Loud music and coffee - that's what my "mornings" are like. I rarely watch tv but ALWAYS have music playing. Sometimes loud and sometimes not so loud. Today, it's loud. I'm in that kind of mood.

I only have two more shifts up at JB and then I have a long weekend followed by vacation. YAY ME! It's not going to be 100% vacation because I still have to work at the club in Nørup next Wednesday, a course Thursday evening and then of course the garage on Saturday but I'm off during the days. My plans consist of visiting friends who live outside of Vejle and homey stuff like painting, cleaning, reorganizing, laundry blah blah blah.

I survived a killer weekend but I can definitely feel that I'm no longer a teenager. But I'll admit, I had a freaking blast! I'm going out again Saturday after work with some friends so we'll see how that turns out. I think I go out a lot during the weekends because I rarely see anyone other than kids and co-workers during the weekdays and it's just great seeing my friends when we can make it happen.

Ok, now I'm just babbling - coffee babble. I'm going to log off now and find some socks. I hate having to match up my socks after laundry but that means that when I need to find socks, I have issues. It's time for me to get ready for work - two more evening shifts and then I'm on vacation!

when I have powertools!?

Ok, some people might find that sentence slightly perverted but it wasn't meant in a dirty way. I just finished hanging up some shelves in my living room - ALL BY MYSELF! They are slightly crooked and we'll see what happens when I actually put stuff on them but that's not the point. The point is - I DID IT MYSELF! See, I don't need a man to help me out. Actually, the plan was that a friend was going to come over and help me out one day but we made those plans several weeks ago and so far, nothing. So, I got impatient, borrowed a kickass mother of a drill from work and made several holes in my wall.


Yes, I'm all excited about stupid shelves. Trust me, my life does have more important things to be excited over but I'm proud of myself and so there!

Life is good. I did a no-drinking/party weekend and instead pulled a 14 hour long work day on Saturday. I can handle partying for hours on end, dancing and goofing around but 14 hours of kids exhausted me. I crashed when I got home and slept in Sunday. Like a rock. Good thing I did that because I went to a Superbowl gathering Sunday evening and that turned into a late night. Lots of fun though and totally worth being beaten up on Monday.

Back to work today and it was a good day. Probably helped that it was also my short day and I get to spend my evening at home. Hanging up shelves and just doing my own thing here. Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE my apartment? I love it more every day. And I get excited when I get to cross something off my long list of things to do and things to buy. I bought shower curtains and a matt yesterday and yes, that made me happy.... in no such twisted way at all.

Weekend coming up will be nuts. Being social Friday and Saturday night with "perhaps" a few drinks. Work Saturday where we're taking the kids to Herning to check out cool motorbikes and scooters. An art-day Sunday with some of my co-workers from JB and some friends where we decided to take advantage of our creative workshop at work. Puha - going to be a killer weekend but I can't wait! Party, work and art - who needs sleep!?

Ok, I'm going for a walk now with a friend and then maybe I'll take some pictures of my lovely homey home. And then, maybe I'll actually post them the next time I blog.
