Lose 5 lbs on a Staycation

So I’m thinking I need to take a vacation – and I need to lose some weight.  Why can’t I combine the two?  I don’t really need to go anywhere to make this happen so I can save money on air travel (the airports are so crazy these days anyway). 

It would be nice to learn more about Portland and the things I can do here – for fun and to lose weight.  I could also use a refresher of things I should eat that are more figure friendly.  So I created this Staycation (I wanted to call it a Fat Farm Destination, but who would go?).

Why are washcloths so big?

Really.  I’m trying to just wash my face and this thing is huge.  When it’s wet and you’re over the sink it just gets all over the place.  Maybe I’m just doing it wrong.  Is there a washcloth class?  I think it should be about 1/4 the size so it fits easily in your hand.  Not too stiff, not too flimsy.  If you want to dry your face with a full-sized wash cloth, well fine.  The smaller wash size will take less soap and less space in the washer – eco-friendly!

Buy a new car? Gas prices to hit $4?

So do I buy a new car or live with the bad gas mileage.  If I get a car with 35 miles to the gallon instead of 13, prices go to $4/gallon, and I drive closer to 12,000 miles a year I can almost buy a car for $200/mo and be better off. While I have low mileage and it’s only about 7 years old… it is out of warranty and little things are starting to happen.  Is it time?
