Born to travel

September 6, 2014

There are good things and bad things about traveling.

Traveling should be easy, a good experience, but for some reason before we begin and after returning we, the travel-ee, feel exhausted and confused in both body and mind to the point we’re moved to ask if it was worth leaving.

August 30, 2014

You might have heard about an incident last weekend on a United Airlines flight from Newark to Denver.

The plane had to be diverted to Chicago after two passengers – a 47-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman – got into a heated argument. The woman tossed a glass of water in the man’s face.

Buying a house not for the timid

August 30, 2014

We put our house on the market a few months ago.

Listing the house was extremely difficult with three dogs, a cat and two children. But we did it anyway.

We found a house that we fell madly in love with, and it was worth it to us to try to sell ours to buy it.
