Our Last Saturday at the House on Queen Avenue

I had realized the other day that this will be our last weekend in this house. Also my last breakfast with Scott and Meadow here.

Don't worry, we'll have plenty of breakfasts at our new digs.

Meadow and I still have lingering colds so we had a smoothie with our breakfasts.

This kid really likes smoothies. It's like one of ten foods that she consistently eats.

I thought I was going to be making crepes this morning, but Meadow requested big pancakes. 

She was even getting mad when we wouldn't get out of bed to make them.

She had just made a butterfly mask a day earlier. She insisted on making another one today. Only this time she made a cat.

She moves too much to let us take a picture.

Trust us. It was a cat.

This weekend was dedicated to packing up as much as we could. 

I've been packing up every day, so we only have odds and ends left. That is, besides the kitchen which is our biggest packing job.

All day Meadow kept asking me to play with her. I told her this weekend wasn't going to be much fun and after we move we will have time to play. By the end of the day I agreed to read Amelia Bedelia Christmas to her, her new favorite book.

While packing things I found a random 100 piece puzzle. Meadow said it was too hard so we worked on it together.

 Apparently you did have some time to play. Ha.

Meanwhile I took a break from packing to make veggie paella. I don't think I would've ever made paella had I had not received this pan from the Torreses back in the day.

 Then I spent the rest of the night making a dress for Meadow for a Christmas gift. I had to work on this after she goes to bed. I really hope it fits her.

It's pretty darling. Good job, Killer Bee.

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

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l

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.
