  1. Too many bills, too little money! We're down about $2K in monthly income and will be for the foreseeable future. + Medical bills. DS is applying to colleges.
  2. Monday - hotdogs, corn on the cob, sauerkraut, roasted brussel sprouts, salad Tuesday - take out from local restaurant: Baked Rosemary Chickpeas: Slow Roasted with Onion, Garlic and Rosemary for a rich, caramelized, hearty meal. Fennel Pot Pie: Fresh fennel, leaks, carrots and scallions made with phyllo dough for a Veggie-Full version of Spanakopita Wednesday - boneless, skinless chicken breasts, baked; potatoes of some description, salad Thursday - taco night Friday - pasta, salad,
  3. No. Only recently on FB for a few. I graduated high school 44 years ago. I'm friends with 2 folks from college and have many friends from grad school.

  7. Wowzer! My sympathies. I prescribe an early bedtime for all kids and chocolate and beverage of choice for MedicMom.
  8. I accidentally paid the health insurance bill twice. We're behind a bit on it, but I wasn't planning on paying a total of $4,000 instead of 2,000. "Ouch" is putting it mildly. We've cut way back on groceries and I am thankful for our local grocery outlet.

  10. Spanish, labor union history, biographies, local culture, politics, and economics
  11. It finally dawned on me to grocery shop on Tuesday, the day the store gives triple gas points. Our gas fill up was 15 cents off per gallon.
  12. DS will be 18 when he starts his senior year of high school. Definitely, we'll still be supporting him!
