While I was out, I got a Facebook notification that Chic Fil A had a free Facebook promotion: between 3 and 4 PM, mention the promo and get a free large order of waffle fries. So I pulled in and asked for them. They said the promo was for free chicken nuggets. Even better! It was funny, after they told me it was nuggets, they said, "Your total comes to zero dollars. Please pull around." When I pulled up to the window, I asked what happened to the waffle fries promo. The kid said there were two promos going on and asked if I wanted the fries too! Why surely I do! But wait - there's more: when I got home, they gave me TWO orders of chicken nuggets AND the large waffle fries!
I would make some sort of "Free at last..." comment due to today being MLK day but someone will probably get offended...

More important than all of that, Ashleigh got another acceptance letter. This one from the University of Delaware nursing program. We hear only 100 people get into the program every year. She is still set on Stevenson but it is nice to have a choice. Today I filled out the financial aid application and found out the hard way that there is a difference between fasfa.COM and fasfa.GOV. One is the real Federal Financial Aid online program and the other is an identical site that charges you to apply... So after getting to the end of the application that comes with a fee, I recognized the error of my ways and had to do it all over again (for free).
Off this Monday. We may have a little Patriots watching party over here tomorrow night.

We got a little more snow overnight but nothing major. I have the waffle maker warming up right now and will make breakfast, then take down the outside Christmas lights. Next we take on the family room...

Last night we went to the church pot luck dinner and Lucie oversaw the younger kids while they played on these giant inflatables. She was done around 9 when the older kids (including mine) took over. We went and hung out with some friends, then went back to our house. A&E invited the brothers and sisters of Ashleigh's boyfriend over so we watched the ball drop and a bunch of no-talents grope themselves and flop around on stage with their auto-tuners making up for their lack of singing ability. ha ha Geez, how old do I sound...?
They left just before 2 AM. No big plans today. It's supposed to rain. I sure hope so. My salty white car used to be blue.
