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.

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab
