Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.


 

Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps. 

Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt.

The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast.

So sweet. In two ways.

I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt.

Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt.

Mmmm...the kids' favorite.

You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window. 

Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome.

I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day.

It was delicious.

When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up. 

I'm not sure if she's complaining, but I love our small footprint condo lifestyle. Do not miss our big old house.

Not complaining. I also love our tiny place, but having a permanent space for projects would be nice. 

With extra fabric from making Blake's camp pillow I made myself one. Theo needs a pillow now and I was going to make him one, but decided he could have my tiny one and I'll make myself a bigger one. 

We had a late launch and thought we'd skip dinner. I guess we got hungry So everyone (except me) had boxed mac and cheese for dinner.

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.
