A Change in Plans


Miss Peanut Butter knew how to start the day right with an hour long tantrum about using the potty. But someone though it would be a good idea for her to not only have pizza for breakfast but to eat it in the recliner. Daddy is right, his bark is worse than his bite.


I filled out paperwork to have another speech evaluation and figure out what our out of pocket costs would be. I know that you find the money when you have to, but it is another bill.

J has decided to flip our va-cay plans this August. Instead of us visiting out nation's capital and perhaps a glimpse of Obama, he is now thinking Chicago. As much as Chicago could be fun, I am a little disappointed. He also led me to believe that The Boy had a vested interest in going to Chi Town, but uppon investigating this The Boy said he hasn't mentioned anything to his father on the subject. I get that D.C. may be a bit much for Miss PB at this time, but I am not doing a theme park(Great America) with the girl unless it is Disney or she is much older. I have thrown Minneapolis into the mix for my own selfish reasons, which is the possiblity of running into some fellow bloggers. A 4hr drive just seems like more of a vacation than a 2 hr drive. So I'm sure we will be breaking down the pluses and minuses of both. If any MN peeps want to give me some ideas on what to see or do there other than the Mall and Zoo, which is already in the mix go ahead and fire away, I don't think I really have any Chicagoans, but if anyone wants to give a shout out for that fair city, by all means do. I at least got him to forget about Door County. I am not doing a vacation in my own state.

You should come to Mn at the end of August during the MN State Fair!! There is a lot more to do than just MOA and the Zoo :) I would also recommend a drive to the North Shore of Lake Superior :)

Oy. Was M.'s first evaluation done under EI? I would think if another needs to be done they would cover that one as well. Good luck getting it all sorted out . . . I am thankful we have dodge that particular bullet.

Vacation . . . I am too jealous to even think of some alternatives! Although we are tentatively planning a trip to MN the last week of June/first week of July . . . either way up north for my grandmother's memorial service or the cities for a family reunion. Keep us posted!

YES come to MN...We are a great state that has alot to offer....(I was sounding like a spokesperson) ha ha ha. The North shore/Duluth is beautiful and one of my favorite place to visit. The twin cities has a lot too. Como zoo. Science Museum. Children's Museum. And the great get together the MN state fair. AND we could all try and meet..ya I think you should be selfish and choose MN
