and ask for a postponement of the summons.  So I start my letter with "I deeply regret to inform you that I missed my juror summons"  I know many apology letters start this way.  But what exactly do I regret? the the fact I have bad information that I need to tell you? Or the fact I have to tell you at all?  English WTF
