I decided to bring back the photo diary. I enjoy looking back at the posts to see how I used to live my life.



As winter goes on the lazier I get on Sundays. Scott is worse then me, he is still in bed after I get up.



Scott had breakfast when we went out on Saturday to Mickey's. So we have brownies instead.



Just kidding. I have steel cut oats and a banana. I eat out of the pot to save on dishes.



Scott has chips and salsa.



Our shower has been broken for 2 weeks, this time the handle broke off.



We finally get dressed. It's warmer out in Minnesota so no long sleeved shirt today.



First we install our new doorbell.



Good thing there's an app for that.




Yay!



We head over to our local Menards. The store is closing so everything is super cheap.



We load up on things we might need.



We stop at a vintage pop up shop. It's the last day and everything is half off.



Then we head over to Home Depot for things Menards didn't have. Some &#$% stole our cart that had my reusable bag in it. I try not to get too upset in hopes that the person who took it used it for their purchases instead of a plastic bag.



We bought a bunch of seeds for our garden. I can't wait for spring.



We make dinner, aka breakfast.



Spinach and eggs. It looks like a mess but it was tasty.



I end the night by making chocolate heartlettes in honor of valentines tomorrow.

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
