Day 22 today is the last day to use my $25 Kohl’s Cash. I have a love hate relationship with Kohl’s Cash. I love getting it. I hate that it’s not redeemable for a couple of weeks from receipt, which almost guarantees I will forget and lose out on this free money. Not this time.

Day 13, we’re hitting the open road. Danny has the week off so we’re getting in the jeep and heading south for a few days. Hey, it’s cheaper than flying. First stop Rhode Island. What? Where do you start your vacations? RI has some real great spots. The Mansions in Newport. The Grand Slots in
The days are starting to blend together in a ball of procrastination and snacks. It starts the same every morning. I get up with the greatest of intentions. I make a list of the things I’m going to do. Day 4: Clean my car inside and out, reorganize the cabinets, clean out my bedroom closet,
Day 1 of unemployment, I wake full of ideas. I jump out of bed and head downstairs and start listing all the great things I’m going to do today. I’m going to take the dog for a walk, I’m going to google some celebrity gossip, check out the ole pinterest boards and see what kind
Pretty legit title to this blog. I didn’t even have to come up with it. It was just there ready and waiting when I chose the format for this blog. I could go on and on about it, but that’s not really what this post is about, so let’s get to it! Back in the
