Pack, steal or borrow

Good morning lovelies! Monays are one of my favourite days. Why? Routines maybe. However there is a serious lack of routines when you are less than 2 weeks from moving houses. The house is a mess and it drives me crazy.

Went to Lidl to pick up some boxes to pack in since we are using a lot more boxes than we planned. Shocker right?! 😛

I also pack everything in the way I want them to be in the new house i.e not just shoving things in to boxes, but planning what goes in what box and what room the box is going in. I color code all the boxes so that come movingday, it is going to be easier knowing what goes where and what is in the boxes.

That also includes not packing any clothes or seasonal clothing that is dirty. So I am currently washing the kids rainsets so I can pack them as I am trying to get some studying done too. Busy bee here!

And I finally got myself a new hat. My darling daughter borrowed the one I decided to buy after years of trying to justify the price. And now it is nowhere to be found. Unless it shows up while moving, I guess I am not the only one who wanted that beanie… It really ticks me off when the childrens clothes get stolen in school. It would not be the first time. Last year my sons winter jacket got stolen and I got furious! How can a parent not notice if their kids come home with a “new” jacket or any kind of clothing labeled with another childs name and phonenumber? And if they do notice, why will they keep it and not bring it back? Any good answers to that?

My daughter and her friends got in the habit of borroing eachothers shoes and jackets after school and I quickly put an end to that since it is a conflict bound to happend. So did I notice her “new” shoes? Yes! Did we return them and got hers back? Heck yes… ok, getting sidetracked here…  I really like my new one. Lets hope I get to keep it.

Behold the mess… And yes… the tree is still up.

Never move dirty clothes. The last thing you want is to start of washing everything in your new house.

Embarrasing Mom Moments

If you have kids you just have to read the title to understand what I am talking about. One day your little angel will start talking and saying the sweetest things that makes your heart grow and overflow. (I rhymed. How cool am I?)

Suddenly that cute little thing will open its mouth and say something that makes you blackout. One of the following thoughts might cross your mind.

  1. Where did you hear that word? And then you realize it was from you… Good job.
  2. How do I get away of this situation?
  3. “That is not my kid.”
  4. If you deny whatever was said, it will make it worse… keep digging or say nothing.
  5. What if someone believes what he/she just said?
  6. All of the above.

I have been there so many times having 4 kids and 2 stepchildren (now adults), I should have gotten an olympic medal for surviving all of this.

So, to make you feel like a better parent I am giving you 5 embarrasing mom moments in this video. Enjoy and remember there is always someone worse than you 😉

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!
