LAZY FIRST DAY OF THE YEAR
We just watched the first episode of the 4th and last season of Bron and I don't know if I can take it, waiting for a WEEK to see what happens next, for SEVEN MORE WEEKS. It's like living in the 90s.

We had a nice New Year's Eve with a great dinner cooked by Anders that the kids stuck around for, before disappearing to parties in Lund. They both came home after lunch today and we had dinner together again. Nice! Especially considering that Martin is leaving in just a few days. Too fast!

It's been a pretty lazy day. We both slept in, and I've been reading and lazing around, doing pretty much nothing, like a real slug. Didn't clean a thing, didn't even do laundry, and took a nap again before Bron started. The kids and I tried to watch Loving Vincent this afternoon but it's not available yet so we ended up watching Sing (an animated film by the same people who did Despicable Me), which was cute and funny but very lightweight.

I'm looking forward to having this week off, actually, though I am waiting for some answers about a presentation I'm in the middle of, and hope I get them, so I can put the finishing touches on it and send it off for review. I'm also waiting for the AWC editor to send me the articles for January's newsletter...we're already late, so I hope she answers soon. I've got plans for things to get done this week, or least things to get started this week, so it won't be a totally lazy week off, but I'm okay with that. I need to go through books and see if there is anything that I want to donate to our AWC media sale at the end of this month. Usually I have several bags of books to donate, but this year, so far, I only have TWO. Reading more on the Kindle has made a difference there!

And I plan to start editing my 2017 LJ book. Plus Anders' mom gave us her sewing machine so I'm hoping to get Martin to help me figure out how to use it tomorrow to repair a couple of pairs of pants. He and Karin both learned how to use one in elementary school, and he claims he still remembers how. I am CLUELESS so I hope he does!

Even though I love to knit and crochet, I hate sewing. I even hate sewing the knitting and crocheting ends into the finished work. I have always wanted to learn how to use a sewing machine, but it is daunting. I will be on pins and needles to see how you do! (See what I did there?)

I have today and tomorrow and part of Thursday before going back to work for the semester. I have nothing done at all, and plan to keep it that way as long as possible. I put off my home life all the time for school, it is time to do my laundry and put Christmas away. It is kind of killing me.

I hate sewing, too. Always have! Luckily, both my children got their sewing machine licenses in elementary school and Martin sewed up the pants I needed help with! Yay!

"Didn't clean a thing, didn't even do laundry, and took a nap"

Who are you? And what have you done with Liz?

Trying to live up to your definition of slug! haha!

Sewing machine -I should have taught you -but I quit sewing when you at age 2 -insisted on counting all the pins in my project while I was trying to push it through the sewing machine! It's a great thing to know however- so good luck! It's not hard -IF the machine thread is working right.
Love, Lizardmom

Aren't they all different anyway? No worries, Martin fixed everything for me!

Gosh, thanks for the reminder about 'Bron' or 'Broen' or whatthehellever! :-D

And, yeah, using a Kindle has made a huge difference in books and magazines arriving here for the couple of years now I've had it. As in they haven't, and I haven't stopped reading! :-D
