Good morning Ladies ! It is another cold morning here 1 degree as I look at my countertop thermometer . The week started so nice with Sunday being in the mid thirties, It felt really good with the sunshine! After that it all about wrapping up in layers as you went outside.
As I said last Sunday , we stayed at a hotel nearby as the kids were off on Monday for presidents day. We checked in at 3:30 pm and our rooms were poolside, meaning you just open a sliding door and and you can get right to the pool area in the middle of the hotel. The kids changed fast and were in the pool immediately ! There are kiddy splash pools , but we are now beyond that for our youngest now . He is in the big pool and loves the water like the rest of his siblings. There is a big slide that they went down and had fun with. I put on my suit as well and got wet too! I also spent a little time in the hot tub . At 6 we went to a nearby Perkins restaurant for dinner. They were so understaffed , The greeter Lady also had to clean tables to get people seated. I felt bad for her. But everyplace seems to be looking for staff in the catering business now. We had a nice meal when it did come out. We went back to the hotel and the kids got back in the pool, us adults just sat and watched them play this time.
On Monday morning it was an early check out as our son had a doctors appointment . It was a fun little getaway though ! The week went back to normal Tuesday with work and school. On Wednesday we got a few inches of snow , just to compliment the rest of our snow built up for the past few months ! Last night our son had a little playdate with his friend Amelia and she also brought some girl scout cookies that we purchased from her. They are very tasty and for a good cause.
We will be doing some final prep for our trip to Las Vegas this weekend ! We leave on Friday night and will arrive late , but I hope to be up early Saturday to see the place ! I am not sure if I will get to write a post but if not next week I will the following week.

Good morning Ladies from a sunny balmy Minnesota !! You heard right , it is 42 f right now and sunny and it feels amazing ! Lots will think I am crazy but when your body is climatized to sub zero temps this feels so good. Now where did i put that sun lotion ?!!
Last Sunday we had a nice relaxing day and then in the evening we tuned into the superbowl. I enjoyed it for the most part, The commercials were ok , half time show pretty good , and was an exciting finish with the Rams winning by one score to win the trophy. Monday came around fast and it was back to the grind! It was also Valentines day( or St. Valentines day as I first remember it being called ) A nice little picture below !
We stayed home and had a nice dinner with the whole family. Wednesday was church class night for the kids . There is always a bit of driving that night as they go at two different times , but that is ok. On Friday our daughter went to a friends for a sleepover. On Saturday my in-laws came and brought us sauer kraut and dumplings a German favorite, I have gotten used to it after marrying into a part German family ! My Father -in -law is really good at making them ! They stayed for a few hours and surprised the kids with a trip to Las Vegas over spring break! We knew about it already, but it was exciting for the kids . We go on March 4th and return March 10th ! It is a more family friendly place these days and I am interested to see it at first hand ! It will be good to experience different temperatures!
We are still working on our basement project , here are a few photos
The kids are off school tomorrow for presidents day and we are staying in a hotel for tonight with a swimming park that has some nice slides! We will be checking in at 3:30 this afternoon.

Have a beautiful week ahead, talk to you next week, Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies ! You join me from another chilly Minnesota morning. it is -5f right now . Yesterday we woke up to rain and 36f. The rain is the worst this time of year , after its done it freezes and causes icy spots for driving in. It is better if it stays just under the freezing mark. We are promised a few days of cold weather going forward.
As I said last week I tested positive for Covid and had to isolate from the family. It was tough but we got through . On Monday I was able to go back to work and was advised to wear a mask for the week as I did . Even at home I stayed away for the most part from everyone just in case, I did not want to get anyone sick. Wednesday the kids were back in church class . As the week went on I was getting back to normal. I was just happy I didn’t get any adverse side effects.
On Friday night our daughter had a bunch of girlfriends over for a sleepover. I made them breakfast on Saturday morning before they went their separate ways. We worked on the basement yesterday, prepping the walls with sheetrock mud . It is a 3 part process so maybe will be ready in 2 weeks for paint! Today we went to church and later will watch the superbowl(I think ! ) I will let you know below which team I want to win!

Wishing you a lovely week ahead, Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies ! I am back again after another 2 week break . On Sunday January 23rd we went to late church . We were down one car as one was in the shop for repairs. On Tuesday the 25th I took our son to a doctor appointment to see how he was progressing with his boot after fracturing his shinbone in November. He got good news and was told he does not need it anymore and we walked out of the hospital with both shoes on !! As a treat we went to one of our favorite restaurants Perkins on the way home for lunch ! I spent the rest of the day doing jobs around the house. ( always stuff to do!)
The rest of the week went by quickly, it was nice when Friday came. On Saturday we worked on our basement bedroom / bathroom project. We added sound insulation in the floor between the upper level, and were ready to start sheetrocking! We borrowed a sheetrock lift which makes it easy to put it on the ceiling. You put the sheet on the platform and crank a wheel, magic ! On Sunday we went to normal morning church . It was a nice afternoon to relax . We did watch some football and the Chargers and Cincinnati made it to the superbowl.
On Monday it was another cold day , I think I am getting used to them now! It was back to the regular week. On Tuesday coming home from work I started to feel a little weak and got some chills. I stopped at target to pick up food for dinner and it continued . I came home and decided as a precaution to do a covid test . We have some in home testing kits. I went through all the steps and at the end it came back POSITIVE !! I could not believe it , but accepted the results. I isolated from the family after that and took the Wednesday , Thursday and Friday off work. When everyone was at work and school Wednesday I did some small chores but after a bit I was starting to feel weak again. I listened to my body and took it easy ! By Friday I was starting to come around again and got some things done. This weekend I have been hiding away with everyone at home ! I kind of feel guilty but it is necessary. This is the last day of isolation but I will try and be careful for the next few as well.
