Coronavirus: Week 3

Meadow's suddenly a Facetime fanatic.



Brooke's parents were supposed to be here this weekend, but couldn't come up after the stay at home orders were put in place.

Plus Ikea and all the breweries are closed. They're literally nothing for them to do. 

After a cold and rainy weekend the sun finally came out.

Because of the increase in pedestrians Minneapolis closed off some of the parkways to cars. 

It was relatively quiet along the parkway.

Most people still stuck to the trails.


Theo was really digging the sunset.


I totally understand why everyone wants to get out.


This was also Meadow's spring break week. Brooke had to work, but the rest of us tried to have fun.

theo is climbing.

theo is still climbing.

me and theo were climbing on rocks.

We started to bike down the parkway, but it was nuts now that everyone realized that it was closed. We instead found a quiet place to adventure at the nearby peace garden.

Meadow and the neighbor boy played a game called whoosh ball. They also like to chat with each other from 20 feet apart.

Meadow claims its wish ball.

The kids and I have playing all kinds of games on our double wide driveway we share with the neighboring condo. I even swept up all the loose gravel that gets dislodged by our snowplow driver.

Meadow is going to be pro wiffle ball player at the end of this.

i'm not that good at bating.

Meadow didn't want to come with Theo and I on a bike ride. So, just Theo and I went for a ride.


Meadow is not the only one who loves to cook.

Thanks for the breakfast Theo.

I couldn't find Theo and then I heard him giggling. I found him hiding behind our shelf.

So...now they say we should wear masks when in public. Luckily I have materials to make some from home. I started with a child mask for Meadow.

Looking cool and safe.

I continue to make some of our favorites on a nightly basis.

Meadow doesn't really leave the house except to play outside. She still insisted on wearing her mask on our bike ride.

We went for a short ride and then returned home for movie night.

Movie night means popcorn for these kids.

We watched the new release of Onward on Disney+.

Also rearranged our living room this week. 

And Theo went diving for popcorn. The end.

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

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

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.
