Re: Being Frugal - is there anything that you are tired of?

I get seriously tired of packing my lunch, but don't have much of an alternative.

Janet, thank you. The ER determined he has good blood flow in the leg, so the swelling is a mystery. He was given some pain medication, which should at least get him a good night's sleep.
