11:11:11 11/11/11

My kids tell me I'm supposed to make a wish at 11:11 today, because it's 11/11/11 (even if you write it the way the Swedes do: year/month/date and not the way the Americans do which is date/month/year).

I missed the first 11:11 today, even though I did think about it, only it was only 10:32 when I thought about it and then I got absorbed in the major presentation that I was revamping and forgot about everything else until someone said it was lunch time. I feel like this has been an incredibly long, hard week of work and I am really, really glad it is the weekend. I just made a to-do list for OTHER stuff besides the 2 page to-do list of work stuff that I left on my desk at 5:30 pm when I finally left the office today.

3 good things about today:
Jokes and laughing with my boss and my teammates
Avocado & cottage cheese salad with salmon quiche for lunch
Fun dinner out with colleagues including my friend Lora from the US office

It's a busy weekend ahead for us. Karin has soccer practice and an innebandy match tomorrow morning, and Martin and I need to go to the mall. Anders' family is coming over on Sunday; his parents early in the afternoon so he can change all the tires on our 2 cars and theirs to winter tires, and then staying for dinner as it is Swedish Father's Day.

Plus I'm already working on a couple of Christmas presents and need to get moving on them. I have compiled the kids' wish lists as well as mine, but Anders hasn't given me ANY ideas at all.

Right now, however, I just want to go to bed and sleeeeeeep. My eyelids are so tired that it's almost painful to keep them up. My eyes are so tired that they're burning a little bit as I squint at the screen. And I think I'm coming down with Karin's cold: GAH. I haven't been sick in ages...I was hoping I could continue my healthy streak for longer.

So here is my wish for 11:11:11 on 11/11/11: I wish for myself and for all of you: a good night's sleep, a weekend that includes accomplishments and relaxation, sunshine and crossing things off your to-do list(s) and good things to look forward to.

PS: I just remembered it is Martin's name day today, so I went in and woke him up to wish him a happy one. :D

Also, MOM, where was THIS when we were looking at calendars??
