zird is the word [userpic]
FBAR: forms for the past 6 years have been completed, printed, ready to copy & mail in...what a load off my mind!

Double Dog Dare: Swedish Citizenship application has been mailed in! I've heard everything for turnaround time from 2 weeks to 8's hoping for shorter, since I need my passport back by May.

Family: off on their ski vacation; so I have the house to myself until Thursday night!

Game: The whole family is addicted to Draw Something. Do you have it on your iPhone or iPad? It's like Pictionary in your pocket!

Barky: losing it. The amount of hair I'm shedding daily is beginning to seriously alarm me. If I didn't have TONS of the stuff, I'd swear I ought to be bald by now.

Sun: SPRING is coming, I can feel it. Even if it's freezing cold out there; it is starting to feel like spring is really on the way. Sunny gorgeous blue-sky days!

Trips: Getting excited about travel plans for this year. So far, I have a 1-day trip to a tradeshow in the UK, a week in Singapore (!), a weekend in Italy, a little over a week in northern Germany with my first family (yay!), a 2-week trip to Boston, and the hope to be in Michigan for Christmas. It's a jet-setting year, for sure.

Clutter-clearing: So far, I have tackled the closets in the computer room with more or less success and have filled 2 paper bags with books. Next up: kids' clothes and closets and the art chests!

Psst! My friend Christina's book is available for pre-order! A Field Guide to Now Squee!
mood: cheerful
music: birds chirping outside

So, I have MANY closets over here when you are done with yours. Can you be here, say, on Tuesday? That would be great. You can just add the ever trend-setting "Minnesota" to your jet-setting.

I am so excited that your "to do" is getting to be "DONE!" I have a long list with work first, but hopefully Laundry will come up quick. It needs to be done!

And YAY for Christina's BOOK! Yay! Yay! Yay!

Re: From Megsie

hahaha! I wish I could come over and see you, and maybe even help with a closet or two. I'm feeling only half motivated at the moment. Filled another bag with books for the media sale, though.


When is the 2 week Boston trip? And Grandma was just asking about your possibility of beeing here for Christmas- hope it works as I've told all of your Uncle's family so they can consider being in Michigan! Love, Lizardmom

I don't know dates yet, Mom, but most likely around Labor Day :) I will be contacting Donna-Sue this week to discuss, so hope to have confirmed dates soon!


How about making it a whole US tour - Boston, Michigan, Minnesota, Kansas? Seriously though, we've got to meet some day and I imagine Sweden is a heck of a lot more interesting than Kansas to visit!


It would be fun to meet, for sure! I don't foresee Minnesota or Kansas in my near future, though. I think you should all come over here! :)

Yay! for finishing important paper work like FBAR & Swedish citizenship, spring and temporary aloneness and clutter clearing and trips and...Such wonderful things! You deserve to treat yourself to something nice!
