Old Neighbors and Good Friends from the Northside

Whenever we feed Theo and he wants more he throws his arms in the air and yells.

My old neighborhood friend Joel was selling his house on the Northside and we thought we'd stop by. 

I had no idea his home was this beautiful.

He made a lot of upgrades to the house.

I loved the kitchen. 

The refrigerator was disguised as an ice box.

This porch! Joel did an amazing job rehabbing this home. I guess it's already pending a sale.

Since we were in our old 'hood we stopped by to see our old neighbors.

We missed Wes and Sandy!

Sadly we heard stories of how the new owners tore through all the screens and they had children sleeping in the basement.

Still, it was great seeing them and catching up. Get well soon Sandy.

After a quick jaunt to get a photo I needed for a recent job, we drove to Excelsior to get some frozen custard at Adele's.

Over the summer I purchased an ice cream punch card to various ice cream shoppes around the twin cities. Some places I'd never heard of. This one is a classic.

They even let Brooke get a waffle cone. Sweet!

We had pizza planned for dinner so I invited Shannyn and Brent to join us. They hadn't seen our new place yet.

I went all out turning leftovers into awesome pizzas. Poutine and plain cheese to start.

Then Mexican, mac and cheese and pepperoni to finish.

Eleanor and Meadow couldn't be separated. These two just always have too much fun.

Hopefully we can make friends like them in our new neighborhood. Finding babysitters has been getting tougher.

Is that all your friends are good for? Ha.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days. I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard. I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this. I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Su
