5QF - 01/29/10

Yippieh, it's Friday and this means time for Mama M. 5 Question Friday!
Hop over to her blog and join it. It's always fun :-)

My Little Life

1. Would you ever vacation alone?
> Yes. I once did. Or maybe twice. I did it to sort my mind, to have some time for myself. It happened when times where quite hard for me and wanted to get back to myself again.

2. Do you go the speed limit?
> Yes! I'm a speed junkie! 240 km/h? Lame! ;-) Really...

3. Why did you start blogging/following blogs?
> Reading experiences of other moms, how's parenting doing, how do they feel. And well, share my experiences and stuff.

4. Where do you shop for yourself?
> H&M. Or S.Oliver. Sometimes Hilfiger or Boss.

5. What was the song that you danced your first dance with your spouse to at your wedding...or...what song would you like your first dance to be to?
> It was Elton John's "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". I wanted to stay on the stage and sing it but wasn't brave enough (although my singing teacher encouraged me). So we chose it for the first dance as it is a waltz.

Nice again!

TTMMD: Friday - 01/29/10 -

Well this day will probably not my day. Today's the funeral...
So that's why I chose "Where the wild roses grow" by Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue.

Wishing you a lovely day and a wonderful weekend!

Writer's Workshop - Muffin Tin

It's time again for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. Jump over and choose one of the prompts.
Mama's Losin' It

This week was a tough decision to make for me. I really had no idea so I chose the easiest thing: the muffin tin menu.

So, here it is:

(beginning from top left, clockwise)

2 waffle hearts - cereals - Ernie and Bert cookies - Scheiblettenkäse/cheese slice - tomato - zucchini risotto

TTMMD: Thursday

Today, I wanna present you a nice and so true quote about health and body shaping.
It was said by Josh Billings:

There's lots of people in this world who spend so much time watching their health that they haven't the time to enjoy it!

Have a wonderful day!

>> Memories are like little stars which shine consolatoryly through our grief <<

This is one of my favorite condolence verses. I needed to write quite many in the last years and really, I would be glad if this will stop. Soon. Now.
As I noticed yesterday night, an acquaintance died. He was ran over by a train, Friday night. At the age of 20. No one knows how this could have happened.

My "bro" died nearly 4 years ago, at the age of 19. (He wasn't my real brother but a very very close friend and we felt like siblings to each other.) He got an accident while driving around with his motorbike. The truck in front of him applied the brakes all of a sudden and he got under the truck and was dead, immediately.

And there were a lot of other young, very young people who died by car accidents or something. This is so horrible and I don't get it. And those are the time I'm not sure if there's a God. I know there is one but it makes it hard to believe. Why does he take those young and nice people from us? I mean, if one is 83 years old and is dying of some physical infirmity it's quite sad at all but it's OK. Don't misunderstand me, I hope you'll get it right.
But what the hell does He think when taking away those kids? They are still kids, there's a lot of life to experience out there which is so worth to get known to. Why don't they get the chance?

I really believe in God. I'm a Christ, an ex-ministrant. I know He has his reasons. I hope He has his reasons, good reasons. But I don't get it?
Sometimes, I thought that we aren't good people if such a bereavement happens to us. Maybe He wants to victimize us? But this is as illogical as the other stuff.
Those are the moments, I want to talk to Him, face to face. Just to make him tell me the reason for this move...

>> But I trusted in thee, oh Lord. I said: Thou are my God. My times are in thy hand... <<
(Psalm 31, 15)

Better Blogger?

Damn it. I'm quite a bad blogger. I know that. My posts aren't daily or on a regular basis.
So as I want to be a better blogger I signed up at ProBlogger for the 31 DBBB challenge. And I even don't make it to write those first posts.

Maybe I should unsubscribe this thing. Or it would be great if I needn't to post every day. And I don't want to talk about my failure and lazyness in the forum.

Well, if you don't mind, I'd stay the bad blogger. Just as you used to know me so far *g*
No, I really do my very best to improve.

I just got an addict of Sims3 and discovered Facebook. And I need to do my household. And, as you all know, I'm blogging secretly as my husband don't want me to blog.
Very lame excuses, I know. And I'm a bad wife, too as I do have secrets. :-(
But hey, that's just the way I am.

No, honestly, I'm not always bad and mean. I can be very nice and kind. If I want to *g*

Stupid post. I'm off...

25 January 2010


There was a great article in my latest parent magazine about having tattoos (and there was a thread, too).

