September 8th, 2004



No new jobs to apply for today. Reached that conclusion after 1 hour at "work." Guess it's websurfing and blogging for the rest of the day. suck Actually, I have stuff to do, it's just not stuff I care about at the moment.

Karin and I went for a walk last night after dinner. Anders and Martin had also left the house about 5 minutes before we did, as Anders needed to deliver a notebook of information on Scouts to the other father that is going to be a co-leader. So, as we came around the corner of the daycare, we saw them up ahead of us just turning on to the snail trail. So, we hallooed and waved at them. After we got on the snail trail, Karin ran to catch up with them and we all walked together out the sunlit end. Then Karin and I headed toward the Scouthouse and up to Flyinge's own runestone, where we took some pictures, and when we came back out to the center of town, we saw Anders and Martin again up ahead of us nearly at their destination, so we hallooed and waved again.

Down we went to the mini-violet net and the nasturtiums and took more pictures before heading up Tulpanvägen*, where, surprise, surprise, we saw Anders and Martin AGAIN! So we hallooed and waved once more and they waited for us, and we walked home together. The other father wasn't home, so they had just dropped off the papers for him.

Pictures, if they came out well, will be forthcoming.

Liz: *telling an elaborate story* ...and you know my favorite black shirt? the one with the scoop neck and 3/4 sleeves, that I wear all the time?
Anders: *patient, but blank look*...No.
Liz: *pause*
Liz: *laughing head off* That was such a girl question and such a guy response!

Things I Do Well: walking fast, laughing, washing dishes
Things I Don't Do Well: playing stupid, dusting, going to bed at a decent hour
Things I Want to Do Well: parenting, writing, being a good friend
Things I Don't Give a Rat's Ass About: climbing the corporate ladder, learning to drive stick, the details of your sex life

Ja, Må Hon Leva Uti Hundrade År! Happy Birthday to studiozoe!

*All the roads in our neighborhood in Flyinge are named after flowers or trees. We used to live on Blomstervägen which translates almost literally as The Floral Way, and now live on Platanvägen which is Sycamore Road. Tulpan is Swedish for tulip.
