BITS, PIECES AND AN UPDATE♥

First of all, thank you to all of you for the kindness and hugs that I have received the past week. It truly had me feeling so much better. I do have the best friends ever! ♥

I haven’t done that much the past week, most resting, staying in bed and reading. Poor Mum have been playing slave and run errands and done shopping and so.
Apart from her, Sarah is the only one that has cared – which again confirms that I am lucky having you guys here...
Sarah and I have texted a LOT! – Her summer vacation, started yesterday, and plans on staying here next week…so she did have a reason for me to get better…she send pictures and small videos of herself to cheer me up♥

The weekend and Monday was mostly rest and sleeping as I was running a fever. I mailed to my doctor to ask him about the penicillin, and it turned out her is sick, so one of the others answered. She wanted me at the consultation, but I had to say no as I couldn’t leave the apartment. She then wrote that I had to take the meds for two weeks, instead of 10 days, due to my lack of immune system.
So that is until next Friday.



Tuesday Mum was babysitting Rebecca and Benedicte in the evening. That was not the best of experiences for her. Being with the girls was fine though. Mum made a picnic in the living room and made sandwiches and juice for them to eat in front of the TV... then they went in the bathtub and Mum was reading H.C.Andersen fairytales when they soaked.
They were almost in bed when my Sis arrived and the s**t hit the fan…She freaked out that the girls wasn’t asleep, then she attacked Mum and Rebecca for eating in the living room saying; In their house you were sitting at the kitchen table together and only watched the news on the kitchen tv.
Mum called me when she came home, almost in tears…she had done her best to cheer the girls up, and then my Sis attacks her like that…..I felt so sorry for Mum for that.

What turned out to be my Sis problem is this;
Nick, the guy she cheated on her husband with and for whom she divorced said husband, had broken up with her….I don´t know the reason, but I have a few ideas^^
At the same time her ex-husband has gotten a new girlfriend – in Venezuela. So he came home from the ship for two months, spends two weeks with the girls and then went two weeks to Venezuela to be with his girlfriend…
He’ll be back this weekend and then he is taking the girls camping.
So in the game between my Sis and ex-BIL, my Sis is the looser here, and she can´t handle that, therefore taking it out on the girls and Mum…..
I want to kill her.

But a good thing happened too that day; my cousin had her baby….he is ½ Turkish so I´m sure he will be pretty when he grows up;)

Jannes baby
The baby 18 hours old

Wednesday I asked Mum over for coffee so we could talk a little, which was good for both of us I think.

Thursday I had to get out a little so Mum and I went grocery shopping and to the apothecary. Then I was beat when I got home.

Yesterday was payday, so I paid bills and tried to figure out if I can afford to have Sarah here next week;)

Today I went to Mum for coffee and a talk...it is nice to just talk, without it being at a time when she is slaving away for me;)

Other news;
I am getting a Kindle;) Not that I know how it works but I will work it out. A friend here knew someone that had a spare that she would send to me, so I can get books and read in bed, on the days where I am not feeling well.

I have friends here that have sent me eBooks, lend me their beloved paperbacks, and send me letters and postcards, emails and hugs…..

Just go to show that the best friends in the world is found online♥♥

The next is a link to an article that I really want you to read if you are up to it.

http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory-written-by-christine-miserandino/

It is the best explanation on how you live with a chronic decease and chronic pains. Things that I find difficult to explain to people, when they look at me and say; “But you don´t look ill at all, why are you on disability pension?”
Now I know how to explain it in the future….

Last thing is for my fellow “Hawaii-five-0” fans. It is a rec and I don´t do that much but I have to do it here:
My new friend haldoor_honey wrote a piece in 25 parts, it is called “Overthinking” and it is just so sweet and loving and sad and happy and everything.

http://haldoor-honey.livejournal.com/83923.html

So even if you are not a Danny/Steve slasher, read this and you will love that pairing forever;)

And just because I always post pictures;)

I hope you feel better soon!!!

Yay, summer vacation. For us it's one down, seven more to go ;). My Mom's coming tomorrow because all the careful planning we did got mixed up, so instead of the kid traveling to them she's coming here. Sarah sounds like a very caring young girl, I'm convinced she'll be taking good care of you when she's staying with you!

