House for Sale?

My early bird helper helping me prepare breakfast.

These two make getting up early a OK.

Lately Meadow has been waking up around 8:00.

Brooke thought she burnt the food. It turned out delicious.

She must think she's at the cottage.

We may be moving this summer, which means we have to get our house ready to sell. Our to do list is a lot longer than we originally thought.

We picked up a bunch of things to get the basement in better shape. According to the lead safe practices class I took I needed some thick plastic sheeting.

We also got basement wall paint, rubber baseboard and a few other things.

We didn't have any leftovers for lunch and we were all starving at Menards. So frozen pizza it is. 

The cardboard that came with the pizza turned out to be a bad tray.

 Once Meadow was down for a nap Scott and I got to work on the basement. We decided to work on one room at a time.

The first step was removing the old baseboard and vacuuming up any debris.

Meanwhile I started sorting through all the stuff we want to get rid of. My sisters want to do a rummage sale in the spring so I worked on pricing things. 

After spending all afternoon in the basement we made some veggie sushi.

I made some dessert sushi to finish off dinner. It's just a banana spread with peanut butter and rolled in rice krispies.

Meadow finished hers up while...


Mom watched her favorite show.

I had no idea you were thinking of moving. Do you know what area? Have you found something?

Our Wedding

Brooke and I aren't traditionalists. We didn't want to sit through a half-hour ceremony, but we also didn't think eloping was the answer. One thing that we did do was spend the night before the wedding in separate houses.   Even though Scott came with me to pick out my dress I still didn't want him to see me before the wedding. I had to keep one tradition. I woke up early to meet Brooke's dad at the Theodore Wirth Picnic Pavilion, only to find out that he was meeting me a couple hours later. I ended up getting most of the decorations over to the venue with my dad, sister and Dennis.  Scott had texted me in the morning, "I'm supposed to merry your dad right now right?". I was like, merry my dad? What he meant to type, but autocorrect corrected for him was meet.  Since Brooke came over to the venue to help, I spent most of the rest of the day with Blake, Colin and Olger. We ate some Pair of Dice Pizza and

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.
