Starting Fresh in the New Year

Like many of you, our holidays tend to be busy with friends and family popping in, entertaining and general frivolity.

But Christmas is right on the heels of the busiest 3 months of the year, with extra long, stressful hours. We put off lots of daily office chores, errands, household and office needs or anything else that can be postponed. Our desks and offices are a mess with stacks of paper and we are exhausted.

Car Shopping

Our beloved Subaru Forester got totaled couple weeks ago. In the pre-dawn hours someone hit our parked car, pushing it 40 feet into our neighbors front yard, then fled the scene. Police were called along with a tow truck.  Our Foresters Transmission was shredded, frame bent and the 4-wheel drive train was shot. Thank God for insurance. Once again we have to take time out to hunt for car.

Like Pulling Teeth

So many brands, particularly higher end are very protective of their image…. Or branding. Very understandable, logical and necessary on their part. I have no problem at the retail level.

But then, like all manufacturers they have overstock, overruns or samples they need to unload and that’s when they seek me out.  I ask them questions they don’t want to answer.

Fun With Hubby

Filed Under: Shopping Adventures

I normally shop and do store research alone.  It’s faster, more efficient and I can stay better focused. But, lately I’ve been taking my husband with me when I research. Web dude is a really funny guy.
