Work: The work week is rushing a long in a very fast pace. Normally it does go slower but this week has gone by with extra speed. It is my last week of work for a while. Actually I have no idea just exactly how long a while will be. Now I am trying to tie together all the loose ends, finish things that need to be finished. Make a clean and neat ending and trying to make it clear and easy for my replacement to take over.
Spinning class or step class: is what I am trying to decide on for today. My days at the gym here are coming to an end as well and I am trying to squeeze in all my favorite classes before I leave. Something I really hope to find once I am in Basel is a nice gym that I will like. I like variation and having quite a large selection of classes. There is a gym located quite close to our home and I hope and cross my fingers that it will be nice and feel right. The thing with Switzerland seems to be that the gyms are quite expensive and also you usually have to sign up for an entire year. Finding something that fit you is key.
Haircut: Finally I am getting myself a haircut. I was planning on doing it in mid November some time or late November but then I figured it would be better to wait a little longer and get a hair cut right before leaving Sweden. Everyone and anyone that has moved to another country knows it is quite tricky to find yourself a new hair dresser that you trust and that works out. Since I don't know German I don't see myself going to a hairdresser in Basel. With my lively imagination I can just picture exactly how wrong it could go with me knowing almost no German and English foreign language for them. So I will keep my hair dresser that I have had for years and years in Stockholm and go whenever I happen to be in town. The haircut I have badly needed for some time is scheduled today. Feels great.
Friends: I was meeting up with friends for dinner tonight but it had to be cancelld due to illness. We will have to meet up another time. It is time to say the last goodbyes for now. Had dinner with another friend Monday this week. Tomorrow I am going out to C´s sister and her family to spend a last evening with little Ella and Iris. Saturday morning I am taking out my friend E for breakfast, who´s birthday party I am missing as I am flying to Basel that very day. I hate saying goodbyes but hopefully C and I will be able to come for a visit to Sweden sometime during April.
Lists: I am busy making lists of all kinds. Lists of things to do that have to do with the move, packing lists, other lists of important stuff. Lists work really well for me. Before the moving company comes I need to have packed my suitcase with my personal belongings and some clothes, I need to go through what stays and what goes in the kitchen. Need to clean out the freezer and fridge. Need to make a list of all that stays.
Go to bed on time: Every night has become later than I wanted it to be. Yesterday as I was flipping through the channels I came across the movie The Bridges of Madison County with Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep. I love that movie. It is just soooo romantic. I just had to watch it to the very end even if I have seen it several times before. So it got late again.
