Beach or Beer

Beer For My Friends It is the end of the work day and it was a long day. I can’t sit on the beach so I think I’ll have a beer. Trying to make right things that were wrong all day can be exhausting. Going through paperwork and documenting as much as I can makes the day fly by though. The overall atmosphere in the office was good today. We just don’t have fun and we probably shouldn’t. But, I…

Too Many Options for Blog

Blog SEO & WordPress The options they have for blogs these days are endless.  Do I have SEO?  Should I attach it to YouTube?   Is there a way to automatically link my posts to Instagram?  The answers are difficult and complex.  What to do?  Well, I expect that I can get through the most important aspect of a blog, the content.  Spending my time trying to figure out all of the plugins and widgets is confusing and outside of…

Ruby Tuesday Takes the Win for Dinner

Food for Thought at Ruby Tuesday I just don’t know why it is so difficult to cook dinner and lunch each day, but I have to make a better effort.  It seems that I get caught up in things and lose track of time too often.  Planning ahead is usually not that difficult, but when it comes to eating lunch and dinner, I would hope to do a little better. So for dinner this evening, it will have to be…

Laundry Blows and That’s the Truth

Just Do It Already Doing laundry is tedious, boring and absolutely necessary.  I hate doing laundry like you do.  I should clarify.  I have folding laundry just like you.  I mean, putting the dirty clothes in a washer and then in a dryer is relatively easy and doesn’t take much time.  So, if you are complaining about this aspect of laundry, you obviously aren’t doing the real work. The Folding! Everything is always inside out and needs to be turned…

A Truck on the Horizon

Truck Purchase: Ford, Dodge or Chevy? I can’t seem to find a vehicle other than a truck that will be able to pull a travel trailer without constantly worrying about the weight of the rig.  Therefore, I am moving on and closing the possibility of even light weight or smaller trucks.  I just have to find a good 1/2 ton pickup truck and that is all there is to it. I am now moving forward with either Dodge, Ford or…

Tired of Eating Out

Stay in or Eating Out Stuck in a world of convenience?  What is convenient about food that someone else makes?  When eating out the food is always filled with fat and salt.  It is always washed by chemicals and prepared in bulk.  It costs a lot and takes longer to get than it would be to just make it ourselves.  But, staying in and making our own meals is too much work and all you have to do is look…

Living in an RV

An RV Versus a Brick and Mortar Home Trying to live as cheaply as possible is a challenge.  A challenge that I’m willing to take on.  However, I have a family and it may not be done growing.  When I look into all of the possibilities of turning bills into a memory, the full time RV lifestyle catches my interest. I had no idea anyone would live in a travel trailer.  How is that even possible?  Then I started looking…

Elizabeth is Still Full of Mucus

Sickly Mucus Filled Lady So here we are on day three of a mucus nightmare and we are getting it under control.  Elizabeth can breath through her nose, but the damage has been done.  Her sense of taste comes and goes and her right side sinuses are still sensitive.  However, based on where we were two days ago, times are good. Oh, yes, looking back to Thursday and the ear pain and constant pain of blowing her nose have passed. …

Best Reasonably Priced Tow Vehicle

Nissan Tow Vehicle-  The Armada Am I going to get a travel trailer?  Probably.  Are we going to want to live in it and be happy?  I don’t know.  It doesn’t really matter unless we move towards finding out.  And that means we need a vehicle that can pull a travel trailer.  Right now, we have a Nissan Pathfinder with a CVT and V6 and it isn’t a bad tow vehicle.  According to Nissan, this vehicle can pull up to…

Darn Flu- Elizabeth Caught It

Is it the Flu? At 2:00 a.m., the worst of the cold from hell struck Elizabeth. Yes, it is the flu.  Confirmed.  What started out for Andrew as the sniffles and then ten days of snot infested mayhem, has moved on to its next victim, Elizabeth.  From mucus infestation to infections of the ears and sinus cavities,  she is miserable. This winter is the worst by far that we have seen.  We already had the confirmed Flu.  I went out…
