Yesterday, I took D2 back to college in Massachusetts. She wanted to go away for spring break, but did not have enough money. I could not cover the cost of a plane ticket and D2 made me this offer. I would not have to pick her up from school and that would save me gas and ferry fare. So we agreed that I would give her $100 towards a plane ticket and my mom and sister would chip in and give her the rest. That sounds like a good deal to me. : ) D3, on the other hand, is not a saver and I had to help her with her tuition this semester. Can it be that any time I have a 3 paycheck month, an expense pops arises to gobble it all up!? When she switched colleges, she lost a $2000 scholarship. No guarantee she will get any scholarship next year and this has led her to apply to be an RA at her college. By working as an RA, it would cover the cost of her housing. She just has to wait and see if she gets the job. D2 and D1 will be home next weeek and I have to set up doctor's appt for both girls. Let's hope I can fit them all in while they are home. Crankie and I are waiting to hear from our accountant to see if she has finalized the paperwork for our amended return. I really hope she has it done and that we can move forward with this and lower the amount we owe.
