Emergency Room, Sick & Exam results ~ Situation Sunday

It’s Sunday and another week has passed. We are getting closer and closer to Christmas and I wish it would snow outside. But we are stuck with 8 degrees Celsius and cloudy weather. I have just seen the sun for a couple of hours this week.

As you know I been home sick this week. All week, so I have missed the first two lectures of my new course, but I have maxing friends that have sent me their notes. And this week last two classes were cancelled because the professor got sick. And that’s fine by me because that means I hopefully am not sick when they are rescheduled. 

If you read my post from Monday night, you know my husband had to go to the Emergency Room, but the doctors think it was just his cold and fever that was the problem. He is still not okay. And I am actually still worried about him. He hates going to the doctor, but I feel like I might have to convince him to go next week if he doesn’t get better.

I got some amazing news on Tuesday afternoon, but I will share that with you in another post later on. Right now I just want to keep it secret for a little while longer. But it’s about the same thing that I wrote a post about for a couple of weeks ago. You can read it here.

And as you might have read on Wednesday, my husband and I had been together for 12 years that day. We did not calibrate because we both were sick so we will do that another day.

Friday I went to my grandmother’s house to start going through the things that we are dividing between my father, my uncle, my brother and me. My grandmother passed away in August, and my father and uncle have been going through her house for about two months now dividing things between them and now they thought it was my brother and my time to see if we wanted anything after her and my grandfather. It was really hard being there and going through her things. I miss her so much. But I am thankful for all the memories and that I get to keep some things as a memory after her. I am going back today to look at some more things and see my uncle.

And this afternoon my husband and I are eating dinner with my mother, my father, my brother, my sister-in-law and my nephew at my parent’s apartment. 

I also got the news on Friday, that I passed my Statistic Exam. I am so happy. Now I can focus fully on my Law course and place the statistic books in my bookshelf. And hopefully, I will never study Statistics again. 

This weeks posts are:

I hope everyone have an fantastic Sunday.

Walks ~ Self-Care Saturday

It’s a cloudy Saturday here in Sweden and I am still not over my cold, but it’s time for this week’s Self-Care post. 

There are so many ways to take care of yourself. And I have already cared some with you. One thing I like to do is take walks, short or long. You get out in the fresh air and you can think. Also, you get exercise which is important and good for you.

I usually walk with my dogs. And my husband is with me at least one walk a day. For me is the walking a way to relax. Not see the things that I need to do at home, or with my studying. Just to walk and think about whatever comes to my mind. Yesterday when my husband and I took the last walk of the days with the dogs, I thought about the moon. And that was relaxing for me.

Walking also gives me perspective over things. For example, when I got stuck on an assignment for school I can take a walk and relax, and I usually get a new idea when I am out in the fresh air. 

Do you take a walk every day? Have an amazing Saturday and if you can try taking a walk today. Alone or in the company with dogs, friends and/or family.

Love, Nea

Iron Man ~ Fangirl Friday

So with the recent death of Stan Lee, I wanted to change today’s planned post to a post that honours him. And because I wrote about Stan Lee the other day I thought it was fitting that I today write about Iron Man. A character that Stan Lee created with Larry Lieber, Don Heck and Jack Kirby.

I want to write about the first Iron Man movie that came out in 2008.

Iron Man is about Tony Stark, billionaire and playboy. He is the son of Howard Stark, a legendary inventor. Tony Stark is going to give a weapons presentation to a unit in Iraqi, but his Humvee is attacked and Tony is taken, hostage. He is hurt and to survive he must have a car battery attached to his heart. He figures out a way to make the battery smaller and now Iron Man is born. He escapes and back in at home he starts building a better Iron Man suit. But someone wants to take Stark Industries technology and use it for something. 

“Iron Man. That’s kind of catchy. It’s got a nice ring to it. I mean it’s not technically accurate. The suit’s a gold titanium alloy, but it’s kind of provocative, the imagery anyway.” ~ Tony Stark (when reading the Newspaper)

Tony Stark is portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. and his assistant Pepper Potts is portrayed by Gwyneth Paltrow.

