Family Rooms

Family Rooms

This may sound weird when you’re single but when you have kids, especially young ones, bathrooms in public places take on added importance in your life. It becomes a deciding factor in where you go or how long you should stay. Call me neurotic, but when you have kids who immediately have to use the potty as soon as you get anywhere (sometimes before you even get there), it becomes very important that you have access to a clean restroom….

Staycations

Staycations

Speaking of summer vacations and touch economic times, gas prices once more rose over the Memorial Day weekend. This morning, I passed by a station posting $2.49/gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. It’s looking more like a ‘staycation’ is in store for us this summer. Staycation means staying close to home. It means finding ways to occupy ourselves and entertain ourselves without having to spend a lot of money. It may also mean that the girls will have to find part…

The Delta Soup is Spoiled

The Delta Soup is Spoiled

Trent at The Simple Dollar asked, Does one bad experience spoil the soup? He is referring to our adverse reaction to certain brands or establishments as a result of one unpleasant experience that we pretty much boycott the product altogether. That reminded me of all the whining I’ve been doing lately about the inconvenience of traveling nowadays. I whined about the higher prices, the luggage, the extra fees, I whined about the delays. But you know what, I think most…

Travel Easy With Cabin Cuddler

Travel Easy With Cabin Cuddler

As much as I love to travel, I haven’t had an easy time liking the airlines this year. Not only are we paying more, we are also getting less service for our money. For instance, curb side check-in. This used to be a nice convenience to be able to drive up, check your bags in and go right up to the gate. I always appreciated the service so I always tipped the sky caps. This year, I found out they…
