My FIL is in the hospital so we've been there the past three days. This morning I've been catching up on housework and laundry. We're going back this afternoon, and probably stay until this evening.
I started the water this morning in my garden and found more gopher holes! This time they got about two feet of my radishes and a couple of onions are just gone. So frustrating.
Leftovers for lunch and probably dinner if we're home.
My frugal endeavor today is to starch my dh's jeans myself. I iron them, but he likes them very stiff (I guess it's a cowboy thing). The cleaners charges $6 a pair. I only send in his dress jeans, but a can of the heavy spray starch was only $1.22. I know they won't be the same because of the equipment they use, but it's worth a try.

Then off to the PO, home to do laundry and wrap last two packages, back to town for Physical Therapy, home to clean and pack for my trip tomorrow after school. Lots to do and it seems as if I have time to do it all!!
