Oh my goodness, where did the week go? It went into single-parenting, crazy busy work-ness, losing Karin in the dark trying to find the place she was practicing in Lund.

It went to a planning meeting, pizza 3x in a row, a family birthday party (Anders' niece), phone calls, sunshine and a yard full of pheasants and jackdaws eating the birdseed.

It went to working from home as much as possible, paying bills, translation work, AWC web work, work work work.

It went to grocery shopping and an emergency room visit for Karin who busted up 2 fingers at soccer practice 2 days ago.

It went to a soccer team party where Karin danced all the slow dances exclusively with her new boyfriend and an evening of sushi and laughter with Martin. It went to watching the final episode of The Pillars of the Earth, so good! It went to Anders coming home last night and more sunshine.

And today it's going to shoe shopping for Martin, grilling at Karin's overnight soccer camp (for Anders), Earth Hour learning to play Settlers of Catan (for Martin & me), and more translation work, web work, work work work.

You got lots and lots on that there plate. But long as I've known you, you have. I also see lots of wonderful social stuff and parenting stuff...Ouch hospital...But not JUST work, right?

No, but sure feels like a LOT of it just all areas of my life!

Mine is Work work, along with preparation for next year as the Rotary Club prez...wish I weren't on board for that one, I can tell you...My kids are grown. Natasha lives in New York, soon to be The City, where she'll be getting a PhD. Raf lives in the next city, 20 mins away, but as you know, is still, at 29, in need of a Mom from time to time. It's not the constant Mom Job though, for either of them. So I can spend most of yesterday and most of today catching up on my Work work. I need those social events though. And the walks. And the exercise to stave off back problems.

Wow. I am tired and I am not even YOU. How are Karin's fingers? And EXCLUSIVE dancing? I am still in denial, you know. It sounds like you are well on your way to meeting deadlines, at least I hope so. Anders is home already? It seems like he just left. Hope his trip was successful.

We have sun again today too, and it leaves a smile on my face. I wish the temperature would be as cooperative.

I loved this post. You have such a way with words...

Still can't move them, but the swelling has gone down. Decided to wait a few more days to see if they improve before we go back to the hospital.

oy..I got a little stressed just from reading your entry! :)

haha! It'll blow over long as I don't tell you what THIS week has scheduled! :D

That sure sounds like a BUSY week!

Right now, they ALL are! :D

I know the feeling. I am really looking forward to halfway May when I am done with my graduation research and thesis. Still have some other courses to finish this semester but at least the biggest stressor will be gone then. :)

New boyfriend!? Eek. They grow up so fast.

Sounds like another busy week in Lizland.

Hope Karin's fingers heal quickly and well.

Well, first REAL boyfriend, as these things go. It's terrifying!

And yep, another busy week...and yet another now!


You'll enjoy Settlers!


We loved it! :) What a fun game!

Wow, busy times! And maybe a little exciting/terrifying, too, with your daughter starting teen life, boyfriends, and all!
