I been waiting for taking this photo since feb, the photo of the board at the schools pool with records for the school and my DDs name up on it. She broke the record at the seasons last competion, so I had to wait and i was so happy over that when we got back on a visit she had a competion at her own school and I could finaly take this photo.

The school logo are this cute lion family and WIdenere Pride is what now days decorate the sports tshirts and yes I am a proud mom,, my wounderfull DD i often call her just that my pride.
There is not word for all the Pride i feel to have a DD like her,

Its not that she is a execlletnt swimmer or have thre majors or is getting published, (works at school and so on could make thsi list long) she is just truely a very wounderfull person and I think that is what I am most proud over.

That her schools colors are the same as the Swedish flag dont hurt at all hehe…

we had some great days back in USA and a big huge enormous thak you to all DDs room mates whom put up with having me and the girls there for such a long time….
Your my pride and joy and i miss you soooooooo much

rain, rain and more rain keept me from seeing Obama

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:03 am

We all went up early this morning, well elin earliest as she was voulenteering she had to get up at 0500. we where standing in line in the wind and rain for one and a half hour before i gave up we didnt bring shooes for this weather and i had not feelt my feet for the past half hour i was constantly thinking what am i doing i am not even allowed to vote. this may very well be something i regrett my entire life but i just could not do it and i am not entirely happy that i have my two youngest out there defenitly not dressed fo the terrible weather i have a cold as it is and i am sure we all are gonna have one by the end off this day. my girls are so brave so intressted and so devoted i love that and i whised i could have sat a good example but i just couldnt do it. with all he is saying i do hope he wins for all the moms like me whom are single, i mean lets face it why did i move back home, well one huge part was i didnt feel safe, i didnt feel as if my kids would allways get the basic care no matter what my income was, and that is not a nice feeling i can tell you that.

I am so worried abou the girls right now since i stoped shivering i have no idea how cold they are and how they are doing in the huge crowed i just hope it will be a memorie worth it.

non of us may ever be allowed to vote how do i know or we just might one day but yet we do feel thsi is importend we lived here for such a long time and have some sort of roots here that we just do care a whole lot. elin will never be able to go all teh way politically as she was born in sweden yet she is devoted she did internship whit a senator she reads american goverment as one of her three majors, what can i say more then i am proud over her hard work and effort thought she may not have all the roads open for her i think it shows of a great and genuine heart.

i my self hope to be able to see the speach on tv not as exciting but at least not as cold…………

i hope for dry nice colorfull fall days….

I am christams shopping how crazy early isnt that but i am sure i will be happy for it as my life back home is rather stressfull with the house and school.

Right now lil kajsa is in my bed she has grown so big and become a real beauty we are hoping to be able to bring her home with use.. today we went to dorney park i hope i can add a photo or two later on i am way to tired right now.

the park had people dressed up after six a clock and teh girls realy goot sceard some even a bit to much. the tripstarted with tha one girl threw up only five minutes into the trip so we turned around and got a new set off clothes after resting a little as she thought she only was car sick i took her with me.

well a hour after we arrived we had to call her parents poor girl was sick and needed to be tucked into bed. me and my freidn was stuck by a table with school work (didnt get much done but we looked as we where at least)

Bus and trains

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:02 am

We have now been in Sweden for a while, and i havent written anything. werll to begin with my internet wasnt what I am used to it tooke me a while to figure out which company to go with.

Its been busy weeks first the girls had to get used to the public transportation, i thought honetsly it would take them longer then it acutally did. here the girls have to take a bus then a subway to get to school, its sad as the school in reality are pretty close but on the wrong subway line.
the girls learned amazingly fast both to use the travel planer on the computer and read the subway maps i havent gotten one single phone call saying mom i have no idea where i am and how to get home from here.

Frida can now go to dance in the city by her self and Lovisa manages to travel to her volleyball, and they also has been going to freinds by the public transportation this is a new kind of freedom for them.

they both have a extended school card which basically means they can travel whatever time during the day they want to just showing the little (expensive) card up.

We have also started the extensive renovation of our house, but that i have to write about in a other post.

have a great day

Good bye is never easy

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:50 am

There is many good byes to be said in our house this summer i did one yessterday that was extra hard. Little Ida whom was supposed to be my cat went to her new home how she became adopted i dont realy know.

She came to me with her mom (Daisy) and her brother Emil when she was only four weeks i took one look at her and said this is the kittens I got beacuse i lost Delwyn.

They are amzingly cute russian blue maine coon mixes and looked like little teddy bears when we first got them

I did take her and her brother to the store for a few days while the kitten whom was there was in my home to recover from a cold i put a note up that she was mine but she got adopted anyway….

so yesterday i went to drop them off with a book with photos and notes from the time they been with us the baby blanket.

