Something old, Something new!

I just love my old books, that I bought for $20 at my renovation house, the day they had estate sale. Now when I staged the house I brought them back to the very same shelfs. The brass decor star/thing is new from Target. It’s always a good idea to mix new and old things!

Yesterday was so awesome and so much fun with a pool party. Today- office day. A big pile of paper that needed to get organized and bills to pay. Not so awesome and no fun at all!! But at least a great feeling when you are done :)

Now time for The Kardashian’s. Hubby thinks I should watch something more educational than that, hehe! Oh well, I think it’s very entertaining and I can just relax while watching that show, sometimes that’s what you need, right!

I found this World Globe at Target the other day.

My office.
Some days I wish you could push a bottom and just be somewhere else. Today I would love to be in Edmonton to celebrate Lucy 1 year old, who’s our great friends Emelie and Jonas daughter. Those guys, and Joakim and Lisa… man I miss you all so much!! We used to hang out ALL the time. It’s one of the good and bad things when you live this “hockey life”. You meet so many wonderful people, but then they have to move away…

I think my home made apple pie will cheer me up. Yep, pie it is and than I’ll take the kids outside and enjoy this sunny beautiful fall day.
We were up early this morning for Eddie-Bo’s hockey game. So much fun to watch him play, but after he scored a few goals, he got tripped and had a meltdown and left… Not ok!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You gotta love Target! Make the diaper shopping more fun when you find some goodies for your home.

 

Now over to my sad Sunday.

Today we invited a 23 year old guy and his parents to our home, that is struggling with concussion symptoms, depression and panic attacks, just like my husband. He used to play hockey and be an outgoing kid. It’s just sad how concussion can change your whole life and it’s also really hard for everybody else to understand what they are going thru.
I think it was a great meeting for all of us. It’s always good to meet people dealing with the same issues. It’s heartbreaking that he’s so young and I hope our words will help him at least a little and get him on the right way. We will keep in touch and Johan will take him golfing soon.

Another sad thing. My amazing friend Lisa and her family are moving back to Sweden on Thursday. Joakim will play hockey there next season and I don’t like it at all. I’ve totally pushed those feelings away for awhile, but today it hit me hard. I’m gonna miss them so much. At least we’ll get some quality time together, they will stay at our house their last four days.

Good night.
