A Few Small Steps to Selling our House

Since today was going to be an all housework day we decided to do a picture an hour. Mostly because when we are working on something we forget to take pictures. 

8:19am I wake up first

9:21am I start cleaning the kitchen by doing dishes leftover from the day before.

10:23am Scott and Meadow finally wake up and make crepes.

It's been ages since we've made crepes, so why not.

11:24am I needed a haircut and beard trim before we cleaned up the bathroom.

I get back to decluttering and deep cleaning the kitchen.

Meadow watches tv.

12:31pm Still cleaning the kitchen.



Meadow gets herself some milk.

Scott finishes painting exterior trim.

After all these years, I finally have the exterior looking like I'd like it. One last coat on this window and we're ready to go.

1:33 pm Scott stands outside while Meadow plays in the yard.
Oh and Tyler is currently living in our driveway.

Actually I think I was painting the final coat of paint on the garage door.


I move on to deep cleaning the bathroom. Hello belly.

I wonder what could be in there.

2:35pm Meeting and signing papers with, Nate, our realtor. It's official this is really happening.

3:36pm Meadow and I drive to my work to get boxes for moving.

4:38pm Driving home with a car full of boxes. Meadow is back there somewhere.

5:41pm Meadow wraps up her markers in bubble wrap.

I move on to wiping down the hallway.

Scott cleans up the yard.

This is the first time I've weed whipped all year. With all of our road trips and house projects this summer we were lagging behind on yard work.

Leftover dinner break.

6:46pm Meadow makes forts with the boxes.

Scott finishes cleaning up the yard.

With not enough time to take pictures and rain was forecast for the rest of the week.

I move on to the guest room.

7:51 Meadow brushes her teeth.

We didn't' know what to do with this, so I found a how-to on painting and sealing a counter. The last remnant of our old yellow kitchen is gone.

8:54pm I do dishes again.

Scott puts Meadow to bed.

9:18pm I'm worn out. Early to bed. 
Good night Moon.

Eureka! It's Thanksgiving!

For the first time in 2 years we were able to head home for Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year that Scott isn't working retail. Especially with how ridiculously early stores are opening.  I'm thankful I'm working for myself . Luckily I had Wednesday off and Scott, well, he can have off whenever he wants. We made it out of the city with no traffic and came home in time for dinner.  I made that cake like 5 years ago in school (don't worry just the outside is real). I'm surprised my parents have still kept it even though its changing colors and covered in dust. Everytime we go to my parents house Scott always has to poke fun of my senior pictures. He's just jealous he didn't get to sit on a swing.  My mom had just gotten the upgraded version of Scott's phone. She had no idea how to use it, so Scott had to show her how. For the rest of the weekend I played the part of Geek Squad agent. Better than actually working at BBY.

Thanksgiving in the Valley

Thursday This year Brittany hosted Thanksgiving at her new house. We debated between going to Grand Rapids, Michigan (where my sister and mom live) and going to Little Chute (most of Brooke's family). With Grand Rapids being a 9 hour drive (no stopping), we opted for the 4 hour drive to her family. While getting ready for Thanksgiving I found these 30 plus year old German wines sitting in the garage. I guess they'd been sitting in Grandma Lungwitz's basement since then. We uncorked one of them for the night. I was all for it until my dad opened one and when I mentioned where it came from he made a face and exclaimed he would not drink it. My contribution for Thanksgiving this year was pumpkin shaped rolls. For the first time in 33 years we actually get to sit with the adults and the cousins were at the kids table. They were happy to have their own table. To our surprise Brooke's cousin Hayden showed up too. We always have a

Thanksgiving in Chicago with (Almost) the Whole Tuska Clan

Thursday After work on Wednesday we drove down to stay the night at Scott's parents house. When we arrived we learned the air mattress was already at Colin's place. Luckily we brought Meadow's travel toddler bed. Unfortunately that bed no longer stays inflated. We woke up, ate breakfast and drove the final 90 minutes to Chicago. For some reason I got the address wrong by a block. I stepped up to this modern home and thought aloud, "This can't be right." It turns out it was one more block to the east. When we arrived Meadow said, "We're here already?!" I guess she's not used to short drives. Then we found the right place. The story with their apartment is that the building was a single family home that started on fire. The inside was gutted after the fire and split into two units. Thank you Chicago for saving the building. While the food was being prepped we ate fancy meats and cheeses. My brother Colin was har
