The days pass way too quickly, and today I didn’t even have time for lunch

So I was kind of starving as I went to pick up the girls. So we decided to make dinner hassle free. So pizza it is. I guess Lilly and Leah were hungry too. They ate a pizza each…so I am glad I bought three individual pizzas (even though I had planned to stuff one of them in the freezer). 

One of my students got a good blow to his mouth yesterday at school. So the person who hit him got expelled (by me) for the rest of the day. He was allowed back today though and we had a meeting with him and his parents. Tomorrow the two students have a meeting in my office where he has to apologize (even though my student initiated it by spraying “RedBull” on him). But violence is NOT ok regardless of reason. 

So many teachers are sick these days, and since I refuse to let my students skip classes I have taken on a lot of extra hours. So I am kind of feeling low on energy, and I am already looking forward to our upcoming “autumn holiday” or “potato holiday” as they used to call it (since it was a week off for students because they were to help harvest the potatoes). Just one more week to go…and I can hardly wait to finally have some quality time with the girls. We have not planned anything, but we might end up driving to Oslo to visit my auntie and my cousins. But nothing is set in stone just yet. We might just take this week all to ourselves. I have quite a lot of fabric that I am desperate to start sewing something off as well, but I will probably just take things easy and just decide when the holiday is approaching.

funny 2 year old shouting at her mummy for laughing while she was singin…

I have to say that I laughed while watching this…on the other hand where does she get the scare tactics from. The threats and intimidation she uses to get her mum to “shut up” laughing…if not from her very own parents. So even if it is hilarious, it is also a bit sad.

The weekends just vanished…again.

Why if life so busy? The weeks fly by, and the weekends are not by far long enough. 

I hardly ever get any “one on one” time with the girls, and it is starting to upset me. I have to plan a quiet weekend for us soon as I am desperate for some “us” time.

Friday the girls were invited to a birthday party with a girl from their new daycare (Guro). She turned 5 years old, and the girls were so excited so I couldn’t possibly decline the invitation. 

Saturday we went down town for an event (open house) at the fire department. The girls had a blast, and both of them got to extinguish a fire by using the fireman’s big hose. Even if Lilly got her finger “squashed”, she kept going and was so proud of herself. After a few hours there, we went to Wenddy and Mathias’ house for a playdate and dinner. As usual; it got really late until we were able to “break free” and get back home. 

Today we went to the “gym” (for kids) to get some exercise. The girls absolutely love to go there. Both of the used the rollerblades for the very first time. It was quite entertaining to watch. I had to promise to take them next Sunday as well. 

After that we drove to my mum’s house. I have not yet bought a washing machine, so I had piles and piles of washing to do. The girls played outside for quite some time as it was pretty sunny today, and we took my mum out for dinner. She returned from Spain yesterday, and had no food to prepare dinner for the three of us. We got home just in time for a quick shower before bedtime. 

So that pretty much sums up our weekend. So hardly any time at all to mope around and just be silly. I miss that!

My sister gave birth today…

…I became an auntie and the girls got a new cousin. Lib was born 3200 grams and 52 cm.

I just wish I could pop over to the hospital and snuggle her. But Houston isn’t just around the corner.

My dad and step-mum are flying over for three weeks coming weekend, and I have to say that I am a tad bit jealous. But for now I just have to settle for pictures!

But I am so excited!
I guess I have to come up with some baby sewing ideas for a little girl.

Lilly doesn’t look to happy to be disturbed by me taking a photo. But they attended their first birthday party in their new daycare today. Lilly is quite taken by this little girl, Guro. Guro celebrated her 5th birthday today. 19 kids and quite a few grown ups. They all had heaps of fun and were not too keen on departing.
