The High Cost of Education

Looks yummy, huh? 
The recipe, and the beginning of our
Celebration of All Things Fudgey, can be found here.


Salute to Fudge, Day 2:

Your college kids called tonight, and casually announced that through a silly little oversight, they forgot to pay the balance on their housing fees for next semester.  If they don't have $500 by December 2 -- oh, hey! Is that today? Dude. Wow. That's, like, crazy -- they'll be homeless till Spring Break.

You get three giant pieces of fudge if you simply grit your teeth and transfer all of the cash formerly designated as 'our first Christmas gifts since we had children' into their school accounts, resisting the temptation to Fed Ex the forgetful ninnies a pup tent and directions to the nearest KOA.

"Forgot to pay..." HA! Why I oughta...!

I'm all for the KOA thing. What? It gets cold in Rexburg? Wow. That's, like, crazy.

P.S. Yay! The FUDGE is BACK!!

If you send enough fudge with the tent, that would probably be alright.

Forget the camping (mailing a tent gets expensive) and tell them to have 3 months worth of sleepovers at their friends' houses.

Naughty, naughty babies. I hope Santa didn't see them "forget".

I remember buying my husband Christmas gifts. Before we had kids. That was fun...
