Some of you may have wondered what happen to the Pete the Planner blog. You may have thought that I was part of the Hollywood Writer’s Strike. You may have thought that I was on vacation. You may have though that I was lazy. You may have thought that I had run out of original material. Well, some of you are right.
I’m back and ready to spill my knowledge.
Here is what I have learned over my two week vacation.
- When people have nothing to do, spending money seems like a relatively good idea.
- I used a lot of cash during transaction, and ended up with an incredible amount of coinage.
- If you buy a tube of wrapping paper on Dec 23rd it may cost you $4.00. If you buy it on Dec 26th, it may coast you $.40.
- Bad sweaters are a timeless gift.
- Painting a room is an acquired skill, not something you randomly do on a Saturday
- If I had a dollar for every bowl game…
On a serious note. Did you do it? Did you speak the infamous phrase?
I made $______ this year, and we have nothing to show for it.

The blog is back and strong. Stay tuned for a great year.
