I have to thank my husband for talking me into watching the show with him. He has a thing for easy-to-watch funny shows, whereas I prefer shows with more of a story and deeper meaning. After watching a couple of episodes I had decided that the humor of The Office was not my cup of tea. Thank goodness that Marcus was so persistent and managed to persuade me to sit through the first two seasons. I must say, it wasn’t easy. And definitely not funny. But after I reached that mark I was sold. And now I love it! (more…)
Let me just start by deciding that life is good. Can we agree on that? That the fact that we are alive is something to be embraced and to be grateful for. That no matter if it has its hard periods and can be pretty unpredictable, that it is still a priviledge simply to have a chance at a life in this world.
This morning I came across a post on a Danish ‘second hand’ ‘buy and sell’ type of Facebook page. The girl posting was attempting to sell a small coffee table that she had bought the same morning at a big sale – the kind where people stood in line waiting for the doors to open. The girl had been there when the store opened. In the craziness of determined shoppers she bought this table without being completely positive that it would match and fit in her apartment. When she returned home and unpacked the table, to her dismay, the table wasn’t a good fit for her living room. (more…)
If you ask me (and I suspect I got this from my mother) if you put ‘party’ behind any task, it becomes FUN! That means a ‘moving party’ will involve loud music, snacks, dancing and laughing! Despite my many attempts to brainwash Marcus with my theory, moving this weekend was not exactly a party. (more…)
How on earth we could have gone all of about 6 weeks without going to the beach properly, I do not know. And by properly I mean actually wearing swim suits and getting in the water or at least lying down and enjoying the sun. So I am not counting our “beach walks to the store” or the couple of times I’ve sneaked a run down to the sand on my way home from campus. (more…)
You know those periods when you feel like you aren’t accomplishing anything? When you feel like you’ve gone to bed at least 100 nights in a row thinking “I didn’t get anything done today”. Or at least so many nights that one night you think “I didn’t get anything done this MONTH!”. That’s when you know it’s bad. And in my case that’s sadly when I finally decide to get up and do something about it.
So today I’m gonna accomplish something.
I’m gonna empty my very very full laundry basket. All the way. To the pink bottom. (more…)
Because today is December 1st we could, with clear conscience, watch our first Christmas movie of the year. I had of course prepared a Pinterest board for this particular occasion. And off we went, scrolling up and down to decide which to watch first. Somewhere during this discussion Marcus popped the question of which was my favorite Christmas movie. I felt a thrill of excitement to plunge into this conversation, but I actually didn’t know where to start. (more…)
