It's New Years Eve and I'm here at home. I was supposed to go to Esbjerg with Tine but I am still feeling like shit so I decided it was best I stayed home. Which was probably the best decision because I'm curled up on my couch with my blankets and my computer. Not all that interesting whatsoever.

I hope everyone has a great New Years Eve, whatever you all are doing.

I'm going back to bed....

I hope everyone had and will have (to those people who celebrate a funny christmas on the 25th "over there" :P) a very Merry Christmas!

I'm at home for the next few minutes before I take off to Jonna and Brian's place. I spent Christmas Eve with Karin and Ernst at Pernille & co.'s place and had a good time. I came out to Nørup a few hours early so I could hang out a bit with Karin while Ernst did his own thing around the house - lots of gossip and bitching - a serious girltalk! We had really good food at Pernille's place and just had a very good time with the family. Pictures will come in the next couple of days.

Today will be spent with Jonna and Brian and their family. Should be lots of fun - usually is when we're together! After today, I have some serious vacation time and definitely well-deserved if I may say so myself!

I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Glædelig Jul!

While most of the people I know have Christmas vacation now, I still have Monday and Tuesday at work before I can fully enjoy the holiday season. So, happy vacation to those who have it and to those who have to work, sucks to be us!!

Big news! Tine got us tickets to the AC/DC concert over in Copenhagen next summer! Can you believe it - AC/DC!? I never thought I would see them in concert but June 19th - we will be there and rocking it so hard!

My weekend has been quiet, other than a few hours at work yesterday. Movies, sleeping in and just hanging out - great weekend. Now I have my music blasting, drinking coffee and will soon get some stuff done here at home so I can fully relax tonight with no guilty feelings of being lazy.

Mmm, coffee.....

I can't remember the last time I spent a Saturday here at home. An entire Saturday with no plans and so far, I'm loving it. It's almost 1pm and I'm drinking a cup of coffee while listening to my music channel on tv - todays theme is 1993 and that totally brings back some memories!

My week was pretty good. Work, work and more work. I did have a Christmas party at work last night and that was so much fun! Already during the day, my co-workers and I were in the party/xmas mood and had a blast. I actually wore a dress to the party and I looked GOOD! Myco-workers all commented on the fact that I actually looked all girly but they were all good comments. The party itself was hilarious. Good food, lots of laughs, singing and dancing. We rocked the place!

I didn't sleep much last night since it was late when I got home but I made it up in time to set a load of laundry over and then made my way over to the garage (my Saturday job) but ended up going home again. No kids were there and Bjarne (my coworker) was enjoying the peace and quiet to catch up on some studying - no complaints from me!

So far, I am catching up on all my laundry, cleaning up around here and am just plain enjoying the peace and quiet. No plans for tonight either! YAY ME! I can paint. Read. Sleep. Eat. Watch tv. Emails. Blogs. Clean. Whatever I want!! (Can you hear the excitement? I seriously am in heaven right now.)

So.... how are things going around the world? Everyone getting ready for Christmas? I will be spending Christmas Eve with my cousin and her family out in Nørup and that should be lots of fun. I don't get to see them that often which is a shame because my cousin (and of course the rest of the family) is such a nice person. I still need to finish my gift shopping - or should I say start?? But I'm not at all sure of what I should get any of them and how I'm going to make that work in my budget at the moment - I'm still struggling after moving and the bills have hit me all at once but I will make it work. I always do!

Mondays aren't that bad. I get to sleep in and do my own thing here at home before I have to work at the club. I've been trying to get my stuff organized here and turn it into a "Rie-home". I'm trying to find my style but I don't think I have a specific style so that's kind of hard. None of my furniture actually match, I still need to unpack lots of stuff and I need to soon figure out some more lighting... BUT it's home. And it's my home!

So I just spent the morning relaxing and putting artsy stuff away. I still need to hang up my shelves and once they come up, then alot of junk can be cleared up. Yes... I have lots of junk...

My weekend went well. Perhaps too well because I didn't get anything done yesterday and basically just slept the entire day away. But that was probably needed and I definitely enjoyed a quiet Sunday. Sundays are my only days without any work so I try to just seriously relax and trust me - I just relaxed! I was at work at a youthparty Friday night and that went well. Over 300 teenagers and most of them behaved themselves. Me and some co-workers went out for drinks afterwards but since I had to work Saturday morning, I behaved myself too. But we had fun - we always have fun at work. I love my job!

Work on Saturday was good too. Not that many kids came by but that's probably because they were all at the youthparty. I ended up going out Saturday night which wasn't a part of my plan but I'm glad I did because it was fun! Greg is a Canadian living here in DK for 6 months because of his job and we met over the internet - a meetup group for "non-Danes" living in DK (people who work here, married to a Dane or just people like me....). Anyways, him and I went over to Peter's place for dinner and then ended up going downtown. Lots of fun. Too much fun! Peter is freaking hilarious so we spent most of the night laughing and just goofing around. Drinking was involved as well and yes, I did have a "slight" hangover Sunday. I wish I had taken some pictures to share but I didn't have my camera with me. Sorry! Some of you are complaining about me writing too much and not remembering to take pictures so I will soon, I promise!

So now it's Monday and another work week ahead of me. I should probably finish up here and start getting ready for today - I doubt I can go to work looking and smelling the way I do now...

I'm at the youth club in Nørup so if I suddenly end this post, you'll know why. Things here are ok. Lots of work to do with my different jobs and my apartment but I'm just taking one day at a time. Trying to also have a life on the side but being the responsible adult I am, my social life is at a minimum. I have to work Friday night but I'm thinking that we'll all go out for a beer afterwards and try to have some fun. But since I'm working Saturday, I better behave myself!

I have a teenager standing over my shoulder, reading my post.... I better drop the idea of updating my blog for now.
