Grandma style

So, I finally gave in yesterday after lunch I decided to go home and rest. The blizzard just kept going and sadly the trains home, did not. Just my luck. I got home after a never ending journey of waiting, freezing, did I mention it is 10 F (-12 celcius) outside and a storm so I felt like finding a dead animal I could gut and crawl inside to find heat. #starwars #dicaprio

I did not find any animal so I had to freeze until I got home. Gotta love public transportion in Sweden…

So I got home and after digging my way thru the glaciar that was once my driveway and I realized that no car could park here. The town is’nt big enoug for both of us. One had to go and it was not me. So with a fever in my body I would have attacked this dispickable natural disaster called Snow with some sucsess, if not my darling children had played with the shovel somewhere outside before they left home for a week. The shovel was gone after all so I took a spade and started working. I felt like I was digging myself out of Alcatraz with a plastic disposable spoon… needless to say I gave up and went in to slip in to something More comfortable.

Don’t how it always is that as soon as I get sick, I age 45 years and I end up looking like I just got lost from a nursing home. My face melts in to a sad mess, my hair is a disaster and my clothes are just so sad. But comfort is key while in bed right?

I can not be the only one?

Reuse futniture

In out new house we found this old bench from a school. I just knew I had to keep it and I decided it got to be toystorage for my little boys. I love the way it looks all old and used. It gives the room a retro feel.

Not only is it cute it is reused. Love recykled items. Not sure if I should give it a bit of a makeover or leave it as it is.

What do you think?

The Boxer

I am the boxer… I am boxing everything in sight. Luckily my kids have managed to stay out of being boxed in but we´ll se about that. The house is a freaking mess and it is really getting on my nerves. But trying to see things on the bright side, I don´t have to clean this house after the move. A cleaning company is doing that for us. Thank you very much!

All the boxes upstairs are color coded so that we know what goes where but all the boxes in the downstairs room is not color coordinated yet so that is my job today after I finish up my schoolwork for today.

Can you belive there is a window back there? This room is filled to the brink soon and so is my patiens. I am so glad the new house have so much storage room we can put all boxes in there so we don’t have to have boxes all over the place while unpacking.

Since we are finally on the last week in the old house I felt it ok to bag all my clothing on hangers. Why waste boxes on things you can move from one rack to another?

Hm… I see a disturbing lack of pink in my wardrobe. I´ll have to fix that when spring comes.

New blog

Hey y´all!

Feels like forever ago I blogged and so much has been going on since my last blog I decided to get a brand new blog. New life – new blog. Makes sense? All right!

I am so glad you are here and I am so happy to finally have the energy (and time… nah, who am I kidding? I don´t have time for blogging but it is fun) to start blogging again. I do love blogging and I decided to take up one thing I used to do and love before and start doing it again during 2018. Maybe running would have been the smarter choice but really..? It is winter in Scandinavia and the only people out running here are either crazy or getting chased by polar bears. Just saying…

So what have I been up to the past 3 years of not blogging? Let´s keep it short and sweet…

I was a single mom for a while and then remarried, moved to a different part of Sweden and I am graduating college in May after 2 years of student mom life.

And, we (the kids and my hubby) have sold our townhouse and bought a bigger home close by and we are moving within a month. I am so exited and there are a lot of good things going on so I can not wait to share it all with you in the future!

Gotta love living in boxes and still having the christmas tree up. I do love Christmas but not even I keep the tree up for this long normally…

Can´t wait to get in to my new house so I can start organizing, decorating and you know, all the fun stuff with moving houses. But right now, I just wanna take all the stuff that is left to pack and burn it on a stake cuz this is just the worst part… Why do we have so much stuff anyway?

Hej då!
