TORN BETWEEN TWO PROJECTS
aaagh!! Both my projects are calling me, and I'm not getting further on either one of them. I'm supposed to be working on the newsletter/website for the AWC update happening on Monday, and haven't even finished it. I still have to upload all the pages for the webwoman to double-check and I'm nowhere near finished. Keep sneaking away to rendevous with my...um...collage book. Must—fulfill—obligations—first.

I'm reading several other LJ's and saw that so many of you are taking Swedish classes, and didn't realize you were all so "new" to Sweden. I feel like that is very far behind me at the moment, although today I had a humiliating moment realizing how much I still have to learn (and always will) while Martin was playing his new Krakel Spektakel computer game, which plays with words, spelling and grammar in Swedish. I SUCKED! hahaha! :) I kept having to ask my 5-year-old, "what does that mean?" whereupon he'd translate it into English for me. How humbling.

Anders leaves for a business trip to Gothenburg tomorrow for 2 days, so I'm single-parenting. This means I have to get up extra early and fix breakfast for Martin as they eat breakfast at 7:15 at the school. and there's no way we could make it in time. SEVEN FIFTEEN!! Geez louise, what are they THINKING?! That's just wrong. I can barely move my butt out of bed by 7 most days, and the thought of eating at that point is just plain nauseating.

urm. well, we have a classifieds section on our members site that I can post something on (they get updated each month) that and on our message board as well. We don't sell advertising on our website or newsletter currently. I can also take my domino with me to the next monthly meeting in September (the one in August is Monday and I'm not sure it'll get here in time) and give you a plug. :)

do you want to give me specific text? I'll put in a personal plug, too. :) Can't promise any response, we have a semi-lethargic group sometimes.

Okay, I'll see what I can do. :)

No way anyone would be up at 7.15 in THIS house! I used to be a morning person, and in a lot of ways it is still my "best time" but a certain nameless Swede can't function until after 10am (and several cups of coffee!).

Well, you'd be proud of me then, I made it up at 6 a.m. in the yawning, and fixed breakfast for the kids and was out of the house by 7:30. Now, however, I'm exhausted and it's only 2 p.m.!!
