We sent off the college applications, after much cursing at the computer, at 11:49 on November 11th. We breathed a sigh of relief. G, because it was over and she didn't have to rewrite that essay again. Me, because we had weeks and weeks before we would hear anything.
Yesterday, we got the first letter. G was accepted. With a scholarship. It feels like all the breath has left me. And we still have four more to hear from.
