Loved reading your story.
I had two kids in college at the same time, so I know how rough that can be, especially on the budget.
Fortunately my DD has graduated and my DS is a senior this coming year, so the end is in sight!! Hoping to travel some after the bills are paid down.
You've got a wonderful list of hostas. Hard to believe now that you use to dislike hostas.
When the hosta bug hits, it hits hard!
