~~~I'm not cheap. I'm sensible.~~~
As my children grow into productive citizens of the world, I see some of that sensibility peeking around corners. My twin sons have lived in the dorms for the past three years. It's been fun watching them figure stuff out. Like how to feed an unsatiable appetite and palate. Let me stop here and add...one of the greatest gifts you can give your kids is the love of good food and HOW TO COOK IT. Lots of these college kids live on a diet of food from the gas station. How gross is that? But eating well on a college budget is hard. Twin Two bought a bag of flour and a dozen eggs, for making his own pasta. "I did the math, Mom, this is much cheaper. Those boxes of pasta cost $1 !"
Anyway, this week I heard the ultimate plan of sensibility...
"My iMac is all beat up. I really need a new computer, but they are so expensive. I'm just going to build my own."
