House Remodeling and June's Bday

Another weekend home means I'm back to making fancy breakfasts.

I helped out by making some poached eggs.

Avocado on hasbrowns with Scott's poached eggs.

Added sprouts for the parents.

And hot sauce for papa. That's me.

After breakfast Scott and I went back to working on the house. While he is working on the upstairs bathroom I am working on skim coating the guest room ceiling.

Meanwhile Meadow did her own thing. Like coloring...

helping herself to the fridge and reading books.

She loves to just take apples out of the fridge without asking. I guess I can't get too mad.

Brooke used up the last of the ceiling paint.

After two days I patched the plaster around the toilet. Working with plaster of paris is a pain, but I'm gettting pretty good at it. Next time I might use DAP's wall patch variant of plaster.

Yay no more hole in the wall.

For lunch we had caramel corn.

Then we headed over to Emma and Tyler's for June's 3rd Birthday party. We were the first to arrive and Olive was really excited to show me her room that she now shares with June.


I forgot that Aaron and Roman were coming over. Meadow was happy, too.

Meadow showed off her acrobat tricks on the unicorn.

All the fun times.

June was super happy when singing Happy Birthday.

Birthday pie.

Yum.

Olive was feeling a bit under the weather. She wasn't as excited.

Aaron and I shared a second slice of pie. I know, we're precious.

Meadow and I shared too. We aren't as cute though.

Present time. This year we got June a gift card to REI since they plan on doing some traveling after their house is sold.

We got our first snowfall the other day and Meadow wanted to keep playing before going in.

We let her play while we made dinner. And that's all we wrote.

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

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

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.
