Fry Lodge is Hot

We picked up the keys of our new house today. And it is hot. I mean really hot. It has a sauna. To celebrate taking possession of our new home this evening, we moved the following items to Fry Lodge Belllingham II: one Weber grill, one firepit, one turntable, a few dozen records, four Adirondack chairs, and our bathrobes. After enjoying a tasty meal, we cranked up the sauna and steamed up the place. Can’t wait to move in permanently.

Birthday Karaoke in the Mall

Kristine and I had just left Target, which is attached to the mall, to buy her birthday present together – a FitBit that I’d later wrap with the kids and Kristine would pretend was a surprise. This is what our birthdays have become. Last weekend, I’d had pre-knowledge of my birthday gift, too. As Kristine and I walked through the mall, pondering this clinical approach to celebration, we passed the karaoke booth. I was nostalgically thinking about all our visits to Ozzie’s over the years when Kristine said, “Hey, do you want to sing karaoke with me for my birthday?” I said yes.

Happy birthday, Kristine. Heaven is being locked in a mall karaoke booth with you for eternity.

Spring break Fry Lodge Style

Because we don’t have enough happening at Fry Lodge, we decided to change everything all at once. Again. Within a period of a week, we made an offer on a new house, put our house up for sale, Marie Kondo’d the hell out of Fry Lodge, took a trip to the Oregon Coast to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary and frolic in the 50-degree Pacific Ocean, regrouped for a day in Seattle, and then went our separate ways again – Kristine and the kids back to Bellingham and me to New York. Stay tuned for more details on Fry Lodge Bellingham II.

Just another week at Fry Lodge
