Friday - Had a lunch date with my friend Steffi. Went shopping the last things before my visit to Sweden and then I went to a theater with my host family. We went downtown to see Heathers which was really good! After the show me and some friends went downtown for party.

Saturday - Went downtown to go shopping with a friend. Think I had the best pizzaslice I ever had in my life, or I was just really hungry cause I had lunch at 4 pm haha. Maja came over during the night cause I was babysitting. A good friend of us is leaving Chicago in April so she had a goodbye party on the night. Guess I am the best nanny ever cause after our dinner at the Walker Bros I took the kids with me to the goodbye party.

Sunday - Came home from Maja early in the morning cause I was going to see a lacrosse game at Northwestern with one of my kids. Was first time I saw a lacrosse game at a college school. It was fun but I really don't understand the game. I had a manicure and pedicure after the lacrosse game before my trip to Sweden. It starting to be a tradition to fix my nails before I'm going on trips, and I like it ;-) Having dinner within some hour and then I will probably go and watch a movie with friends.

I'm really happy that the weather is getting better! Still have to wear a jacket tho, otherwise I would probably get a cold. Was around 60'F during the day and it was perfect for go to the beach and have a picknick, which I did today.

Decides the picknick I had today I have been doing a lot of "have to do" things, which I find boring. I have been using the insurance twice here in America and it's a lot of paperwork to do. I really wish I would have been good all year without having to see a doctor. I guess you all have heard about the differences between the health care in America and Sweden. The rumors are true, the health care is really really expensive and you really really need a good insurance because the bills are so ridiculous expensive. I can tell you that the first bill I got because I injured my knee was on 1200 dollar (10 000 Swedish Krona), and, the worst thing is that I haven't even got the bill for the MRI or for my third visit yet. I just have to say that the Swedish health care is so much easier because everything is in the same system and it's almost free (I know, we pay taxes). 
Well, just hope I will stay good for the rest of my time here! And I will!!! :-)

Saturday was a fun day and I liked Saint Patrick's Day. Unfortunately I was really really clumsy and lost my phone. This is very typical of me. Seven good months together with my phone and I think that was the record.
It's only nine days now until I fly home for see family and friends for some days, can't wait to see everyone!

February and March have been slow for me cause I was sick for a whole week, jumping on crutches for two weeks and now I lost my phone. The good news was that my MRI showed that I just had a grade 2 sprain of the LCL and a bone contusion of my femur and tibia. I will start rehabilitation after my visit in Sweden and hopefully I can start play soccer again within 3-7 weeks.

See you soon Sweden!

Decided spontaneous to go to Milwaukee in Wisconsin to watch my first basketball game in NBA. It was a lot of fun! Great game and Oklahoma City won.

I have been out a lot more the past couple of days but I have still been in bed a lot. I saw "How to be single" on the cinema with a friend and have to say it was really good! Rebel Wilson was so funny in the movie!
I was also seeing a friend from home this week. His college team played less than an hour from me. I went to some parties on Friday night together with some friends. I was mostly sitting down cause I had the crutches with me and I'm still in pain, haha.
I was babysitting yesterday night and today I'm going to hangout with friends. Hope you had a great weekend!

I'm excited for this upcoming week. I have two appointments with the Doctor so after Thursday I will know what's wrong with my knee. On Saturday we will celebrate Saint Patrick's Day and my host kid's birthday. Just hope I can go downtown without crutches on Saturday. :-)

​Four days of rest - six more to go, at least. I'm getting crazy about my knee.I just want to be able to walk but I still have to use crutches. The times I actually go out the door, takes me forever which annoying me and people gets mad at me for being so slow, haha. I had some friends over yesterday and we watched the Oscars together which made me happier. One of them actually brought his Nintendo, the old one with Mario Kart and that game is still so much fun!! I was really happy yesterday to see that both Alicia Vikander and Leonardo DiCaprio got an Oscar! 
Going to bed now and hope waking up with more motivation to do stuff and a not swollen knee. I have some things planned this week but it's hard to do something that's not involve a lot of walking :-) 


Fyra dagars vila klart - minst sex dagar till. Blir galen när vi pratar om mitt knä. Jag vill kunna gå igen utan att behöva använda mig av kryckor när jag går. De gånger jag faktiskt går utan för dörren gör mig irriterad eftersom det tar mig en evighet att gå samt alla blir så arga på mig pga att jag går så sakta. Jag hade några kompisar över igårkväll och vi tittade på Oscars vilket gjorde mig gladare. En av mina kompisar tog med sig hans Nintendo, det gamla med Mario Kart. Tycker att det spelet fortfarande är superroligt! Jag var glad att se igår att både Alicia Vikander och Leonardo DiCaprio fick varsin Oscar! 
Ska sova nu och hoppas att vakna upp med mer motivation till att göra saker samt ett icke svullet knä. Har några saker planerade denna vecka men det är svårt att göra något som inte innebär mycket gående. :-)

My bad update on the blog has an explanation, last week I was playing soccer and injured my knee. I saw an orthopedic and found out that my outer ligament is injured. I haven't been doing so much since then cause I can't walk without crutches, haha. 2 weeks with just rest and after that I can hopefully start my rehab. I hope I will be able to walk soon, our house has a lot of stairs so it takes me an eternity to walk somewhere in the house.

Anledningen till varför jag har uppdaterat så dåligt har en förklaring. Förra veckan spelade jag fotboll och skadade mitt knä. Jag såg en sjukgymnast/doktor och fick veta att mitt yttre ledband är skadat. Har inte gjort så mycket sedan skadan eftersom jag inte kan gå utan kryckor, haha. 2 veckors vila och sen hoppas jag att jag kan starta med rehab. Jag hoppas att jag kan gå snart utan kryckor, vårt hus har många trappsteg så det tar mig en evighet att ta mig runt i huset.
