It's Monday.... another work week ahead. Not a bad thing but right now, I just can't seem to find my energy for a long day.

My weekend was good. Friday was another danish holiday so no official work. But I helped out my co-worker host a bday party for her son.... so 25 kids had to be fed and entertained. Dorte and I are used to kids so it wasn't a huge deal at all. They had fun, we survived and the bday boy had a good day.

Afterwards, I went over to Karin and Ernst's place - invited myself over for dinner and a sleepover. We had to go to a meeting early Saturday morning so to make things easier for me, I crashed at their place. Good dinner - can't remember the last time I ate potatoes and gravy! My cousin Jesper was there as well, with his two twins - Line and Tobias. Cute kids but holy shit, definitely a handful! I was exhausted after a few hours so I can't imagine what it's like having them fulltime. Parents - you have my respect!

Meeting on Saturday went well but I was exhausted when I got home. Karin and I ended up talking way past midnight Friday night and then getting up at 7am.... I don't do mornings that well. I was tired.

Saturday evening and Sunday was quiet. Talked to the parental units Sunday, went for a bike ride with Lise, voted, studied... kinda boring to write about. Nothing all that interesting. But that's ok, right? I needed a somewhat quiet weekend.

Now it's Monday... I already said that, eh? But yeah, it's still Monday and I still have to work today. Long day.... won't be off until 1030 pm tonight. So I better get some stuff done now while I have the time. Make some coffee, turn up the music and find my energy.

Have a great week!

Wow, what a weekend! JELLING FESTIVAL 2009!

Yes, I'm still alive. Barely. But it was totally worth it! For the first time, I went to the music festival in Jelling for three days, as a guest. NO WORK! And it rocked! 26,000 people came! The weather was gorgeous - at least 25 degrees and the sun was shining for three days straight. It got slightly chilly in the evenings but it was enough to just have a jacket on. Perfect weather.

We partied Friday (after work), Saturday and Sunday... although Sunday was a little quiet in the evening because we were all so tired. During the days, we vegged on our blankets, taking naps, taking to people, drinking and eating (NO MORE junk food for the next long while - my tummy can't handle it!) and then when it got a little cooler, we got some energy and danced, drank and just had a blast until we took the bus back to Vejle at 2am-ish. Then we woke up in the morning, showered, ate and went back to Jelling. FUN FUN FUN! But I'm glad it only happens once a year, because I'm beat. My body hurts - aches and pains in my muscles. Sunburnt face and shoulders. Tired but happy.

Rie and Lise Saturday night - Finding our energy for the Nephew concert!

Rie, relaxing in the sun Saturday afternoon.

This isn't my picture, I found it on the Internet at www.vejleamtsfolkeblad.dk. But it's a great picture that shows the energy at the festival.

My brain is mushy right now. It's again a gorgeous day and I'm doing my own thing here at home. Music and laundry. Cleaning up and just plain relaxing so I'm ready for work tomorrow. Ate some real food - yummy. Maybe I should start a detox diet for the next couple of days to get all that crap from the festival out of my system. A short week this week. We're off today and also off on Friday - gotta love spring/summer danish holidays!

I'm gone again. I want to get more done here at home before I crash on my couch tonight.
