Is It Snowing In Space?

Today while I was sitting in my boring cost control class we find out there is a tornado warning. What do they have us do? Take all our things with us before leaving the room and have us sit in the stairway (my class is on the 4th floor). I should be lucky to be alive. The funny thing was watching everyone immediatly get on their cell phones to tell their friends that they were trapped in a stairway.

So this new job that I have been talking about, yea funny story. First of all they wanted me to wear khaki's haha, who wears khaki's anymore I mean seriously. The only ones I could find were at Kohl's that were super tight and flared out at the bottom. So I thought, why the heck am I even doing this, I know I'm going to hate the job and they are going to make me work crappy hours, oh yea they made me promise I'd work every Saturday evening in the summer ha. In my panic to find a new job fast I resorted to craigslist where I found several jobs and e-mailed all of them. I was lucky enough to get a response right away. After deciding when to set up an interview we told each other what we looked like and what we'd be wearing. Even the interveiw felt like a first date, we met at a bakery where we sipped coffee and talked about ourselves. By the end I had a new job. I am a maid for rich people. The great thing is the lady who hired me doesn't take taxes out of the paycheck. The clients actually leave you a check when you go to their house. The first house we went to was beautiful and time just flew by. On the other hand Dollar Thrifty wasn't too happy. Since they have this fear of calling people I got this e-mail.



Other than that we're getting 3 new roomates this fall. One including Scottie who comes home soon. I feel like a little kid counting down to Christmas, except this present will be better. Our house is posessed with ghosts, just ask Julia.



But our basement may be a new venue.



And I've picked up knitting again, it helps keep from doing homework. I'm back to Scott's sweater which I'll hopefully finish by this winter.

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
