2011 Better Late Than Never



 While looking through previous posts I'd written in the past I remembered how I used to make best and worst lists of the previous year. I thought I would do that again. Even if it's a month late.

Best of 2011 
1. Marrying the love of my life.
2. Getting a whole week off for vacation.
3. Cheesefest and Door County
4. Having 2 of my closest friends become new moms.

Worst of 2011
1. Witnessing a tornado. Something I hope to never experience again.
2. Not being able to go to California with Scott.
3. Spending all our holidays here without family. Although Freaster and Friendsgiving were fun.
4. Scott having to work Sundays.
5. Waiting many months for our freezer.
(There really wasn't many bad things this year)


Things I Look Forward to in 2012
1. A real honeymoon?
2. Going to Chicago for Scott's sisters wedding.
3. Joining our first CSA.
4. Camping in summer
5. Becoming a better bread baker.

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.
