Summer Vacation Is Coming To An End

I've been pretty busy all week with many visitors. Zach, Ann, Jolene, and her boyfriend Adam came up last weekend. It's hard hanging out with them and not having money. I was glad to see them though since the last time I saw them was in June. It's nice that even though we didn't talk much the past few months things are still the same and conversations aren't akward.



Two days later Cevonne and Blake came up. Cevonne and I had plans to go see our favorite band and my future husband. When we got there (two hours late) we found that it was sold out. The ticket man said if we wait 10 minutes he might let us in. I thought it was fate that we finally made it in. Well, the opening band was just finishing and then Jesse walks out. Unfortunatly my husband got food poisoning and wasn't able to sing. Poor Cevonne drove 5 hours to see them.




I guess it was ok because we were getting really sick of all the 16 year girls pushing us. We made up for it by making Blake play Girl Talk with us.





Cevonne left early the next morning so it was just me and Blake.



I wish it was still warm out because I didn't know what to do. I took him to the mall. He caused a crowd at Lego Land.



I took him to his first college party. He was a paper knight.



I dropped him off in Chippewa Falls and now my house feels empty besides my roomates.



This weekend I'm either going to Chicago, Eau Claire, or home, I haven't decided yet. I'm staying at Menards, even though I hate it I'll be getting 2 dollars more an hour. Plus I don't really want to be working at the mall during Christmas.

I've done more knitting. I made a toy for our kitty.

I agree with the 10! I enjoyed it. And, I did not see this before I talked to you today...I wish I would have! I did not know that your concert was sold out, I did not know that you don't want to work at the mall anymore, and I did not know that all those people came to visit you! WOw...what a life! : ) Love you, bye for now...

Eureka! It's Thanksgiving!

For the first time in 2 years we were able to head home for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year that Scott isn't working retail. Especially with how ridiculously early stores are opening.  I'm thankful I'm working for myself . Luckily I had Wednesday off and Scott, well, he can have off whenever he wants. We made it out of the city with no traffic and came home in time for dinner.  I made that cake like 5 years ago in school (don't worry just the outside is real). I'm surprised my parents have still kept it even though its changing colors and covered in dust. Everytime we go to my parents house Scott always has to poke fun of my senior pictures. He's just jealous he didn't get to sit on a swing.  My mom had just gotten the upgraded version of Scott's phone. She had no idea how to use it, so Scott had to show her how. For the rest of the weekend I played the part of Geek Squad agent. Better than actually working at BBY.

Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house. We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family. While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night. I was all for it until my dad opened one and when I mentioned where it came from he made a face and exclaimed he would not drink it. My contribution for Thanksgiving this year was pumpkin shaped rolls. For the first time in 33 years we actually get to sit with the adults and the cousins were at the kids table. They were happy to have their own table. To our surprise Brooke's cousin Hayden showed up too. We always have a

Thanksgiving in Chicago with (Almost) the Whole Tuska Clan

Thursday After work on Wednesday we drove down to stay the night at Scott's parents house. When we arrived we learned the air mattress was already at Colin's place. Luckily we brought Meadow's travel toddler bed. Unfortunately that bed no longer stays inflated. We woke up, ate breakfast and drove the final 90 minutes to Chicago. For some reason I got the address wrong by a block. I stepped up to this modern home and thought aloud, "This can't be right." It turns out it was one more block to the east. When we arrived Meadow said, "We're here already?!" I guess she's not used to short drives. Then we found the right place. The story with their apartment is that the building was a single family home that started on fire. The inside was gutted after the fire and split into two units. Thank you Chicago for saving the building. While the food was being prepped we ate fancy meats and cheeses. My brother Colin was har
