So, to seize the moment, today I booked a ticket to visit my mom for her birthday. Even when things feel repetative, I'm going to push harder to learn something new, and enjoy the remaining 165 days of this project as best I can. I'll find more brands, new stores, and spread the word of buying American made!
On that note, today I noticed that the safety notice affixed to my truck's sun visor is proudly Printed in USA. I don't know if the whole visor is American made, but it's printed here. Also, here is the link to "Footskin" Shoes (http://footwearbyfootskins.com/), which look like comfy lounge shoes. Made in USA....of course.
