So much to do.... So little time...

Well I have 3 weeks until graduation and my party. I am getting really excited about it, but also stressed at the same time. I have nothing done yet. I need to get the house cleaned, food ordered, yard taken care of, food I am making. I will be officially done my internship on Monday. It is bittersweet. I have really enjoyed my time there. I have been asked to stay as a volunteer, which I will do until I either
1. find a full time job or
2. they find out if they have the funding to hire me.

They have told me many times, they want to hire me, they just don't know yet if they will have the funding. I guess thats what happens when you want to work for a non profit agency.

Wed. morning I went to an internship recognition breakfast at the college. That was really good. I did receive an award for that. Now on May 5 I have to be at college to get my cap, gown and hood. Greg goes to the Nascar race next weekend, so he won't be here to help me that weekend. I want to have everything done and ready to go with the house and such by the 10th of May. I don't want to have to rush around at the last minute taking care of things. Although I know I will end up doing that. I want everything totally done by Friday the 16th. That day I know I will be running around from place to place picking up platters, food and of course we can't have a party without the booze lol. Although there won't be any drinking until about 8 pm, or whenever the kids are gone.

On another note, my sister in law hasn't had the baby yet. I know she isn't due yet, but she had the first one a month early. I somehow get the feeling, this baby will be born on my graduation day. I am excited about the new baby, but I also want them to be able to come for my graduation. I haven't seen them for a while and I am looking forward to seeing them.

Thanks for all your help and suggestions

Well I have been really stressing lately about what song to play at my graduation party in memory of my parents. I listened to everyones idea. I have really thought long and hard about this. In case you didn't see my last post.. I am receiving an award before graduation. I will get the Human Service Student award. This award is for the person who excelled both in and out of the classroom. I honestly didn't think I would get this award. Last year a good friend received this award, I would have finished then, but due to circumstances, I had to take a semester off. Now without further anticipation. the song I have chosen to play in memory of my parents can be seen here....IN MEMORY OF MY PARENTS What do ya think?

Now the easy part... I am also playing a special song for my husband there. Without him I wouldn't be where I am today.. I will not reveal what I am playing for him until after the party. There are people who read this who I am sure talk to him.

What would you do?

I graduate college in just over a month. I have been planning a party, inviting family and friends. This day is going to be filled with mixed emotions, I am so happy I am finally getting my degree, surrounded by my husband, my best friend, and hopefully my brother ( depends on if my sister in law is having the baby). At the beginning of the party I want to play a song in memory of mom and dad. I just don't know which song to play. I know this is a person choice, but I am in desperate need of ideas. Before each of them passed away, I promised them each I would finish college and get my degree. They both even went so far as to tell me, when I am graduating, they are going to be there with me watching me walk across the stage. So if anyone sees a woman look toward the ceiling you can bet, that is me looking toward mom and dad. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wouldn't be for their help also. I really miss them so much. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes just thinking about it. I want the song to be a country song, I know there was one that came out in I think 2004 about rain being angels crying, but I can't remember the rest, or if I would even want that song. Please what in your opinion would be a good song to play in memory of the best mother and father I could ask for?
