Sorry I haven't Been Around Much!

I just wanted to say sorry I haven't been around much these past two weeks. I will try and get out and visit everyone soon. Zoe's Dad died from liver cancer last week and Steve and I have been crazy busy, flying her home from University and helping with the necessary paperwork and all. The remembrance will be this week and then Steve and I have to get Zoe back to college on Monday, so it's just been a bit of a whirlwind around here. Not to mention the tumultuous economy and trying to plan for the future, when you have a kid who must take out a college loan next year and a failing credit system and economy, we are quite worried.

I'm so sorry about Zoe's dad. I hope Zoe is okay. I hadn't even thought about next year's college loan. We have one this year from the federal government, and will need one for the next three years. It's so frustrating when you have a really smart kid who worked hard for her college education, but is at risk of not getting it funded.

Hi, my name is Darci. I am from Crooks SD near Sioux Falls. We have a horse rescue group here. doublehphorses.org is our website. I am moving my web journal to blogspot. I moved much of it yesterday. It's doublehphorserescue.blogspot.com

from Blogger, is there a way to easily find a bunch of blogs of similar interest? I don't even remember how I found yours.
I'm new to this blogspot thing so it will take me a while to get going on it.
just trying to meet some blogging friends with similar interests.
Darci.

I am so sorry for Zoe's loss. That must be hard.

And the stress of college loans are hard with out the economy falling apart. Take a deep breath and it will get better.

I'm sorry to hear about Zoe's loss. Hope she is doing okay. Tough to lose your dad at such a young age.

The rest will work itself out. I put myself through 6 years of college without any help from my parents. It can be done. It's tough, but it can be done.

Thanks All, I'm sure Zoe will ok, She has Steve and I and she's had Steve for her for about 8 yrs now. The college loans, well, we'll have to see what the future brings.

Sorry to hear about all the troubles you guys are having - these are tough times! Big hug to Zoe. It's a good thing that she's got you and Steve to love her.

Callie said...

Thanks All, Her worry is evidenced by hintd that we owe her at least ten years or more.
