The Fialas Move In


My sister Chelsea texted me last week saying she was going to be in town for work and asked if she could stay the weekend. 

And she did.

Meadow wanted to have a sleepover with Chelsea and stayed with her in the guest room while she was here.

I made big pancakes for everyone for breakfast.

After breakfast Chelsea headed home. She wanted to beat the snowstorm coming and see her boys.

After she left Meadow helped me make granola.

Whenever she helps Brooke she seems way more helpful.

I found stickers hiding in one of our kitchen cabinets. Meadow got excited to use them all on one picture. "It's going to be beautiful!"

Leftover nacho toppings and chips are the best leftovers.

Then Tyler and Emma dropped off their kids while they finished some last things on their house.

I had spent the whole previous day helping them move their things into a storage unit. For the next couple of weeks they'll be staying with us while they find a tow vehicle for their long-term road trip.

Ring around the Brooke became a fun game. 

Before we had dinner I took the kids outside to play in the snow.

This has been a rare site this winter unless we went up to the cottage or up north.

Then we had the first of many double family meals.

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.
