A little bit of this and that

Mini-me has been home with her dad today, tending to her cuts in her mouth and the fever. She still has a lot of pain, so the eating isn't going to well. But atleast her fever seems to get better. Hopefully tomorrow her temperature will be normal again, fingers crossed! ❤️

When I got home from work today, my hubby had made such a difference to the apartment appearance. Maybe as much as half of all the moving boxes were unpacked and most of the furniture had been moved into place. I can't tell you how nice that felt! So I've spent the evening unpacking a few boxes myself and putting a final touch on the details. So, it's really beginning to feel like a home! ❤️ And the best part is that our countertop will be installed tomorrow! And that means we will have a working kitchen again! And our beautiful water tap will be mounted! Yeay!!!
 
I love it! I love brass, as you probably can tell! 😜 And it will look great in the kitchen! 

I'll show you some pictures tomorrow! Now I'm off to bed!

Sunday no Funday

Tired doesn't begin to describe how I feel right about now. Mini-me fell badly yesterday, which I didn't tell you in my blog entry. She hit her mouth on the wooden stairs just outside the entrance of our house. Three of her teeth was pushed back a bit in her mouth and she got a huge cut in her gum, just above the teeth in her upper jaw. And she got a cut in her lower jaw as well, a bit smaller though. And she got a cut on her chin too, just below her mouth. As you can understand she's in a lot of pain and the area around the cuts and her lips are swollen. And, as if that isn't enough, she has a high fever since yesterday evening. She slept between us all night, but I'm not sure you would call it sleep as she woke up at least two times per hour crying. ❤️ 
My husband talked with a nurse yesterday whom told us to call the dentist this morning, which I did. At first they didn't want us to drop bye, and tried to convince me that it wasn't necessary. But I didn't feel calm enough with the dentist explanation and advice, as he hadn't seen her injuries, so I called him back an hour later and got an appointment just twenty minutes later. I meet the same dentist I had talked to, and he was really great! Especially with mini-me, whom even let him check her injuries without crying. Her teeth weren't damaged, they will find their way back to there usual place in time. And the cuts didn't need stitches although they looked bad. He told me to wait a few days for the swelling to go down, and then come back for a follow up. He prescribed something that I'm to clean the cuts in her mouth with and told me to keep her off "hard" foods the next four weeks. I don't think that will be a problem because she doesn't want to eat anything today. Her mouth hurts to bad so all I've made her "eat" is some yoghurt and rosehip soup. And drinking water of course! And the dentist suggested that we'll give her a lot of ice cream as the cold will make the swelling go down. Any other day that would have made her happy, but today she doesn't even want ice cream! My poor little girl! ❤️

So, I've been lying next to her almost all day. She fell asleep two hours around midday and that gave me the opportunity to unpack some of our boxes, but not nearly as many as I had planned for today! And my fantastic husband had to spend the day alone in the house fixing all the things left from yesterday as they'll start cleaning it tomorrow! My sister, the best in the world, helped him as much as she could though! ❤️

And mini-me got the best present ever from her best friend Moltas and his sisters! They had bought her a huge Lego Friends package, with a stable and horses! She was super excited and so happy to receive that, especially today! It took mini-me and me, almost two hours to build it all! What great friends we have! We love you all to the moon and back, Jezz! You're the best! ❤️❤️❤️

My husband will stay home with mini-me tomorrow and I'll probably be home Tuesday at least, and most likely Wednesday due to her cuts in her mouth (hopefully the fever will be gone by then). 
Now I'm off to the shower, I feel dusty and a bit older from all the drama we've had this weekend!

First night

So today weve been moving all day! We thought we had moved a lot all ready, but apparently we had a loooot of stuff left in the house! My sister and her entire family helped us all day and we are so thankful for their help! We wouldn't have made it without them! ❤️

So now we're here. Our first night in our new home! And my gosh what a mess it is right now! It's like we've thrown in an entire home in a small box and then shaken it hard! 😂 It's going to take us some time to make order out of this mess! 
 
