    Bunny - if you go to the Oasis for Parents thread there's a whole section on sending kids to college. I'll go look for it and pull it up. There are a lot of good suggestions and support.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Share your good news

    I have news that still shock me when I type it. Me and Mr. Fatale bought a house!
    We found this house in late June and were the only ones to make an offer, but the sellers wanted to keep it on the market a little longer to see if anyone would out-bid us. Well, they finally caved . So we bought a house. The papers' been signed, the deposit is in and the survey of the house went well.

    It is situated right outside a village of 5000 people, on its own. It's not far out, but we still have no neighbours. It's up on a hill so the view from there is amazing (I can see the water tower in the village I grew up in - 15 miles away). On our back side we have a big forest which is a nature reserve that has trails for running as well. It's just such a beautiful house in a beautiful location that I still can't believe I'm going to live there. We'll be moving there in late November, so it's a bit more of a wait. But I'm so excited over it!

    Wow, femme - that's magnificent! Sounds like a beautiful location. I live on the border of a nature preserve with trails and use them a lot. Congratulations!
    Count your blessings!

    Oh femme that sounds amazing! Can I come live in the backyard??!! I love remote areas where there aren't a lot of people, it's so peaceful.

    My good news is my step daughter made a friend at school yesterday! Now she wants to go to school and things are looking up!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    femme Congratulations!! The house and area sound wonderful. And you got it for the price you set, that's double wonderful.

    BugGood friends is one of the biggest reasons kids want to go to school. Good for your step-daughter.


    My good news is I got a new desk at work. It's bigger and has more drawer space. I also rearranged my office to make it more practical, it makes my job seem so much easier now that everything is where I want it.
