It feels good to be back. I have been without my computer because a lot of things just didn´t work, and hasn´t done so for quite a while. It became more and more frustrating, and I thought I would have to perform a reinstallation. Turns out it was Norton that was blocking everything, even if I removed it quite some time ago. I had to install a program to remove some files that was left, and wasn´t removed when I removed Norton. I found out this through a magazine, if I hadn´t, I would probably have done a reinstallment. Instead, it was much easier than that. The answer was Norton Removal Tool. Now it works like a charm, and I can even update programs without blocking others.

Other than that, the snow has kept on coming. Which is great when one is a kid, or while being on a ski-trip. Not so great for a house owner who has to shovel snow two times every day to keep the driveway clear.

This is what it looks like at the moment. I do love snow. It makes everything feel more clean, the air fresher and mutes all noice. But to be honest, it´s enough now.

Stress, is the word that comes to mind when I think of these two weeks that has passed. After procrastinating for a long time, my to do-list had grown immensely, and it was time to actually do something about it, instead of just thinking about doing things. Along with deadlines came stress, sleep deprivation and migraines, but I finally shortened the list. There are a few things left, but the worst part is over, and soon I can relax.

I have been thinking about things to get for spring, because my wardrobe needs a dose of something new. I definitely want some dresses, other than that I just don´t know. Also, when the ground is covered with snow, and the cold is unbearable at times, spring is nothing more than a fantasy.It feels like it will never be warm again, and the grass will never be green again. Thankfully, that is not the case. The question is when, when will it happen? Sooner than later, I hope.

My little girl is getting big. Today was the first day of her acclimatization period at preschool. It was quite exhausting spending a full day with a bunch of small children, but it was fun as well. Four more days of that, and the she is on her own. I am sure she will have a great time, but as a first-time parent I can´t help but being a bit overprotective. I know she is in good hands though. So, from next week, I will have more time for myself and time to do everything that I have been postponing. Exciting times lie ahead!

Jingle bells

There has been a lack of updates on my blog lately, but I will try to change that. Too much other things occupying my time, with not much time left for other things.

With that said, I just wanted to wish everyone a merry christmas. I hope the holidays will be filled with joy and festivities 🙂

Sick & Tired

I have been sick now for a week. Being tired and unable to focus on anything has been exhausting. Yet it has been really hard to fall asleep. When I thought the worst part was over, and that I finally was getting better, my throat starts to hurt really bad and I can barely breathe through my nose. This is getting a bit tedious.

I just heard this song for the first time, earlier today. It was one of those moments, when everything feels good for a few minutes. I was filling up the fire place with some wood, my daughter was standing next me, dancing. The weather was lovely outside, and this song came on. It was perfect.

Unfortunately the video isn´t available on YouTube, and I could not figure out how to embed from Vimeo or other sites, so here is a link instead: http://www.vimeo.com/6605514

I was feeling better, but something today triggered something in me. Now I feel sad, envious, out of control – hopeless. I tried to share some of my feelings to someone I trust, but the response I got suggested that I implied something other than what I said. That makes me feel worse – misunderstood.
