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.
When I was stuck at the parking lot in Encinitas yesterday I was really sad. It felt like everything was wrong. But that changed this morning. I called Orbitz because I hadn’t gotten any money back yet. There was a woman (I tried to remember her name, but after the call was done I had completely forgotten it) today and I tried to explain my problem, it took some time, the connection was really bad today. But I got her my message and she told me that Orbitz didn’t do anything wrong, she could only see one transaction. Excatly like the other guy. She told me she could call my bank (thank god they had 24 hours phone hours) and let me talk to them while she waited because I can’t call to Sweden from here. So she called all the way to Sweden, waited while I was talking in Swedish with the bankman from Nordea. He saw what I was talking about and within a minute he gave me my money back. I was so happy! And I can’t believe Orbitz would do that for me. It’s not much money, but she was so nice, and she went through all that. I think she heard how happy I was to have my money back and I guess that is why they are so nice and friendly here in America. People here care.
The service at Orbitz.com isn’t all, they are cheap too and I’ve never had any troubles with them. Love them!
That made my whole day, I was so happy I accidently ordered some clothes online from Angl and American Eagle Outfitters… When I was in LA with Sarah and Christin I saw a really cute top but they didn’t have it in my size. So I tried looking for it online but couldn’t find it. But today for some reason it was right there on their webpage. And since I don’t have any skirts or shorts to go with a top like that I ordered that too. The only thing missing from that outfit was a bandeau (the top is almost completely open in the back and is made of white chiffon, super pretty really) and the only place I could find a nice and reasonable priced one was at American Eagle. And they had free shipping, awesome! It’s too bad I won’t get them before I got to Vegas on Friday though… Guess I have to go back there then, hehe!
After my shopaholic spree I calmed down, read a little and then took a nap for about an hour. I couldn’t pick up the kids from school so I was off until 2:30pm. In the afternoon it was just me and the boy, the girl was at a friend’s house. We did some homework and when the girl got home I had to give her something to eat before her soccer practice. Then I waited for my hostmom to come home so we could go and get my car, they changed the battery and it is up and running again.
When I got home I made dinner, broccoli- and bacon pasta. But I forgot to put cheese in the sauce so it didn’t get as creamy as I am used to, but it was still very good.
Today was also the first day it really rained in a long long time. It’s been a little drizzle other days, but today it was pouring. And there was also a really big lightning and thunder right after. But that was the only one. Was a while ago I heard thunder so it was a bit scary…
Now I’m sitting here reading my old novellas. I used to write a lot when I was younger and I think I will start doing that again. I started on one last spring and I think it is time to finish it.
