Dec 8 2007



I slept in today and I still got up before Scott.



I couldn't sit down to eat breakfast because the kitty was too busy going crazy.



Scott suprisingly gets up not too much later.



Scott has to go to school on a Saturday. Now he knows how I feel.



I go over to Cevonne's new place.



She hasn't finished unpacking yet.



She gets bored with that so she reads me a story.



She doesn't know where Olive Garden is so I show her.



After seeing how far away Olive Garden is she decides to apply at Buca which is much closer to where she lives.



It is so cold in her apartment so we make tea.



We try to fix the heater ourselves. Only 2 hours later does it decide to start working again.



Scott is finally done with school so we go pick him up.



We make dinner quickly before all the punks come over.



Cevonne wants to see what our house is like when there is a show going on so we wait until everyone arrives.



It's getting late. I call Ben who's in town to see what's up.



We go over to see Ben and Jordan.



Most of the night is spent looking up things on Ben's computer.



Cevonne and I listen patiently as the boys talk about computers.



Jordan works on her drawings.



Cevonne turns into cyclops.



Ben seems tired so we leave.



After dropping off Cevonne, Scott and I see a kitty digging in the garbage. We take him home.



We take the cat up to Savanah's room to feed him.



Later we introduce Hex to the new kitty which we named Cat Power.



Hex is literally a "scaredy cat" and hides under the bed.

After the new kitty breaks some dishes and bites Scott in the arm, I finally go to bed.

I told you my life was more interesting.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

Campervan Spring Break: Northern Iowa to Las Vegas, Nevada

Day 1: Minneapolis - Ozawkie, KS After last years awesome, but incredibly expensive San Francisco to Portland campervan vacation , I didn't think we'd be doing one of those again for years. But then Brooke had a work trip to Las Vegas and wanted us to tag along. That didn't quite work, but while researching a weekend campervan rental, I found a great relocation deal from northern Iowa to San Francisco during the kid's spring break. It didn't take much to persuade Brooke. Since our West Coast trip with  Escape Campervan 's we found out that almost all of the campervan and RV rental companies need vehicles moved from time to time. They often offer 90% or more off normal rental rates. But we didn't realize that every spring many of the campervan rental agencies also need vehicles moved from mostly Midwest factories to all over the USA and Canada. Lucky for us the Winnebago factory in Northern Iowa cranks out a bunch of rental vans. We had three proposed routes
