Madeleine is turning 21

In my house everyone loves Madeleine so I though it would be perfect to have a little birthday party for her at our house. It was a pretty hot day the 17th of May and we were working so that meant we could have fun with the kiddos. I’d made a card and a cake for her. S helped me make a punchbowl and set the table. We filled up some water balloons and also got the sprinklers ready for the kids. I had some how messed up the sprinkler so Maddie were going to save the situation and got wet. She’d also brought the latest addition to the family, a little cutie pie with the name of Christopher. We all sang happy birthday for her and then served the cake. Put on a movie for the kids so that we actually could finish our cake, thoughts and sentences for a bit. Really hot and cozy day, it officially felt like summer.

On the Friday I was off since my family were going away over the weekend. I decided to sunbath even though I hate it, and I did not put sunscreen on…,ops. I did go in all the time to check how it was looking and I didn’t stay out there that long so I though I was fine. Went inside, 2 hours later my bum felt super hot. Went to check, oh my goodness. I don’t think I’ve ever burned this bad before, might be cause I’ve never sunbathed in string panties before, haha it was bad. Imagine the whitest palest white next to like lobster red but even a shade brighter, insane. I later got to go to another Swedes house to have some tacos with the swedish gals and I needed to stand some part of the eve cause yeah…

Next day it was time to properly celebrate Madeleine again. Her friends had invited us all to a birthday brunch at their place. We had mimosas, bellini and avocado toast. Maddie had two champagne bottles to pop, one she almost shot at us standing behind her, how I don’t know. The second one went to the neighbors and Maria just screamed in a weird whisper “RUN”. They had bought a lot of balloons for her so they sang with helium. They’d got her cupcakes that said Happy birthday Maddie on them, super yummy as well which I’ve found is rare here if you don’t go to like Magnolia bakery. These were from Whole Foods. Honestly I got pretty tipsy on those drinks. It’s really fun to day drink just not that awesome in the long run. Me and Sanna walked back to her place to do our makeup and stuff. We were so tired but also exited for the evening. They came to get us with the car because heels. We later got a pizza for dinner and then the drinking started again. Sanna made a strawberry cake that was actually really good; she put some frosting in it which made it different from just a normal strawberry shortcake, heavenly. I got way to wasted but I also had a really great night. And I hope Madeleine had the best birthday week ever as well. Love U Maddie.

Auntie comes to visit

Hey Hey it’s May. Started it with a visit to the park with everyone’s favorite Maddie. My kids LOVE her and can’t say I don’t. She’s the best with the kids, I don’t understand how she has all that energy but it’s great. We spun the kids on the swings till they were so dizzy they couldn’t walk, they loved it and me and Maddie were laughing our asses off. She said “Emma that’s how I walk every weekend” true true very true, it’s not really that bad though.

My aunt Tyra and her new man Esse came to NYC. They came upstate to visit on the Friday after been in the city a few days, resting their legs and hanging with us. First I got them on the train and went home. Talked and got to know each other. Went to Chipotle, ofc. Even though they had it the day before. Then we drove to get the kids. They immediately liked them both, but especially Esse. He sat in the back with them and I’d wish to keep him there forever cause the kids are them both having fun and keeping there volume down when there’s more people in the car, felt like heaven haha. It was about 20*C outside, like that perfect temperature, neither hot nor cold. We chilled, played soccer, my kiddos were so cozy. WE had dinner with my whole family and then I drove them to the train.

Saturday I went in to the city to meet up with them. It was miserable weather wise, never had that bad weather in there before. I met them downtown to do some shopping. Had some lunch at Pret A Manager, soup cause the rain. We went to Wall St and stopped in at TjMax where I took the opportunity to buy a nice pink MK bag and a pair of shoes by Steve Madden. We went to this place my host mom gave as a tip, The Dead Rabbit. It’s like this really old bar that still serves some drinks in old tea and/or coffee cups like they did when drinking alcohol still was frowned upon. Very special, weird and fun drinks. Walked back to their hotel to hopefully dry up a little, we were all soaked. Put up our bags on the bed to admire them. Oh yes you read that right, plural, BAGSSSSS. My aunt bought two of them this day and one at a previous day, so that three, three bags on one trip, all Micheal Kors. And also a pair of shoes, same brand. They wanted to go look for a bag for him, I stayed in the room to take a little nap. If you get the chance to you take it, right? I woke up and got ready, we had booked a table at a Asian fusion place. Fung Tu, had the best dumplings I had in my life. I took an uber up to Grand Central after. Fell asleep late even though I was super tired.