In the parent magazine they discussed having the kid's names tattooed. A mom asked other moms what they think about this. Some moms don't like tattoos at all and other had some tattoos and liked the idea. Most of the inked moms (or dads) have the kid's name/s tattooed on the forearm so it's visible for nearly anybody. Some other moms raised concerns what the kids would say when being a teen and their parents still show ther names on their arms wouldn't that be embarrassing for the kids?

Honestly, I like this objection. I never thought about this. I have two tattoos on my own (an abstract woman's body at the tailbone, one big star with angel's wings on my left side and two smaller stars underneath) and I really like to have D's initial on my right loin and the second kid's initial on the left loin. I really like this idea and I thought about letting them tattooed after the second pregnancy when our family planning is done.
I never had any concern. Never. Why should I? They will be hideable and only me and hubby are going to see them. But D will know this. And maybe it'll be visible when wearing a bikini. Will this be embarrassing for my kids? OK, we all know, when you're a teen the parents are always embarrassing *g* That's just the way it is and it'll be OK. But I do not want to embarrasse them even more.
I'm sure that if I wouldn't work as a clerk I'll put the tattoos on my wrist. So then, they would be really visible. Everytime. I won't do this coz I need to get back to work again somewhen so this is no option.

What do you think about this? Will having their names tattooed somewhere on our body embarrasse our kids? Are you having your kid's names tattooed? And if it's so, where?
Would like to know your point of view!

Because yes, maybe it's embarrassing for them but can't I be proud? And so I'll show the world/my world that I gave birth twice and love my kids. I will get my tattoos, no matter what they will think about it ;-)

Have a wonderful day and a good start to this new week!

Getting To Know You - 25/01/10

Yes I know, it's already Monday but well, I'm still able to put my link up. And you all know that I do not post on weekends. So I decided to join in this carnival by Keely. Sounds like fun :-)

1. Waffles, pancakes or french toast?
> Pancakes.

2. Dream home..What would it look like?
> Huge *g* Maybe like that: via here

3. Favorite sport to watch during the Winter Olympics?
> I don't watch Winter Olympics. But if I would I'd watch triathlon. This is quite not boring at all...

4. The first word that comes to mind when describing yourself?
> Weird.

5. Dresses, pants (jeans, leggings, etc.) or skirts?
> Definitely pants, especiall jeans. Nothing better and more comfortable to wear for me.

6. What is your favorite time of day?
> When D is in bed, asleep.

7. Beach or Mountains..which do you prefer?
> Beach, of course. Warm, sunny, sand, blue water...

8.Will you watch the Super Bowl?
> No. This would be in the middle of the night (and I don't get those rules...).

Have a nice day!

5QF 01/22/10 and Blank Friday

Let's start with Mama M.'s 5 Question Friday. Check out her blog and join in!

1. What is better, growing old with out money or dying young and wealthy?
> Yound and wealthy. Yes, very selfishly. This would be quite hard for my family and friends but I never wanted to get old. I never want to get 75 or older. Really not. Don't ask my why. I'm more afraid of getting old than of dying. Bad karma...

2. Who takes out the garbage at your house?
> Hubby. He's the garbage man. (I'm glad about it, I really am!)

3. Have you ever had the same dream many times?
> Yes. After seeing "Nordwand" I dreamt about three nights that I'm staying at the Eiger Nordwand and my hands and feet were black frozen... I always woke up in total panic.

4. Can you play a musical instrument?
> Uhm... No... At school and some years after I played recorder and alto recorder. But I'm sure I couldn't play it anymore. Such a shame. My instrument is my voice :-)

5. If you owned your own store, what would you sell?
> Cakes. Selfmade, of course. Selling my own cakes. And coffee. Like a little café. Yes, that would be my store... *dreaming*


And now on to Tamara's Fill in the Blank Friday:

The movie I could watch over and over again is ____________.

"Dirty Dancing". And "Sissi". Very girly. I know. But I love them... True love, a bit of tragedy - perfect :-)

Have a wonderful night!

I'm Done

I'm so done today. I'm tired. My back hurts. I just wanna sit down and cry.

