WOO HOO!! YIPPEE!!
Son #1 got word today that he's OFF THE WAITING LIST for a dorm room. HE GOT ONE!!!!
I couldn't be happier! Seriously!! He wants an apartment SO BADLY that he can't even stand it. I guess an 'apartment' sounds far more grown up, huh? But, Mom wanted a dorm room. It's cheaper, it's got some security and some basic rules to follow.
And, you know what one of the BEST THINGS about the dorm is? Huh, Internets? FREE LAUNDRY!!!!!!!!!!!! Have any of you ever heard of FREE LAUNDRY in a dorm? It's a new fancy set of washers and dryers that all the boys on their floor share. All 12 of them (or however many are on a floor). And there are 4 boys to 1 bathroom. SWEET. Only 4 pee splatters to deal with rather than 24.
OH...OH....OH.....and a big deck looking over some woods for gatherings and an air hockey table, stove and fridge in the commons......OH AND FREE WI-FI, AND/OR INTERNET ROOM HOOK UP!! HELLLOOOOO...no paying for DSL!!
Yes, it's a small dorm....only 24 men and 30 women (good odds, there, boys!!). It's a COMMUNITY COLLEGE, so having dorms at all is a dream for a parent.
Son #1 is pretty ticked that I won't consider an apartment now that the dorm situation has opened up. But he'll survive. He'll get a taste of the 'real' college experience.
Now, that means paying for said dorm room. At community college, things are way less expensive than University life, BUT it still costs.
And their meal plan is less than stellar. Monday thru Friday....Breakfast and Lunch ONLY. $600 a semester. Ouch.
Oh, Internets...I am so happy. Things have been so....difficult...with son #1 lately this is a breath of fresh air. A worry no more. A safe/monitored place to live.
Oh...then he asked to go to a strip club tonight. OY!! Hold me, please.
Congratulations to Crissy....she had TACO!! woo HOO.
