  • And it Continues

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jul 13, 2024

    I woke up Wednesday morning and there was a blood clot hanging AGAIN! This time it wasn't as big and I did get it removed with one swipe. Yes, I did sleep, if you call it sleep, with the gauze in my mouth and it was DISGUSTING. I woke up many times and gagged several, as well. I did survive. I wasn't happy when it was still bleeding, but it had slowed down a lot. Finally by Wednesday afternoon the bleeding stopped and I was GAUZE FREE! It was a huge relief. There wasn't a lot of pain through t...

  • Quite a week Continued

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jul 6, 2024

    The week continues. Monday came and we had to be to Grand Forks by 10:30 a.m. It seemed like Kyle was flying there. It might have been because I was not looking forward to the tooth extraction! We get there and back I go after they took a lot of money! I had a lady ask me some questions, then the dental surgeon came in. I reminded him that I'm on blood thinners and I'm now a bleeder. He said he would do a little extra packing in the extraction site. I was then taken to another room and they put...

  • Quite a week

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jun 29, 2024

    Our Duluth trip came to an end. It was a lot of fun. We did stop by Ely to check out Steve and Irene Bouton's new place. They will definitely enjoy their home away from home. It is a very nice space. Mom decided since I had a dental surgery coming up she wanted to get in on the fun. A week ago Saturday night shortly after we had arrived at home from Baudette with Sarah and Brian, mom decided to call me. I had given her a call right when we got home and she was feeling kinda sick. When she...

  • Gooseberry Falls 2021 and 2024

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jun 22, 2024

    Tom Palen suggested we check out Gooseberry Falls since the recent rains had made it a sight to see! He was correct! We went and saw the falls in 2021 and it was DRY! We could walk everywhere. The water was barely trickling that year. This year it was fast and furious. The water was high and bubbling. In 2021 where we had walked was now underwater. Rhubarb Butter Ingredients 4 stalks of rhubarb (about 4 cups) 1 apple, cored and cut into chunks 1/2 cup honey 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/4–1/2 t...

  • The fun Continues...

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jun 15, 2024

    We decided to check out Pedro's Grill and Cantina in Superior, Wis. It is family-owned and operated. Pedro's prepares authentic Mexican dishes. It was quite tasty and the margaritas were pretty good. It was a great place to eat and the staff was very friendly. I think Kyle and Bri would say the games were fun, too! Some Spotted Cow was purchased after we ate and I made a new friend. She was a blue and white pittie, who was super sweet! We went back to the hotel to have a few adult beverages and...

  • The fun Continues...

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jun 8, 2024

    Lake Superior was now in our sights and so were the rocks! We stopped at Flood Bay, which is by the Agate Geological Marker, and our agate hunting started. It's so nice that the whole gang gets into rock hunting with me. We were laying down on the rocks looking for the "pretty" ones and seeing if we could spy an agate or two. We did find several small agates, so it was a win. There were other people there doing the same thing. Since we were beginners, Kyle went and asked them a few questions....

  • The fun begins...

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Jun 1, 2024

    Our short but sweet adventure was definitely needed. At one of our first stops the guys decided they needed to try out the Walleye and see if they could stay on it. It was a success! Sarah and I may or may not have tried, as well. We did check out a greenhouse in Virginia, Minn., but I can't say I was impressed. Roseau County is MUCH better! The waffle cone at The Sugar Shack was worth the stop though. I had the Monster Cookie flavor. It was delicious! Rhubarb Cake topped with a buttery sauce In...

  • Life....

    Jodi Wojciechowski|May 11, 2024

    Las Vegas is over and Sarah's phone situation updated so now it's back to life. I had a birthday and was spoiled!! A lighted palm tree was one of my cool gifts. I haven't put it up outside quite yet, but if the weather starts staying warmer it will be going up. When we were in Montana they had a propane firepit on their deck which I expressed I thought would look great on my deck. Guess what will be on my deck now!! A unique airplant, which is quite cool, found its way to me along with six... Full story

  • Update on Sarah's Stolen Phone

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Apr 27, 2024

    Sarah's stolen phone traveled to China! We did guess that is where it would end up. They tried hard to get her to "remove" her stolen phone. Several messages were sent and the last message was quite threatening! They began by trying to make it seem as though Verizon didn't erase her phone, which she knew was false. Then they said it was going to be auctioned on the black market and several times showed her with pics how to remove the device. Next they said it was bought secondhand for the person...

  • Until Next Time...

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Apr 20, 2024

    Our last evening we wandered around on Fremont Street. We watched the Viva Vision - The world's largest LED canopy screen. The Viva Vision light show we watched featured hits from three-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and dancer, Shakira. I think the Viva Vision will always be a neat experience no matter how many times I go to Vegas. We also fit in a Del Taco stop, which is one of everyone's favorite places to grab a quick bite to eat. Another great place we checked out was Evel...

