It's Prom Season!

We've done very well planning for senior prom on April 26.
For my daughter:
dress - check
makeup - check
jewelry - check
shoes - check
alterations - check
hair appointment - check
dinner reservations - check
flowers - not yet
date?  Iffy.  That's a whole different post, though!

My son had a date, but she got in some kind of trouble, and now she can't go, so he's not going to go, either.  That makes me sad.  I can't convince him to ask someone else or to go with a group of friends. I guess it's just not important to him.  Do you think he will regret it?  I know my daughter would.

Every Mother Knows

Oh, how hard it is to see your child or children hurting.  You'd rather take the heartache and pain, the humiliation or suffering.  Why does it hurt worse when you aren't the one going through it?  It just does.  This should be a happy time for us with prom, banquets, awards, graduation, and college coming up, but the last week and a half have been emotional hell.  That's what I'm confessing for today.

Throwback Thursday

My dad is the two-year-old in this picture, the little bitty one in front.  1937 was the year.

Friday Confessions

I confess...

I have not been doing well with my sticky notes (encouraging messages I leave wherever I go).  This is one thing I wanted to do for Lent rather than giving something up.

I am, however, doing my daily crunches.

I feel like I have wasted my spring break this year.  It's back to school on Monday, and we haven't really done much.  We went to dinner theater one night, and I went to the movies once, but that's about it.  Could be because my daughter got her wisdom teeth out, though.  Poor thing.

I feel a little guilty that my husband and I are going on a four day trip to Las Vegas in May and leaving the "kids" here.  They're plenty old enough to take care of themselves, but I still feel guilty.  Isn't that what moms do best?

I'm a little freaked out about this missing Malaysia flight.  I hope they figure out what happened soon, and I pray for the safety of the passengers.

I also admit that it reminds me a lot of the plot of "Lost," which was once one of my favorite TV shows.

I'm addicted to Bride-Day shows on The Learning Channel.  (Say Yes to the Dress, Something Borrowed/Something New, and so on)  I could watch those shows all day!  I love looking at all the wedding dresses!

On the other hand, I admit to being a die-hard Rockets fan.  Dresses and basketball.  Go figure!

What are you confession today?  I was going to link up, but the hostess of Friday Confessional still hasn't posted the link.  That irritates me.

Good News!

I've been so worried about paying for college for my daughter next year.  She wants to attend a private Christian college which is quite a bit more than what a state school will cost.  We got great news in the mail today!  She has received a scholarship AND a grant!  If she takes out a small loan (which she won't have to pay back until she graduates) we have reduced the cost to about what a state school will cost.  I am beyond excited!  And so proud!

Now we just have to get her to Jamaica for her mission trip.
