Today I had a plan to share a post about how awful it is to be awaken 05 in the morning, being super busy at work and just simply never get a break. Then I read in the local newspapers about a five year old boy and his three year old sister. Being hit by… Continue reading The important little things
The kids were playing so nice and quietly today that we didn't tell them that the dinner was ready. We simply ate a pleasant, quiet meal. Had some grown up conversation.

Friends we've known for a… Continue reading Happy family (for once)
Today I actually started crying at work. That's a first for me. I do not have a very emotional demanding job and I prefer keeping most of my emotional states (crying) to my self.
