College Night

   Soooooooo, tonight was College Night at my Daughter's High School. This is where tons of different college representatives set up an information area for the kids and their parents.

At 6:30 the corridor was already full with parents and their kids. We were happy to be there and curious at what these Colleges had to offer.


All of the representatives were helpful and friendly and full of enthusiasm. We gladly walked around to all the schools informational areas and asked questions. We were pleased with what we saw.


We have gotten over the "tuition shock" and have accepted that it's going to be rough, but with scholarships ( please God) and hard work and determination we can get through those years and help our daughter become a College graduate.


Yessiree, We are going to be okey dokey



At the end of the college night, my daughter said " Sheeze, it looks like I'll have to get my Masters to work as an O.T. (Occupational Therapist) Thats 6 years altogether....If I added just a few more years to that... I could be a doctor....

                  I might as well become a Doctor...."  

Medical School?

Four Year College Will Cost More Than my HOUSE!

             My Daughter came home the other day and had an envelope in her hand. It seems that she qualifies to be in the National Honors society. Needless to say Her Dad and I are thrilled.

She also had in her possession a booklet of all the colleges that will be represented on College night at her school really soon.

I flipped through the book and this is what I saw under Tuition and room and board for the 
2014-15 year 

Tuition & Fees (all students):$40,670
Room & Board (freshmen)*:$14,490
                         $55,160     FOR ONE YEAR! 

What The Frig!!! This is not even an Ivy league school!....ok, now I have to check the tuition of other Schools...I'll be right back.

Talk amongst yourselves...

  Here's a topic...The Partridge Family was neither Partridges or a family...discuss.

Ok, I'm back.

           Her Dad and I have a plan


                        Hey, I didn't say it was a good plan....

           Well Hello out there in Blogger world....How the heck have you been? I have missed being here so much. Now....last time I wrote about my hubby's car dying and how it cost us a pretty penny to get it fixed. I felt a giant sigh of relief when we finally picked the car up.

well, that feeling lasted about two weeks....

           because look what happened.....
Yup,...I was involved in a car accident. I was traveling north and a young lady driving a caravan was traveling south when (for whatever reason) she wasn't going to yield to traffic going in the opposite direction and she tried to make a quick left. Maybe it was lack of experience...I don't know...all I know is that I tried to avoid her and boom...
I am grateful.
Because no one was hurt. My daughter was in the car with me. and you know what?
even though the airbags deployed, our faces never hit them. Our seatbelts were enough to stop us.
My friend said that maybe God put me there at that very moment because he knew another driver might have driven faster and therefore someone might have been hurt...or worse.
So...ok my car is totaled. They can't repair it. The young lady's car has a nice big dent.
Most importantly...
 my daughter, the young lady and I left without a scratch on us.
Thank You God!

Wow...it's soooo true...."when it rains, it pours " We are really short on cash....so of course the computer dies (I'm currently typing on my little kindle) and it's going to cost 250.00 to fix it. I Then get a call from my husband and he tells me his car broke down and its going to cost 400.00 to get it towed....FOUR STINKIN' HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!!! Now, with the added cost of whatever the heck is wrong with it I say we are in for at least a thousand this week. With a maxed out credict card and no money in the bank My husband took it in stride...he puts it all in Gods hands and onward we go. So hows your week going so far? Please...I need some good news! :o)
