our children possess this amazing ability to sense when their parents are finally, momentarily stress free! one collective sigh of relief and they feel the need to pounce! no stress free moments for their parents! remember my post about bennett finally making a final decision on a college? well he must have read that post and decided to pounce. his status is back to being an undecided. i knew i shouldn't have purchased that citadel mug! he is now strongly leaning towards clemson university. which is a fabulous school! but we are not convinced it is a perfect for for him.
back on our knees we go! i am not buying another collegiate mug until move in day! to be continued...
back online i go. college paperwork, forms, questionnaires, deposits... it is exhausting. in the middle of a clemson form, anna katherine calls from track practice. "we are done. an hour early." i grabbed my purse and flew out the door. she would already have to wait thirty minutes. a few miles later my gas light turns on. i realize i left my wallet on my desk. jeff is on the other side of the state and i just cleaned out my car. anna katherine and i scraped together $3.50. we were 30 miles from home and my car gets (on a good day) 15 miles per gallon. i laughed while counting my money for the cashier. i was so grateful for this handful of coins! we made it home on a fume and a prayer!
