This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
Today was like an emotianl rollercoaster. The day began horribly when I woke up after way too few hours of sleep. Everything went very smoothyl though and I really enjoyed my work out. Tuesdays are the best because I know how to do those exercises and it feels right and hurt in the right places. Tuesday means chest and triceps. I love the back exercises to, but I don’t get the same feeling so I think I’m doing something wrong, or maybe it’s just that I’m much stronger in the back than in my chest. After one and a half week I already recognize some faces at the gym.
When I picked up the girl from school (she ends 15min earlier than the boy) my rollercoaster went downwards (that’s the most fun part of the rollercoaster, so I’m not sure if I understand that metaphor… anyway). She compared me to the old au pair and it was pretty clear that she prefered her. I got pretty sad but got myself together and acted nice as nothing happened. I know that the kids just lost their big sister and a new girl just moved into their home, taking her place. They need some time. And in a year they will probably think the same about me and the new au pair :).
The girl had her dance practise after school and after that she was like transformed. She had like endless of energy and couldn’t stop talking or moving/dancing. She got super excited and curious when I started talking about my cousins. And she really wants to meet Malin so she can teach her gymnastics.
After that she tried to teach me how to dance, but she just laughed at me. Then we had a pillow fight and the boy soon joined us. For the first time I really felt like their big sister and it was an amazing feeling.
Other things that happened today was that I got a package from UPS (it’s so weird that everything you order online is being delivered to your door and left there, even though you are home and it’s valuable, instead of at a post office where you pick it up). I have tried everything for acne except for Proactiv. If this doesn’t work I just have to live with it I guess. But I am crossing my fingers!
