Looking forward to: sushi, bookfiend chatting, choir
I have to stop playing around on LJ when I'm supposed to be working.
John and Simone made and gave me a bag of beans for Christmas. That sounds so funny! But it's the kind of bag that you put in the microwave or freezer to help with various aches and pains. Yesterday, I nuked that sucker on high and then draped it over my cold blue curled paws. Then I rested it on my feet while I was working at the computer. Then I stuck it under the covers to warm up the bed. The best thing is that when you heat it up it smells like fresh bread.
The kids called last night, and apparently all's well in the snowy north, although Anders said Karin has been having a crisis of confidence and not wanting to go to ski school the first 2 days. It went better yesterday though, and he's hopeful she'll be fine the rest of the week. They all sound like they're having fun. :) It's so funny talking to the kids on the phone. Most of the talking is on my side, because otherwise they just sit there and don't say anything. You have to ask direct questions to get them started and keep them going. But still, most of their contribution to the conversation goes thusly: "yes. yes. no. yes. yes. yes. watching TV. yes. okay. I love you. Hej då!"
