Knock Knock Turkey Time

I have recently purchased tickets to come back to Wisconsin just before Christmas. Southwest Airlines seems to have the best deal at 69 dollars per flight from Logan airport in Boston to Midway airport in Chicago, and back again. 4 people round trip with taxes for somewhere near 550 dollars. I will be renting a car with National and selecting from the Emerald Isle. Then the 3-4 hour drive to Mineral Point, WI. This is not Door County.

However, I think its crazy to be the Door County Artist who doesn't expand his or her horizons. Staying in Door County exclusively would limit my wild curiosity. Not that you can't live and stay in Door County forever and be awesome. I just need to excuse the fact that I am not there. Nor, will I be traveling to Door County during this trip back to the cheese State.

Hey, there is a pretty good art scene in Mineral Point. You can hardly listen to Wisconsin Public Radio without hearing a "commer
cial" about Mineral Point. I will be heade…

New to Town: The Move! Sister Bay

Who would have known a PT Cruiser had so much room? I moved everything we owned from a storage unit just outside Sister Bay to our new abode. Sure, it only took me twenty trips or more! I wasn't really counting. However, with a little patience we were moved in and ready to start our little Door County adventure, beyond our tent. In our tent it had seemed like it would rain on us everyday. Now, four days of sunshine since our move.

Ellie has started her school year with some pre- service training and prep work. Monday she was invited to dine with the school board and other leaders at Gibraltar. She walked away with peace of mind. She told me folks have a pretty good sense of humor and were pretty pleasant. I am about a week into my new job at Good Samaritan. It is a neat place to be. Due to HIPPA laws I can't really talk in detail about the folks I work with or the people I serve. That is fine by me.

Our little tikes are settling in. Aidy and Lee-Lee were going a bit stir crazy camping for a month. The day we moved in and they saw all there toys was kinda crazy. They were excited and pretty happy to see all their stuffed animals, trains, cars, and you name it. Momma needed a break after a few hours of the manic energy, but she managed to keep the peace.

Something crazy happened. All of a sudden Liam and Aiden can ride a trike like its nothing. When we left Boys Town in Rhode Island they couldnt steer and could barely peddle without getting frustrated. Now they are pros peddling and sterring with ease. Without really any practice since those scenes of frustration a month or so ago. I suppose something just clicked in their minds. Maybe all the pent up energy caused them to try harder, and let go of fears.

Now we are set with a nice roof over our heads. The downside is we have to move in 9 months. I do not look forward to that, but we may be ready to purchase a home. I don't want to camp for 3 months next year. I say that now, but we may, who knows!
