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.

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

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

A Lovely Day

The time change didn't really affect me and I got up at my normal time. To Scott it meant sleeping in even later. While he was still asleep I worked on our meal planning and grocery list. Once I finally got up we were both ready to go grocery shopping. Brooke even had all the bags packed.   We tried to figure out somewhere to eat brunch. We had decided Bad Waitress when we remembered that the Lowry Cafe has breakfast and we hadn't been there in a long time. Brooke ordered the corned beef hash special. I got the mighty big Jordan breakfast. I was full for the rest of the day.  We mostly shop at the Seward Co-op even if it's halfway across town. Once the Lowry Bridge reopens we'll likely go to the Eastside Co-op more often. Via bike.  As always ,Brooke writes our dinner list on the chalkboard. According to Sprout Robot this week it's time to start tomato seeds. I like that their instructions come with little drawings.