Sunday came along and it was their last days before leaving for Sweden. We meet on the way up to central park. I already managed to get blisters after walking like 10 St with my new shoes. We walked to the Friends fountain cause think you just have to see it when you’re here. Then I brought them to Urban Space for food and we all had Sushi burritos. I had a salmon one. It was a first and I liked it, will defiantly get one again. We took a cab down to Soho. I got myself a cappuccino and then we went to the bag store they’d been the previous day to buy another for Esse. We walked to their hotel where it was time to say bye. It sucked cause they are both so fun so I wished we’d have more time. Even though I’d only had three days with them it actually felt like a week because that we did so much and talked even more. They got into their Uber and I started walking to closest subway station. I usually try to walk and not take the metro but by know we were down in Chinatown and my blisters were bad. This day had actually been sunny and nice, some clouds but that was it. But after walking a few streets this crazy rainstorm happens, out of nowhere. My umbrella turned inside out and my clothes were soaked in seconds. It was insane but by the time I got to 42nd Bryant Park the sun was our like nothing happened. I got a juice and Joe & The Juice and then made my way home.

Sightseeing & my Second home

Sunday. We got up pretty early (at least for me on a weekend) to take the metro to Brooklyn Bridge. It was so sunny, when we tried to take a pic together we all looked insane cause it was too light so we all were doing weird faces haha. Walked over then down Dumbo to take the obligatory pic with Manhattan Bridge behind us. Me and Norton stopped at a playground right there while mom and Johan went for coffee. Came back with a latte from Brooklyn brewery and a mean walnut brownie. Walked past the carousel, it’s so beautiful with it’s all adorn bits and pieces. We kept walking and all of a sudden when I was trying to see everyone I found Johan standing taking pictures of a couple with a professional camera, they’d even put up a big flash or whatever they’re called. Lucky them he’s a great photographer. Took the metro back and walked up Soho and decided to eat at the Black Tap burger as my host mom gave that as a tip. The burgers were perfection. I had the Californian burger; it was a turkey burger that had avocado and truffle mayo. This place is more known for their crazy shakes, we were all full but mom ofc though we had to get one. It was good but think that if you aren’t American and you want one… don’t eat anything before the shake. We kept walking up Manhattan towards midtown, past Washington Square park, Flatiron building, The Lego Store and then back to the hotel to get our bags. It was time to go upstate to my host family. They had made pasta for us and my kiddos had fun with Norton. Especially S.

They stayed up here from Sunday eve till Tuesday afternoon. My kids loved having them here. Mom danced with A in the kitchen while I was cooking, Johan built houses with the magnets or threw them up in the air with them screaming “more more” “agaiiiiiin”. Monday we went to a mall as the girls were in school. Mom bough a super cute dress at Nordstroms. I drove us to Rye. There we ate at Chipotle as that’s my favorite go to. Got us some coffee and then drove to the shore to walk up and down the pier. Tuesday A was home so we just hangout, played and had a good time. Made some Swedish cinnamon buns, ate some dumplings and went to our favorite park/playground. Then I drove them to the train so they could go into the city again.

On Thursday I got to end early again to go meet my family in the city. Dressed up a little for dinner, went to an Italian place. After dinner we walked down to too Times Square as one has to see it at night, whole other thing then daytime. On the way we walked through Bryant park. Then past Rockefeller center where we parted ways from the boys for a bit. They walked back to sleep so I had some quality time with my mama. I could probably walk an talk for hours with her. But we were tired and it got cold.

Friday was the last day with my family. We had Fika at Pret, took in the sun in Bryant Park. Went into the beautiful library. Just chilled. But then back at the hotel we had to say our byes. I told Norton he did not get to cry, last time he got me heartbroken when we were saying bye. But then there we had mom. And so well yes that didn’t go glitch free haha. She almost got to tears and I’m like screaming MOM DON’T as I’m about to cry as well. I didn’t feel to bad though cause I know I’ll most likely go home in summer.

I’d gotten the morning off so I could stay with my family but I had to work afternoon so I got some lunch at fresh&co and then got on the train. The girls previous au pair was coming to visit so got them all clean, cute and ready to meet her.

