Just a brief note to thank those of you who wrote privately as well as to those of you who expressed kind thoughts on the list.
I had hoped to dash even a few lines to each person this evening, but I’ve managed to have an accident and I’m sitting here in horrible pain from a broken big toe. The only reason I’m mentioning this at the moment is because I wanted to respond to the thoughtful notes. I’ll try to get to them over the next few days.
In the meantime, now I can go to sleep with a clear conscience. 🙂 I will get to everyone.
Warmly, Michelle Budget101_ moderator and Ethnic Inexpensively columnist
