They just handed out the medals - just waiting for the national anthem - "Du Gamla, Du Fria".

Sweden rocks!!! Yeh.

Sweden is rockin' and rollin' in the Olympics this year. It makes me very happy.

And tomorrow I'm watching the men's hockey final LIVE!!! Yes! I love life.

a real weekend

So this is what it is like to take the weekend completely off... (Ok - except for a quick feature review and filling my timecard for last week). It kicks ass!!!

I have gone through all the papers lying around in the kitchen, paid the bills, played the piano (a lot), visited an African American church in the neighborhood (black gospel rocks!!!), played Pictionary Junior and Apples to Apples, eaten good food (tack mamma!), slept in (two days in a row), read Runner's World in the reading room, taught Sophie how to lay down, gone to the grocery store, blogged (!!!), and, and, and...

Wow - I should do this more often.

Rebecka and Snowy

We've had a "good" amount of snow these past couple of weeks. This is quite exciting for me, since it feels like home and extremely exciting for Rebecka, since she hasn't seen "playable" snow for three years.

Here is the masterpiece we came up with after the last snowfall. :)

Btw, it's not good to have a slanted driveway on icy days. Yesterday, we got "iced in" because we couldn't get the cars out... It was great!

sledding time

We went sledding today!!! And whatever grumpiness I had left over from dealing with a three-friend-sleepover is all gone!

Sledding rocks. Snow is cool. And now I'm going to have some yummy leftovers.

It's Saturday and it's a long weekend. Life is good.

Keep smilin'...

Missing someone...

12 days... Man.

Todd is having scanning problems. Apparently the little portable scanner doesn't like very old and dusty documents. Everybody please pray that his new scanner works better than the $200 one that he brought with him...

Good Lord! Is there no quality assurance anywhere?

people moving about

My mom came from Sweden on Thursday. It's very happy.

Todd is leaving for Sweden on Sunday. It's very sad.

I guess in the end, it all evens out...
