Prioritising

So, somedays in life you just have to reprioritize the events planned for the day ahead of you. Like this morning. Mini-me woke up with a fever, and as my husbands working nights (and still hadn't come back home yet) I had to be the one staying home tending to our baby girl. Work, and all the meetings planned for today, just had to be cancelled or postponed. 
 
So I find myself sitting comfortably on the couch, with a hot chai latte in my hand, enjoying a very slow morning with my girl. As I look out my window I can see frost covering the ground and I can't help feeling glad that I don't have to venture out into the cold today. Winters coming and I admit, I'm happy for every second I can avoid it. If only through not going outside, I'll do it! I hate feeling cold, whether being from just going from the car parking lot to my office (we're talking minutes here), or playing outside with mini-me (hours upon hours). Winter is N.O.T. my favourite season of the year!

So, here I am! Still sitting on the couch, watching the morning rays of the sun melting the frosty covers of our world away. This will be a good day. I will make this a great day. And I'll be spending it indoors, with the greatest little person I know! Showering her with love and attention.

From me to all of you

A big thank you for following me and reading all my blog entries. Somedays it's really beyond me that anyone would ever want to read what I've written (because it's so boring and everyday like - without any excitement what so ever)! But I'm thankful that you do, and obviously decide to come back. Perhaps it's me being ordinary and boring (everyday like) that makes you come back? Because I don't try to make it out as something else, something my life is not. What you see is what you get, nothing more - nothing less. Just me, right in front of you. 😃
 
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you! ❤️

Keep going

I promise you, this will not be a blog filled with inspirational workouts and living healthy tips (almost laughed my head of writing that and knowing who I am), but I just need to tell you that I didn't cave in. Although needing to fight with myself yesterday and not feeling as great as last week, I still went to my outdoor gym today. And I did good! Really good! I almost couldn't drive the car home because my arms was trembling so hard when lifting them to the steering wheel! And adding to that, my legs were like over boiled spaghetti! 😆
 
It's a really great gym, and today I was alone working out (not counting my little family).
 
I didn't feel totally into it when I left home, but coming there gave me energy! But, I have to get a membership at an indoor gym soon. It's going to snow this week, and I'm thinking that won't work well with the outdoor part of "gym".  ⛄️ 

Now I'm making dinner, galettes with smoked salmon, spinach, red onions, caviar and sour cream with lemon.  
What are you having for dinner today?

Proof

Well, now I know. I still hate running! 

It must have been a one time thing (last weeks success), because I had to fight my mind tonight, constantly arguing with myself on why I should continue on running and not stop! My body might have been protesting as well on occasions, but never enough to make me stop. 
But I'm not giving up! I'll keep on running a couple of times a week and eventually I just might like it! Or...? 
At least that feeling of being content and feeling proud afterwards, is worth all the fighting with myself! 😆

Biding my time

Saturday afternoon and I'm biding my time. I've been doing boring household stuff most of my day, so now I'm waiting for my body to get ready for a run (ate less than an hour ago and need to wait at least 45 minutes before I head out). So, I sit here pondering, about life in general. No specifics worth mentioning, just ordinary stuff. Some private and some not so much, but still not worth talking about.
 
I'm really hoping for a great run. You know, when every step feels light and the lungs are not struggling for air. Like you could go on forever! But, I haven't run all week so this will more likely be a test to know if my last run, and the high I got after it, was a one time thing (I've always hated running) or not. 

So, wish me luck!

Movie night date

Remember my last entry? Me getting of the grid to enjoy movie night and a big plate with watermelon? Well, as you know it's Friday. It's been a loooong week. Not that that's supposed to be an excuse, but it could explain some parts. What? Why? When? Well, the watermelon I did enjoy! Cuddling up with my hubby I enjoyed. And the first ten minutes of the movie I definitely enjoyed. Then it all went black! I might even have been snoring, sleeping like a baby on the couch! It might just be an age thing? I woke up just as the movie ended. Haven't got a clue if it was worth seeing or not. Though the beginning was ok, the ending seemed bad. So I'm guessing; no need to try and watch it another day. 😆
 
I'm still tired and it's almost midnight so I'm off to bed. Great Friday! Great date with hubby (at least I slept next to him)! We'll try again tomorrow! 😉

My precious

Two days, barely, that was all it took for me to get my phone back from the service store! Well, not really "back" as they actually replaced the old one. But I got "A" phone back! And I'm connected to the world again - and family, friends and foes can now reach me just as before. 
 
