Cole starts college on Monday. I can't begin to express all of the emotions tied up in that phrase. Pride, excitement, sadness. But enough about that for now. I might get a little teary eyed.
Cole went to the campus book store to purchase his books yesterday. He bought three used books and one new book. I know, a new book, but, the new book isn't available as a used book, it's BRAND NEW, so he had no choice. But the new book wasn't the most expensive book. The most expensive book he purchased, which was used, was $117. A book on Chemistry. It's paperback.
The total for all four books . . . $403.00. Isn't that ridiculous? I mean, really, its paper. $403.00. They don't LOOK like they cost $403.00, do they?
Thank heavens for a scholarship that provides a $500 book allowance!
