I'm Missing the Christmas Tree Already

(0) Comments | Posted January 11, 2015 | 3:49 PM

I hate taking the Christmas tree down. I hate the actual boring process, but I also hate the fact that the tree is down. Not so much because the holidays are over, but because I like the tree and now it won't be there all lit up at night.

There is a new movement going on regarding tiny homes. There are a couple of tv shows regarding house hunting and/or physically having them built from kits and now there is a thing where cargo containers are being made into tiny homes. I like this. It's a nice...

Why I hate my new Chase Slate VISA card

(0) Comments | Posted October 14, 2014 | 9:30 AM
