It's Friday!!

Yep it is Friday night!  I am so happy for the weekend to be here.  This week was a rough one and I am looking forward to relaxing tonight.  Jeremy is on his way with Aiden and we are going to the camper to stay the night. 

The visit to Aquanis was awesome.  It is a private college so it is quite pricey.  It is over 26,000 a year to go there.  They have great programs for the students there.  They are able to study abroad at no extra cost for a certain amount of time.  They also have a low teacher to student ratio.  Much lower than one of the larger universities would be.  John still wants to check out Eastern and if he hears from UofM or State I am going to be in trouble cuz I know that is what he will want.  That will all depend on how well he does this year running.  Josh is right up there to and is training really hard this summer so he can get up there with John and be offered more also.  Aquanis offered us 18,000 in finincial aid/scholarship money.  That is alot.  That means that I would only have to pay 8000 a year plus books.  Room and board is included in that amount along with 18 meals a week or something like that.  I was a little stunned that they offered that much.  Mark was very happy with it!  LOL

I have an appointment with my Dr. on Monday.  I guess I will decide what I am going to do after I talk to her.  If surgery is something that she thinks I really need to do then I am going to do it and I think I am going to have it done as soon as possible and get it over with.  I have some things at work that I would need to take care of before I left and I would have to train someone to cover for me while I was gone.  This promotion sure makes it harder for me to leave without worrying about what will be going on there while I am gone!!  I worry about what  a mess things will be in when I go back.  When I took over the postion the department was horrilby messed up and I am just starting to get things to where they run smoothly, so it scares me! Oh well it will still be there when I get back no matter what!  Right?

Tomorrow is Jeremy's 21st birthday.  Tonight at midnight he will be 21!  That is just amazing to me.  I now have two children who are 21 or older.  Two children who are of legal drinking age.  That is actually scary.  I know he is going out tonight and tomorrow.  Mark and I are meeting him at a bar by where I used to live.  Not sure which one yet since he is not sure which one they will be at when we are ready to go!  I guess there is going to be alot of bar hopping going on.  Anyone want to join us feel free!!!  Robbie's birthday was Wednesday.  He turned 19.  That was very hard for me to not be with him on his birthday.  He seems to really like living where he is at though.  I still want him to come home.  I think he needs  his Mom still, he just doesn't know it yet!  LOL  I hate not being needed, can you tell?

I guess I better get off here and get my clothes packed for the night.  The campfire is going, Mark just called to tell me and we are going to the little bar/restrant they have at the campground for dinner.  And I am hungry so that sounds good.  Have a good night.

oh I hope he doesn't hear from MSU or U of M - I hear so many lower classmen saying that the big lecture halls are just awful.  If he has a chance to go to Aquinas he should really jump at it.  It is such a great school.  Like you said, class sizes are small and it's more like being in high school (only with twice the workload and no curfew - LOL)  Hope camping was great!

That Aquanis situation sounds pretty tempting. I hope the scholarship becomes a very real possibility! Good luck with that. Have a great camping weekend :)

Dang, the price of that college is almost as much as going to USC.  That is quite an investment for the future and to pay those kind of prices one has to be serious and have to follow through til the end.  Hope you are having a nice weekend.
