awake all night

my clogs

A few years ago I loved being awake at night. I didn’t mind at all. Now it’s different, I want to sleep now – or at least know that I can sleep longer in the morning when I’m a bit late in bed.

I planned to sleep longer today. But at 7 am MT jumped into my bed ready for the day to begin, he’s been doing this for a week or so, the sun and light wakes him up early now that spring is closing in on us. He wasn’t allowed to get up, I  told him that our day did not start until 8 am. He wasn’t happy and I didn’t sleep much more –  and then we had move on and leave for preschool and work.

Now I’m sitting here, so tired, thinking about how I’m going to survive the night staying awake with the youths. We’re having a night happening for the confirmants from our church and a few other churches in the area. I think we are going to be about 200 youths. Awake. All night. Oh, my, I just feel how tired I’m going to be….. But off course, it is going to be seriously fun as well and my parents are looking after MT so I can get some sleep when I’m back home tomorrow morning. I look forward to that ;)

I’m bringing my trusty clogs with me, so I can walk (almost) all night…. Come to think of it, I bought them a year ago for this same kind of event. I call them friends – they saves my back!!

I guess I’m just getting old. Give me some sympathy will you??!! LOL.

waiting for spring

We got snow today. I thought the spring was here. I guess it is in the coming, though. We’ve had a lot of melting lately and our drive way is icy and slippery (now covered with a layer of snow = dangerous). So I walk carefully.

This so you know I’m alive. Now I must sleep, tomorrow starts with an early morning and those are not my favorites… I have big hopes that the day will be good, even with an early morning. Nice :D

a green day

Project 365 - Lime MT; March 25.2007

I’m not Irish and neither do I celebrate St. Patrick’s day that much. But I love the blessings and the green. So I’ve been walking around all day with my green sweater (and MT had green clothes too, but the photo above is an old one), I guess nobody around me noticed though since we don’t celebrate this day here, but I had some fun :D Now I’ve been looking around a little in the cyberspace and found a few blessings and sayings I’d want to share with you before I call it the night.

Go mbeannai Dia duit
(May God Bless You)

You’ve blessed me with friends and laughter and fun
With rain that’s as soft as the light from the sun-
You’ve blessed me with the stars to brighten each night
You’ve give me help to know wrong from right
You’ve give me so much please, Lord give me too
A heart that is always grateful to you.

May your neighbors respect you,
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you.

May those who love us, love us
And those who don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts
And if he can’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping!

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.

May the roads rise to meet you.
May the wind be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

The last one is my long time favorite. Hope you had/are having a good day!!

my energy is back

yellow cup

It feels so good being back in the world of the non-sick again ;) I though I should remain in this low-energy sick-feeling state for a long time; because it felt like I never quite got better. But then I suddenly did. Today. Hurray! I’m still coughing and I still have the odd headache. But it’s better and I feel the energy is coming back to me. I can do stuff now (if not all on that terribly long to-do list…) and walk faster. Good. But now I have to sleep a little. Hopefully this will last, tomorrow is another busy day. Night!

skiing and a headache

MT skiing contest

MT and friend skiing contest b/w MT got invited to his friend for a little costume skiing contest this afternoon, just for him and a few friends. MT was super happy to be invited and with a little bit of help he got his ninja costume on top of his thick winter clothes – the suit is not easy to see from these photos, since the decoration is on the front, but anyhow ;)

He had lots of fun skiing and playing with friends, he got served hot dogs and later they got chocolate cake. How nice to be invited to such a thing.

I went back home to try to relax a bit. This day started with a huge headache that lasted most of the day and a hour or so before I drove MT to his friend I throw up the little food I had eaten. Not a fun day. I’m so tired of this kind of headache, but as usual it got better in the evening and I got to eat some and keep it down too. Nice. One of the other mothers brought MT back home. Another nice. We spent some time talking and watching cartoons, I made us some hot chocolate before it was time for bed.

Now I’ll better go to bed my self. I have a big day tomorrow with lots of tasks and it feels a little intimidating after a week on sick leave….

Wishing you a blessed week!

mail man and some yellow

the mail man

Today MT went down to the mail box to fetch our mail. All by himself. It’s about 350 meters. And he can’t see the house the last 50 meters or so. He’s been refusing to do this for so long. So we’re both really proud that he actually made it :D It didn’t hurt that he was a bit curious about the girls visiting at our neighbors, though. But by the time he got down there they had gone back inside so he didn’t meet them, maybe tomorrow?? At least he got the mail! 

Anyhow, I’m back here blogging. Yay!! Life got busy and I got no time to blog late February, and then we went on vacation and I had so much fun that I forgot to blog (even thought I had lot’s to share – isn’t that too typical of me, sorry). I had so good plans for sharing some stories and photos from the vacation, but I got sick. Nasty cold got to me on Sunday and I haven’t done much since. Thankfully I’m feeling better now and plan to be back at work on Monday. I hate being sick.

A little while ago I picked up an idea at M’s blog and have been snapping a little of the yellow in my life right now. Both I and MT long for spring and we got the taste for it visiting west Norway in our vacation, we got home to a winter land, though. The spring is still a month or two away here. So I’m collection yellow in March, hoping to feel a bit warmer and lighter……. here is my favorites so far, for more jump to my yellow set at flickr.
