But spending per student is low. Don't mess with their football programs, though - those appear to be funded separa...

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

8 of 14... 57.14% :D Not much to report. Work is still working, DH is still away, kids are still doing the kid thing, we home school year-round so they're busy, though even if they public schooled they'd still have around 10 days left in their academic year in this area.

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

Aaah! My mother is coming in June. There goes 2 weeks of the moratorium. I'll have to do a late June / early July thing, still cover 4-5 weeks with the attempt at uber frugality.

Re: Sandi's 2019: Wow This Is A Challenge!

I will publish the most excellent 5 out of 9 days: 55.55% Because this, too, shall pass. Not immediately, but because DH leaves the country again this weekend we'll see a false sense of super-frugal. THEN... deck building begins and all $$$$ breaks loose. So, I'll report the good through the 19th an...