Now I'm soon off the grid again though. Movie night and a big plate of watermelon 🍉 awaits me! 😜

New publishing tool

I'm trying out a new publishing tool for my blog entries as I don't have access to my phone where I usually write all my entries. So this entry is written in the app Blogo for iPhone (my work phone). Seems to be working easily enough. No need to be a rocket science for this! 😜

I'll tell you about it when I've tried it out a bit more and learned all the specifics!

Lost contact

Today I lost contact with the world. Literally. I had to leave my iPhone at the service store so that they could fix my cracked screen. And obviously they don't just fix the screen, they'll replace it entirely. So ill be getting a new phone in 2-4 days. And it will cost med 3395 SEK (about 380 USD), except my home insurance covers everything above 1500 SEK, so it seems it won't set me back quite as much as I had initially thought. But, I'm still without my phone! Out of touch! Scary!

So, mum and Jezz, among others, if I'm not answering your phone calls or messages, now you know why!

And, I can't write you my blog entries over the phone anymore! That really sucks! So I hope you'll bear with me if the entries aren't published each day as before. I'll do my best though.

Pay it forward

Sometimes the heaviness of the miseries and anxieties that roams our world weighs on my shoulders, even though I'm not affected directly. Like it's transformed into a physical being or thing that grabs for me and push with all its might on my shoulders, trying to make me stumble and fall. To give in. To surrender to it. To be sucked into an existence where everything is difficult and hard. Where love is dark and weak. Where there are little hope of rescue.

We all fight battles. Some more than others. Some harder than others. Some fights are small, others life changing. Some are physical, others not. And some we win, some we lose. The important thing is to try. To fight! To never give up! To not carry that weight all alone.

And when you have won your fight and stand there, tall and high on your win, then fight for those around you! Those who are losing their struggles and their faith. Make some change! Help those who only see darkness, to see light. Help those hungry to eat. Give those suffering means to heal! Give those who have lost love - love. Comfort and care. Ease the weight on their shoulders.

To some, this is an effort not worth taking on. I respect that, I'm not sure I understand it, but I respect their choice. I can't help to wonder if it's because they don't have the energy or because they believe that they don't have the means to do it. I'm hoping  only very few chose not to do it because they don't care. Because I still believe we all carry with us a fundamental ability to care and feel. To sense the need. I must believe that, not to loose hope! 

Helping others doesn't have to cost you! Sometimes all you need is a smile! A smile to brighten the day for others! That smile might be their rescue! The act of kindness. An act of love. A sincere and simple smile! 
 
Pay it forward! Keep that smile on your face and trust in your ability to change the world while you do it!

Turning the page

As some of you might have read I had a really bad day yesterday. And yes, it's all about perspectives, I know it could have been far worse and that there are people suffering from lethal and/or chronic diseases, war and poverty. My problems might not be yours or anybody else's, but where I'm at, in that moment, it was a problem that was part in making my day bad for me.

Well, today I've turned the page. I've been positive (almost all day) and I've been keeping my focus on making my day count. And it did! It's all about attitude, right! I think this will be a great week! I'm going to do my best to make this a great week! Are you in?
 
And if all else fails you, just put on your crazy face and make people smile. All you need is a smile to start something good!

No funday, Sunday

I failed! I was beaten! By a hill! I'd decided to conquer the hill by running up and down at least 10 times. Well, that didn't happen! I made it through 4 times then my body was beaten! No, totally wasted actually! Completely burned out! But! I ran another four times in a hill less steep, so even though being beaten I tried my best to get something more out of my workout. And I'm not giving up! I'll try every week until I do manage those ten laps, up and down! 
And as if that bad feeling of defeat wasn't enough to ruin my funday, I managed to drop my iPhone straight down into the asphalt and cracked the screen. And, of course, it wasn't just a little crack. Noooo! When doing it bad, make it really bad! My entire screen is cracked, looking like a spider net of cuts! And as I have a iPhone 6S this will cost me! ☹️

So, I'm now trying to turn this bad day around so that at least I might end it in a good way! Fingers crossed!