I miss her so bad allready and it hasnt been 24 hrs yet.. Its hard to say good bay and specaly to a kitten you keept kissing and telling she is mine.

we had a tuff time deciding on whom of these two we shoudl keep they are both so adoriable and often i was saying i wish i could just keep them all three, mom Daisy is the best cat i have in the house except she dont much care for my animals.

Emil is a bundle of joy his full of it you can allmost tell from this photo

we had a tuff time deciding on whom of these two we should keep they are both so adoriable and often i was saying i wish i coudl just keep them all three, mom Daisy is the best cat i have in the house except she dont much care for my animals.

Emil is a bundle of joy his full of it you can almost tell from his photo…

Frida my sweetie has never been able to play a sport she is way to bussy with her dancing, she has tried with “mom i really want to play soccer” but i allways said well you have to skip some dancing then and that has allways been out of the question.

T his summer she was not going to do any dance camps the theatre was enough and summer lessons starts at dance soon so no camp, so she had some free time and one day she called from our little town and said

“mom i found a la cross stick its realy cheap only $20 and usally theystart at $80 pleaseeeee can i buy it?”

Well she got the stick and a camp a week of la cross.
Her first day i looked at her and said mostly jokyingly,i dont want to hear nothing about any broken legs or twisted ankles, she smiled and went off.
ofcause she got a huge blister allready the first day at camp which she had to battle the whole week.

But she had fun,,,
However she didnt like when i came to take some photos of her so i didnt get many that was good..
she is such a cutie all legs and she got so tanned that week and i am sure she had loads of fun enough to keep on playing?? i dont know..

I lie a lot these days,
like in the store when i pay
what would they say if i burst into tears, and let out all my fears.
adding and i realy can not afford these food as i have no clue how i will pay the rent due soon.
would they politley say ohh i am so sorry have a nice day??
no i lie and say i am fine holding back the tears and fears.
and how are you i politelty ask as if i really wanted to hear
perhaps her or his day is just as shitty as mine or perhpas he or she just has a pain in some place i realy do not want to hear.
have a nice day it most times ends with and I think to my self no i dont have a nice, day nor will I. And i probably wont have one in a very long time either but i force a smile and whises them they same, hoping that at least they will.


Filed under: cards,days — admin @ 9:24 am

I think I need to do a lot off cards on this theme I have so many people aroudn me right now that i need
to tell how much they truly mean to me.
I am going through bad times so bad i can not really write about them as i am afraid of it coming back to nip me in the butt.
Its so bad i cant even tell all the people whom are close to me due to that i just do not have streanght enough.
But this card are for two very special ladies whom are helping me so much, not only with practical things like letting me have one of there cars

but also to listen to me when i feel extremly down and telling my i am good and it will all be good in the end.

I think its easy to forget to say to people around you how much they mean and am really bad on that my slef even thought i do think about it all the time.
Now at least one card is done what to attach it to i do not yet know but i hope it soon will go to whom i made it for.
Right now its extreamly hard for me to find inner peace enough as well as time to sit down and create even thought right now is probably when i need it as most.

How I Got That Part

Filed under: days,kids,summer camps — admin @ 8:53 am

Neighbors are importend and i am lucky to have great neighbors.
each year a family close by let thiere kids set up a play so far its been a musical every summer
last summer my girls was in it as we where home they did Charlie Brown.
This summer it was a play, how i got that part.

The girls has each year taken more and more responsibilite for teh production and they do not them self have any parts in the play.
This year the girls managed all by them self, well i guess mom did the baking for all the good snacks they got during reharslas.

The family has converted a garage into a theathre. and its realy nice I am so impressed and sometimes whising i was agian a kid as
thsi was something would not even dream of having as a kid.

Everything is very professional done the folders with the manuscripts, the set the casting you can really tell these young girls has a passion for theatrhre and also has expriance from numrous of shows in a school.

It is two sisters how are doing this, they are both very talanted, but again i can not say enough about the support they have from there parents, and i just happen to be lucky enough to have a girl in same grade as the two sisters.
My girls love this and thsi year the age span of the preformers was more spread it is so nice to see girls this age work toghter like this outside school and regrdless of grade.

They started before school ended so they would walk toghter from midle school to practsie kids in diffrent gardes whom probably normaly would rather not been seen speaking with some one that “young” ot from “group” by the end of the show each and every one was friends and teh good byes after teh casting party was leangthly at least for a tired mom.

This year Lovisa had a part even if she may been the oldest she was now not in a play only girls two years younger as was
teh case last summer. so in Charlie Brown she was doing set and ciostumes and played flute.

Yeah i guess i didnt say that but this kids can not only act most of them are talented with music or singing or dancing or all three or tow or whatever combo.

I wish i could post more photos to show what a great job they did and show how happy they all look but I dont want to post photos of children whoms parents i dont even know, and havent asked so it has to bee only photos of my girls. but dont tehy look as if they are having the best time ever.

I can honestly not find words for how impressed I am with these children and how lucky i consider my self for having this just a few streets away. thank you all amazing girls and parents for this lovely expriance.
