Ahhh Belgium

this might give you a little insight as to what I had to deal with in Brussels. I still love that crazy country though.

best thing

I thought getting Twins Season tickets was the best thing I have done since I moved back to Minnesota...This Bose ipod player is a close second. I love it I'm not sure why I didn't get one sooner. My or Joe's cd player thing with the stereo doesn't work anymore so this is what I decided to do instead of a whole new stereo system. Going with out music is not an option.

Song playing "sex on fire" by kings of leon - yes it was cranked up loud.

Hope Rocks

Saturday I went to the Hope Rocks Benefit. The band was Everclear. It benefits families that have lost a child and need a get a way at a lodge in Wisconsin.

I went by myself but met Don & Annie. Don was the guy who sang at Joe's funeral. Don was busy running around and Annie was talking to all her friends...I was just happy they got me into the VIP section and just hung there all night with no worries. Yes most of the night i was sitting by myself but i was in the VIP all was good.

If I would have thought or had a bigger dress clutch I would have brought my camera. The 2 photos below were taken on my iphone and I'm not a big fan of cell phone photos.

I'm getting out but i'm still not a 100% I ran away when the guitarist flirted with me and pass up a chance to hang with the band. Now does that sound like something I would have passed up in the past?

First let me say Yeah Twins for winning the central division!!!!!!!!! I also got my first series playoff tickets, can't wait.

So I'm trying to sew this shawl/wrap for halloween, but it is starting to take on a mind of it's own as I'm sewing it. Not only is it tulle but it is strips that i'm sewing on and it is always sticking to me or if I let it hang down it is all covered with Ana's white hair. As I just typed that Ana shook all over.

getting ready

I'm getting ready for halloween...since it is just me now it takes a little longer to get everything perfect. I didn't do anything last year for halloween it was just to hard since Joe and I always had halloween parties and we both like that holiday.

My built in getting all ready for the holiday

big silver thing

last week I got a new fridge! how exciting is that last fridge was from the 60's and i thought was going to die any day. My new one is wonder full - I never knew how nice a new fridge could be. When I remodel my kitchen I want a sub-zero and the sales guy said you only need a sub zero if you are totally an organic vegetarian. Well I guess I really will get one now!

Sorry for the late blogs I have been busy but I don't know what I'm doing beside more lawyer stuff and getting ready for Halloween. Well a little job hunting in there too.

seven years

Yesterday would have been our 7th year anniversary. I can' t be too sad because my friend Margarita lost her husband 2 years ago yesterday.

I did go out to a nice restaurant for dinner with my friend Sally.

The bed

The good news is Ana is still improving everyday, the bad news is that she now wants to be in the bed at night with Foxy and I. How can you say NO to this cute face?

September 8, 2010


Does anyone know where summer went???? Over labor day I had company and we did the mill city museum, driving tour of Minnepolis, Mall of America, twins game and State Fair.

Last night I went to the twins game again...I was nervous about game in April because of the weather I never thought I would be wearing gloves in September. What am I going to wear when we are in the world series this year?

Montgomery Wards

When I lived in Chicago I use to work at Montgomery Wards, here is what my day was like.

I would park here and then get ready for work...back in the day it was free parking

then I would walk across this bridge...I don't ever remember that little shed though, just in the winter it was cold and if I work a skirt the wind would blow it up.

The statue on top of what use to be the merchandise building - the statue is from the world's fair when it was in Chicago

The merchandise building now a condo with balcony's. In the back ground is one of the other buildings. Sometimes I would take my lunch to that lunch room for a nice view of the city. I worked on the second floor of the merchandise building.

This is or was the catalog building...again now condo's

Then I would drive home...
