It’s been long since last, I blame it on the holiday, and being sick.
I got sick on Christmas eve with fever and soar throat and tomorrow will be first day for me back at work since the 23rd. Just been a cold, with fever every day, nothing advanced but still boring.
Christmas was nice, it always is. We followed the same procerdure that we follow every year, it starts with lutefisk at my parents place around lunch time, donald duck’s christmas special at 3 pm and opening gifts and after driving Lev home me and the family went to my cousins house for the big get together and smörgåsbord.
I got wicked nice gifts and everything, but I always do
My sister gave me nail polish, nail art stickers, nail decoration lacquer, hello kitty socks, Toy Story 3 on Blu-Ray (Got the same from Lev the night before so I gotta return it ) Hello Kitty Lipgloss, eye pens.
My parents treated me to the traditional pajama, a kitchen chair (and they gave one to Lev), two cushions to the chairs and a new car battery.
Lev got Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory (old one) on Blu-Ray from my sister, Coca Cola glasses and a kitchen chair from my parents.
Might have forgotten some things but I gotta jump into the shower so no time for more blogging.
Life goes on
This year me and Lev had a mutual agreement on no Christmas gifts for each other. Both of us didn’t really feel like it, plus, we’ve been working a lot and it’s been a stressful couple of weeks leading up to Christmas this year.
As I always do, I bypassed the agreement a little, it’s not from me if I write Little Lev and the degus name on the gift instead of mine Plus, is was nothing big, just 2 xbox360 games so that he has something to play during his days of work (they all got paid vacation until the 3rd of January)
What I didn’t expect was when I came home yesterday from my parents to be greeted by Lev with a big grin on his face telling me that he got me something. I got very surprised and happy, it’s cute that he surprises me and I thought he had bought a small little gift, just because, you know. Yeah, really, he bought me a new monitor for my computer A 21,5 inch LED monitor with full hd support and all, yay!
I love my Lev <3
Life goes on
What a friggin week… Like seriously. The other day it started snowing a lot again and everything is just messed up right now.
Lev’s train is never on time, doesn’t matter if he’s going to work in the mornings or home in the evenings, the trains are constantly late. Today it’s been total chaos all day. On his way to work he was stuck on a train outside of Malmö and was over an hour late for work.
Getting home was chaotic as well, trains were 2 hours late, and Lev ended up getting himself to Lund at least where I picked him up with the car. If I wouldn’t have done that I dread guessing when he would be home considering that I just read in the news paper that no trains at all are departing or arriving in Malmö.
Driving around in the snow is another story, I’m getting a hang on it very well I think, haven’t even been close to any accidents at all, but I do prefer nice roads to drive on, of course.
Yesterday when I was leaving the office to go home my co-worker calls in and tells me that the car they’re in went of the road and they’re stuck in a ditch full of snow… We jump into my company car and head out to try and get them up, luckily two cop cars stopped and helped us with it so we did get the car back up on the road again. So yeah, chaotic.
Other than all that I don’t mind the snow, I know how to dress well so I’m never cold or wet. Ski pants and winter boots is the way to go Might look like a total nerd but I couldn’t care less, warm and dry is the way to go for me.
Life goes on
Yesterday was one of the most stressing days I’ve had in a loooong time, I was actually scared of crashing myself totally at one point but managed to pull through.
Started the day at 6 am with a sandwich and extreme nausea. After that I went to work and work really hard so that I would be able to get off earlier and deal with all the things I needed done.
I was back home around 1:30 pm and had about 30 mins to switch clothes and freshen up before I had to head out again, this time to go look at an apartment in Malmö. Apartment was ok, but move in date didn’t suit us as well as I didn’t feel 100% about it, and I don’t wanna move unless I really feel for the new place.
After that I stressed home and had two hours to get ready for the party. Two hours might sound a lot but doing your nails takes a while unless you settle for sloppy work, and I don’t. Anyways, I got done in time, just had to stress a little
First Christmas party at Ubisoft Massive for both of us this year, hoping to be able to attend some more as Lev love his job and can see himself working there for a long time.
The party was fun, even tho I’m not a social person and can not engage in small talk very well at all, something that might not be that positive when attending a party with 200 guests and only knowing one person there Haha.
But yeah, it went fine and it was fun. Around midnight we gave up, I was wicked tired after my long and stressful day and Lev was “acceptably wasted” as he put it, haha.
Life goes on
Today I’m tired and nervous.
Tired cause I slept wicked bad last night and nervous cause on Friday we’re going to see an apartment and then attending a Christmas party at Lev’s job.
I have high hopes for the apartment, it seems to have good standard and it’s in a good area. I hope that we like it, and if we do, that the company likes us enough to rent it out to us. Stuff like that always makes me nervous, I want it to be good cause we looked for apartments for 4 months now and we could use a breakthrough.
And then the party, I don’t know anyone there. I met Lev’s team leader once, very briefly, and that’s all. Add to that I’m actually not a social person, I usually don’t party and I’m horrible at small talk. Haha, I told Lev that I would go if he promised to not get too drunk and that he would take care of me there so I’m not all alone.
Plus, I can’t decide on what to wear and what color to paint my nails with.
Life goes on
December 1st today and it makes me feel a bit better. I’m not sure why, but I think it could be that we’re getting closer to spring and that I might secretly look forward to the holidays.
We got snow still, and it’s cold. The roads goes from bad to really bad when it comes to driving, the ones in the open fields seems to be the worst as the snow continues to blow back in. But it’s ok, I got warm clothes, good shoes and my “better-late-than-dead” attitude.
My body is complaining more than ever tho, but since there’s nothing to about that really I decided just to stick with it, I know it gets better when it gets warmer. Curse these joints.
Christmas is closing in on me extremely fast and I’m trying to plan, it’s gonna be wicked busy weeks at work and then there’s all those other things that I want done. Like having a clean home, gifts for my loved ones, cooking and baking as well with a thousand other things in between that. I’m sure it’s gonna work out just ok, it always do even tho I dream about forgetting to buy gifts for everyone in time, every year.
There was something else I was gonna write down but I’m sleepy. And when I’m sleepy I’m brain dead.
So, good night. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.
Life goes on