Early morning battles

I'm up. No, not up - up. Just awake. I'm lying in my daughters bed, all alone, listening to the rain falling on the window sill. It's early. To early. It's cold. And it's still dark out. I'm mentally preparing myself for getting up, putting on my workout clothes (the really thick and warm ones) and leave to conquer a hill! That will be today's workout session. Running up and down that hill until my body forces me to stop. Not my mind. If my mind had any saying in this, I wouldn't leave this house or this bed! 😆
 
I'm just working on making my fingers losen it's grip on the pillow so that I can jump out of bed. It might take me another five minutes or so, but then I'm going. For real! Ok, maybe ten minutes, but then I'm going! Promise!

Great friends

Today I met up with a former colleague and friend. We haven't met since May 2015, so it was long over due. 
We met up at a "konditori" (patisserie-based coffee house) here in Uppsala, named "Fågelsången", for what we call a "fika". That means we met for some coffee and biscuits or other sweets (or sandwiches). We had so much to catch up on and the time flew by! We parted with a promise that our next date, or fika, won't be a year away! ❤️

It's strange how you realise when meeting old friends that you miss them, but in your everyday life you just accept them not being there with you. Of course they're on your mind and in your heart, but they're not physically with you. I don't have a ton of friends but those that I have, I try to cherish the best I can and I try to make them feel my love through all available channels, like phone, mail, FB, Instagram and such. Anyway, I'll do my best to keep in touch this time (other than on FB or Instagram)! 
 
Besides meeting up with my girl, I've been going through old boxes today. And I found my old diaries! My gosh, the things i could read in those! I'm blushing just talking about it! I might actually have been in love with every boy in this world! And these diaries are from 1985 and onwards, so I wasn't even a teenager yet! There seems to have been nothing small and unimportant in my life during those years! My hormones were clearly running amok! And a simple question of going to the movies or not was HUGE! I could write pages on that issue, trying to find reasons for going and identifying reason my parents would say no - and then finding solutions for that! So funny to read. Maybe they'll come in handy for me as a tutorial when mini-me reaches that age! 😆
 
I also found a lot of old photos. Like this, of me, my twin sister and our super cool dad! Love this picture! ❤️ Can you tell which one is me?

Friday night bubbles

I've had a great day at work today, really great! I love that feeling of accomplishment when you leave work, especially on a Friday. What a great start on my weekend! And I got my car back, as good as new! A new bumper, some new paint and a new hitch! That equalled three days of work although they'd told me it would take up to a week. So I'm super happy! 
 
I took mini-me to the stables this afternoon and she had so much fun riding a super cute little pony named Simon. I think he's a Welsh pony and he has the cutest face! As it's really cold outside and the children went riding in the forest (parents need to tag along and lead the horses) I almost froze my butt off! So when I got home, and after feeding mini-me and putting her to bed I laid down in a hot bubble bath! Really hot. So hot I could only stand it for twenty minutes! 😜 So now I'm feeling completely relaxed and warm! 

Tomorrow I'm meeting up with a former colleague and friend. I haven't seen her since May last year so I'm really looking forward to our date and giving her a big hug!

Now I'm going to lay in bed and enjoy the moment!

Fighting back

My leg muscles has been feeling really sore all day! Every time I moved them I had to hold my breath not to whimper out of pain. So, when I got home I decided to challenge them a bit with a power walk. But it was to dark out and almost no people around so I decided to run instead. And my goodness, it felt great! I felt super strong! I'm so proud of my self! ❤️
 
I had to stop at one point because I passed by such a beautiful tree! 
 
Now I'm tucked into bed and will surely spend the rest of the evening high on the feeling of the run! Whoop whoop! 😎
Let's just hope my muscle soreness will be gone completely by tomorrow!

