Finally FAFSA'd!

Long long ago, in a galaxy far far away, I said, "First you fafsa." Fourteen months ago, I was talking about this. More than a whole year, for cryin out loud.

Well, it's finally happened. Off went the forms. It's possible that by next September, the older bearded young giant will be in Olympia at school, the younger bearded young giant will be at Mt. Hood Community College (he just called and asked about getting in early because he hates not being there yet - hates working because it's not working on music), and I'll be online, or doing testing for credits, or at the community college as well, because I want that degree from Marylhurst. And now - finally! - it looks like I might be on my way. If I were 30 years younger, I'd be packing my suitcases just to see how I could fit things into them. Practice packing.

THIS looks like BLISS to me. It really does.

Ugh! We've done the FAFSA umpteen times this week. Our pin number doesn't work/the form shows our income under Caleb's name/try pin number again/apply for new pin number/i've tried too many times - must now be verified by the SSA/type it all in only to start over/and on and on. And I"m fairly smart - how do the dumb people do this!
