It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's the last day of September and I got out of work early today. Tomorrow I have to order my snow tires because it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas out there. This is how it looked like when I came home today.It keeps coming down so I just made a fire.Have to call Max and see if we can have some wine when he gets home. Even though it's a school night :)

Isn't it ironic?

Guess who got the flu after being vaccinated against it for the first time in his life? Or could it be the swine flu? I bet it is the swine flu!I am hanging out with the dogs, baking Swedish cinnamon buns, and watching "Barnen i Bullerbyn". Wishing I could have my fam over for a "Fika"...Speaking about "Barnen i Bullerbyn", here is my favorite clip from it.

Rough times!

September 2009 is not going to go to the history as one of the better months in my life. Yesterday was yet another fall back. Also this one a financial one. The company that I work for will no longer let anyone work more than 40 hours a week. For me that means a pay cut of more than $850 a month. That hurts! I felt so sorry for myself and broke down in tears of frustration in front of my dear boss. It didn't do any good. Just gotta suck it up! Hope for better times...

I'm back!

I have taken a long pause from blogging due to all kinds of stress that has been in my life the last couple of weeks. Worrying about my precious baby boy has been the hardest and most stressful. However, I am glad to announce that he is now almost fully recovered.

The same day as surgery was going to take place they found out that all the pain and limping was simply a result of an infection. Now we are waiting to find out what kind of infection it is and he is on antibiotics. But the limping is almost gone and today he went on his first hike in a long time. It is such a relief! Nevertheless it cost $1.500 to find out it was only an infection.

Work has been busy and a little stressful and so was the breakdown of my laptop and car. I had to get a new hard drive for my computer and a new thermostat for my car.

I've simply had tons of expenses recently and it doesn't seem like they are going to end anytime soon. But shit happens and everything costs money. It just sucks when everything happens at once :)

Today we took a well deserved break from all of that and went for a nice fall hike in the morning. Then we had lunch at an Indian restaurant and went to see Julie & Julia. What a good movie! Tomorrow a new week starts. Hopefully it is going to be a less stressful one...

After rain comes sunshine (or more rain)

Yesterday was the day my hard drive blew up and the day we found out that Rimini needs surgery, possibly on two legs. With other words - a really shitty day!
