Dear Diary,


We were up late the night before and I worked a lot this week so I needed to sleep in today. Don't judge me.



I do my "homework" right away so I don't have to worry about it later.



Scott thinks this is a good idea too.



I didn't do dishes last night after dinner so I'm stuck doing them this morning.



Scott makes breakfast. He pulls out all our options for fillings.





Aebleskivers, bananas, and hot tea.



The floor is overdue for a sweeping.




A week before we moved into our house we noticed a dent in our car. A month ago we finally got a quote on how much it was going to cost to get fixed. When we found out it would be $800 dollars we decided to try to fix it ourselves. This is our second suction cup. The first one just scratched the paint. This one would work if it could catch on a flat surface. Maybe we'll try again another day.



We have lunch at Ikea. The meatballs are the only thing I can handle eating there.




We shop for new curtains and other things for the home. We almost bought the light on the right before we realized that although it was a good price it was too generic for us.




We go across the street to the MOA. Scott needed a new shirt for work. Which we didn't end up finding.




Next we head over to Target to get a curtain rod. Ikea didn't have one big enough to cover our windows. We looked at rugs too.



We go home to make dinner heat up our leftovers.



We also got more candles.



Jambalaya, breakfast burritos and a Lift Bridge Chestnut Hill beer.



We work late putting up our new curtains.



We'll finish with the pullbacks tomorrow.

Good Night.

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

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Two Years As Homeowners

I have to admit, being a homeowner is hard. There are a million things I want to do with this house. The two things that are keeping me from doing those things are money and time. I hate when people use the excuse "I don't have time" because really you do, you just put what you think are priorities first.  Were also not the handiest people. I have many projects waiting for the help of my dad. Like sanding our floors. I've never done anything like it before so it scares the crap out of me to try it. I can only hope that a year from now things will look a lot different and that I can maybe get a few things that I'd like to see done, get done.  And with that here are some progress photos from the last 2 years.  Our closet 2010 2012 2010 2012 Upstairs bathroom 2010 2011 2012 I hope this is finished before next year.