We had a visitor just before leaving the house. A beautiful Peacock butterfly. It sat in my hand and didn't even try to fly away. Maybe it was a way to say goodbye, or just a thank you for taking away the butterfly hunting and eating cat! Morris the cat will surely miss her hunts in the garden but the butterflies can yet again fly over there without being killed by the black cat! 😜

Now I'm off to bed! Mini-me got a fever tonight and are sleeping next to me and my husband. I hope she'll feel better in the morning, she was so tired tonight. Feeling poorly again. It's only three days since she last had a fever. But we heard quite a few children at kindergarten were home sick, so she might have caught a new bug.

Nightmares from hell

I woke up terrified at 03,28 this morning. I had the worst nightmare I have ever had in my life and my heart was beating in panic! I was so afraid I couldn't breathe! I dreamt that mini-me was hit by a car right next to me and I could see her under the car, rolling. And when I got to her I held her in my arms screaming while she said my name in pain and terror. That's when I woke up! I feel the panic getting its grip on me even when telling you about this dream now, and I can honestly hardly breathe. I couldn't calm down this morning even after realising it was just a bad dream. Every time I closed my eyes I saw the image of her getting hit by that car. I woke my husband crying and he comforted me, but it still didn't help. So I lay awake until the alarm went of at six and then I ran into mini-mes room and lay beside her in bed and told her how much I loved her and how dangerous cars are. And how important it is that we always watch the road for cars before passing over the street. Of course I didn't mention the dream, I just needed to feel safe that she understands the dangers in being a small child and surrounded by a lot more cars now that we're moving! Maybe that has been bugging me all this time without me really realising it, hence the nightmare. I don't know, but it hit me hard! 

But, this have not been dampening our day! I picked up mini-me early (two in the afternoon) to go to her lesson in horseback riding, and she had so much fun (as did I). They got to trot for the first time and she was super excited about that! And did very well I might add! After that we went back to the apartment to fix some interior thingys. And after that we went back to the house continuing the packing! Tomorrow is the big move!!! Finally! But now I need to sleep! I'm exhausted! And tonight I wish for happy dreams! Please! ❤️
 
Tomorrow we start our new life, in the city! We are all exited and very happy about that! And obviously, as last nights bad dream told me, a bit anxious as well! Living here in our little village has made us feel a lot more safe than the city will, and that is absolutely a game changer now! We just have to live accordingly! But everything is relative, Uppsala is more like a really small village compared to big citys like New York, and last time I heard there are children living there as well! 😜

Ending a long day early

I've been stuck in meetings all day at work today! I barely had time to squeeze in lunch! And after picking up mini-me and meeting up with hubby, we went shopping for some paint to our room and mini-mes. She wanted her walls to be painted in pink, gold and blue. I wanted her walls painted in white. So we compromised! She got one wall to paint in pink, and I chose the colour! So she got a soft pink, which I think will satisfy us both - meaning hubby/daddy doesn't have to repaint the wall in a few months! 😜
 
In Swedish it's called "puderrosa" and translated that means powder pink. 

In our bedroom I chose a much bolder colour, but I'm hoping it's going to look great!
 
Number two from the top down, called "1973 antikgrĂ„", translated to antique gray. I wanted an even darker shade, like the third, or fourth down, but I lost my courage and went with the slightly lighter one. I'm really more of a white-wall-kind-of-girl so this is a huge step for me! Scary! But I really think it's going to look great! Fingers crossed... 😁

Today I sold off two armchairs that I couldn't find any room for in the apartment, so now we've gotten rid of (sold) all the furniture that we won't bring with us in the move! Feels great, and all the buyers have been super nice and congenial! I hope they'll be happy with their new furniture! And I'm happy that we got a contribution to our new kitchen table that we still haven't bought! Need to make that happen! 
 
Now I'm turning off my phone for the night! A quick shower and brushing my teeth, then I'm jumping in to bed! Thank you for stopping by!

Summers back

What a great day we've had here in Uppsala today! I couldn't help but to feel that summer has returned! Of course I had no time to enjoy it other than through the windows as I worked all day. But it helps just knowing it's warm and sunny outside, don't you think?!
 
