1. Are you good about going to the doctor?
Not at all.
2. What do you think about the practice of restaurants adding automatic tips for large groups or specific events?
It’s okay to suggest a tip but there should definitely be an option for the diner to change the tip depending on the kind of service they receive.
3. When was the last time you went out for dinner?
We had grilled chicken last Thursday night. For the past few weekends, we’ve been trying our darnest not to get caught in the weekend madness. We dash in, grab our groceries and a quick bite to eat, and we’re outta there before that “clanging” music drives me nuts.
4. What is your best budget saving tip for recovering from an unexpected expense or planning for one?
Get everyone involved. It’s more fun and it can get a lot more creative when everyone’s chipping in with ideas on how to save, where to find good deals, etc.
5. My question…
Raine (our resident college sophomore) has a Philosophy assignment which inexplicably begs some questions that are larger than life. As you can imagine, we spent the better part of the evening debating the whys and wherefores of evolution. Somewhere between the question of whether we are products of evolution and how, by being such products, we are not free to be free (whatever that means 🙄 ), we were clutching our numbskulls and declaring that no GPS is going to get us any closer to where we were two hours ago.
My question for you today, however, has nothing to do with Philosophy. My question is simply this – Do you, and to what extent, do you help your kids with their homework?