That afternoon, I decided to go shopping. Just a bit. So we get ready and drove down in the city. I wanted to buy some little shoe-socks for D, but they didn't have his size. So instead I bought some biscuits and other baby stuff needed. Then I met a friend at Starbucks. D was really nice but after 30 minutes he got bored, even with his favorite book and toy. So we headed back home.
And this was the moment I really just wanted to get to bed, it was 7pm.
I fed D with his semolina pudding he gets every evening as supper. I got him ready for bed, cleaned up his room and put off the lights. Next moment I wanted to go to bed (8:15pm).
Then I wanted to get my button ready to launch and get something to eat so I could be in bed at 9pm. Uhm, yes, that would've been really great. Unfortunately, D couldn't get asleep. He was staying in his little bed and was screaming and crying. I don't know why. Maybe his teeth were hurting. I already gave him some globules but he didn't calm down. It took until about 9:15pm until he was quiet.
I waited some minutes if he's really asleep. Yay, supper time for mommy. I put a pizza in the oven, sat down and watched TV, phoned with my mom backbiting on a wedding invite we received today.
Now, it's 10:30 pm, I'm still awake. I need to get my butt out of my warm bed quite early tomorrow as I need to see my doc for a fasting blood test.
I really go to bed now. I really do. Good Night!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Friday night, I was out with one of my best friends. We went to the cinema for seeing "Did you hear about the Morgans?" Really, the movie is great and we enjoyed it quite much.
The reason why we went out was not even that we both wanted to watch that movie. No. The main reason was that my hubby and her boyfriend wanted to do a Wii night. Yes, they wanted to play Wii.
Well, how lame did they get? Some years ago, they would have joined a LAN-party mean packed up their PC and played some shooter games with other guys. Or Playstation. But Wii? Yes, playing Wii is a nice and funny thing when you are playing with some friends and stuff. But men, grown-up, playing archery on the Wii. Really, that made me laugh…
As my friend and me didn't want to join in this thing we decided to go to the cinema. But aren't we lame as well? Some years ago, we would have gone to a disco all night long, dancing until our feet hurt. But no, we just went to the cinema and headed right back home afterwards.
Yes, parenthood makes us lame…. Don't it? But guess what? I really like it this way.

And yesterday evening, I visited a friend who had a jewelry party. So we girls just met to buy some jewelry which you cannot buy elsewhere. It was really fun and the jewelry was fab. I could have bought nearly everything. Hey, I'm female *g* But I just bought a nice ring. In some days time it'll be mine :-)

Yes I enjoy such lame girly stuff. I really do. A very positive attribute of motherhood…
Enjoy your day!

Writer's Workshop - My Jouney To My 'Homes'

Time again for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. Check out this week's prompts and join in!

Once again I chose prompt no. 4 - How many homes have you had? Write a journal entry about ALL the places you’ve called ‘home’ in your life

You can title my "home"-journey with this: EMELE. Not much so far…
I started, of course, at my parent's home in a suburb of E. It was a nice home and it was quiet and everything was great. I had my own room and it was very harmonic.
Until I got 17 and met M. He asked me to move to M., the city where he was living. At first, we saw each other just at the weekends where I was the idiot and drove to M. every Friday afternoon by train and back home on Sunday evening. After finishing my school and got 18, I found a job there and decided to move to M. forever. It's about 250 km away from my parent's home.
After some months, when visiting my parents because it was my brother's birthday, my friends and family asked and begged me to come back. My friends were honest and were afraid that I will lose myself completely when I'd stay in M. much longer. So I split up with M and moved back to my parents. I started a social year as I was too late for a new apprenticeship. I didn't need to pay rent or for my food or something. I got a car and got back to normal life.
Some years later, I dated a nice man who's marriage broke up shortly before we met each other. He immediately fell in love with me although he was quite older than me. After dating for about a year, I fell truly in love with him, too. So he rented a great apartment and after some months I moved in with him. This was in L. I still did my apprenticeship so he paid all the rent. But I needed to drive to work for about 30 km every day and 30 km back after work.
After a year and a half, we split up because I experienced that the age difference was too much for me. I was young and wanted to party and do some experiences. Everything he already had. So I needed to get back to my parent's home again. This time it was quite hard and I couldn't wait until my apprenticeship was done. Then I rented my own appartment, in E. I stayed in this very same city where I grew up because I felt comfortable there and it was nice.
I still live here. I like it. My hubby likes it. My parents are near for babysitting and stuff so this is really great :-)
This was my jouney through EMELE…. Hope you enjoyed it.

What's On Your Mind?

