Morning Sushi and a Cold Stroll Down St. Anthony Main

After our dessert sushi last week I thought it would be fun to have breakfast sushi.

The rice krispies, bananas and peanut butter made a repeat appearance.

I had Scott make a couple crepes to use as the nori. 


I made a few different varieties. The ones that had peanut butter fillings rolled up a lot better. Wish we had gotten Nutella.

Meadow and I had a chopstick fight after we were finished.

We debated on going ice skating since this weekend was the last that rinks were open. Instead we decided to take a walk around St Anthony Main.

We might be moving to this area this summer.

We wanted to check out the parking situation. I think it will work for us.

Despite it being sunny and in the 30's the wind made it feel really chilly.

Meadow decided to hitchhike along Main Street.


One of the reasons we're thinking of moving is that we miss living in a walkable neighborhood. I love biking, but it would be great to go outside and be within a stone's throw of parks, restaurants and everything that comes with that.


Meadow wanted to sit here all day.

Once we got home Meadow was really interested in my braid.

Naptime means more working on the house.

I'm reglazing and painting all of the basement windows. I've been at it for the last week. This was my last window that needed glazing.

Meadow has gotten so quick with doing puzzles lately. She's going to need some more challenging ones soon.

We had refried bean tostadas with pickled red onions, cabbage and avacados.

After all the house work and a homemade dinner we were pooped.



But I had the 2 hour season finale of Downton Abbey to watch. Since it was my night to put Meadow to bed she got to stay up and watch with me.

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

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

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
