A car for my mom and a man cave for us?

What a lovely weekend! It was a very busy one, but so rewarding.

Saturday we met up with my mom at the old house to pick up a leather 2 seater she didn’t want anymore. We already took the 3 seater piece for the living room last year.

We have a little man cave (bearcave) upstairs and wanted a sofa to put in it, so this was the ideal thing to do. Because it’s on of those sofas where it has a recliner part, it comes in different pieces – so it was easy for us to take it apart and move it in the car. After moving it to our house we placed everything in the garage. My mom needed to do some stuff in the nearby city, so we decided to join her to the city and have something to eat.

Now that her house is gonna be sold, and the whole separation thing (the cunt was cheating on her for 2 years with a younger woman) is almost over – she had been talking about getting a car lately. At the moment she doesn’t have a car of her own anymore – only if necessary she still uses the car they bought when they were together. So after lunch we took her to the garage so she could have a idea what the costs are, and what you can get for your money.

She fell in love right away 🙂 with this cute car. She looked so happy. I did tell her not to buy the first car she saw… but she did. I didn’t have the heart to tell her she should look at other cars and brands also. But hey, as I said, she looked so happy. So… my mother bought a new car. Happy for her!

For her it’s a new bookmark in life. Single at 66, and a new car to be independent again.

So… after all that we went back to our house to fill up the car with the old sofa – and take it to the dumpster. We went for some groceries afterwards and then straight home. We were both happy and tired. The garage was kind of empty again cause the old sofa was talking up a lot of space – and we had a new sofa that would fit the upstairs room aka bearcave.

Of course we still needed to get the sofa together, and move it upstairs. So after we gave the sofa a good wash we took the different parts upstairs and put it all together. It looked fine! Happy that another part of the house is getting finished.

Sunday morning we got up, had a nice breakfast and coffee and sat in the new sofa upstairs. The rest of the room still clattered with moving boxes, books, dvd, cd, vinyls – stuffed animals and so on… so we decided to start cleaning the room and make space so that we could actually use the room. The cleaning went a lot better then we both thought. Before we knew it the room was cleared and the moving boxes were empty.

After that we went into the garage and cleaned up all the cardboard and other stuff that we put aside when we didn’t have the room when the old sofa was in there. After about a hour we actually had room to move around again and it all looked good.

It was such a good feeling. It felt like a conquered battle – something we wanted to do for a long time but never got to it. My mind was in a happy state 🙂 .

So… that’s our busy but rewarding weekend. Next weekend will be a quiet one, I can tell you that already! 😉

The house is SOLD!

First week of February is almost over, and it has been ok so far.
We had our first training together, and been watching what we were eating.
And also, no alcohol during the week.. i’m so surprised by that to be honest 🙂
Not that we are flaming alcoholics, but still.. we do love a nice drink after work, or before dinner now and then.

We also went to the lightfestival this week. It was a really nice walk, and did us good. Only sad thing about it, it started raining after 30 minutes so by the end of the evening we were soaking, and decided to go back home.

Tonight we are having fries, cause it’s friday. And i’m sure that we will have some alcohol tomorrow evening when watching some tv. Especially cause we will probably need it after tomorrow. We agreed to help my mom find a new car, so i’m going with her to the garage to look at cars. And we also need to move our old sofa, and bring in our new sofa. So… i’m sure we will need alcohol after all of that! 🙂

Oh and I almost forgot! Good news: the house is SOLD! Thank GOD for that!
Just a few more details, and signing of papers, and it’s all done. Then my mother can move on, and I don’t have to deal with the stress of it anymore.
So all by all.. it’s been a good first week 🙂

Sending you all hugzzz,

Almost D-day…

Yep, almost 1st of February. And as I said in previous posts, it’s time to start getting back on track.

So after a lovely weekend, hanging out with the hubby, doing our tasks and shopping, we decided to visit a museum. (Yes we do have some culture) It’s all about how machines and industry have changed during the years. Was nice to see, we both enjoyed it.

We also talked about our health and how to try and hang in there. Trying to motivate each other will be a big one, we both need motivation now and then. So we shall try and do our training together from now on, let’s see how that goes 😉.

We decided to start with smaller portions when it comes to food, and maybe try to eat some more fruit in between.

I already made a big pot of spaghetti sauce last night, and split it over 5 smaller pots so it can go in the freezer. That way it doesn’t cost us that much time to cook, and more time for training. #noexcuse

So let’s see how things go. Let’s take it easy, bit by bit and step by step.

Thanks for reading!

Another week gone

Had a rough week. Things didn’t always played out the way I wanted.
But that’s life I guess.

I’m so happy that the house is almost sold! That would mean some rest in my head, at last…
Things with my uncle are getting better, so that’s less stress. And then the only thing on my mind should be me, myself and I. Promised myself to look at some things in a different perspective, and hopefully that will also easy my mind a bit.

So let’s see how things go.

This weekend I wanna try and have a nice walk with the hubby, maybe a nice meal somewhere… Other then that, just wanna enjoy my weekend. Some gaming will be on the agenda for sure. 🙂

So how are you all doing, what are your plans for the weekend?

Sending you all big hugzzz,

Missing motivation?

Not sure what it is, but I’m really missing motivation at the moment. With all the stuff going on from selling my moms house, trying to focus on new goals at work and being healthy – I feel drained and without energy and motivation.

When I come home there is always someone calling me, or counting on me to do something. Or I’m expected to be at a meeting for the radio station…

Have troubles feeling relaxed and rested. So what happens is – I come home and instead of doing my cardio, I take my shower, have dinner and watch tv or read a book before going to bed.

Things is, that it’s all a vicious circle. Cause I wanna be relaxed, without stress… but because I’m not doing any cardio – I start stressing about it, and so the circle repeats itself.

Feels sometimes like there are not enough hours in a day.
