June 30, 2021 – The not-so-little black stove.

I have a story to tell about a ‘not-so-little black stove’ that has resided in our home nearly as long as we have. This is not a tall tale, to be sure; however, it’s a rather long tale, as that stove has been in our lives for nearly 7 years without ever reaching its fullContinue reading “June 30, 2021 – The not-so-little black stove.”

June 18, 2021 – The list keeps growing!

Sigh. It’s not as if the ‘list’ isn’t long enough already, but I keep finding more stuff to add. I just keep thinking that whoever walks through our front door as a prospective buyer, I want to knock their socks off! I still have yet to finish painting most of the interior doors (in ourContinue reading “June 18, 2021 – The list keeps growing!”

June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed

Let me tell you, I knew that once we made up our minds to move, the momentum would pick up, but this is ridiculous! In the last two days, I have completed more tasks around my house than I have in the last two years. Why the hurry? Oh my gosh, we had the firstContinue reading “June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed”

May 11, 2021 – When it sounds too good to be true.

My poor husband. Last week, I was the one in turmoil. This week, it’s his turn. As part of his routine, he gets on the computer and checks Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and the local classifieds (on average) 2-6 times each and every day. He is on the search for the ‘perfect boat’. Immediately after weContinue reading “May 11, 2021 – When it sounds too good to be true.”

April 21, 2021 – Boating Adventures

Life is full of surprises. My husband and I bought our first boat in 2015. Boy, did we get fleeced! It’s not the first time we’ve been taken advantage of because we didn’t do our homework and were totally unprepared. With most purchases, especially the ‘big ones’, I research the hell out of them beforeContinue reading “April 21, 2021 – Boating Adventures”

November 7, 2020 – Buyer Beware

The meaning of words can be very subjective, depending on who you ask. This is especially true when you’re trying to describe the condition of something. What one person might deem as ‘excellent’ may only qualify as ‘fair’ to someone else. There is one place on the internet where I find this to be aContinue reading “November 7, 2020 – Buyer Beware”

October 5, 2020 – You’ve gotta love dogs.

I started out as a cat person. I absolutely l-o-v-e-d cats. Have you heard of the saying, “I love you to death”? Well, I do admit that at some point in my childhood, I may have ‘realized’ that saying in the worst possible way. I must first clarify that it was purely unintentional. If itContinue reading “October 5, 2020 – You’ve gotta love dogs.”

October 2, 2020 – Craigslist or Bust

Need a job, or looking for rental property, or maybe you want to purchase or sell a car? One word, Craigslist. It’s also a great site to check out if you need a laugh. I have come across so many unusual things that have completely baffled my mind, I cannot even begin to tell you!Continue reading “October 2, 2020 – Craigslist or Bust”
