That's The Way We Get By

It seems like everytime I go somewhere I don't want to return back to Minneapolis, I always seem to be leaving something that I love. It was nice to get away from my usual repeative schedule that I have every week. I love that vacation feeling, even if it is only 2 days long. Chicago is the new Minneapolis. I remember how excited I was to go to the cities and I couldn't wait to move there. Now I can't wait to move to Chicago. I think I get bored with things too easily.



We made a long cold trip across the city of Chicago to get my wallet. I wouldn't have even known it was the super bowl if I hadn't gone down this weekend. The whole city was pumped for the Bears, people were literally running everywhere to see the kickoff. I played wii for the first time. It just made me miss playing golf, which made me miss summer. It didn't take many pictures this weekend because it was so gosh darn cold.



Things have been good otherwise. I really like school. I know I talk about it a lot, but for once I'm actually learning things that apply to my life. I don't remember anything I learned in English or math. I eat healthier and read nutrition labels. C'mon how many classes have you taken where your assignment was to make these.



I finally bought my ticket to London, it's not all talk anymore I'm actually going for real. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

My dad bought me darkroom equipment. I can't wait to start developing my own pictures. I've been wanting to do so for so long.

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Hunt for a Perfect Vintage Airstream

  So the Fialas had been staying at our place going on two weeks. Tyler had bought the SUV, but he was waiting on the title to show up in the mail from the bank in South Dakota.  So, what would you do if your hunting for the perfect Airstream? Well, he decided, after nearly buying one near the Twin Cities, to broaden his search. He asked me one night, probably during a game of Madden, if I wanted to tag along to look at a 31 foot Airstream with the coveted rear bedroom setup in Algoma, Wisconsin. I told him I'd tag along, as long as we were going to come home with an RV. Scott mentioned he was going with for the day.  I jokingly said to make sure they are back before Wednesday.  The yearned for rear bedroom Airstream was a bit more ragged than he anticipated. While he looked it through and through, I checked out the  Airstream Classics collection of very rare and sometimes strange Airstreams. I really dug this tiny stove in a 50s vintage. Af
