Two! Count 'em TWO drama queens!

My daughter, Dani got word on Saturday that she has been accepted into the theatre program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, PA! This is really such a relief for her! When she didn't get accepted into the Point Park program, she was upset.. it was her first choice. IUP is 1/3 the cost of PPU! And her father and I both liked this school much better.

Now she's busy choosing her dorm SUITE and her roommate! These days, you can go online, choose what building you want to live in and see who your roommate will be long before you ever get there! She'll be living in a 2 bedroom suite, with 2 girls in one bedroom with their own bath and 2 girls in the other bedroom, with their own bath and a living room and a kitchen with a full size fridge and microwave to share among the 4 of them! And she was able to snag a first floor suite! No trudging up all those stairs on moving day! How cool is that!!! Her sister, Gina is jealous! Her dorm was tiny and in her sophomore year, they had community showers!

In other Dani-related news, she was cast a Little Red Riding Hood in her high school's production of Into The Woods, which will be performed in April. She was hoping to be cast as the Witch (everyone wants to be the Wtich!) Rehearsals start right after Christmas break (I can say Christmas because she goes to Catholic school :) ) So for a few weeks in January, she'll actually be in rehearsals for 2 different plays. They always do a Murder Mystery in winter. I know who the murderer is and I've been sworn to secrecy!

And last but not least, my youngest child, my baby will be 18 on Friday! Yes, she came into this world on December 26, 1990, all 8 lbs. 7 oz. of her! I cannot believe she'll be legally an adult in 5 short days!

Congrats!! Sounds like it's all working out really well!! I remember my first dorm room... it was certainly NOT any kind of suite!!

Awesome! Even better, she'll be out of the house for a while, huh?

Now it will be time for you to book a cruise.


Joanie said...

Yup! She'll be out for 4 years minimum!
Booking the cruise is not a problem... PAYING for the cruise, now that's a little trickier!

Hey! how are you and Jim holding up with all that snow? Dani's freaking out because she's flying to Portland on Saturday!

Well, it's not too bad right now but the streets are PACKED with snow. 4 wheel drive or chains are needed.
