Today is the day I thought we'd be leaving for the States. I had the wrong date in my head for 3 months, because I'm stupid about numbers that way. I had the day we RETURN mixed up with the day we LEAVE. Anyway, we are NOT leaving today, we are leaving tomorrow, and while I'm feeling good about the state of readiness we're in, I'm getting that little extra frisson of jumpiness that makes me want to leave NOW.

The laundry is all done and folded but not put away. Martin and Emily were here last night until MIDNIGHT, but it was okay because we got done all the things we had planned to get done. Anders finished the playhouse 99%, it just needs glass/plexiglass in the windows and a bit of trim put on its little porch. It's like a little miniature house out of a story...which is exactly how it was planned. Martin wanted the house to look like Pettson's house. Pettson is the man who lives with Findus the cat (my user icon) in a series of wonderful, beautifully illustrated Swedish children's books by Sven Nordqvist. Pettson's house is brick red with a black roof and white trim around the windows. It has a green door with a diamond-shaped window in it and a little veranda porch with benches on each side. And now, we have its little mini-me version in our backyard. Pictures will be posted upon return from the States with our new digital camera, but for now you can see a shot of it in an earlier stage:

Karin is at a birthday party, and Martin is hanging on my mouse arm alternately asking when I'm done and if we can look at the funny eggs. Anders went to the garbage dump and then to work for a couple of hours. I am going to eat lunch in a little bit and then pack suitcases and toys and then we are going to friend's for dinner.

Countdown: 1 DAY! woo hoo!

Happy Birthday Wishes to sandykins57 and slxception!
