Coronavirus: Week 5 - Easter Etc.

Despite the coronavirus the Easter Bunny still came. Meadow had put a note on our door for the bunny that the baskets were by the front door. So then he wouldn't have to come into our place.



We don't want the Easter Bunny to spread the virus.
The Easter bunny did leave the baskets inside by our door.

Wow, he even knows Theo's name.

Meadow got a unicorn sleep mask, seaweed snacks, San Pellagrino, mango chips, Theo chocolate and jelly beans.




Theo got new cars for his race track, Theo chocolate, mango chips and Swedish Fish.


This race track is really fun and now we've got more cars.

Theo rushed over to help me make my grandma's Rhubarb cake.



The kids have started a band. We are missing celebrating Easter at Blake's new house this year.

But the kids still know how to have fun.

Meadow dressed Theo as a bunny.

Instead of coloring eggs we drew faces on them.

We had an Easter lunch. Fish tacos and the kids loved them.

It's our Easter at home tradition.

My dad called during dinner. The kids wanted to talk to him too.



We also drank the crowlers we picked up from Eastlake Brewery.


And had my Grandma's over sugary cake. 

We got a special delivery from Shannyn and the kids.

Then Meadow and I went out and enjoyed the late season snowstorm.

I know most people don't want snow in April, but I think there's nothing better.

Meanwhile, I caulked our bathroom. 

We're trying to potty train Theo, but he's not all that interested.

Taking a break.

Brooke used to make fun of me for escaping to the bedroom, but now she understands.

Our bedroom gets lots of natural light in the late afternoon. It's the best place to be.

We got some special bunny subs from Shannyn and Brent for our dinner.

Then we played pictionary with Chelsea and Nolan. 




It was much colder Easter week, but we eventually did get outside. By then most of the snow was gone.

Meadow took her American Girl doll out on a bike ride one evening.

I guess the open road is only for pedestrians and bikes still have to use the trails.

I don't get it, but I guess pedestrians need more space.

We ventured off the busier Lake Harriet path to Minnehaha Creek.

At the end of the week Meadow found some wood model kits. I helped her out by putting a helicopter together.


Then the kids insisted I make some crepes.

I like the color of our walls in our living area, but hate that if anything touches it it leaves a mark. I did a lot of touch up painting.

I also woke up to Theo's artwork. Did you know mayonaise takes off crayon on walls?

Ewww....I wish i didn't know that's how you cleaned it.

I'd love to strip the paint on our archway someday.

As soon as I turned my back the little stinker found a marker...

This time he cleans it up.




This week I made a Potato, Cheddar and Chive bread.

We are members at the Children's Museum and this weekend I had originally planned for us to do a day trip to Rochester to go to their museum as our membership works there too. At this time I don't see any trips to the children's museums in the near future.

Bike rides and walks are it for a while.

This kid can ride pretty fast when she wants to.

By the time we got back Meadow claimed she was still not tired. 

So we played some ball.

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.
