What Now?

As things have a habit of doing in life, details slip away in the mind until out of nowhere, a  subconscious firing of electrons in your brain magically string together to form a memory or thought that will totally steer your day in a different direction. It can either be a good or a bad…

Winter Break, Tires and House Things

We woke up to -5F outside. The back door to the house is swollen and wont open right much to the delight of the dog, Bowl Games on TV today and we have a pond hockey tournament to watch from our porch at 1pm. 2018 is starting off in the right direction minus the cold….

Rounding Out One Shitty Year

It’s New Years Eve. Right now. Tonight. 2017 for what its worth was a shit year and I am glad it is over. Finally.  It seemed to ramble on like a bad odor.  Drunkenly ambling along in the background of life until a few good days start to string together and the positive seems plausible….

The Back Half of 2017

It has been almost 8 months since my last posting here and honestly there has been so much it’s almost hard to keep up. The time I can donate to at minimum writing anything down much less attempt to put together a cohesive thought is  getting more and more infrequent. This ironically that shadows my…

Boo For You.

Yea. Boo For You. This phrase has become a staple in our house when Max wants to voice his displeasure with a pretty much anything. Boo for me for not keeping this thing going over the last 6 months or so. To be honest, it’s been hard to keep up with the new format. It’s…

October Out Like a Light…

Poof. Gone. Done. October has come and disappeared without a trace. This has been a rough few months for reasons that really are out of our control and not to dwell, let’s  just say I will be glad when we can slam the door on 2016 and move on. This October marked our 9th anniversary…

Portable Power

In preparation for the annual cross state haul to the race track, I have been getting old Blue back in shape. These little engines work wonders to produce clean stable power on the small inverter type generators but the issue with ours specifically is that I was a dummy and did not treat the gas…

Tidal Wave of Illness.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Statistically a definite probability. The sickness. With two kids in school now, nose picking, lackluster hand washing and general carelessness….infecting the house with some form of disease is a real struggle early in the school season. However against all odd’s, I was the one who brought it…

Rainy Days and Roller Coasters

This weekend we took the long 8 minute trip to Lake Side 370 Park one exit down the highway from the house. Every year they hold a bash with food vendors, carnival rides fireworks and so on. They also have a RV park that requires a wait list for the weekend. This was our first…

New Town Shire Lane Pool

Labor Day. A time to be thankful for all the men and women who gave us the weekend, 40 hour work week, overtime pay, and many other things that keep us out of third world status. Labor day weekend also signifies the closing of the pools in New Town. Before kids, we did not utilize…

A Week of Not Much…

This week felt like most others and went by without incident. We all however seemed to pick up where we left off the school year….with colds. On Monday Max had to stay home from school because of it and he has now rebounded nicely. As for the rest of us it took the majority of…

7 Reasons Why RV Travel is Better Than You Might Think.

Having not hit the road since early June the kids and I are itching to get out for a few days. Since our June adventure I have had the pleasure of staying in multiple hotels for work and am constantly reminded why the tight quarters, stress of packing of staying in an RV trumps hotels…
