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.

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

A Lovely Day

The time change didn't really affect me and I got up at my normal time. To Scott it meant sleeping in even later. While he was still asleep I worked on our meal planning and grocery list. Once I finally got up we were both ready to go grocery shopping. Brooke even had all the bags packed.   We tried to figure out somewhere to eat brunch. We had decided Bad Waitress when we remembered that the Lowry Cafe has breakfast and we hadn't been there in a long time. Brooke ordered the corned beef hash special. I got the mighty big Jordan breakfast. I was full for the rest of the day.  We mostly shop at the Seward Co-op even if it's halfway across town. Once the Lowry Bridge reopens we'll likely go to the Eastside Co-op more often. Via bike.  As always ,Brooke writes our dinner list on the chalkboard. According to Sprout Robot this week it's time to start tomato seeds. I like that their instructions come with little drawings.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s
