it's a panther!

While I was on my lunch break today, I checked my Orange Gearle e-mail account. This is the email I received from my daughter:

Woo Hoo!!!

You know we just had to celebrate. First I bought new t-shirts - UNI - pink (cuz that's her favorite color). I gave her the t-shirt when I picked her up from her boyfriend's. The three of us went to Carlos O'Kelly's. On the way Justin says, "What would it spell if you used EACH of the initials in Carlos O'Kelly's?" (COK) How funny is that?

I'm proud of her. I didn't doubt that she would get in, but I think she doubted it. For the last three weeks or so, she has practically run to the mailbox to check and see if her letter came. Yesterday, MLK Day, no mail. I thought she might have a heart attack! :-)

Let's see....my guitar is fixed, Barak Obama is probably running for president, my students were hilarious today, my lesson on using mental images to enhance reading comprehension went well, I found my belt, my dad is this much closer to a new kidney, my daughter got in to college....if it were just warmer, this might be a perfect day.
