It's Damn Cold Outside

We had nothing planned for the day and it was below zero. I had no intention of going outside today yet had nothing to do inside. 

Even Peanut couldn't stand to look outside. It was that cold.

We looked at photos from last summer. I wish I was in Chicago and that it was summer right now.

I'm ok with winter, but when it's gets to 10 below, there's nothing to do but stay inside.

The only thing I had to do today was make baguettes.

Poolish baguettes that is.

Scott decided even though it's our day to do stuff together that he would rather not get dressed and edit photos instead.

I thought it would be better to be productive than sit around for the remainder of the day.

Our house feels so empty and less cozy when we take down the Christmas decorations. I've been slowly taking down a little bit everyday for 2 weeks. The real tree is the last to go.

I took off all the ornaments. Tomorrow I will take down the lights and eventually bring the tree outside to cut up in the spring.

Scott was still editing and I got bored so I took a nap.

This was right about the time I was finished. Now she didn't want to do anything.

I shaped the baguettes. Then Tyler and Emma asked if we wanted to come over for pizza and games. I really didn't want to go outside, but I was bored at home.

I really wasn't in the mood for Pair of Dice Pizza (we live in the hood, yo), but I also didn't have the ingredients necessary for anything quick.

After dinner Scott wouldn't stop talking about ice cream, which got us all craving some. While they put Olive to bed, we drove down to our favorite ice cream shop, Sebastian Joe's, to pick up a couple of quarts. With the temp being in the negatives we got 25% off. 

Deal of the century!

After a quick round of Creationary we battled it out in Catan again.

After a while we all had a sugar high from all the ice cream. I think this was the best game of Catan we've ever played.

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

  Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
