I confess... Thank you Mr. President! My college is ALL paid for except $200!!!!!
It is great to see people getting help with school though. My sister is hoping to benefit from some changes to the IBR program to help repay her loans.
I confess today totally sucks. My poor brother and SIL just got word the little one they conceived through IVF isn't going to make it. In fact, she started miscarrying on the way home from the appointment. I'm so, so sad for them and I totally know what they're going through.
And then, I was asked by someone from my old due date room if, since I continued to update the due dates thread, would I mind updating the thread with the actual birth dates. I just cannot do this. I'm actually kind of offended - I'm happy for them all, but I really can't constantly be reminded I should be giving birth in a few days.
This day SUCKS.

I confess today when one of my students got tired of working with me, he pointed to the picture symbols I made for him and said, "I want ... finished." Completely unique sentence he's never said before. That's what I get for teaching him those words! I didn't know whether to be proud or offended!
I confess I had an old man tonight (probably in his 70's) give me this line -- "What angel did you steal your lips from? They really are gorgeous"
I confess it was a long night at work -- acoustic night during happy hour, shoplifter, first time closing... I was left alone for the last 45 minutes of happy hour and had 7 drink orders piled up with 2 people still in line! Then I found out that on monday they are putting me (by myself) on the front registers, which I have never done before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ACK!
Haha, yeah, you shoulda responded, "yeah, I ripped them off an angel's face." Bwahahaha.
I confess my parents and I have all been very worried about my sister for a long time. Last night she called me and at some point she made me laugh and in the middle of my laughing at her, I came out and said what I have been afraid to say for years in so many words. She stopped and said, "You know, if I can have you laugh at me and tell me to do that I think maybe I can really do it." And then she thanked me about 5 times. I'm in shock!

But it sounds like you are going into a pretty useful field...smart woman!
I confess that I love my MIL, but I think she's the worst cook ever!
I'm all for checking up on what your daughter is doing, but to me that level of involvement just seems creepy. I would have died rather than have my mother know what a boy was saying to me at that age.
Yikes. I don't think a 15 year old should be getting dirty texts at all.
I was talking to MIL last night about genealogy, and she showed me on the national database website that she, Mia and DH are descendants of Egill Skallagrimsson (a crazy mass murdering viking who lived about 1000 years ago). I think it's kinda cool.