I was of course a bit sad seeing my family go home but I was mostly happy about the fact that they came here for a week and that we had all this time together. When people come visit it's always fun to show the city but my favorite part is to show them my home, current life and just enjoy their company. Miss them so. See you soon.

Family arriving 

What a week. Some weeks feels better then others. As an Au pair or parent or anyone working with kids you know that every week and every day has it’s challenges and frustrating moments. Ending a week with a smile on your face is less about being able to meet all their “needs” (I want this and that..) and more about how you handled the fights and what you thought them ; but then of course hugs and kisses helps as well. S had a recycle runway show at school so I made her a dress with red bubble wrap, gold pompoms for her hair and a bag out of the bubble wrap and a blue plastic glass. It actually turned our great. We made Bolognese and danced in the kitchen.

On the Friday however there was an extra special thing happening. I was going into the city after working to meet my mama, her man and my little brother. So exited. I got to finish work a bit earlier so first I went in to have a coffee with an old friend and his girlfriend. It’s funny how one has this people in life that you known forever, almost never meet, don’t know each other all that well but still every time you meet you never stop talking. They are both so lovely. I got pretty late to moms hotel room as I had so much fun talking to them I didn’t want to leave. Well it was not late but maybe 8 o’clock, my brother's 6 and they’ve been up for like 24h so understand they were tired. Finally getting there I felt so content and happy. Felt like it had been forever but also like I’ve never left. My brother Norton was so hyped he couldn’t sleep for 2 hours.

Next day, Saturday, we had breakfast at the hotel. Just for the record the breakfast at American hotels (that aren’t like insanely fancy) mostly sucks. Only sweet things and the only fresh stuff is like an apple or something. We walked up to Central Park, took photos of the cherry blossoms and listed to the saxophone. People where doing Yoga next to the Friends fountain and Norton though it was super weird. I just realized I don’t now what that fountains actually called. Stopped to watch the man making the big bubbles, Norton was astonished. We walked through the park all the way up to the Natural history museum. Had some lamb gyro before going in. Walked through almost everything in there it felt like. If you come here for vacay with kids I understand why you’d go here but if you’re my age I wouldn’t unless you’re a history buff ofc. There’s some exhibits I probably would’ve liked if I weren’t so tired of all the walking, couldn’t really take any of it in. On the way back down we stopped at this café for some well needed energy refill and also cause the rain was pouring down. I think spring is the best time to come here but you need to know New York weather do not make sense and can change within seconds. This place we stepped into was called Zuckers, ate the best glazed donut ever. We ate at a Brazilian place for dinner and the food was amazing, I had some lovely fish. Norton loved this place mostly cause they had a paper tablecloth so he could draw on it. On the way home we got coffee at Pret. Then we all gladly fell asleep.

Zoo & The City

April just flew by, it went so fast. We started it with a visit to the Zoo. S was off from pre-k since the teachers had a study day, so we dropped of A and the went home to wait for the Zoo to open. We decided to go to Starbuck, because why not make a day of it. I had a strong latte and she had a hot chocolate. We sat outside; it was still pretty chilly but still nice in the sun. Then we were off to Bronx Zoo. S walked about 14 km this day between 11-13 o’clock, that’s impressive for a 4 year old. She was whining the last 20 min but she walked the whole zoo in one day (in a couple of hours) so those 20 minutes was understandable, I felt the same. She almost fell asleep in the car and we got A an hour too early cause I was too tired to understand what time it was.

Agnes came here for a weekend. And omg she drove me into the ground. Don’t get me wrong, I had lots of fun, I was just so tired afterwards I would’ve needed another weekend right after to rest up. She came on the Friday. I baked a cake as a proper welcome, this was the last time we’d see each other till I come home to Sweden. I bough balloons for her too cause if you remember when I was going up to Boston I bought one for her but it flew away, so this time I got her two. A silver A like last time and also a cute sun. We went to the store to get chips & guacamole and mojito mix. Maddie joined us. I had the little girls clothes that needed folding so they both helped me while drinking some prosecco and singing to the music streaming out of the speaker. I laughed at us cause that moment really made me feel old, grown up and like a mom, hanging with my friends ready to go out but first let’s hang out in sweat pants and do the washes. Maddie wasn’t feeling to well so she just drove us there and then went home. We meet Sanna there and had a blast. There were almost no people out since it was Friday so we had the whole dance floor to ourselves and really did use it. Had pizza per usual and then went home where Agnes had some of the cake.

