Indefinite family travel – Why Not? Interview with Justin Mussler!

You can check out the The Great Family Escape at www.greatfamilyescape.com.

  • Sightsee if we want.
  • Swim if we want.
  • Shop if we want.
  • Exercise if we want. (we won’t!)
  • Spend most of the day trying to get last night’s curry to JUST PLEASE STOP ALREADY…….if we want!

You get the picture.

So there’s quite a bit of Continue reading

As I was cleaning the bathroom this afternoon I got to wondering how many more times I have to do it.  It was probably the bleach killing my brain cells that got me doing a loose tally in my head: once a week, 17 more weeks Continue reading
