On my mind


Nu är det mycket som snurrar i huvudet. Allt från djupa tankar till dom mest ytliga. Dom djupa är mest om Johan som inte mått bra sista tiden. Ska ta med han till en av hans läkare idag och fixa med en medicin som är slut. Dessa problem tar alltid mycket av min energi och jag flyr undan och koncentrerar mig på barnen och allt som måste fixas i huset.

I’ve a lot on my mind at the moment. From the deepest thoughts to the most efficient. The deeper ones are mostly about Johan, who hasn’t been feeling good lately again. I’m taking him to a doctor today to refill a medication. These problems are always taking lots of my energy, but I’m escaping and concentrating on the kids and everything that has to be done in the house.


Vi ska ju sälja detta Amerikanska hus och flytta till Sverige i sommar så ni förstår att det finns att göra. Så från som djupa tankarna till dom ytliga som tex  -Kommer denna sköna soffa passa in i nya huset? Måste fram med tumstocken och mäta helt enkelt. Vilka möbler och prylar ska med?
Vi ska måste också uppskatta hur många containrar vi behöver. Totalt omöjligt för mig att gissa, jag som inte ens kan packa en bil, haha!

We are selling our American house and are moving to Sweden in the summer, so you can probably understand there are things to do. So from the deepest thought to the efficient like – Does this sofa fit in the new house? I need to measure… And what furniture are we bringing?
We also need to know how many containers we need. That feels impossible for me, who can’t even pack up a car, haha!


Annan tanke – ska jag köpa ett nytt bord hit, eller onödigt nu?

Just nu är jag i kontoret och rensar och organiserar. Såååå tråkigt med papper alltså. Och vad måste sparas? Tur jag har Johans agent Paul att fråga hela tiden, det inte han vet är inte värt att veta.

Ja detta var lite som rör sig i huvudet nu. Puss på er.

Another thought – Should I buy a new coffee table for this area, or not necessary?

I’m at the moment cleaning and organizing the office. Sooooo boring with all paper and documents. And what do I need to save? I’m glad I’ve Johan’s agent that I can ask. The things he doesn’t know are not worth knowing.

Yep, that was a glimpse of what’s spinning in my head right now. Hugs to you all.

    I’ve always enjoyed your blog and watching johan play for the redwings. Wish you and your family all the best going back to Sweden

    I have often wondered if a support/service dog may be beneficial and help Johan. I know people with similar brain injuries that find a specially trained dog very helpful. Maybe once you are settled it may be worth investigating, the flying back and forth may make it challenging before you settle into your new life in Sweden. I know there are a number of very good training facilities in the US, not sure about Sweden.
    I truly hope you will continue to blog, (in English), when you move. I know, I for one look forward to updates on your family.

      Thank you!! I totally agree. The plan is to get a dog once we are back. Johan and Oliver are very excited about that!!