Muscle soreness

The funny thing about exercising quite irregularly is that you in some strange way manage to forget the pain you get in your muscles afterwards! Maybe it's like giving birth, you forget the pain so that you will have another child again without being stopped by the memories of the agonising pain! My legs truly hate me today! And so does my butt, my back, arms and shoulders! 😂
 
So, I'm resting. Trying not to move. An inch. At all. 
 
So, that's what I'll be doing tonight! N.O.T.  M.O.V.E.

I'll be sure to say thanks

I didn't crawl up the stairs, but it wasn't that far off! He really challenged my body, and I did good! My legs and arms feels like spaghetti and I can already feel the muscles starting to hurt.
 
I'm preparing for muscle pain tomorrow. And the day after that. And even a day or two after that as well. I'll give it a maximum of four days, then I'm headed out again! Game on, old lady!

Shocker

You're not going to believe me, but I'm actually off for my second training session in two days! Shocker, I know! 😆
 
But today I'm actually a bit anxious as my bestie, who's a PT, is taking me to an outdoor gym! I tried to tell him I'm an old, delicate lady (lazy bitch) who has been neglecting her body's need for exercise for some time, but he refuses to hear anything about that! I'm actually worried that that made it worse! He's going to make me beg for mercy!!! 😂
 
So I put on my fancy pants, hoping they'll make me feel better when I crawl up the stairs to my house again! I mean, at least I looked great crawling! 😆

Monday bubbles

I had a great day at work today, productive and fun! But in some ways really difficult. That is what I love about my work and the role of leadership. It's a constant trial that keeps me on edge and aware. But, this is not that kind of a blog! I will not discuss either difficulties nor challenges, or ways of reaching goals and achievements (leader or not)! This blog is about me, and the very essence of me, off from work. Nothing else. Or at least very little of other stuff! 😉
 
I know it's only Monday, but I couldn't resist a bubble bath (as if those are reserved for a special weekday😂)! And my back had nothing to do with it today! I'm just a bit sore after my run yesterday, so I thought some bubbles would make my leg muscles happy! I've made a date with my bestie tomorrow, whom just happens to be a PT. we're going for a power walk, and obviously he's chosen to take me to an outdoor gym... I'm going to hurt all over when he's done with me! But that's ok! I'm really determined to get in shape now. Preferably til I leave for Vietnam in two months! My goal is this:
 
This is me, 5 years back, on Maya Beach, close to Phi Phi Islands in Thailand. I'm hoping I'll be able to make it happen. Weight wise I'm probably already there. I just need to get some muscles back in the right places, like my core! 

But for now I'm enjoying my bubbles!

Surprisingly easy

We're leaving for a three week holiday over Christmas and New Years Eve. I'm sure I've told you this already. So, in an attempt to fit into my new bikini I thought I should start working out! Well, that and building back muscles in my body so that I might get rid of my back pains (I kind of already fit in the bikini). 
 
So, surprise, surprise, I made it happen today! I went out for a power walk, but it was so darn cold I ended up running! Not all the way, probably not even half of it, but I was surprised by how good it felt! To begin with. But give me a few weeks maybe I could run all the way! Anyway, after a shower, dinner and putting mini-me to bed I'm now resting in bed. The cold from being outside seems to have made its way into my bones! I'm freezing like crazy! So I'm in my pjs and already in bed. Slowly getting warm again! I think I might use the gym for my runs from now on! I'm living right next to the gym since our move, not more than a 100 meters away, so no more bad excuses! 😜

Play date

So, mini-me isn't sadden at all today about not having her bestie here for a sleepover. Why? Because another friend came picking her up after breakfast and now she's off on another play date! 
 
So now I have some unexpected free time! And I'll be spending it drinking a bucket of chai latte and eating chocolate while watching "Luke Cage" on Netflix! Whoop Whoop!

