The Duplex Rental's Bathroom is Coming Together (with Some Help from Theo)

After replacing the faucet and then the water lines we finally had the new sink installed. Putting new plumbing or major pipe repairs is well beyond my abilities, but this was pretty easy except for the mounting.

We originally had scheduled a plumber to come out and do it when Scott realized he could do it himself.
 
My birthday present from my mother-in-law came in the mail. Yes, I love AJ Dillon!
 
  Too bad it didn't arrive before going to the Packer game.

I had to shorten the spacing, but in the end I got the towel bar up. Just a little touch up painting is now needed.
 
There was a few shelves in this space that we removed. Picking a place for a towel bar is harder than it looks. We never use ours so was hard to imagine. We figured having it near the radiator would be nice for after showers. 
 
 

Theo watched while I put up hooks.
 
I'm a big fan of hooks.  

According to Brooke, hooks are very important.
 
I hate when we stay places and there aren't enough hooks. 

Next I installed some on the bedroom doors.

But first needed shorter screws.

Thanks Theo.
 
Next was tackling the windows. You get docked points for peeling paint in windows. You shouldn't have peeling paint in any windows.

While Scott did that I finished painting the trim work in the hallway.

As usual the kids were on their own watching shows and making creations with Magnatiles.

Meadow was also back to making clothes for her stuffies. 

I also recently taught Meadow how to knit and now she's addicted. We stopped at a little neighborhood craft store to pick up yarn and kids knitting needles. 

This place is coming along. 

Meadow made me pajamas for my phone. 

The bathroom was officially finished. All it needed was deep cleaning. 

Again, spending too much time on the details. I scrapped off so many old paint spills and other random stuck on debris.

Then I deep cleaned the smaller bedroom. Tyler is coming to stay for a few days and I didn't think he wanted a dust filled bedroom. 

To end the weekend Meadow showed us her giraffe presentation that she made at school.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend

St Nick Day! Pitty the fools who don't celebrate this Wisconsin tradition via the Netherlands. Kirby! Cat ornament! Pretty good St Nick loot this year.
