Pro Bowl!

By the title of the blog you know what I am going to be doing tonight. While it is not like the Super Bowl at least it is football. I am sad that I only have tonight and next Sunday and then football season will be over. That means I don't have anything to watch on Saturday (college ball), Sunday, Monday night, or Thursday night. Oh well, guess I'll just have to start reading a lot again.

Right now I'm waiting for my dinner to cook - individual pizzas. Dan has already had his and mine is in the convection oven. Simple tonight, but then it's football night in the Mihlfeld household.

I got all the laundry done today - so once again we are caught up. I did two loads in the laundromat and one here in the unit ($4.00 total). You know I'm going to miss this cheap laundry - but then again, when we get to Georgia we won't have to pay for laundry (that's one of the things we get for working). It is hard for me to think that we will be in GA in just three weeks - which means the "Great" adventure is getting closer. Dan is so excited about this trip - we looks and looks at the map and the Milepost that we have. He doesn't want to make any definite "schedule" but I would like to at least have an idea of where we are going each day - I know that we don't want to make a 'hard and fast' schedule - but I wouldn't mind one that is written in "sand" instead of "concrete".

I also got the financial stuff done today - YEAH! Balanced the checkbook -paid the bills for February - and was even able to put a little in savings. Even with the cruise we did much better this month than we have done since we started this little adventure - and part of that has to do with eating at home all the time. We spent a total of less than $100.00 all month on eating out - and that includes Denny's the other day. That is something for us. Plus we only filled up the truck three times all month - $205. in fuels for the truck - amazing!!! We only spent a little over $2,500 this month (including lot rent). Not too bad! Now, if we can just repeat that this month it would be amazing! We will just have to try and continue to do what we did this month - other than the cruise (wish we could do another cruise, but no this again - plus we had paid for it in November, so it was not included in this months total.)

Well, I'm going to go eat my pizza now and watch the football game. Hope you guys have a good week this coming week - those of you that are in cold country - try and stay warm - those of you that are in the rain - try and stay dry - those of you that have both - well, you know what to do.

I'll talk to you tomorrow!!!!


  1. Perhaps I missed it. Where are you going to in Georgia? Inquiring minds want to know. I'm sure jealous of you, being able to go to Alaska and all, but I don't envy you the long drive across Canada. Enjoy! (I hope)

  2. Thanks Dennis - we will be at Unicoi State Park outside Helen, Georgia (in the north GA mountains) from the 28th of February to the 28th of April. We'll be working as campground hosts. I'm not sure about that drive across Canada either - but it should be an adventure!


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