Next day oh my goodness. So this was Agnes last weekend in NYC before going back to Sweden so we had to make the most of the day, hangover and all. Luckily we bought some smoothie drinks the day before so we didn’t need to spend time on breakfast in the morning, only to get ready and try to look alive. We’d just got on the train when she says “But Emma let’s go our tonight too right?”. I’m like just shut up pls. In the city you noticed that spring had come cause in 5 min we ran into 3 different commercial shoots. The tulips where planted everywhere and the sun was out. We had planned to walk to Fika to have meatballs. I haven’t been there since cause I’m not happy with that company. I love their food but when you walk hangover in the sun for 30 min after an hour train for Swedish meatballs and then you get there and they don’t serve it anymore you get pissed. We called around to all locations and they just kept referring us to the next one, turned out they stopped serving them, like Whaaaaaat. They don’t serve food at every location, and even there it’s just between certain times, but you can’t find on their website which locations and what times, great customer service guys. Oh well, we gave up on meatballs and went to Pret A Manager to meet up with Sanna and Maddie instead. Next we walked up to Central Park as somehow the previous 3 times Agnes been here she never gone there. There were brides taking photos everywhere. We said bye to our other gals after a few hours in the park and went to Joe & The Juice for an energy refill. Took a quick look in the beautiful New York library and then the subway to the start of the highline. Walked all the way up, stopped at Fresh&Co for a salad and then took the train home after a long day just to begin the night. We used up one of the balloons and had a blast with the helium. The Ubers was shitty expensive, Maddie wasn’t drinking this weekend so as the superstar friend she is she and Sanna picked us up even though that’s a massive detour. Had a great night and after a day walking more then 25k and then dancing in heels me and my dead feet went to bed.

Best weekend ever, I already miss her!

Speed & catch up

Dude am I after or what!? I haven't even got to writing about the new year yet so let's speed up and catch up.

After christmas we went to Stockholm for two days. We stayed in this really awesome hotel with the nicest room and best breakfast. I went to meet my cousins and have dinner with my auntie. My host family went home a few hours before me so I checked out and then went for a stroll before going to the airport. I came home to New York the night before new yrs, so at new years eve I fell asleep by 10pm.

Me and Maddie took a course in defensive driving to be able to take the NY drivers license. Probably one of the most boring things I have done in my life, luckily she did it with me. And also we got nuggets and coffee in the break which made it a bit more worth it.

I had my fair share of snow storm. The NY weather is crazier then anything else. The beginning of February we had 18*c and then there was a snow storm. Last one was in the end of March and in between it could be raining, hot, the ups and down were insane. To begin with I hated the snow. I'm not used to being out and having fun in it anymore. Also here when it snows it comes a lot at ones, they don't have the tiers for it and they are slow at clearing the roads. But then I actually went out with the kids, and we kept going out every day as long as the snow stayed. I loved it, the fresh crisp air, the fun.

To stay in this country with a J-1 visa you have to take classes worth up to 6 credits for you visa. I took two classes at Purchase Collage. One was about Consumer psychology which didn't intrigue me that much as I felt we already knew all this from High school. However the other one, Personal branding; Polished & Professional was amazing. It's interesting to put together and go into the subjects that makes up for how we are perceived by others and how it will make them react to us. So even if taking classes for credits is a requirement for the Visa a lot of Au pairs skip this part even though it's a small risk you won't get the certificate for the year you spent as an au pair. I however want to advocate for doing it properly. If your gonna be here a year or more you might as well take the advantage of the opportunity to learn and get more experience.

What else? Well one does go out occasionally go out. And mostly we have a blast. The amount of drunken pizza slices we’ve had. Madde and Sanna, the dream team, always, but especially when drinking alcohol. I think it’s healthy to go out, I mean drinks and pizza is not the best for your body but when you have this job you need to let go and enjoy not being responsible for others for a moment. It’s different to go our here compared to Sweden. Drinks are not as fun here, for some reason they want them to actually taste of alcohol, instead of the drinks or ciders we have at home which does the job but tastes amazing. When I go out I do so to get drunk and DANCE. But it’s impossible not to notice the difference between guys here and at home. At home they dress better, sometimes I think their joking when they show up here, are they seriously trying to look good, cause they are not understanding how to do that. They come there in a flannel shirt with a NorthFace vest over it or a grandpa shirt (like those our dads doesn’t even wear anymore, blue and white, small squares) with too wide jeans, like not even almost formfitting, more the opposite. I don’t know but it disturbs me so much. But then on the other hand they behave better (that's probably not at all the right words, but they overall understand something swedes doesn't tend to). They might be as forward, well might even be more so since they tend to talk, but if you show you aren’t interested they get the hit and they don’t waste their time. Unlike at home when they follow you like a stray puppy and don’t understand the simplest hints or even words. Oh well going out will always be as fun as long as I have my awesome friends with me. Tipping tables, spilling drinks, breaking shoes, paying 15$ for photo both pics, dancing like insane people, eating pizza with your eyes closed, laughing till tears and making memories (if you haven’t had to much tequila will say).