Change of plans

Today mini-mes best friend came over to spend the night. Both girls first ever sleepover! They were both super excited and it all started of great! But, around dinner time mini-mes bestie started to complain about pain in her nose and throat, and her eyes became shimmery. She didn't really eat anything at dinner and when I checked her temperature she had a high fever. So we called her parents alerting them and then put both girls in the car and brought her back home. The girls were both really disappointed but surprisingly not in tears. They both understood that the bestie needed to be back with her parents and seemed content in knowing we'll try the sleepover thing another day! 
 
So, I've just put mini-me to bed and I'm planning on spending my night as I did yesterday, in my happy place! Snuggled up in my PJs on the couch and with the laptop on my knees. I think I might even throw in a cup of tea, a blanket and some lit candles as well, to make the most of it! ❤️

Happy place

I spent my night writing. It's been a while since I wrote, and every time I sit down to do it I regret not doing it regularly, like everyday. How can I forget that this is what makes me happy? 
 
And of course I didn't sit at my desk. As always I sat down in my bed (might change between bed and sofa to be honest), and I listened to singer/songwriter Melissa Horn while writing. She's like my personal Muse. With her beautiful voice in my ears the words just keeps flowing out of me. It gets me in the right mood instantly! 

I hope that I'll be spending tomorrow night doing the same thing, and I truly hope I can keep this up!

Deliveries

I've had a long and productive day at work today, and I really like the feeling you get when you deliver reports that's been bugging you for ages to be finish off. You know, those that you postpone as you've the time on your side and you rather work on other stuff because it's an easier task! 😆 Well today I finished it! And in time I might add! The deadline is Tuesday next week so I still had a few days on my side! 
 
But it came with a prize! I got the headache from hell! I think it's the car accident from last week that's trying to make its presence known. My muscles are aching in my back when I sit in front of the computer to long and I'm being sloppy with my exercises the doctor gave me. It's my own fault, I know, but I get so occupied with whatever I'm doing and forget to take care of my injuries. I'll try to be better though, I don't want to have back pain AND headaches!

Now I'm going to lie down on the sofa, reading a report from work. I didn't have the time to do it while at work. And tomorrow seems to give me no meeting free time in the calendar so this is the only way I'll be able to read it before Friday. Sooo...

Kitchen stuff

We're taking it one day at a time, step by step. Checking of things on our "to do" list. Yes, I'm talking about our renovation of the apartment. And yes, it's still not finished. Yes, it's taking like forever! But! At least we're seeing progress! Like today when we finally got the hood in place over the kitchen counter!
 
I'm sorry about the bad lighting in the picture but I forgot to take a picture in daylight after our handymen had finished. I'll show you that another day. Charlie the cat was really curious about the new thingy, so he jumped up on the counter although he's not allowed to be there. 😼

Anyhows, baby steps taken yet again today and tomorrow I'll call the electrician and have her come over to finish of the kitchen! After that it's just the bathroom left, and we're still to decide if we're going to renovate it or not. I want to change the tub to a larger one, and I want to change the washbasin too. And the cabinet. And the toilet. Well, maybe not all of those things, I've got to think this through a little longer before making any decisions. The kitchen is still top priority! 

Now I'm off to bed, it's been a long day and my neck/back hurts like ... (something really unpleasant)!!!

Monday

First day of the week. Monday. It might be my least favourite day of the week! I'm a Friday person! I like the feeling of knowing that I have two whole days of rest and family time to look forward to at the end of the workday! That's a great motivator, and together with the fact that I only have a few hours left to be done with all my tasks/problems/issues for the week, it just gives me so much energy! Like a constant adrenaline rush! 👍🏻
 
So, this is my Monday night mood! A bit bored. No! Scratch that! I'm super bored! Mini-me is watching YouTube (How many times can you watch another child open a Kinder egg???), and I've just finished a chai latte with a bit to much sugar (bad for you but sooo tasty), so maybe it's the sugar rush that makes me bored! All filled with energy (spiked blood sugar), and nothing to do! Well, actually, scratch that last bit as well. There's always things to do, like cleaning or ironing for example, but I'm not in mood to do those things! I want to do something fun! I just don't no yet what that would be! And next up is to put mini-me to bed so I guess I'll just have to ignore this feeling and go with the flow! Knowing it's just sugar induced and therefore most probably will be gone within fifteen minutes! 😜

Sunday funday, för whom?

