Day 29

A proper post...
As I started documenting my daily activities, I've noticed that some days I have twenty things to post about and on others, I have nothing at all to say. The ebb and flow of our daily lives is interesting that way...

Last night G and I didn't get home until late and it was a jam packed day filled with lots of activities. In the morning, we met G's mom and dad for breakfast before they headed off to a track clinic. Next, we met with a real estate  management company to begin the process of renting out my house in MPLS. The emotional roller coaster continues and it will be difficult for me to completely remove all my possessions from my first home but it is time to move forward with my husband and we can no longer continue to pay three mortgages without some help. The process of letting go continues...

After that, we headed to Wisconsin to celebrate my dear Alice's birthday. She turned four this year and has become more outspoken and opinionated, which is a plus in my family if you want to be heard. She is girl through and through which is something new for me because I'm not exactly a girlie girlie and this one, she LOVES princesses. The whole party was about princesses and there was pink and purple everywhere. She's such a cutie!



Alice opened most of her presents with this look of determination......


And then there was cake....

And what's a party without a pinata? 
(and of course a snow blower in the background... 
aw, January birthdays in Wisconsin.)



And finally to round out our already busy day, we headed over to Red Wing to pick up an old LARGE TV my mom and Arnie were getting rid of 
AND to present Arnie with his hat and sweater.
As he was trying them on he kept saying, "This is so exciting. This is just really exciting." For an old Norwegian guy, that was a lot of emotion!!!



Now to fix those pesky sleeves....
