Challenge: 24 Hours – No Complaints

It’s challenge time again. Last time, many of you took part in the 100-hour outdoor challenge. This time, it is a much shorter, yet possibly more difficult proposal. I challenge you to not complain about anything for 24 hours.

Multitasking is Hard

Ever forgot multiple things at the grocery store because you were talking on the phone while shopping?

The No Regrets Road Trip

This is a follow-up to the original post on our road trip to Florida. That post broke down the costs and savings of our trip. This post covers the “why” of our trip.

We wanted to head down to Florida to see my parents during our vacation this year. As teachers, we are very limited on when we can go away. Basically, the only time we can go away is when the rest of Massachusetts Continue reading...
