Even though we spent most our day mulling around camp, we ended up spending quite a bit of money yesterday. Here’s the breakdown:

Day 2 – Do Your Clothes Define You? (KJ)

3. July 2008

3 Comments

I once did a little bit of research on a man named Edward Bernays. He is considered the father of modern public relations. While working on an ad campaign for Macy’s he created and popularized the idea that people should use clothing to define themselves. I think this idea is built in [...]

Day 1 Part 2 (KJ)

I think I am going to try and keep track of our finances on this blog. I will admit that after we left Bed-Stuy we parked in Williamsburg for a few hours and I bought some t-shirts for everyone….and some shoes for myself. I spent almost $300, but I’m not including that since [...]

Day 1 Part 1 (KJ)

1. July 2008

We did it. We drove out of Bed-Stuy for the last time. I can’t believe it. CM and I were at our wit’s end last night. Every little thing, be it pictures or clothing, turned into an argument. He just wanted to toss everything and I kept telling him that we [...]

It’s 3 a.m. (KJ)

1. July 2008

CM and I have just finished cleaning out the apartment. We have packed our van to the brim and there is hardly any visible floor space in the RV. So much for downsizing. I mean, we definitely got rid of a lot, but now that all of the stuff we want to [...]

In the beginning CM was very supportive of my purging process. That was 2 weeks ago, and now he’s starting to get a little edgy because I’m dragging my feet. The other day when I asked him if I could bring 3 more books (I admit, they probably weight about 20 lbs by [...]

Midget & Widget: An Update (KJ)

26. June 2008

0 Comments

In the beginning of this endeavor CM & I made the mistake of not thinking about how the transition to the RV would affect the kids. They were both sad to lose our cat, but since then they have been really happy. Midget is more and more affectionate towards me everyday. Don’t [...]

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff (KJ)

26. June 2008

0 Comments

That’s what they say anyway… Do you ever reach the point in a move when you just start throwing everything in boxes and resolve to sort through it later at your new home? Well, that’s the point we’re at now. The only problem is that our new home/RV has pretty much reached capacity.

My Apologies (KJ)

This blog is getting harder and harder to maintain as the 1st gets closer and closer. We’ve been working pretty steady, but we still have so much crap to get rid of. Not to mention all of the painting we’ve got to do. I will try to post again this evening. [...]

Was It Good For You? (KJ)

24. June 2008

Comments Off

I don’t think it was too good for us. About 40 minutes after my last post, CM announced that he was going in because it was too hot. I was a little disappointed at first, but after he left the bunk cooled off quickly. However, I did fall asleep in that short [...]
