Which is exactly the time it takes for one to realize that this not buying anything is not quite as fun as it seems when you romanticize it.
That might have something to do with the 2 batches of bread I meesed up today. Note to self: This is not the time to try out new bread recipes.
And I have had a couple of work-related issues that must absolutely completely and entirely be resolved no later than yesterday. But since I’m waiting on other people for the resolutions, I have to content myself with fretting. And fretting is much easier on a full stomach and I’m craving a club sandwich with avocado from a local fast food place, and since I’m waiting anyway, I could just run over there, you know get out of the house for a minute, take a break, clear my head, ignore my offspring. . . Except oh yeah, this not eating out was going to be so awesome!

On the upside, we did score a DVD player off of Freecycle, so no dillema there.The can opener is still a novelty that they all beg to use. And most importantly, assigned dinner nights have worked exceptionally well, with dinner being served before 7pm every night this week. And other than bread and fresh fruit and veggies, we have plenty of food. I think even the milk will hold out another week at least, maybe two.
And there’s always ingredients for muffins!