Ah, your Sis? What am I supposed to say to that? I can understand (a little) why she would be upset, but that's just not acceptable behavior. Not towards anybody, but towards your own mother? I believe I've already told you at some point before what I think of her...it just got confirmed. I'm sorry for your Mom that she'd to experience that.

Yay, a Kindle! You know you not only can read books on there, but also fanfic? I'm no pro, but even I managed to get stuff on it (with a lot of help from a friend :)).

The pic really is very beautiful!!

Love you!
*hugs*

I do feel better hon. The swelling has gone down and the pain is not so bad...the worst thing is that it itches, so I am going crazy;)

I hope you will have a nice vacation, when it is your turn...when I worked I always had my vacation in August, which is my favourite month. I have actually talked to Mum about visiting you one day^^
And Sarah will be taking so good care of me, no doubts there.

My Sis...well I do not have any words left...and I have no tolerance for her what so ever…the things she have done and said to me.and to Mum and Dad when he was alive…I cannot forgive her for anything.

I hope I get the handle on the Kindle, I am quite exited about it.

♥Love you too♥
(and I have a little something to send you)

Jeg er for sliten i hodet til å lese dette nå - bare skummet.... jeg bet meg merke i ordet Kindle :-) Jeg har kindle, og kan skrive en email til deg om det meste du trenger å vite for å bruke den. Jeg konverterer alle fics (j2) til kindleformat, så dette er jeg dreven på :-)

Spoon theory gjør det så mye lettere å forklare, ikke sant? Jeg printet den ut og tok den med til legen min, og han fortalte meg at han allerede hadde fått den av en annen pasient. :-) For de som kjenner til teorien, så er det så mye lettere å si *jeg har ikke nok skjeer nå...* og det er nok. Jeg trenger ikke å forklare hvorfor....

Thank you Susan..I do feel better, just the penicillin makes me tired, but I will cope.

Yes, Sarah is my ray of sunshine and she know how I am and feel right now, so she will look after me, and cheer me up.

Well Karma is a bitch right? she is getting what is coming to her.

Yay, I look forward to the Kindle, and hope I can work it out;)

Thank you Susan♥♥
Love you♥

I ask you to be better. I do not like to see you sick. :(

I am glad for you. Being all the time alone can sucks sometimes. Having someone around a lot better. :)

I never had a Kindle, enjoy it once it is home. ♥

I love my kindle - I missed being able to read, my arthritis made it virtually impossible to hold books for more than a few minutes.

I'll quite happily share any books (mobi format) I have )I have just over 1000 books) that you might like and any help you need using the kindle - it's really easy once you get the hang of it and a pure joy to be able to read books again. :) ♥

I want to slap our sister, really. Not acceptable!

But awwww, tiny baby! He looks very comfy! :-) So do the doggies. *pets*

Yay Kindle! I hope it makes it easier for you.

And ooh, that pic is pretty! *hugs*

*hugs gently* Hope you feel better soon, lovely!

Ooh, a Kindle! I'm sure you will work it easily - I got my mum one for Christmas, and she has found it very straightforward, and she it absolutely terrible with technology so I'm sure you'll manage fine! I also have an ereader, not a Kindle, but I don't know how I ever survived without one!

Awwww, the baby looks so sweet! And Nanna & Balder are so cute, it makes me want a pug every time I see them!

Edited to add: Thank you for the link to that article - it was a brilliant read, I will always remember that description.

My Kastanje Honey!
I'm sorry you're still feeling poorly but I'm so very proud of you for always being able to find courage and strengh to go on.
I'm glad you have your mum and Sarah who are taking good care of you.
I've read the Spoons Theory and I think the girl was right. It makes people understand how bad and difficult it is to do the easiest and normal-iest things that are for others. Because nobody thinks that much about getting up, dressing or washing... But when you hurt it is the most difficult part, that, and pretending that everything is ok so everybody won't look at you... I do understand, believe me.
I'm really sorry about what your "devil-sister" did to your mum she should be happy to have someone taking care of the girls. Poor children.
Don't forget to kiss your mum and Sarah for me, as well as Balder and Nanna!♥
LOVE YOU