Well, actually, there's nothing on my mind. Last year, I was sure that my writer's block was caused by the stress before Christmas. But I still have the writer's block. I really don't know what to write about. When I cleaning up the kitchen in the morning or before I get asleep then there are always so many topics on my mind to write about. But whenever I sit here on my PC my mind is empty.
I really wanted to post more and give you some stories but my life seems really boring. There's nothing to write about. Or it'll be a quite short post. So I'm really glad that there are those blog carnivals which guarantee at least two posts a week plus my TTMMD on Thursday (quotes) and Friday (songs). But I really try my very best to post some more than just this.
And sometimes I don't have any time to post or even read other blogs.
I guess my blog will never be one of those most fav ones *gg* But that's not why I'm here. Sometimes I just need to get something out of my head.

So maybe I will break my writer's block somewhen. I hope it'll be soon…

Have a nice day!

Greek Herdsmen Cream

As everyone was thrilled of the Greek Herdsmen Cream I decided to share this recipe with you.
I need to say that I hate garlic as well as onions. I really don't like them. But I didn't mind the garlic in this cream as it puts the special taste to it.

Hope that you'll like it. So here we go:

Ingredients: (for 8 people)
20 black olives
400 g feta cheese
200 g cream cheese with garlic
5 Ts milk
4 Ts tomato puree

Cut the feta cheese in very small pieces (maybe mash it with a fork) and mix it with the garlic cream cheese in a bowl. Add the milk and tomato puree and mix it. Then add the sliced olives and fold them in.
Season to taste with salt, pepper, oregano and paprika.


The Music Of The Night

Hubby's at work now and D does his nap. So now, I'm sitting here and enjoying my short free time, listening to Paul Potts as his music always relaxes me...
Just weird. I'm getting old - and square. Before being a mom and a wife, I enjoyed listening to Eminem or 50Cent. I relaxed the best way listening to Metallica, Dream Theater and Manowar at full volume. And now just one and a half year later, I'm hearing opera and enjoy it the most. Funny, don't you think. That's just how habits gonna change when being a mom.

But I need this as my weekend was very stressful. Saturday morning, me and D visited some colleagues at my old company. And I'm sooooo glad that I don't need to work there anymore. They all told me that I did the very right thing getting pregnant and that I took the right time for it. And yes, they were soooo right!
Then when we got home we waited for hubby getting home from his shift. D and hubby took their nap and I put up the grocery list for the weekend. After they woke up we went for grocery shopping and then I started baking muffins/cup cakes and a cheese cake for hubby's birthday on Sunday. After the cakes were done I started with the dips. I prepared a Greek herdsmen cream with garlic, black olives and feta cheese and a Curry Dip.
Sunday morning, I started early with cooking noodles for the noodle salad and prepared the third dip, a Remoulade. After our great breakfast and opening gifts, we spent the rest of the day with getting ready and putting up the table and stuff. At 5:30pm, the guests arrived and we had a great dinner with cold meat, different salads and dips and baguette. After D was asleep we served the cake. Well, the guests enjoyed it very much as they left at 11:30pm.
I was soooo done and tired was very happy when I was lying in bed.
That morning I needed to clean up the kitchen. Horrible thing! But now everything is done and so I'm able to enjoy the time now :-)

Hope your weekend was even more relaxing than mine. Have a great start in this week!

16 January 2010


I know I'm quite late for this thing but still in time. I need to hurry up so my answers will be veeery short today. Sorry for that.
Let's start with Mama M.'s Five Question Friday:

1. Worst trouble you ever got into as a teenager?
> Uhm... Such a long time ago... I really don't know, to be honest. I never was in big trouble. I was a wallflower when I was young so no big thing here... Sorry, for not giving you a hot story *g*

2. Are you a morning person or a night person?
> Definitely a night person! Staying up all night and sleeping in.

3. Are you a one-handed or a two-handed Texter?
> One-hand. I'm a lover of those simple cell phones so I just need one hand. But that's enough. I'd rather write email and there - of course - I need both hands.

4. Democrat, Republican, or Independent..or maybe even Green Party (whatever that is).
> If I were a citizen of the US I think I'd rather vote for the Democrats. But well, in Germany we have a different system...

5. Are you a pet person?
> No. I don't like pets. Too much work for me. A kid and a husband is quite enough ;-)

Wonderful weekend!

15 January 2010

TTMMD: Friday

Just with any further ado

Have fun and enjoy your weekend! :-)

14 January 2010

TTMMD: Thursday 01/14/10

Today is Thursday - damn, time is running quite fast...
Thursday is a lovely quote day, quotes about kids, family and love.

I want to share this true quote by Mark Overby with you:

Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm,
but willing to draw blood in its defense

Have a wonderful day!

Writer's Workshop VIII

Time again for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop! Check out this week's prompts here.

