Land Ladies from Hell, Tripple Shifts and a Funeral..

Life has been more than busy for me here lately.. Having the whole appartment search, trying to decide wether or not to move. While thinking it over, we are dealing with the land ladies here, two sisters. One wants to raise the rent by 1/3 if we decide to stay, that's after she at first wanted us to move. She think the place is too small for two, nothing she really can decide, as the law is clear on that part. But the contract has to be renewed 1. of April, so she can pretty much do as she pleases.. In the middle of dealing with that I received a letter from the other sister, wanting to raise the rent slightly since there has been some more expenses on the property this winter.. Don't think it's even leagel! Like I'm paying anything more for what we had to go through here this winter.. Chopping out big holes in our walls and the heater not working properly.. I told her what I thought and that the rent will be raised in April anyway.. Seems like the comunication between them two is next to nothing, and their business skills..

Last week was quite on the insane side..! Went through trippel shifts at work and a funeral on Thursday, a close revlative died. My moms cousin, we have been quite a bit with them over the years. Not an eye was dry at the reception, even my love was sitting and crying, though he only met him once. It's just the whole situation I think. He got the message that he has cancer a week before he died, he passed away 62 years old. Still a young old man, too early to go.. Seeing those who is left behind and their pain is really the most difficult part about it all I think.. His three sons, where the two youngest is still in their 20's, and his wife.. Life is such a fragile gift. It's a real reminder to make the most out of it while you actually have it!

At the end of the week I felt totally knocked out, mentally and fysically exhausted. I capitulated on the sofa with a beer in one hand, the remote in the other and a bowl of chips.. Hahah Knock out after 5 beer!extremely effective sedation.. Very needed;)

On the good side, my love has got a vacancy for Map Google!! He starts working this month, I'm so happy for him:) He also got back to norwegian classes this month. Finally things are moving in the right direction a little faster! Things will get easier and it's a great for him to have something more to do than cleaning dishes and making dinner.. Hmmm though I have to admit, I will miss my house husband:)

Who wouldn't want one of these?  I mean the ironing board..

The 4 bottles of life

Good instructions

And sedate yourself when needed;)
