I was all set to write that things had settled down nicely and then yesterday I had another meltdown.
and I got a student bank account set up at a local chain for myself,
mainly for FAFSA to drop whatever is left over after tuition and books
into. Small hang up yesterday was that we couldn't get the e-statements
set up, and that was apparently the straw that broke the camel's back
