An advance appology for a lack of posts


There may be a decrease in posts for the near future.  I have decided to continue my education!  I dropped out of college back in 1983 to raise a family and it seemed there was never a good time while the girls were small to go back.  Then it seemed like there was not enough money when they were in high school (catholic) and college to go back.  Somehow the time has come!  I am starting slow with just one course this semester.   But I am pretty excited.  I'm (re)taking French 101.  Class has CHANGED SO MUCH IN 30 YEARS!!!  
The big guy and the girls are all very supportive and happy for me.  Which helps a lot.  Also, sit down and get out the kleenex...............  Daughters number 2 &3 who have careers in their chosen fields post graduation had secretly opened and "moms college account" for me!!! 

yes, they really did this for me!  They had enough in there for this semesters 4 credit class and one for next semester too!  I am overwhelmed and excited and every good emotion you can imagine!!!!

Mare I could NOT be HAPPIER for you. I am actually tearing up at how sweet your kids are. That has to be the sweetest thing I have heard.

Big hugs to y'all So wonderful.

Thanks for warning me to get a tissue because I needed one reading this. I'm so excited for you going back to school and how absolutely lovely of your children to want to show their encouragement and appreciation for all you've done for them ... things we parents don't even consider a sacrifice. What sweet kids you've raised. It makes me want to give them noogies.

And this is a perfect example of "You get what you give." You raised some wonderful kids, Miss Mare. Be proud. I am very proud of you and know you will do fabulous! I will give you my only french phrase:

Pouilly-Fuissé s'il te plait.