  • They have All Kinds of People in Vegas

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Apr 6, 2024

    After a little sleep it was time to hit Fremont Street and check out what it was like nowadays. Located in downtown Las Vegas, Fremont Street spreads over five blocks. It's home to many casinos and hotels. It's also known for jaw-dropping shows and fun activities, from free concerts to the 12-story SlotZilla Zipline. If you go there just before evening you can catch Viva Vision, a light and sound show that takes place on the world's largest video screen which is an LED canopy that spans 130,000...

  • Las Vegas 40th Birthday Celebrations Continued

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Mar 30, 2024

    We boarded the plane over an hour late which was way past my bedtime. It was around midnight our time. I did warn everyone I was nervous flying since it was the elevation that contributed to the timing of my heart attack a couple years ago. While we were up in the air there was a medical emergency and it may have entered Brian's head for a brief moment that it was me. It wasn't and the staff did a great job taking care of the lady with the medical emergency. We landed and arrived at our hotel...

  • Las Vegas 40th Birthday Celebrations

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Mar 23, 2024

    Sarah, Brian and I had quite the shenanigans going for the big 4-0 birthday celebration. I think we almost gave Kyle a heart attack with his birthday surprise! We had come up with the plan we were going out to eat in Grand Forks at the Mexican restaurant and then go spend one night at the Devils Lake casino and one night at the Cass Lake casino. We did go out to eat at Charras in Grand Forks but then I gave him his birthday present which was an old man bucket hat and a 40th birthday chain. Also... Full story

  • I'm ready for planting season!

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Mar 16, 2024

    The warm weather and the time change have my mind thinking about the new additions I must add to my yard this year. I’m sure Kyle is excited to see what I need his expertise building skills to assist me with this Spring! I have a few ideas I have found that are of interest to me. Now I just need to decide where I have a spot and which ones (Yes, it’s plural!) I would like. Kyle has a BIG birthday coming up this Friday! He is turning 40!! If you see him be sure to wish him a happy 40th birthday....

  • Thank you Roseau and Warroad

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Mar 9, 2024

    Bro was kind and made my life easy this week. Or was he?!? I think we all know he wasn’t really thinking about me and giving me almost no space to write much. He had wrestling on his mind and Hult. So it was either out of the kindness of good ol’ Bro’s heart or pure coincidence that he had a ton of photos of Hult and made my life easy this week. Whatever the reason is I am thankful since hockey has been kicking my butt the past few weeks. Carrie and I have been going non-stop. Julie, Laurel, Bro and Kyle helped out A LOT, too. The Roseau and W... Full story

  • A Polar Coaster

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Mar 2, 2024

    Kathy Searle Oops...I thought for sure Laurel had mentioned to the doughnut lady, Kathy Searle my text message of the office needing a sample of doughnuts, but she didn't! Kathy did it all on her own without knowing my request. What a sweet lady!! It was much appreciated Kathy and so kind of you to go out of your way to bring us doughnuts. Shirley Magnusson My next thought that is on my mind is a huge thank you to Shirley Magnusson. She is the kindest person and is always sending thoughtful and...

  • Blueberry Doughnuts!

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Feb 23, 2024

    Laurel wrote an article on the doughnut lady, Kathy Searle, last week. Jokingly I texted Laurel telling her the office really needed to sample the doughnuts. The RTR had a visitor with a HUGE bag of doughnuts! Kathy stopped in with freshly made doughnuts! I didn't know Laurel had told Kathy about my text, but thank you for sharing it Laurel! The doughnuts were amazeballs!! Kathy shared blueberry and plain doughnuts with the office. I'm not sure which I liked better. Kathy definitely knows how...

  • Black Wedding Dress

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Feb 17, 2024

    I really don't have anything on my mind today. It's Valentine's Day which doesn't seem right. This winter has been so messed up with the warmer weather and I'm not even sure what month it is, but I'm not complaining about the weather! I found some big stuffies for the furbabies for Valentine's Day. Normally it's not hard to spend $30 or more on a big stuffie, but these were $9.97. A great bargain!! Kyle has a BIG birthday coming up in March and I'm excited for that. It's his mom's birthday...

  • We won't miss him

    Jodi Wojciechowski|Feb 9, 2024

    It's time to fire Bro. He didn't include me in this year's Snickers Gal tribute. And after all I've done for him. He was just a bindlestiff when he came in looking for a job. He can somewhat write but he's a thief. He steals my pens, my candy and even my parking spot. This week, he wrote the shortest column ever and threw in old photos that include his family, but not of his dog. Where's Roper? You know! The dog he left in his garage at 60 below and fed it cornflakes. I have inserted Roper's...
