This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
I can’t believe I caught a cold again! And without the kids being sick… It sucks and I know how hard these next days are gonna be. I can only cross my fingers and wish for it to go away!
The spring is here (as I probably have written before – but I’m getting closer to my 22nd birthday and my memory just isn’t what it used to be…) and it is so amazing! This weekend we turned the clocks one hour forward (which now means 8h of time difference from Sweden?) which means that once again, when I wake up at 6:30 the sun is not up yet. And it is sooo cold when I’m dropping off the girl at school at 9. This week I’ve changed clothes around noon just because the temperature changes so much! But I’m guessing in a few weeks it will be warm in the morning too.
When I dropped the girl off at school me and the boy drove to a community park my H-mum showed me yesterday. We went to the baseball field and played a type of “brännboll” (Burned Balls – In Sweden we have a game called “Burned balls. First you hit the balls and then you run like hell while the others try to burn you! Haha). We threw the ball to ourselves and hit the ball, ran as long as we could on the course before the other one got the ball (burned the other one). That we kept doing for several laps. One of us hitting the ball for one lap. When we were done and had to go home to make lunch a guy who was cutting the grass started to speak with us. “I’ve been working here for three years and this is the first time I’ve ever seen a mum playing baseball with her son here!” Do I look that old?
In my short freetime today I wanted to be out in the sun reading. But after about 40 minutes I heard a brumming noise. The gardener wanted to cut the grass. So on this beautiful afternoon I was inside watching Terra Nova… Think I’m gonna skip the gym tomorrow (because I’m sick) and give it another shot in the backyard.
After the girls first competitive soccer practice I drove home and made dinner. I didn’t have much time so I did creamed macaronis and meatballs. Very appreciated :). Next week I’m thinking about doing homemade pizza!
Now I think I’m gonna grab the rest of my Ben & Jerry’s and go to bed. It’s hard trying to be healthy when you’re feeling bad…
