No, finals are not over. Although, for Ducks, they’re technically 60 percent over.
The good – no, make that GREAT news – is that Ducks got a job during Christmas break.
I wanted him to just take a break and relax, but he said he would go too stir-crazy sitting at home every day for a month. So, instead, he got a job working with his former employer. It’s super exciting because — to be completely honest — he’s going to make a lot of money. Our goal for this year has been to pay one-third of his tuition and all of his books out-of-pocket instead of getting loans for it (all the remainder, of course, is loans…sigh). And, with the time he’ll be working this month, we should be able to cover our portion of the spring’s tuition payment.
Now, I’ll have to be really sweet to him all month because he’ll be the breadwinner again. Sigh – I guess we can’t have everything. 😉
Hope you all had a great weekend!
