Keep Me Like A Key I'm The Only One


Mother came up for a few days. It was her last spring break and she wanted to go somewhere. I don't know why. She's been on spring break for 22 years. It was nice in a way, she brought me food and bought me things. She is the only person that doesn't make me miss the company of others. Our personalities are so different, we have some things in common, enough to find things to do anyway. I just don't understand sometimes how she can be my mother. We went to IKEA where we spent most of our time in the childrens department where she picked out things I should buy my kids. She kept trying to get me to buy things for them now. I think she wants to be a grandma.

The passport company of america isn't on my best list right now. They need to figure things out better. "Let's pass a law so that you can't go to Mexico or Canada without a passport right before spring break. Oh great now we're working overtime and so many people are mad at us, wow what a great idea." I guess I shouldn't complain I did get my passport finally after trying to call them for 2 days and being on hold for 45 minutes. I was supposed to pay an extra 50 dollars, but I never got charged. Now I'm just more excited to go even though I have no money and I'm going to come back more broke than ever.

Our last day of class we talked about ice cream and got to try many different samples. Why can't all classes be this fun?

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 Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
