227 All for You
Mom has court issues, a grandbaby’s birthday, and Phill has some news after a business trip. He then goes on a trip to the hospital. Mom was looking at potential man trouble and finds that internet dating is full of weirdos and married men. She even questions if a man would even fit into her life at that point. But bike rides with friends, little road trips, and fun events (including seeing the Air Force Thunderbirds) kept her busy.

The love life took a turn for the better when Mom meets a new guy. The family gets together to see Mat's latest play and Phill heads to Alaska for a business trip. Enjoy!

224 One More Day
Mom has an unexpected meeting with a very old friend, like “pre-kids” old. She gets to see her grand-babies and hopes big Mat can show up too. He has a bike she wanted to take home. She gets done with that trip and is worn out from the wild grand-babies. Money was still tight but she continued to get settled into her new place.

223 Love Don't Cost a Thing
Everyone was traveling! Mat went to Mom's. Mom went to the coast (and Moe's), then to Reno for a quick trip, and finally to the ER, boo. There's an update on the job search and her living situation might change. Phill's living situation did change, putting the final nail in the coffin his first marriage was in. Mom was planning to go see him. There were continuing budget issues too, but she kept her spirits up dreaming of a Harley. Oh, and technical difficulties with the end of this one. Enjoy!

222 Hanging by a Moment
Well, no more nail salon. Grandma comes to Boise for a visit. Mom and cats make the big move. The job hunt was still ongoing and Mom was worried. A nice Christmas came and went, as well as a New Year’s Eve party. She was still dreaming about getting a Harley but was also doing pretty well in the practical stuff too. She nailed a test for a state job that led to a letter to set up an interview. Mat got a part in a movie (sort of) and had his 25th birthday. Phill tells Mom his wife is moving out and she starts to worry about the babies.

221 Just Another Day in Paradise
Having a cold sucks. Having one while moving in the snow sucks more. But the packing must continue! A little bit of politics about the Bush v Gore election, odd how that correlates to the latest news, eh? 4-Runner go boom. At least it was going in the bankruptcy anyway. Phill has his 26th birthday so Mom took a trip for that and to see the grand-babies on Thanksgiving. Oh, and there was an error that Phill made in an earlier episode that he corrects here. Enjoy!

220 Independent Women
Happy Birthday Mat! 45, but only because you have no choice. We all know you’re an eternal 12 year old ;-) There was lots of packing as plans fell into place for Mom’s move, with the cats. The impact of another “restart” is apparent but she had friends to help and job interviews to take. Plus, cell phones were the newest rage, might as well get one, right? Check out phillipcornwell.com/baking for the Hot Toddy recipe he knows. Enjoy!

A lot of things were getting ready to change. Mom was packing and had someone interested in the condo. She was also trying to live in an RV because of her cats. Cat mom life strikes. She was just counting the days until her move at this point. The patent idea was starting to take root and Mom was dreaming of the money. She was even selling Phill on the idea of being a rich bum. Enjoy!

218 Most Girls
Hey! That baking page is finally live on phillipcornwell.com. Check it out if you like cookies and WordPress. Well, Mom’s bankruptcy was filed and she was giving up the 4-Runner and the condo. She starts researching her patent idea and then gets more motivated about it. She also looks into Mary Kay. Is there a pink Caddy in her future? And whatever you celebrate, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND NEW YEAR! Because regardless of what other holidays we celebrate, we’re ALL gonna celebrate the end of 2020!!

217 That’s the Way
Another grand-baby birthday to celebrate! The bankruptcy looks to be a go, maybe Oprah can help? Mat was in Eugene and Phill’s divorce had him contemplating Portland. Mom was still planning on moving to Oregon, maybe getting all three back in the same area? A really cool vest was given to Mom too. Then the next “big” thing to start in our lives, The Patent. Let’s see how it goes. Enjoy!

216 Doesn't Really Matter
Hey, let's start with a Mat telling a long story (it's worth it ;-) ). Then Phill recaps his relationship and how being a bit of a hacker related to that. Mom relates to his situation. She talks about a bike trip she took to Montana. Her and a friend also plan a trip to Canada. She also decides to move back to Oregon, she's behind on her house payment and may be in trouble. And to end it, let's hear another story from Mat about his roommates at the time (this one's worth it too).

215 Try Again
We talk about adding a baking page to phillipcornwell.com, it's not up yet, but it will be soon. Speaking of good desserts, check out the Dream Torte recipe on our Facebook page. In the Journal, Mom and Phill are okay again but money stress and loneliness are getting her to a breaking point. Great time for a quick trip to Mexico! Oh, and an old friend pops up. Does anyone remember the Rainbow vacuum?
32 minutes | 3 months ago
There was a bit more fallout about the Journal. We stop and go over that a bit. Mom met a man that was filling her free time and she had an unexpected guest. Money was still tight but she had some coming in and a ski trip was planned. Mat talks about getting AOL disconnected at the time. Then, Mom took a break from the Journal for a bit and explains what happened.

In this dramatic episode, we recount how we managed to overcome and ultimately succeed after the Y2K tragedy. Mat has a birthday and a law school friend has a baby.

212 Tis the Season
Sorry for the long intro, again. We go off-topic a bit too ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Mom was feeling the holiday blues being short on cash and a house payment coming due. She ends up taking on a side gig to make ends meet. Big gifts for Christmas and Mom unexpectedly finds an old letter that helps her feel some closure about things.

209 Something Like That
Getting cozy in the condo and more family buying property. Contemplation on life and an evaluation at work. Did she cross a line? Biker Boy is back and she calls another boy. Top all that off with sick days and potential financial irresponsibility!
25 minutes | 4 months ago
Condo! Cabo! Wedding bells? Just kidding! There is a wedding in this one though... Biker boy is out again and another flame is in again. Concern over her schoolwork is causing stress. Enjoy!
