I've tried the "eat or starve" approach, Rinty. All it does is starve them and frustrate me, so I just don't call things by the forbidden words (casserole is another one, although pilaf is fine) and they eat. :-D

Re: Daily Check In Sept. 22, 2015

Thank you! He starts at the new place Oct. 5, so he'll have a few days to just enjoy life. :) We need to do some painting on the exterior of the house, but I'm putting off anything that requires getting on a ladder until we have health insurance again, which won't be until early November.

We've had the air conditioning off for eight of the last ten days. DH said that knocked $35 off the electric bill. Other frugal things: 1. Used $6.25 in coupons on today's shopping trip.
