    I'm working. Don't wanna.

    Had a good weekend with my girl. NO texting at all! She was happy to be home, sleeping in her own bed with her kitty, watching TV and playing video games. She must have watched 5 movies :) It's good to have her back. (We picked up her pictures from the weekend, she got a good one of that boy :love:).

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    For all of you who have college experience, where do I begin to look for scholarships? Ty has visited the guidance office and they won't have any info available until March 1st. HUH? Isn't that getting a little late?

    I've heard so much in warnings about scams when it comes to scholarships that I'm not sure where to look. Any trusted sites?

    Yes, alot of them come out in March.... our school sends a spread sheet home everytime they find a new one...


    Fastweb.com is relaible...
    collegeboard.com will have some info..

    I will ask PJ what she we used last year and what she is using now... still need to obtain them every year... some will be recurring provided you meet the requirements but ONLY if they say so upfront.. if not, they are a one time scholarship...

    Do NOT, can't emphasise that a enough, do NOT pay for a scholarship nor a company to search for scholarships..

    Go to your local library too.. they should have a book of scholarships..

    I know we are headed there over Christmas break to start both kids looking.. I'm hoping to find some that DS16 can apply for as a Junior...

    Thanks Nan. That will at least get me (us) a good start. The guidance counselor we were assigned at the high school is the one everyone says is the worst to work with....it figures!

    I feel so helpless and lost in all of this.
