I tried to post yesterday, but I couldn’t get a signal. Today I’m posting from my phone. CM and I finally came to an agreement about the remainder of our time in Hawaii. Instead of the volcano we are going to buy tickets to awesome local activities. Yesterday we went to Sea Life Park [...]

You would think that we learned our lesson last time. But no, we didn’t! We’re still making plans and counting on money that we don’t have on hand. We did it with the RV and we got burned. We didn’t learn our lesson and we did it with this trip and [...]

So, CM and I had an “animated discussion” yesterday about moving to Hawaii. I asked him if given the choice to buy a house in Hawaii or buy a house in New York, which would he choose. Believe it or not, the cost of living in Hawaii is slightly higher than it is [...]

My mom died of cancer 5 years ago. Most days I don’t think about it, but today her life and death were front and center in my mind. Nature has a funny way of revealing things about your true character. It illuminates things that were so hidden away inside of you that [...]

As I type this we are on our way to the Grand Canyon. Did you know that it costs $25 PER VEHICLE to go into the Grand Canyon?? That’s crazy to me. Yesterday we visited the Petrified Forest and they charged $10 to get in! What they do to make it look [...]

We are STILL in New Mexico. We can’t seem to escape this place!! Honestly, there’s so much to do and see that we keep pulling over and end up not doing too much driving.
