Have you ever had a storage unit? Have you ever had five at the same time?! During this adventure, we actually had five, yes 5, storage units at one point. One reason was that there were only a few units available and the sizes were kind of small so we needed more of them to … Continue reading Applied Physics Lesson
It's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kinda heavy... Ok, I'm probably dating myself with that song. No matter. If you heard the song in your head, let it play and dance!

The man who makes it possible for us to spend time together in the evenings and on the weekends because he gets all of the yardwork, housework, cooking, … Continue reading All. The. Overwhelm.