I've been working from home today and as mini-me had no fever and was feeling better, I could work almost without any disturbance at all. She was happy playing with her Lego Friends and iPad, only asking me questions and wanting my attention when I were out of meetings! đŸ‘đŸ»
 
I've spent most of the evening packing in the kitchen together with mini-me. Now I'm out of moving boxes so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to continue on with the packing. It's not that much left to pack, so I can see light in the tunnel of boxes! 😜

Sell, sold, sold

So hubby sold our kitchen table today, so now we have neither chairs nor table in the house! Guess we'll be eating from the floor until Saturday then! 😂
 
No, I'm just kidding! We still have the couches and table left in the living room so we'll eat in there. Feels good though, to get rid off the old furniture so easily! And that means less for us to carry on Saturday as well! 

Mini-me was stung by a wasp just as I got home from work today, poor thing! Still feverish and excited to see me she accidentally stepped on a tired wasp on the floor. She cried for about an hour and I tried everything thinkable to ease her pain. I know how much it hurts (I've had my fair share of close encounters with wasps through the years) so I suffered with her as her little toe got more and more swollen. But now she resting in bed, and the toe has almost resumed its usual size. I hope both her cold and toe are better tomorrow! I'll be keeping her company here at home, although working as much as possible at the same time. I have a meeting between 10-16 so I hope she's feeling better and can play next to me while attend it. We'll see! 

Now I'm off packing some boxes before turning in for the night!

Hot baby girl

And I mean hot! Mini-me still has a high fever and a bad cough, so my husband will be home with her tomorrow as well. Poor thing! ❤️
 She's laying on the couch looking at "Macha and the bear" on the TV right now. I've just given her some medicine to take the fever down and will read to her before putting her to bed. 

Today my husband sold our old kitchen chairs and a large commode, and apparently someone wants to buy our old bookshelves too. Good thing that the furnitures get reused instead of just thrown away, don't you think! We sold off the old kitchen in the apartment too instead of throwing it out. And another great advantage by selling all this is that we don't have to drive it all to the recycling station! Here in Sweden you don't have to pay for throwing your old stuff/garbage out. You just take it to the recycling station and sort it into the right containers - like for example: plastic, corrugated cardboard, garden waste, steal/metal, paper, electrical appliances, hazardous waste and so on. A great service that makes it easier for everyone to make an effort for our environment! 
 
Now I have to put mini-me to bed. I bought her a new book today that I'm going to read to her in bed. It's about a horse so I'm sure she's going to like it! 🐮🩄❤️

Two days of fun

Well, I don't know if "fun" is the right word to use, but we've spent the last two days packing and moving things into our apartment. And buying new things (like a desk to mini-me, doors and chairs) and getting rid of the old (mostly the doors but also a lot of packing materials)! So I've had little time to write here on the blog, but I'll make sure to give you a before and after picture later on so you can see the change! It's going to be beautiful! 
These are the doors that came with the apartment, really boring and plain.
 
 So we bought these instead. And yes, we will paint the mouldings framing the door as they look yellow next to the new door.
 
And we bought new chairs. Finally! I've been going on about chairs like forever, but every time I were about to place an order I hesitated! And maybe this is why! This chair! Which I found on IKEA! Love them! We now have four of these, and...
 
...two of these! Also IKEA. They'll go well togheter! The only problem being I've still not found a table I like!!! So we have the chairs, but no table to put our plates and glasses on! 😜

Still a lot to be done, furniture to move and walls to be painted, and we got a week to do it on! Tomorrow I'm back at work, but my hubby is going to stay home with mini-me who has caught a cold and went to bed with fever, a snotty nose and a cough. Poor thing! ❤️

Boxes everywhere

There are boxes everywhere! In the house, and in the apartment! And we're going to have to live with that for another week as we've decided to move next weekend. Why? Beacause we didn't get our appliances delivered for the kitchen today as we thought we would. So no fridge/freezer, no oven, no microwave and no stove. And that would be a problem as we need to store food, cook it and eat it, at least twice a day. So, we're going to continue on moving over as much as possible this weekend between the two of us, and get the wardrobes built in our and mini-mes room. Hopefully will just have to move the big furniture (beds, sofas, dining table and chairs) next weekend!

Now I'm off to bed. It's been a long day!
