Warning: It's a long one. The choices: Reading the Dave Ramsey book my … Continue reading The Best Decisions I’ve Ever Made
It's that time of year again! Tundra turned 10 on Saturday, so we took him on his yearly trip to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. It's about an hour and 15 minutes away from us, so it's a bit of a drive, but he loves it! He even got to meet a nice lady who pet … Continue reading Hiking in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve for Tundra’s Birthday
As I've mentioned before, I've been playing a lot of Guild Wars 2 with my husband and friends. It's a Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game, and Guild Wars is one that's buy once and then free to play. You can buy game items with real money, but you don't need them to play. Generally … Continue reading What Do You Mean You Didn’t Get Credit?

You didn't think our camping test run went smoothly, do you? Something ALWAYS goes wrong, even when you're camping in your backyard. Friday night, we all piled into the tent. (It says it's a 6 person, and I can believe it!) I even brought a fan out and ran a cord from the garage because … Continue reading No Camping Is Complete Without an Early Morning Crisis
If you know me at all, you know I'm not really a 'camping' person. I dislike lack of running water and electricity, and the one time I really DID go camping in Girl Scouts, the River flash flooded and we evacuated the campsite at two in the morning in rising water that reached shin deep … Continue reading Test Run of Our Tent Setup
For a long time, my husband and my Friday night involved going over to my in-laws and grilling out with them. We'd have good food and drinks and relax.

This last Friday was … Continue reading First Grill Out and Beans From My Uncle
