Morgan, Holidazzle and Road Trip Reminiscing

While driving back to Wisconsin my friend Morgan stopped at our house for a couple of days. Of course I made my hash for breakfast.

Someday we're going to open a breakast place called hashtag. We just have to wait for that term to become passe.

Meadow had some books that needed to be returned. Morgan happily tagged along.

We've been going to the Pierre Bottineau Library over in Northeast quite a bit recently.

Afterwards we brought Morgan over to secret Target. 

Today's stock wasn't very impressive. We did get Meadow some new boots at least.

I was hoping for sweaters, but nothing really fit right.

When we got home we ate leftovers from the potluck we had hosted the night before for our neighborhood organization.

We never have snacks in our house so whenever they're in our sight we over indulge.

Then we met up with Shannyn, Brent and Eleanor at the Hollidazzle Market in Loring Park.

It was rather boring, but the German ornament tent was cool.

They needed to have less food and more crafty vendors.

The items were impressive to look at. I kept Meadow's mittens on to keep her from touching everything.

I guess Germans put pickle ornaments in their trees.

I was going to ice skate with Meadow, but I wussed out since I was the only one in our group who wanted to.

Since Morgan didn't have skates I didn't want her to feel left out.

No snow and and ice free Loring Park Pond. What a weird December thus far.

There was an ice luminary booth at the Hollidazzle Market. Morgan was interested in the icy globes so at home I showed her how I make them with Bundt pans.

Before going to bed we drank a bunch of local brews and watched a slideshow from our road trip to Albaquerque years back.

It was fun to relive memories and always fun to have Morgan around.

Namekagon River Camping

Scott has been wanting to go canoe camping on the St. Croix for a few weeks. 
More like a few years. Brooke decided on the windier Namekagon River branch of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
We thought about going last weekend, but I was thinking it might be busy because of the 4th. 
We convinced Blake and Daniel to join us so we would have one car for drop off and one car for pickup. We met Blake at at the Riverside Landing, picked him up and met Daniel at our starting point at the County Road K Landing in Trego. 
Since we started in the evening we only went 5 miles before picking our campsite for the night. We chose campsite 29.7. Campsites are free and first come first served. 
It was a nicely wooded site but had lots of poison ivy.
We would find out that would always be the case. Basically don't venture into the woods.
We brought along Meadow's walkie talkie, which was perfect since we had two boats.
Theo's not used to being around other people quite yet. Also our camps…

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.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days.

I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard.



I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this.

I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Sunday mo…
