Well, I’ve had a week and a half of my summer holiday now. And time flies by too fast, I really don’t want this to end at all. 
It’s not like we’ve had excellent weather (it’s sunny but chilly and it really need to rain because the lawn is more yellow than green). 

I just really like being at home. I like getting to chose if I’m seeing anyone today, or if I’m not leaving the house. 

Besides, most of my friends are online (as in living in another country and not really someone you’d pop by to in an afternoon), or they live a 4h drive away, at least. 

I’m trying to figure out where all my childhood friends have gone to. And I realise I didn’t have that many close friends to begin with, three maybe? And they live ways away or I’ve completely lost touch with them. 

I’ve tried to reach out to the one living close by, but she’s so busy with her life that it’s almost impossible for us to find time. I guess she isn’t as interested in rekindling our friendship as I am. 

Ugh. I’ll just give up and cultivate whatever friendships I’ve made online. 


Hubs got me Mass Effect Andromeda a couple weeks back. It’s a very pretty game and so far I’m curious to see what the main story is about. What I have realised though, is that I’m absolutely terrible at FPS games. And I mean ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE

I can’t hit anything even if I threw the gun at them. But fuck that, I’m playing the game anyway and so far the only thing making me rage quit is a Remnant Architect. Mudderhumping three legged piece of robot shit! 

And I’m playing on Easy, so really, I shouldn’t have too much trouble. Why do I even play? Ugh. 

After lunch we’re off on a play date with the girls bffs, and I’ve made friends with the mum so I’ll be sat there drinking tea. 

Anyways, it’s breakfast time here and the horde needs feeding (if I can tear them away from YouTube and tv and other stuff that is). 

Take care, wear sunscreen, drink loads (of tea).

I’ve worked 12 days in a row, not all of them full days, but I’ve been doing work stuffs every day (an hour here and a couple hours there, constantly thinking about work and feeling I’ve forgotten something). 

Adding the lack of sleep I’ve experienced and you have me so tired nothing is funny. 

There’s a stage when everything is funny, but I don’t know if I’m passed that or if that will come if I stay up long tonight. 

Ugh. Tiredness is the worst. 

I suppose me being tired isn’t helping this constant feeling of having missed something, feeling stressed and frankly I don’t know what to do about it all. 

Thankfully I have this weekend off (so that’s two whole days with nothing planned. Yay.). 

Tonight I was informed there’s a football game on in a few hours, so I guess the TV’s mine until then… 

Mass Effect 3 or Dragon Age Inquisition? 

Anyway, I need tea. A large cuppa tea. 

xoxo 

I don’t know when I wore anything but jeans (must have been the midsummer weekend). 
The weather’s been so unreliable, sunny one moment and bucketing the next. I’ll be heading out with laundry only to have to turn back inside, because rain… 

Ugh. It’s not helping my mood either (tho that could be pms or something), and even though I know you can takes walks in the rain I don’t feel like walking in the deluge that has been the rain the last week or so. 

One a more positive note: I’ve found a guy who posts videos of himself playing the Mass Effect games for the first time. He’s gone through ME1 and is now on ME2. 

This makes me remember how much I love the game and I’m considering leaving DAI for a while to finish my most resent play through of ME2. I abandoned that to start DAI. 

Anyhow, it’s nearing lunchtime and I’m feeling the hangry coming on. Better feed myself then, before I say or do something I regret.

tuchankaFrost is still covering the ground. It’s half past noon on December 1st. I can only hope the cold stays and that we’re blessed with snow soon enough. November was dark. So dark and rainy and gloomy. December has to be so much better in the weather department (or I’ll go on strike!).

Pumpkin turned 3 yesterday. She was hyper all day and a few hours before bedtime she crashed and everything was WRONG! This morning she was her old cheerful self again, she got to wear a dress and it was cold enough for the overall (which she wanted to put on right after breakfast, before brushing her teeth).

Tomorrow I’m going to Uppsala (work thing) and I have to get up at 5.30 to make it… I’m not fond of getting up at “OMG it’s too bleedin’ early o-clock”. But on the plus side of things: hotel breakfast! Yummo! 

Anyhow, I have a galaxy to save (or rather, I’m beating up and shooting things on Tuchanka).

xoxo

I can’t wear glasses or contacts right now, because the left side of my face (and my eye) is swollen and achy (well, it’s only been two days).

Blind as a fucking bat.

I wonder when swollen is too swollen and “need of medical attention” swollen…
Thing is at the moment I can’t get myself anywhere since hubs is away working. I could call my mother in law though, but let’s hope it won’t come to me having to go show my face to a doctor. The stitches come out on Tuesday morning.

