March is over. Yeah. So, I am going to get the quilting done on my special dog quilt for my one monthly goalmy one monthly goal. I have started, but have a long way to go. My intent is to have it completely done, binding and all. I decided that I would do an all over dog bone pattern. So far, it is going OK. I don’t hate it.
I have multiple projects going, so I am hoping to get a few things done.
So, in my March month of hell, there was a very bright note. My 13-year-old eighth grader passed her entrance tests to college and actually gets to start this summer. Helping her prepare and running to the testing center, was one of the many things that sucked up my time. I am very proud of her. I would like to take all the credit for her smartness, but I can only take full credit for her smart a$$ness.
Wonderful thing here in Ohio, kids who can pass the tests can get up to 2 years of college credit totally free, including books. If all goes well, she can start college after high school as a junior. Also, her college classes count as her high school classes, so she is not doing double work. I might have enough money to fund those last two years. She does not understand how important it is, but I was fortunate to leave college without any loans (thanks Mom and Dad). At the time, I did not realize the importance, but there are people my age still paying back college loans. Yikes! I don’t want that for my daughter.