This week it's a really hard choice. First I didn't want to do no.4 coz I thought this would be a very short letter and too personally. But as I got no idea for the other prompts (maybe no.2 would've possible) I do it either.
So, here we go:

>>Dear M.
I wanted to thank you. I wanted to thank you for ruining my young life. I wanted to thank you for being so mean to me. I wanted to thank you for the shitty sexual life. I wanted to thank you for treating me like a piece of shit.
Because all this made me stronger and made me the way I am now. I cannot believe that I ever would thank you some day. But that's the way it is.
I was shy. I was young. I was horrible in dealing with boys. I was good in school. I had a perfect apprenticeship. And I lost all of it just because you came into my life.
I left my home. I left my family. I left my friends. I left everything. I quit my job. I moved to a city I didn't know. All alone. Just because of you.
I needed to get grown up very very fast. Too fast. With 19 I had more life experience than everyone being older. And I had the most deepest wound in my soul than anyone I've ever met. Just because of you.
But it changed my life. Completely. I knew I am strong and a fighter. I experienced that I can challenge everything and win. Who I am now, a grown-up girl with much self-confidence, successful in her job after finishing a new apprenticeship and a wonderful mother (but a not so good wife - because of you!), is the conclusion of the horrible time I needed to spend with you.
So thank you making me such a great person!
But there's one more thing I wanna tell you: M., I fu**ing hate you and I wish you all the worst a person could get!
With all the hate, deep from the bottom of my lost soul, your Ex<<

*taking a very deep breath*
This is a time of my life I never ever wanted to remember again. It's OK. It's a loooooong time ago and I did quite well to forget it. But it was the worst thing I've ever experienced so I just let it be…
Have a wonderful day!

12 January 2010


That morning was really great. I enjoyed it very much and D does as well. He played in his room and I did some household and read my blogs...

Then he decided to help me. This is really nice - unless he wants to help in the bathroom. As I put out the laundry of the washing machine to put the clothes in the tumbler or to hang up the clothes he first put the laundry on the floor. Just pulled them out and put them on the floor. Yes, I know, that's his way to help me. But it isn't right.
I asked him to stop as fresh clothes are never put on the floor. He stopped.

And from one second to the other - the whole bathroom floor was flooded with water. D sat right in the middle of the puddle. He was so shocked that everything was wet and he didn't understand. I screech as I got frightened. Then I took D and sat him on the step to the bathtube, the only dry place in the whole bathroom, and started to mop up the whole thing with some towels. Then D realized that he's wet and did something wrong and started to cry. He sat there on the step with this wet trousers and socks and cried.

God, damn, this was soooo sweet. So I paused mopping up and comforted him. I explained what happened and that I first need to mop up the water and then got him changed. He calmed down, sat good on his step and watched his mommy mopping up the disaster he made up.

But well, I cannot blame him for what he did. He just wanted to play with the bucket half full of water which his mommy didn't put away. Coz she was too lazy to walk with the bucket to the seperate toilet to pour it out. That's the truth. I was too lazy. So this was my punishment.

After mopping everything up I took D to change his clothes. And everything was wet. His socks with the rubber sole, his pants, his tights and his onesie. Yay! So I need to change really the whole boy, except his shirt...

You always get a pay-back for being lazy, don't you? I guess, I learned from this thing... Hopefully!

Have a nice day :-)

This and That and Everything

Good Morning Ladies - and Gens!
Hope you had a nice weekend and enjoyed the snow - snow is nearly everywhere around the world now, isn't it?
My weekend was very lame. As I'm ill I was in bed most of the time or sitting on the couch watching TV. So nothing happened...

Yes, normally it's time for my TTMMD on Monday. I won't do this anymore. Remember, Monday I featured a great post from other bloggers but as I'm a small blogger this wasn't successful. And so Mama Kat and Tamara are doing this thing for me now ;-)
But of course I will read your posts and then leave you a comment when I really liked it!

Let's talk about my resolutions for 2010:
  • I want to win more readers and wish to have about 100 readers by the end of the year. I really try to post regularly and interesting stuff.
  • Getting pregnant somewhen within the year - we haven't started yet.
  • Making up a new carnival on Tuesday or Monday. Hope that it will be successful!
That's it. Short but doable :-)

And I'm really glad that our everyday life started. As much as I love my husband and enjoy when he's on holiday and staying with us every das as much I'm glad that he's working again and that I'm able to blog and have some time for myself. I need this and enjoy it quite much!
Don't you enjoy some hours you have on your own? It's like holiday for me ;-) Just hanging around, not to look after D or doing any household stuff - just watching TV, chatting or reading a good book. Damn, those moments are so precious!

