Spaghetti Monday

A long day of work filled with a lot of lies and careful deceptions wherever I look.  Then it spills into my time until 7pm. But, then the day starts to turn to Harry Potter and Andrew. Culminating in a few bites of a simple spaghetti dinner with Elizabeth.  Starting out my Spaghetti Monday with the ugly and bad, then the good.

Glass of wine

Well, it’s Sunday night. I decided tonight I would just go ahead and have a nice glass of wine and relax as the week ends.  I have decided that there are a few things I need to change.

Getting My Step Count Up

walk with a step

It’s only been a few days, but I am getting my step count up higher and higher with each passing day.  Of course this doesn’t mean it is easy.  It is weird how hard it is to walk around these days.  With all of the distractions and activities that have you sitting on your rear, a person could say without getting laughed at that they don’t have time to take a walk. But, it is laughable, if you think about…

I decided to start a new exercise routine.  I am going to walk each day.  That’s right! Exercise Video So, here is my video of my first walk.  Man…

TV Without Cable- Hello Amazon Fire

Amazon Fire Over the last 7 years, Elizabeth and I have tried to figure out how to keep the television without the clutter that isn’t good for children.  Amazon Fire TV was the best decision.  After all, Andrew doesn’t deserve to watch any commercials.  He doesn’t have the tools to fight the deceptive psychological games that television uses to make people spend yet.  We just didn’t want it anymore.  So, we went cold turkey and stopped all program television.  No…

Cracker Barrel Breakfast

Sunday Morning! Elizabeth, Andrew and I decided to start out with a fun stop off at Cracker Barrel for some breakfast.  Some great pancakes and bacon for Andrew.  A little of everything for me and a lot of French toast for Elizabeth. It is a new day and a good day.  I’m trying to get more time out of each day and I’m trying to get in front of everything.  This requires getting up a little earlier these days. Andrew…

Boston Trip/Dream

Green Line – Boston Looking into taking a trip back to Boston someday.  The whole area is wonderful, clean and full of great people from all over the world.  I think our next trip is going to be to Des Moines, but I can do two things at the same time.  We found a few good Travel Trailers in Iowa and we always wanted to check out the people and the scenery. Boston is a place of great ideas, strong…

Travel Trailer Update

Small Bumper Pull Trailer So, after all of the research I have done to come up with the best possible travel trailer with the cheapest outlay of cash, I am a little stumped.  We have a tow vehicle that can tow 5000 pounds max with 500 tongue weight.  The tongue weight is a problem.   Man is it a problem. Part of my objective is to put a travel trailer together that could be lived in for a month at…
