    I'm excited for her (and you)! My grandson had all those classes and he doesn't have to take some of the college courses that he would have otherwise. I'm sure it's the same where she will go. NC or SC? Can't remember. My nephew teaches at Furman, if that's spelled right.

    I applied for a job at Furman, but haven't heard anything yet.

    It wasn't that they didn't think she was smart enough its just that they only take so many kids and the other schools that we talked too only had a few openings and literally dozens of applicants, so we were told it was too late in the year to apply and get her in for this school year as they wouldn't have any openings. But they did.

    Now if the job situation would just go as smoothly for hubby and then me.

    Great news!! Our granddaughter was born today or should I say yesterday (8-10). Natalie Joann, 8 lbs. 2 oz. Mother and baby are doing well. Good news, grandma, me, gets to keep the other 3 until Mom comes home or Dad is home enough to get them wherever it is they need to go. It's going to be a fun weekend.

    My little good news is my BIL may put in a new light fixture in my bathroom this weekend. I've been waiting for over a year. The light bars for the old one presently there are no longer made, and by winter, I might not have light. If the weather is good, however, he's going to the lake. I'm praying for rain on Sunday.

    Ohhh, ok then! Well that just proves she's even smarter than I thought to nab one of those spots! Yay!

    What's Furman?

    And Gracie, congrats on your new grandbaby and getting to spoil the other children this weekend! I'm sure a good time will be had by all!

    Congrats Gracie!!

    Being a grandma rocks, huh?!!! We've got the 2 girls already and this next one is a boy.

    I just love coming in here and reading all the good news y'all talk about. It makes me all warm and fuzzy. Or maybe it's just the weather. Either way....
