Meetings and Granite Countertops

I'm home...it's cold...I want to take a hot bath and put on my pajamas, but NO!! It's school board meeting night. I don't GENERALLY mind going to school board meetings, except when it's raining or cold or both. I should just stay at the office and work right though, but it takes me less than 10 minutes to get home and taking a little break is nice...except when it is raining or cold or both.

I do believe I neglected to mention that Lorelai is all settled in her new apartment with her new (YAY YAY HIP HIP HURRAY!!!!!!) roommates. There are three other girls, all seniors, who are just as sweet as can be. Each girl has her own private bedroom AND bathroom. The kitchen has granite countertops.

This is NOT how it went when I was in college back in the early '80's. Hardly anybody at my sweet southern all girl college ever moved out of the dorm and into an apartment. There were always four girls in a suite sharing a bathroom. I believe there was a sad little kitchen area in each dorm basement but it was scary down there. Shoot, my freshman year we didn't even have air conditioning. Times sure enough have changed.

God was good to us. We'd reconciled ourselves to the fact that Lor was going to have to tough out the unfortunate roommate situation in the dorm for the remainder of the year. THEN...this apartment opportunity fell into our collective lap at a football game tailgate party. She went over to look at it the next afternoon and signed the lease the day after that. We moved her in Monday a week ago.

Legare is jealous because his apartment in Chapel Hill does not sport granite countertops. Life can be hard son...life can be hard...


  1. You had me laughing again, girl!! Granite countertops, indeed. I don't know the situation in the dorm with Lorelai, I may have missed a post. But Abby had a problem with her roomate's boyfriend sleeping over every night. They are no longer roomates...


  2. Such an upgrade from even my children's dorm rooms or apartments. Sounds like a great place, I sure hope it works out for her. Hugs, Marty

  3. Aww, so glad the less than pleasant situation is in the rear view mirror, and a great apt. and roommates is in the new horizon! Yay!


  4. So glad your daughter is in a better situation :)

    Sounds quite fancy! So many new, nice places have popped up in my college town over the past four years since I graduated that I hardly recognize it! I had to tough it out with tile floors and laminate counters, ha!

  5. Yeah! I am so glad your daughter is living in a good situation.

  6. It is wonderful that your daughter has such a good situation.

    I just found your blog. I saw your Clemson comment that you left on Preppy 101's blog and I had to pop over. I am a Clemson girl too and love when I find others.

    Looking forward to more from you.

    Have a great day!

  7. lol! well i am glad she has a new situation! that's great. so cute about the granite countertops. you know girls take good care of such things, the landlords probably breathed a sigh of relief when they signed! :)

  8. So glad your daughter is in a new place, with new roommates. Who says tailgating is a waste of time?? :-)

  9. So glad sweet Lorelei is off to a fresh new start.

    And what better way with granite....in your BATHROOM!!!

    Poor Legare. How is he going to make it?

  10. I am so happy for your girl!

    What a wonderful turn around in her situation.

    A relief for her mama!

  11. Yay for her! Times have definitely changed a lot, huh?


Please comment...it makes me HAPPY!
