Did you ever noticed how my countdowns on the sidebar were always off?? As soon as I made a countdown for picking up the RV, the dealer called and told me he needed me to pick it up now. As soon as I made one for NY, a campground reservation opened up in Jersey. [...]

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

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 [...]

Hollywood, Small Towns, and Me (KJ)

I am just going to put this out there. I have seen so many scary movies that take place in small towns, that I’m a little scared to visit them. Maybe it’s just that positive movies about small towns just don’t become blockbusters. While films like “Jeepers Creepers”, “A Time to Kill”, [...]

First things first, I’m over my little temper tantrum. Thanks, Chris (one of our readers), for the reality check. Tonight TBS (the cable channel) threw a pick-me-up my way in the form of the movie “RV”. Perfect! If you haven’t seen this movie before you have to rent it, or catch [...]

We have just about sold all of our electronics. I’ve sent hundreds of emails and we’ve burned through nearly all of our AT&T rollover minutes trying to give people directions to our house, so they can pick stuff up. During these last couple of weeks, I’ve seen electronics that cost us $2000+ sell [...]

Viking brand ranges are the top-selling high-end ovens in the country. I’ve drooled over them once or twice in my life. Did you know that 75% of them go unused?? I personally draw a parallel with my own possessions. I’ve got a ton of clothes and I’m so sad because I [...]

We have nearly stretched ourselves to our financial breaking point in order to buy the RV and now that we’ve got it, we can’t move it! Then we see the article in the New York Times about oil shooting up 8% to $138 a barrel just because an investment bank said it would hit $150 [...]

CM decided that we should eat dinner in the RV. He made cheeseburgers and fries and we brought it all into the dining area. The dinette was pretty roomy considering that I sat next to CM and the kids sat with each other. I’d have to say that the biggest problem was [...]