Stan Lee has a cameo in this movie like he does in many other Marvel movies. Watch it here:

I love the Iron Man movies, because much like the tagline: “Heroes aren’t born. They’re built.” I feel like everyone can become a hero. And we all need heroes in our lives. And there are many different kinds of heroes. You can be someone who to stand up for those who doesn’t have a voice. Or someone who saves animals that doesn’t have a home. Or a firefighter. A policeman. A doctor. Someone who fights for human rights. 

I also love Iron Man because I think the story is brilliant. I love watching Marvel movies and tv-show because I feel like it’s quality in the production and the storylines are interesting and different. 

If you haven’t watched Iron Man yet, its about time to do so now…

Love, nea

Racer-Zelda and the little tree



I was out on the morning walk with the dogs. It´s cloudy outside and the ground is wet from the rain that came yesterday. The dogs are understimulated because my husband and I aren’t completely well yet. And they start chasing each other and playing. They still have their leases on. And you know in movies how dogs run around a person so they can’t move. They did that to me, so I almost fell, but I am getting used to it so I was trying to get loose from Oracles lease when Zelda thought it was a good idea to run around a little tree…  And can you guess what happens next? 



The tree is quite flexible and Zelda try to get free, so the tree bends when she tries running to me so I get the tree like a whip in the side of my head. It hurt. But Zelda didn’t understand why I got angry at her. She was just really proud that she got lose from the tree herself.


Now we are inside in the warmth again and the dogs seem to be pleased with their morning walk.



Later today I will post my Fangirl Friday post. Hope you read it!                    Have a wonderful Friday!



Love, Nea


Love ~ Throwback Thursday

It’s time for Throwback Thursday and because my husband and I had our 12 year anniversary yesterday as a couple I want to share a picture of him and me together in the early days of our relationship. 

My husband and me, Autumn 2007

My husband and I have been through thick and thin, but we are still here and we still love each other.

A lot of people thought we were too young when we got together. And even more so when moved into an apartment after 1,5 years relationship. This was a couple of weeks before I turned 18 and he turned 20, but we didn’t care. And now I am really glad that I didn’t listen to them.

Now I am married to the love of my life and the man that is my best friend.

12 years ago today

Today it has been 12 years since my husband and I became a couple. If someone would have told me for 13 years ago that I would be here living with my husband and two dogs, I would not have believed them. I did not feel like someone could love me for me. But now I am happily married to my best friend and the love of my life.

He’s there for me in so many ways. And I know that he will always be here for me. He is the glue that holds me together in tough times. He’s my rock that keeps me steady when I have a hard time standing up. He’s my shelter when I feel scared.

I am lucky to have this amazing man in my life and to call him my husband. Next week we have been married for 4 months.

I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with this fantastic man.

I love you A!

 

Michelle Obama ~ WCW

Michele Obama, a woman that I look up to in so many ways, is this week’s Women Crush Wednesday. I think everyone knows her as Barck Obama’s wife and The First Lady of America from 2009 to 2017. She’s a lawyer and writer. And her book: Becoming, is a book that’s on my wishlist for Christmas.

She is this week WCW because:

  • She started “Let’s Move!” in 2010. A movement to solve childhood obesity.
  • She launched “Let Girls Learn“, to help girls around the world get an education.
  • She stands up for what she believes in.
  • She is kind and caring.
  • She is honest and open about being a black person in the USA
  • She loves her husband and even though they have had their up and downs, they still together. And they act like they just fell in love. Its beautiful and something I hope to have with my husband.
  • She cares about the service members, veterans and their families. Together with Dr Jill Biden she launched Joining Forces in 2011. It’s an initiative to help and support service members, veterans and their families with education, employment opportunities and wellness.
  • She is not afraid to be herself.
  • She shares her quirks and all with us.

Watch Michelle Obama on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke:

 

Shes just a great inspiration to me. Listen to this:

 

Some of my favourite quotes:

“I always say that women should wear whatever makes them feel good about themselves. That’s what I always try to do.” ~ Michelle Obama

“We explain when someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you do not stoop to their level. Our motto is when they go low, you go high.”~ Michelle Obama

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.” ~ Michelle Obama

“You can’t make decisions based on fear and the possibility of what might happen.”  ~ Michelle Obama

“Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with.”  ~ Michelle Obama
