Oh Homeownership

Our morning ritual of Meadow and I making breakfast while Scott sleeps in. 

We haven't had bagel and egg sandwiches in a long time so I put it on the menu this week.

These are always a good quick breakfast.

This is Meadow's favorite place in the whole house.

She thinks she's a cat. She drags her chair all the way from the dining room to the front window. It's probably a good thing we never got around to refinishing the floors.

Since our main floor bathroom is still under construction that means no bath for Meadow. I filled up our kitchen sink and she refused to go in.

She got a shower instead. Every time I give her a bath she points to her towel and says, "Baby!" I then wrap her up, rock her and sing, "Oh, Mama's little baby." It's the one time she lets me hold her like this so I enjoy the moment. 

I had to prime and paint the bead board we're putting in the bathroom.


Meanwhile Meadow refused to get dressed so she helped me change our sheets. 

By helping I mean we made forts.


We did this for awhile.

Then she wanted to get tucked into bed.

For lunch we had zucchini and bacon pasta.

After I put Meadow down I started painting the ceiling in Scott's office/our closet. 

I put a few coats of paint on the side that is going behind the radiator.

The night before I went to Aldi (since it's so close) and picked up pretzels and chocolate chips. We've been eating the resulting pretzel-chocolate chip cookies all day.

Meadow has been extra clingy lately. I suspect she's teething. I needed to finish pricing stuff for the rummage sale and the only way to get it done was to put her in the Ergo.

"Make your moves,"said Scott giving us directions while taking photos.

After working on the bathroom for a few hours I made Morroccan-Spiced Pastitsio. I love this dish while Brooke thinks it's overindulgent.

It started to snow after dinner so Meadow and I went outside to play in the fresh snowflakes. We even went around the block on the sled. I love this little bug.

I tried to catch them after doing dishes. I followed their tracks all the way around the block and they were already inside when I caught up.

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

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
