Going Home ... AGAIN!

Well, my mom has been in the hospital pretty much since we left Tennessee. She's had heart surgery and some difficulty with her lungs. I've been undecided about when to go back home... gee we just got here!! But we finally found some tickets last night and the trip is now booked. Sofia and I leave Wednesday morning at 7:10 for Stockholm. Then we have an almost 24 hour layover in Arlanda Airport, Stockholm. We will have to use the 'Rest and Fly' Service there I guess. Then on Wednesday morning, we fly to Frankfurt, Germany - from there to Charlotte, NC and then on into Tri-Cities. Gonna be a rough trip and now I've got to get to doing some packing! Please say a prayer for my family, dear friends!

No Time to Play!

Wow, I haven't even gotten all my stuff unpacked since we got home. It's just so much stuff and I can't believe I was such a crazy shopper!! I thought I would share some pics anyway...

Unfortunately, if you read my next post... you'll understand why I have no time to play. I guess I'll be packing up a bit of it to piddle with while I am home since I sure CANNOT afford to buy anything!!

Want some free goodies?

I know I sure would!

Go on over to and get your name in the drawing for this Hello Beautiful! Collection. I tell ya, I could use a gorgeous collection like that... just to look at and admire for awhile, if nothing else! LOL In fact, it might be just the thing to cheer me up and inspire me to bounce back and scrap something... and do I ever have just the right photo for this!

Back home again..

After 8 weeks home in Tennessee, we arrived home to Kiruna last night about 11:00 pm and we were so tired. A 26 hour trip and 400 pounds of luggage! Whew!!

This morning, there is snow on the ground here in Kiruna. Sure it's not much snow right now, but it's enough to depress me even more!Here is a photo, for the record.

We're feeling really weird and even Sofia got up from bed and sacked out on the sofa watching tv. It takes a long time to feel normal again. I hope I'll be able to get into this blogging thing when I pick myself up and get my life back in order...