Today I'm going to tell you something that some of you might not like, at all. Something that possible might fuel a discussion amongst some that I am a bad mother. You see, I really, really don't like playing with mini-me. I'm lousy at it, and maybe that's what's causing my inability to interact in her playing. I much rather sitt watching her play than participating myself. Sure, I can sitt and draw with her, build with her Lego, read a book (which I do at least once a day) or make pearl necklaces and stuff like that. But actually playing, it's just not my thing! Does that make me a bad mother? I don't think so, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are people out there that does.

And while I'm on the subject, I'm not always super fond of spending half my Sundays on her activities (tennis and swimming lessons) either! Of course I wouldn't let her know that, and I always go with her knowing she really loves it! But, I could think of a lot of things I would rather do to make Sundays fundays for me too! And before anyone ask, yes I love her (more than words can express) and no I don't regret being a mum! I'm just trying to put a perspective on things! I'm not one of those mothers that are willing to give up themselves to be a great mother. I believe my daughter will benefit more, in every way thinkable, if I stay true to myself and admit that I am still the person I was before having our precious little girl. That means I still like to do grown up things and be alone now and then. Time that not always include her. And I think I'm a better mother for owning up to that, and that my love for her will be even stronger because of it as I'm allowing myself to admit to sometimes being bored and not lie about it! My daughter knows she's my everything, and I tell her everyday how much I love her and how amazing I think she is! I'm confident that me not always participating in her play (or being bored when watching her play tennis), won't hurt her or our relationship! Quite the opposite, actually! ❤️

What was I thinking

So I just ate a ridiculous amount of chocolate ice cream and now I'm freezing my butt off! I knew it was a bad idea 💡, I hate being cold! 😂
 
But I won't lie to you, it was delicious, all chocolately, sugary and creamy! 😜
Who doesn't love chocolate? And in combination of ice cream? Well "heavenly" is what comes to mind! ❤️

So now I'm going to warm myself up again and enjoy the rest of my evening, with no more ice cream but reading 📖!

Dreams

I dreamt about my grandfather last night. He was trying to tell me something but I wasn't able to hear or understand him. It was very frustrating and really heartbreaking, and I felt sad when I woke up. Like I needed to hear what he was trying to tell me, like it was more important than anything. So this morning he's in my thoughts constantly and I miss him terribly!
 
I know I've told you this before, but both my grandfather and grandmother were really important in my life as I grew up. A safe heaven of sorts. There are a lot of reason of why, and I won't get in to all of them, some are just to private and some probably not interesting enough to talk about. But, they anchored me and made me feel safe, and that was a big part of why! And of course their unconditional love ❤️ for me. 
 
My grandfather was a writer and a poet. He would walk by my open window at night as he was going into the park to sit on a bench and write. I would listen to the sound of his steps on the gravel path and longing to go with him! I knew exactly where he would sit down and I knew he would wait for his companion in the night, an owl that sat in the magnificent oak just beside the bench. And there he would spend hours writing and thinking, and how I wished I could have sit next to him then! I remember trying my best to stay awake until he came back, but I don't think I ever made it happen. Much of whom I've become is because of him! I have the same restless soul that he had and I wished I had a bench of my own to go to at night. I'm sure that I too would make magic happen in the company of an owl! ❤️

He died a few years back, and I still miss him every single day. I can still remember his scent and the sound of his heartbeat as I felt it when resting my head on his chest when he hugged me! And as he's not here anymore I cherish those memories and keep him alive in my mind and heart! And inside of me, he's always sitting on that bench, happy and content, in the company of the night and the sounds and creatures that gave his restless soul some peace!

I love you, granddad! ❤️ I hope I get the message tonight! Please try again!

Friday bubbles

It's Friday and a great one I might add! I cut my workday short, ending it at two (not counting the hour I worked tonight before dinner) and took mini-me to the stables and her riding lesson! I love going there! No matter how tired I am when coming there I always leave happy and full of new energy. More so when I'm doing the horseback riding myself, but it's almost the same watching mini-me learning! 
 