Going to the City is not boring either. Going through the parks sipping on a latte. Having Chipotle is the go too. Loooove to eat there. We’ve been doing tourist thing too, walking through all parks, looking up buildings and shopping. What I’ll miss when I go home is VS, UO, Chipotle and my beloved Sephora.

My kiddos, we had some amazing times. Me and A for instance had a picnic on the Rye pier. Every Thursday we go to Starbucks before going to her gym. They had a multi cultural day, I brought meatballs and lingberry jam, all the food there was amazing. The snow was a blast, we made a snow dog and a snowman. Sledding and rolling down the hill. We’ve been playing a lot of soccer and S is learning how o kick it properly. I’ve brought dancing into their lives and after eating we sometimes dance for up to an hour. I’m so happy to have them in my lives, gosh how much my heart will ace when I’m to leave.

Christmas

24/12-16

It’s Christmas. Well Christmas eve but that’s when we celebrate it in Sweden. Woke up when my host mom walked into our room with her ugly Christmas shirt, a Christmas tree that lit up. It made me wake up with a smile. We together went down to the amazing breakfast buffet. Got dressed for the slopes and went skiing. First with the family and then by myself. I’m not a big fan of downhill skiing in itself, the boots hurt, I don’t have phobias but not the biggest fan of heights and speed. But the nature I do love. It was a perfect sunny day. Looking down the mountain, seeing the frozen lake and the frosted pine trees. I stayed out for only two hours, then my calf’s where cramping and I went back home. I was off so I went to the sauna. Took a long shower, everyone else where with their families so I had the whole sauna to myself. Did my makeup for as long as I wanted and walked up in my robe to the room. It was time to watch Donald Duck as one does on Christmas Eve. The brother and his wife brought homemade glögg. It was so strong, haha it had a nice taste but so strong it could’ve been used for shots. Then it was time for Santa. The parents had left presents at the front desk. This Santa came in through the lobby entre which was completely filled with guests. He had the best outfit, a beautiful reindeer coat. Both my kids got a Woody each. A freaked out at first though, she doesn’t really like Santas or people that are dressed up for something (Halloween wasn’t easy), but after a freak out she actually took the present from him by herself.

The Christmas dinner buffet was amazing. I couldn't fit all that I wanted on one plate, gosh did my tummy double in size. We took a break from eating before dessert, so I went to call dad. We then had coffee and dessert, went up to the others room, had wine & chocolate and watched a movie. After a while I went to talk to mom an the rest. I hanged out in the lower level of the hotel away from all the people, cause even if it been a great Christmas I needed some quite time before the night I have in front of me. Sleeping in the same room as 3 kids when one of them is sick at that, I'll at most get three hours in a row before waking up. Love this hotel and place but I so look forward to my quite room and comfy big bed in NY.

Bye 

21/12-16

Last day at home. Today I went shopping with my uncle. We found glasses for him and I stocked up on black jeans. After that we went to nana and grandpas house. It was so fun to see them. My nana is sick, cancer, so being away from them sucks even more then it would otherwise. I were so happy to see them, they’re the cutest humans on earth. Always there for me. I know nana doesn’t really want anyone to see her when she’s sick, but if anyone is stubborn she is so she won't give up in the first place which is very soothing for me. We had coffee and Reese buttercups as I brought some. We played with snapchat filters and the selfie-stick my uncle gave me for x-mas earlier. Using technology with old people is more fun then to do it with kids, had a blast. My uncle drove me home. It was finally time to open presents. I got my moms boyfriend socks (cause for some reason men always wants socks, no matter age. If they don’t want something special, get em’ socks, preferably easy matching ones), my mom got a VS pajamas with slippers, Norton got Tommy Hilfiger shirt and a t-shirt. I got to put my brother to bed, it’s so cozy always, which meant I feel asleep. Mom came up and was like “Hey, Hi, Hello, are you coming? We’re having an evening snack! Wake up, I wanna hang out. Come on”. I stumbled up and went downstairs. Mom had put out bread, crackers, lot of cheese. She popped opened some bubbly as she wanted to do so since I got there but we both been sick. Prosecco, cheese and conversations with mom, can’t get a better last night at home.

