Good Fortune

There were four fortune cookies, Mary and Kate selected one each, ripped open the wrapper, handed me the fortune and devoured the cookie. Mary's fortune, correctly chosen, said she would find success through her dynamic personality. Quite likely true but it was Kate's fortune that sent me singing, "you will receive good news through the mail very soon". Oh please, the final round of school acceptance letters were on the way, please China let Kate's fortune be accurate.

Thank heaven for mu shu tofu, the letters arrvied today and the girls were each chosen for three schools, the same three schools, it's our choice. We'll spend the next week making visits, researching and thinking way too much about this decision but bless the cook, we have a school.

It always works out -- yet, in the meantime, causes us parents untold stress!! remember what someone once told me when i was freaking about kindergarten, "you'll never know if you made the wrong decision." because, if you do -- you'll change it! now, care to do this again next year for eliza to get into a high school!?
