Another Weekend of Halloween Fun

The weekend before Halloween means its Meadow's friend Eleanor's birthday party. This year it was all My Little Pony themed. The kids got to decorate their own unicorn horn.


I asked Meadow what she wanted to be for Halloween last August. She wanted to be a fairy again. I eventually convinced her to be a butterfly. Then two days before the party she decided on being Wonder Woman.

We had a Rainbow Dash (color run) outside for the kiddos.

Meadow opted out of the race.


All the other kids had a blast.


Running while holding hands with friends was more fun for Meadow I guess.

With Scott having to work Meadow and I biked over to their house. I just love biking with her.

Back at home Meadow wanted to make a party hat out of paper. Since we put away most of her toys to keep the house clean Meadow has become very creative. She's always wanting to create things or draw.

I got home just in time to see her creating the party hats.

A party hat for Teddy.

Always around this time year I start wanting to get more into crafting. I decided for a Christmas gift for Meadow I'm going to attempt to make her a dress. We headed to my favorite fabric store, SR Harris.

Without telling Meadow what it was for, I asked her to pick out some fabric. She kept going across the aisle to the sparkly fabric.

For some reason going to SR Harris is fun. It's such a colorful mishmash of fabrics and people from every walk of life.

It's also a bit overwhelming when trying to decide on a color or pattern.

We finally settled on a blue linen fabric.

A yard of fabric, some elastic and buttons this dress only cost me $4.00.
As long as I don't screw it up of course.

Afterwards we headed to the Brooklyn Park Library a few blocks away.

We needed to kill some time before our next adventure.

We were going to BareBones once again to see their spooky puppet theater. First we needed to get dinner. Meadow wanted falafel, so we ended up at Shish on Grand Avenue.

Meadow did say she wanted falafel.

But she mostly ate her pita bread. She's not been too into eating dinners recently.

I had hoped to get to BareBones early enough to grab seats, but we missed out again and had to stand in the back. Little did we know we would see this skeleton again soon.

Brooke and I took turns holding Meadow. Eventually they got a seat near the end of the show.

Once we got home Meadow and I cozied up to her new books before bed.

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

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

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
