66. Appreciate People

When I was single, I would go on a lot of road trips, with friends or most of the time by myself. I have camped in sand dunes, explored caves, hiked through canyons, walked through a meteor crater, and explored many a state park. It made me happy to be able to go out in […]

Okay, the real story behind the three dehumidifiers mentioned in the previous post: this summer we got a lot of rain, making it humid outside the house, and that humidity built up all inside the house as well.

40. The quest of dehumidifiers

Over the summer my husband decided that our house was too humid and bought a dehumidifier. He liked it; I didn’t care. Then he decided to get another one to get rid of all the leftover humidity. He liked it; I was mildly annoyed. Then he decided to get another one and move two of […]

37. Organized Plant Chaos

My husband loves plants. He loves plants so much, that while I was at work one evening, he went and bought a ridiculous number of fruit trees that we ended up planting over the weekend. Then it was more fruit trees. Then it was more roses. Then it was blueberries and other fruit bushes. Then […]
