SUNLIGHT INJECTION DOES WONDERS FOR MOOD, STORY AT 10

Slow grey headachy start to the day, but halfway through, the sun came out and my mood started improving, so much so that I feel like bouncing around and singing silly springs songs. Good thing my kids are already in bed so they can't expire of embarrassment. The other day when I came home and started making dinner, they were lying around the living room with their two favorite friends, watching The Simpson's (which...I'm of very mixed feelings about this. Not appropriate, I think. What do you think?) and while I was banging dishes about and slamming the microwave door and pulling things out of the fridge I started yodeling at the top of my lungs: the Frito Bandito song. Halfway through the first verse, I heard both kids yell "MOOOOM! Sandra and Maritza are here!"

"SO?" I yodeled back, "I AM THE FRITO BANDITO! La la la, la la la, la la la la LA! AY YI YI YI!"

Muahahaha! If there is a Most Embarrassing Mother On The Planet Award, that sucker is MINE.

Good For a Giggle: Cafena

The dragons are up on the Karin's wall, and they are HUGE. They cover an entire wall from floor to ceiling. Anders is done with all the renovation work of sanding, spackling, wallpapering and painting, and now we have to go get her new furniture, but I'm not sure we'll get it all done before we leave on Sunday for a week in Stockholm. We're staying at Långholmen, which is a prison in central Stockholm that was converted to a hotel after it closed in 1975. Since the kids have never been, we're going to stuff as much as possible in to our 4 days: castle, Wasa Museum, Skansen, Gröna Lund, etc. I am really hoping the weather will cooperate and that we don't have to contend with cold & snow while we're there, but April in Sweden is never a sure thing so we'll probably have to pack one of everything.

Anyway, in regards to Karin's room, part of me wants to wait with posting photos until everything is in place...but I suspect the suspense on the red / dragons is killing some of you. Evil me is in charge right now, so no photos tonight anyway. Muahahahaha!

AY YI YI YI !
