Brought to you by “I Actually Woke Myself Up by Licking My Blanket a Couple Nights Back.” Except it wasn’t cake in my dream. It was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Yeah, I don’t know. Sorry about the quick break! Last week got weird fast. But now, back to our regularly scheduled updates (hopefully)!
Looks like our walrus friend is doing pretty much what I wanted to all of yesterday – settling down for a much needed nap. Because after a long week, isn’t that what we all would want/need? Just to curl up under a blanket, surrounded by pillows, and doze the day away?
I mean, they’re not wrong. I do need a new mattress. Mine is literally falling apart at the seams. But why are these mattress ads so long? I mean, come on, man. I’m not going to watch a 5 minute ad before a 2 minute video. Seriously.
Think about it. The sweating. The heat. The allergies. The metric ton of annoying little bugs flying around. The amount of people that suddenly seem to pop up everywhere.

However, I’ve realized that there are a few problems – for me at least – that come with napping.… Continue reading Overnapping

The car has been unpacked for the final time, the AC is working overtime to cool down the house, and you’re actually sleeping in your own bed tonight. What more is there to be done? As it turns out, plenty. It’s time for the… Continue reading Drew’s Steps to Road Trips: Epilogue

It has been a ridiculously long day of driving. You’re all starting to nod off, when finally, you turn the corner to see that beautiful Best Western beaming down the block. You have reached your next destination: your hotel. Now, if you’ve planned accordingly, you’ve managed to already book a hotel/series of hotels prior to the trip… Continue reading Drew’s Steps to Road Trips: Hotels
It’s finally happening. You’re packed, prepped, and now off on your road trip. It’s time to talk about the most important and central part of this entire endeavor: the actual driving/riding in the car. First of all, there is the matter of the driver: the person whose job it is to actually get you all… Continue reading Drew’s Steps to Road Trips: Driving
