And the boys bought me some of the Spring Blossom Corelle Compatible dinnerware. I am keeping this at work since the students (and the cleaning lady) are prone to breaking things. I keep dishes and silverware in the sink area of my office since there are days when I eat most, if not all of my meals at work. And I like to class it up by eating my frozen Trader Joe's off a real plate.
Finally for the pièce de résistance whilst out shopping with the Vinyl Whores over New Years Weekend, I found glassware.
7 small glasses and 6 medium for $1 each at the Waterbury Goodwill.