22/12-16

I hate hate hate saying bye. It’s usually fine as long as the person your saying bye to isn’t your 6 yr old brother. He started crying like crazy when he had to say bye and go to school, I really tried not to start crying as well but it was impossible. I think my heart never hurt that much ever. Mom helped me to and on to the train, I had so many bags. Going by train was more fun that I could’ve though, seeing a snow covered Sweden on a sunny day. Eating Swedish candy and just enjoying the view, passing by the lakes and mountains. I stopped in Åre, the best city for winter activities in Sweden. I had to wait sometimes for a taxi but the weather was still pretty lovely so I was fine. We went all the way up the mountain to the Copperhill hotel. My whole host family was already there, super jetlagged. My host dads brother with family and his parents had come up to from Gothenburg. We had a small suite or whatever you would call it. 3 bdrms, 2 bthrms and a living room/kitchen area. I’m sleeping with the kids, top level in one of the bunk beds. It’s been along day and the kids are horribly tired and so am I. Happy to got to bed early.

Tuesday

20/12-16

23.00 Well that sucked there for a while. I was only sick Saturday night but of course I had to wait my 48 h to not give my bug to the others, which meant I lost two days of my week. Not being able to be with my friends or eat yummy food as I planned. The upside was that I had to be home with my family. Today, Tuesday, I finally could have some fun with my friends. It’s almost time to leave so today I planned to meet the three of my closest friends that still lives in my home town atm. I walked out with mom this morning while it was still dark, cause this is Sweden and it’s dark all morning. The first thing I did was to realize I didn’t know the right address to Hilda where I was about to have breakfast and I was about to lose my internet since I had my American phone. So in my panic to find it before the wi-fi was lost I completely lost focus of everything else, walked straight into a pile of snow and fell over straight down like a domino. Omg did I get pissed, and it hurt too at that. Mom laughed for three blocks down. After a while I kind of had to laugh as well even though I still were a pissed off and tired non-morning person. Oh well I finally got to Hilda and we had a very cozy breakfast, catching up and watching the sunrise making a pink sky. Before lunchtime we walked up the hills to my street as she was having lunch with my neighbor, her previous host mom. I had some pasta and salmon sauce. I missed fish sooooo much. I put up the Christmas tree for my brother and we decorated it together. Later he made a show for me, he’s the cutest. Before dinnertime I walked into town and met up with Olivia. We had dinner at her house. We had pasta and salmon, however even if it doesn’t sound like it it was very different from previous meal. We had tee and nobles, watched tv and cozied up with the worlds cutest cat in the sofa. I then walked to Espresso house to have a coffee with Freya. I got to open birthday and Christmas gift. Such a lovely day with the best of people. A long day but so happy I had time to spend some time with them. So tired now. One more day and then I’m going up North to work.

Just No.

17/12-16

Well, that day kind of sucked. Cried some but didn't even have the energy. To begin with it was good. We had fika in the town, very cozy. Me and my brother sang christmas songs. My lovely friend Freya was a bit sad this day so she called me and we talked. We decided to pick her up so mommy drove there. Finally at home we just chilled as we both were pretty tired from previous night before applying make up. I'd planned this evening for weeks, moths. We got fixed, I started to feel sick, but I was going to have fun. We were going to a restaurant and then to a party. However I just made it to the restaurant to meet my friends. I felt so bad cause the place we ate served only burgers and lots of beer. Everything smelled so much and after one bite of my burger and felling like I was dying just by the smell. After like 20-30 min I just gave up. Mom got me and immediately when I got home my tummy turned inside out. What a weekend, my only one home in a whole year. Just my luck. My little brother got it as well. I was practically good on the Sunday but I was very tired and had to wait out my 48 h. It sucked, but at least I got to have the Friday. At also I didn't have to pay for my burger as Freya convinced the waiter. Haha better luck next time...
