Ok, I’ll be honest. It suddenly hit me. All the changes. And I’ve been hiding. The last three weeks have passed me by in a haze. Packing up and moving to Norway. Getting here. Having our stuff arrive, finally. Filling the apartment with boxes we can’t even unpack because we don’t have space. The boys starting kindergarten in a new country. Kristinn being away all day at school. No friends or family close by. It may sound a bit dramatic but it has been a lot to process and my emotions have been up and down and all over the place. I miss my little gang when they are away all day. They are my whole world.
I am out of the haze now. I try to pay special attention to the good things, the little things, the things that make me happy every day. I’m adjusting. And on this beautiful rainy sunny second last day of August, I’m going to challenge myself to write a post every day for a month. They don’t have to be long. Some days will probably just be one sentence. But I need it.
My school started again this week and my little Lilja Kristín is starting kindergarten tomorrow. That wasn’t the plan but the school offered her a place two days a week and we decided to try it. She loves playing with other children. Plus it gives me more time to study on the days she’s having fun at barnehagen. I hope it goes well and that she’s ready for it. The boys didn’t start this early, Erik Ómar was three and Aron Ívar was two. So yes, it’s a bit scary thinking about my little girl already going to kindergarten but it’s only two days a week. And she’s going to have so much fun.
