Why my husband loves his Man Van!

My husband has never been a “pick up guy!” He does, however, love being able to move large items from time to time. We don’t rent pick ups, or borrow, we simply use our van. It’s a Chrysler Town and Country and all of the seats tumble down flat. With the seats tumbled, he can […]

Buying a house from the Best of the Best!

Buying a house is a big stressor for some. Steve and I weren’t even looking when we found our current home. Seriously! A neighbor down the street told us about it and we peeked online and liked what we saw. Next thing I knew, we were putting an offer on it. The market in North […]

Five Car Conversations to have with kids

Some of the best conversations with my kids have happened in the car. I’m not sure what it is about being in the car, but there is some sort of parallel conversation that takes place. I’m not sure if my kids feel “stuck” or trapped and just share and talk because of that, or if […]

Keeping Your Van Clean with Kids

It’s almost totally impossible to keep a vehicle clean when you have kids.  When we first got our van, I said I would not allow my kids to eat or drink in it, thinking that would keep it clean. That worked for a few months, but then we hit the holidays and needed to travel […]

Work vs Fun Car

When you are shopping for a new car, you always have to consider what your plans are for that vehicle. If you are buying it for fun, you might look for features that are not common to everyday rides. However, if you are looking to purchase for work only, you might consider only looking at […]