On my way from work to pick up mini-me from kindergarten and it's like swallowing a happy pill! 

But, I've actually had a lot of aches and pain in my back today, worsening in the afternoon, so I just lay down in a hot bubble bath to try to relax the muscles! 
 
I love bubble baths, and those of you who knows me by now is familiar to this fact! A few lit candles, a hot bubble bath and my Kindle...well, that alone makes my day! ❤️

Please! Hold your thumbs for me to have a pain free sleep tonight! I need it badly! 🤕 A few more pages in my Kindle first though. 📚

Laters babes!

Accident

I never arrived to work this morning. Almost there My car got hit from behind by another vehicle at a red light. My hitch got speared into the other cars engine room and made us unable to move either car. We were completely stuck! After the police and tow truck arrived and did their thing my car was freed and I managed to drive home (after solving all the insurance issues with the lady hitting my car). And, in hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have driven home by myself! The adrenaline high I'd been on since the crash, dissolved fast while driving back and I were in tears all the way home. When I finally got a hold of my husband I'd been crying constantly for over an hour and my neck and back was throbbing with pain. So, my husband came back home immediately and drove me to the emergency room where I stayed for five hours, going through different exams and an MRI scan of my neck. When they finally let me go, they'd decided that my pain was due to strained muscles and not damaged spine/neck. I can't tell you how happy that made me! Although of course I would rather have no pain at all, but...
 
Now I'm back in my bed and will hopefully have a good night sleep, with as little pain as possible. I got a strong painkiller prescribed by the doctor, but I'll try not to use them! 

Be safe! And be careful on the road!

Back home

I'm back home! Had a great day and ending to our two days of management team strategy meeting. And all I can say is I love my job! And of course I have the best of colleagues! I feel truly blessed to be working with so many amazing people and being surrounded by so much knowledge! It's a true privilege!

But, two days of really intensive and hard work has taking its toll! I feel spent! So, I've already ended my evening and climbed into bed and plan to spent a few hours reading before turning in for the night! Tomorrow is yet another long day at work, packed with meetings! So I need my rest! 
 
And I'm still super happy with my picture wall in the bedroom. This is what I see when looking up from my side of the bed! Love it! 
And this would be T he super tired version of me! With my game face washed off! Hope I don't scare you off!

Long day

A long day is coming to its end and I'm totally whacked! 😳
I just got back to my hotel room after a intense day with our management team and the only thing I want to do now is to sleep! Don't misunderstand me, it's been a really great day, but I'm so tired that my eyes fight me to stay closed every time I blink! I'm looking forward to tomorrow though when we continue on our strategy planning!

Results

I finished putting up the pictures in my bedroom today! It only took me like four weeks! 😜
So now the bedroom is just lacking curtains, but I'm not completely sure yet that I'm going to put up some. I like when the windows are "naked" and can let in as much light as possible.

I put up the pictures in the guestroom as well, but I forgot to take pictures of that so I'll have to show you that another day!

Tomorrow I'm leaving home for a conference with my management team and will be bake home again on Wednesday night. The agenda is packed, so I'll have little to no time to blog. But, of course I'll try! Now I need to pack my bag!

In love

I love my Kindle.

An epic romance! 

This is how I like to spend my days! While others workout, do gardening or housework, chat and drink coffee with friends on Sundays, I just date my Kindle! As much as I possible can! ❤️❤️❤️
 
Just sayin!

Home sweet home

I'm back! And actually already unpacked! Sometimes I'm just unbelievably fast! 😆

It's been a great vacation, and although barely being home one hour so far, I'm missing the sun and warmth already! But! I'm sooo looking forward to sleeping in my own bed! Hopefully it'll be a good night sleep! Ive been up since five this morning. Mini-me woke me up after having a bad dream and I didn't fall back to sleep after that (but she did)! So, I truly need the sleep!
 
I don't know if you saw any of it, but it was a glorious sunset above the clouds this evening! Feel blessed to have seen it! ❤️
