Afternoon all ...
First, thanks for kind words RE DD and DW. I'm generally an optimist - so sure something will work out. Budget is okay in the short run (house paid off, only a few more car payments etc, 529 plans for college etc). Even so, always a bit jarring to be down to one salary, but we've been there before (and no doubt will be there again!). And yes, very nice to have the college situation settled. DD had her heart set on Maryland, so glad it seems manageable (probably at the stretch end of manageable, but still...).
@sbee - DD says she gave up competitive swimming with this past high school season. Thought she might have had D1 potential before her leg issues, but she's closed the book on it in the last few years. She hopes to do some guarding at UMD, and will probably swim to keep in shape. I tried to convince her of college club swimming as an option, but so far she's having none of it ... however, like you, I think she's a water-child at heart and will continue in some form for life!
Sparty - Sorry about the house stress. Breathe.
Lunch run with Kevin - about 9:10 pace. Still feeling kind of crappy, so maybe not the best idea to go out and suck in more pollen - but it felt good at the time.
Great day all.
