The weather has been frightfully cold. I know because I spent 20 minutes changing a flat tire this morning in a parking lot. Before you travel for Christmas or New Years, double check that your spare tire is in good shape, a jack, and tire iron are included and in working order. It is also a good idea to have a blanket in the car.
On a different topic, Shae and I enjoyed watching the movie The Company Men, starring Ben Affleck and Tommy Lee Jones. The movie follows several white collar workers who face downsizing during the 2008 financial crisis. It offers a great cautionary tale of living above one’s means.
Finally, after three and a half years, we have furnished all three bedrooms in our house with mattress sets and frames. The last acquisition was a $85 Craigslist bed frame made by the now defunct Cochrane furniture company.
