Whew, this has been a tough couple of weeks. Both in a bad and a good way. The bad: every single person in my family has had some sort of version of ebola or the bird flu or the plague or some as yet unidentified exotic disease. There's a chance we're recovering, but I would have thought that any time in the last 3 weeks. The good is equally agonizing: Camille got into both of the schools we applied to. And we had to decide.
We ended up going with the more academic prep school even though we love the more community based, teach to the heart as much as the head other school. In my shallow mind, the deciding factors were the tennis courts and swimming pool; at least, that's what I'm telling people.
So now I have to reconcile my need for a new reefing system with a $17,800 tuition. But I have a solution for that. See that link to the right that says "Polka Dot Racing Retail"? Well, I priced in a handy $0.01 profit on each t-shirt. I'm not asking my loyal score of readers to pay for my daughter's education through t-shirts and thong underwear....just to pay for my reefing system. I only need you guys to buy about 17,000 items to be able to afford it. Not too much to ask for, is it?
