My husband has had the same car for the last 10 years; it’s a 1996 Toyota Corolla. He’s a mechanic so it’s well maintained and the thing just keeps. on. driving. He refuses to sell it (something about gas mileage) and is determined to drive it till it absolutely can’t drive no mo. #frugal
It’s August and I have the canning bug. I’ve wanted to can for a long time but considering my old kitchen had a useable counter space of about 30 inches (yep, 30 inches) I literally had no where TO can.

We’re following the Classical model of education which I believe to be the most clear-cut and time-tested form of education there is (that’s just my opinion, there are other great models too).
When we were inspecting our new trailer during the Are-we-really-gonna-buy-this-thing stage, we immediately noticed that the AC unit would have to be replaced. We knew the heat didn’t work because the reversing valve was stuck, but exactly when the AC would go out was anybody’s guess.