The horde is at home today, the twins have caught the wee one’s chicken pox and I kept Pumpkin home from preschool today (so I wouldn’t have to leave the house, very Phantom of the Opera of me).

Anyhow, we’re supposed to be straightening the house today, and bake muffins. I heard a rumour we’re to bake three different kinds! Oooh!

So the doc cut me. My left cheek is covered in surgical tape and I think it’s a rather big cut.

Right now I’m on the sofa, playing Mass Effect and trying not to think of how much it hurts. I can’t eat or drink at the moment, the wound starts bleeding and it just hurts too much.

Maybe this will be a good thing? I’ll not eat for a few days and get rid of all these “stuff my face because it’s delish” feelings…

I don’t know.

Anyhow, I’m actually quite sad, but crying is out of the question since that makes the wound bleed too (or the tears somehow do).
I’ll be on my sofa if you need me.

Right.
I have a terrible cold and as usual I’ve lost my voice. My head’s all clogged up, my nose is all runny and head and throat hurt.

Today was spent on the sofa, watching cartoons or playing Mass Effect 1. I wish I was playing now, but hubs got home from a weekend of work things and wanted to watch football…
What can I say, I’m a nice person (though I do think he should let me play anyway, I’M SICK GORRAMIT!).

Anyhow, I won’t be dancing tomorrow which SUCKS. I’ll probably just lie on the sofa, blowing my nose and communicating by raspy sounds and (rude?) hand gestures. Fun times.

xoxo

p.s. My weapon of choice is hub’s amplifier… don’t think he’ll like that. d.s.

keep-calm-and-call-commander-shepard-1I had thought to blog three times a week, to get some sort of continuity here.
Ah well, new plan next week.

Work’s trudging along just fine, though I have been home with Pumpkin two days this week (she has a nasty cold, poor thing).
Now we just have to hope that none of us catch it. I for one don’t have time to be ill and I really don’t have to tell you how much being ill sucks.

When it comes to writing I have managed bits and pieces during the week. Looking at older fragments and feeling I want to add/change/finish them. I have a few stories I started last autumn, mostly for the Borderlands Anthology and they have gotten a life of their own. Nice!

Tonight though I’m hoping to play through Mass Effect 3. Shepard is now back on Earth, ready to kick some Reaper butt (yes, I’m talking to you – humongous villainous synthetic-organic sentient beings!)

My workout thing that I’m doing is going alright. I’ve missed some days due to very long workdays or migraines. But the thing with this is that i can easily do two of them in one day, micro-workout.
Today for instance I have two sets that have to be done, this because I wasn’t home until 10 PM and way too tired. It’ll be interesting to see how I do today (I’ve had 3,5h sleep due to Pumpkin not sleeping at all well).

Anyhow, it’s getting late enough for me to tell the horde to go get themselves ready for bed. Me, I’ll have a cuppa tea and pass out work out.

xoxo

IMG_20130410_131224Okiday, tomorrow is half a day at uni (it’s really a full day, but I’m skiving after lunch). We have to bring a test, answer questions and tell our group members all about it. Fun times, fun times indeed! 

It’s up at 5.20 (seriously, that’s soooo messed up!!!) and non-stop from 9-12.30, I have to get on a train at 12.55 to be in time for work in the afternoon… and I end the day with the youth groups’ Christmas party (which will be awesome, but then not, since I’ve been up since 5-ish a-clock).

I’m giving myself another 30 min before I have to head to bed, don’t know what I’ll get up to… Twitter is always fun, I’ve met so many awesome people there, and on Google+, but I think I enjoy Twitter more.

Anyhow, I’ve drunk my tea, I’ve done the task for tomorrow and I’ve removed my makeup. Think I’ll read in bed. Sarah Dessen’s “Just Listen” (OMG IT’S SO FREAKING AWESOME!!!).

xoxo

Hubby and I are going to Stockholm tomorrow, no kids. We’re going shopping and then in the evening we’re invited to a party at some friends. It’s the first time we’re away from little Pumpkin over the night, the twins have been sleeping over at their grans several times already. I’m not in the least worried, they’ll all have a lovely time and me and the hubby get some quality time together as well.

I tweeted about my concerns about what to wear tomorrow night and GOT THE BEST ANSWER, EVER!

Sadly, I can’t make it happen… I’m wearing a pale yellow 50’s inspired dress and as far as I know it’s not a part of Femshep’s wardrobe (now I have to play the game and check though… the hardship!).

Anyhow, I’m writing away on my YA again. Things are coming together and I feel very happy and content. I always (almost every year) tell myself to finish it before New Year… we’ll see. To start again is at least a beginning.
