The Price To Pay For An Education...

"Danielle's first international incident is going to be stalking."

Danielle agreed with my husband on this.  She has already decided which British personalities she wants to track down.  Her father and Rachel were giving her suggestions yesterday as they discussed her pending sojourn into the wilds of London, England.  You see, Danielle has been accepted to attend her first choice of schools.  To say she has been doing the Happy Snoopy Dance is a gross understatement!  

Although Nina has also been accepted into a few schools, we are awaiting the response from her first choice.  We are keeping our fingers and toes crossed.  (of course this makes walking or picking up a coffee cup a little difficult but we will persevere in hopes of a good outcome.)

So to Danielle and Nina, a little piece of wisdom to pass on...
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."   ~ Mark Twain
Meanwhile, if everybody could pray for us to win the lottery, it would be most appreciated...

QOTD:  "There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other wings." ~ Hodding Carter


  1. If you decide coffe cup picking up is too difficult, please remember to let to cool before you resort to straws. That plasticy taste is not a nice thing first crack of morning.

    If I were to stalk a Brit, it would be Ricky Gervais, or maybe Eddie Izzard. They'd never take me seriously though. However, it would be cool to be able to claim "Eddie Izzard laughed at me."
    Misinterpretation is my friend.

  2. "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did"

    That's some of the BEST ADVICE I've heard in a while!

  3. Oh! And I agree with LeeAnn! If I were to stalk a Brit, it would be Ricky Gervais too! Ahahhahahaha

  4. Good for her...and congratulations!

    But I would so be a Royal stalker. The Queen has the be-all to end-all in bling.

  5. Twenty years from now, if they're disappointed by what they've done vs what they've threatened to do to get you to cross your toes to carry coffee awkwardly across the room, tell them to invent a time machine and try again -- Chew-Chew Twain

    Congrats to your college-bound; the lottery win may just cover the books...

  6. Leeann - Ricky Gervais... really?

    Meleah - You too? (about Ricky Gervais) I really wish that had been the advice my own parents had given me.

    Mrs. Who - I'm with you. (Although I'm sure they brush their teeth and put on their pants the same way the rest of the world does... but we won't break the magical moment by bringing that up.)

    Skunkfeathers - yeah, the lottery doesn't stretch as far as it used to.

    I'll be sure to tell Danielle that we all congratulate her on her wonderful achievement. Some day I'm going to have to post the essay she wrote that got her into this university. It was amazing.