So this is what I'm doing now. Hubby is still at work and D is doing his nap - so it's Mommy Time! I will have myself something to eat and watch TV :-)

Have a wonderful start in a nice - and snowy - week!

08 January 2010


OK, I'm very late today. But I'm here and do answering Mama M.'s 5 question :-)
Hop over to her blog and check it out!

Let's start this thing:
1. What's your "comfort food"?
> Comfort Food? Like food that eases heartache or something? Uhm OK.
Chocolate. Pizza. Gummibärle. Everything that isn't good for the hips ;-) Nothing special though.

2. Do you send Thank You's (handwritten or email)?
> Well, we did sent handwritten ones after our wedding and D's baptizm. Those official things. But usually I'll send an email or give the donor a call. Just short to say Thanks for the gift or little somethings.
Coz I do expect the same...

3. If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which show would you choose?
> GZSZ. It's a shortcut for Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten which means Good Times, Bad Times. It's a daily soap and it's all about love and intrigues, rich and poor people and other problems. Love this and try to watch it as often as possible!

4. What is your favorite online recipe site?
> I usually don't use any recipe sites. But I really love Technicolor Kitchen. Patricia always has very nice recipes to try out! Check it out :-)

5. If you had to choose: "Friends" or "Seinfeld"?
> Friends! I don't like Seinfeld so this was easy ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy it!

07 January 2010


D is teething again. I think his back teeth are going to break through. And yes, they all told me that these teeth are the worst. D already has 8 teeth and we didn't have any problems yet. Of course, he is drooling but that was all. Yes, we were lucky so far.
Not so now. Last night, he started crying. So I headed over to his room and gave him some globules to ease the pain a bit. Then he tried to fall asleep again and I wanted to leave his room. But then he started crying again. So I sat down next to his bed and sat there until we fell asleep again.
Back in my bed I couldn't sleep. An hour later, when I just started to fall asleep, he cried again. This time hubby went over to him. Daddy calmed him and so he fell asleep faster.
I really hope that this will not be like this every night…

And as I sat there by D's bed, in the middle of the night, trying to stay awake and not to collapse I thought about having a baby. I remembered that then I need to stay up every 3 hours approx. every night. So as I won't breastfeed I really need to stay up for a bit. Well, I think I'm not ready for this thing, yet.

Have a nice day :-)

05 January 2010

Bad, I'm bad, I'm really really bad

Happy New Year Bloggers out there! :-)

Yes. I'm a bad blogger these days! And I'm sorry for that.
My hubby is still on holidays so blogging is difficult for me. And I got a cold, too.
I hope that we'll get back to everyday life from Monday on. Then, my hubby needs to work again and we'll have routine again.

Then I get back to my blogging routine, as well. My TTMMD posts and maybe I'll make it to get a new carnival started on Tuesday.

This week many things are going on. Yesterday we were invited to a birthday. Tomorrow's my Mom's birthday and on Thursday my FIL turnes 70 so there's a big party going on, too. Hopefully I am able to join in the carnivals this week.

So I'm going back to bed to recover.

01 January 2010


It's Friday and although it's holiday I decided to join in Mama M.'s 5 Question Friday.
And once again, I feel so honored that she has chosen one of my question suggestion!

My Little Life

Here we go:

1. If you could bring one character to life from your favorite book, who would it be?
> This is a good question. I think it would be Amelia Sachs. She's one of the special detectives in the books of Jeffrey Deaver. And she's very tough and brave and I really would like to have a beer with her! (She was performed by Angelina Jolie in "The Bone Collector")

2. Where did you get your very first kiss?
> It was at school. I was about 8. He was one of my class mates and it happened right after the break. Very romantic *gg*

3. How did you welcome in the New Year?
> A chummily couple came over to celebrate with us. We did some raclette and played Phase 10 until it was time to get the hibiscus flowers in the champagne flutes and fill in the sparkling wine. Then we stood on our balcony with our glass of sparkling wine, watched the fireworks and had sparklers on our own. It was wonderful and we enjoyed it quite much. Then we played another game and went to bed at 4am. I'm veeeeeery tired today though :P

4. What is your favorite Beatles song?
> "Let it be" - simple as it is... Love this song!

5. Donuts: Overrated, underrated, or 'bout right?
> Overrated. I like donuts. I really do. But well, just sometimes. I could not eat them every day.

So now, I will have some soup and go to right away. I need some more sleep ;-)
