Lifecruisers Tackle Top

A lot of cackle and then life happened to step in between… Pictures comes in the end of the post.

Searching for a caring Doctor: Don’t kick me! I haven’t done enough since last time, but I do have valid excuses. We had to fix certain things to our home, then my sister went ill, which besides helping her also meant I had to visit my Mom extra. And tonight I slept bad because my best friend Miss Ass. Lifecruiser is ill too and went to hospital again. This have taken all my energy.

My stomach problems: I’m a bit better. I don’t know why for certain though. Remember that I was getting bacteria capsules to improve my immune defense? I’m eating the capsules and they seems to work so far, we’ll see after a while since I’m not really on terms with Lactose and even these capsules seem to have a little lactose in it. (It’s Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium animalis, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus).

Contact my doctor to get copies of my journals? I didn’t do it. I came to think about that I’ve an appointment the 13th-14th of February with a pain management doc, so it’s better to wait after that visit before I demand my journals, so I get a copy of that statement of their too. Great way to avoid it huh? *lol*

Move our flesh: We were in strong need of some exercise, but how easy is that with my back and this cold weather? It’s not so healthy for me to be out in the cold even though I put on enough clothes for Antarctis… So, what to do?

Home Make Overs: We were also in big need of new curtains, both in the bedroom and kitchen, so why not get exercise through shopping? But it turned out to be a very difficult task. Phew! You see, there is mostly sixty and seventy patterns and totally wrong colors for our taste.

Then I even remembered that I since a very very long time have needed a new office chair for my poor back. And butt, because that old chair were like sitting on a wooden bench… It’s very important to sit right, right? *lol*

Keep in mind here, that we’re living compact living and we don’t know for how long we’ll stay here, we want to move, so it has to be cheap things in case of that we need to get rid off them later.

If anyone had said to me that I would have these colors in my home, I wouldn’t have believed them. Not black at least. But sometimes you just have to go with what the sales in the stores have to offer right then…

Lifecruisers new curtains and chairs
It’s actually 6 curtains, 4 kind of bamboo brownish-red and the 2 Japanese (?) ones. It fitted the black chairs (from IKEA :-) too.

Lifecruisers new curtains and chairs
The bedspread which we got recently, in a sale that too. It matches the curtains very well. Mr Lifecruiser has won the animals for me at the amusement park. And yes, we sleep in this 90 cm (35 inches) bed both of us and we love it and long for it when we’re away! We fit each other like puzzle pieces ;-) And yes, the zebra is hugging the Panda ;-)

Lifecruisers old chairs
Our old chairs together with a bag with crap from the package with the new ones. The right one was mine. We’re going out to dump them right after writing this…

Lifecruisers old photos of young Mr Lifecruiser
This is old photos of Mr Lifecruiser taken by a professional photographer at his hairdresser when he was young. His hairdresser wanted him as a model, so they were even put out in the window. This wall was totally empty before that, so it’s an improvement to have put up them there finally.

Oh, and if you read the post below this, there is some tackles there too :-)

Reminder rest Tit’s:

1. Get copies of my medical journals
2. Kick my ass to find a new doctor

    Your bed is a torture instrument ! We could never sleep in there, at least not now anymore. Mr. Gattino sleeps like a windmill, turns around by throwing himself to the ceiling and then lands on the bed, sometimes he kicks in the chair besides his bed, because he dreams that somebody is attacking him and talks with his hands (don’t forget he is Italian) even when he sleeps. All these movements are accompanied by high volume sawing so that all the woods in the neigborhood have disappeared. In order to stay alive for a few more years, I moved OUT ! But I remember the time when we lived in our appartment in Brussels, we slept in a one person bed i.e. 80 cm width !

    Lifecruiser: No, not torture when it’s we that sleeps there, then it’s a love instrument ;-) But I recognize that behaviour of Mr Gattino on Mr Lifecruiser sometimes when we’re out travelling and he has nightmares at the night – like when we’ve been on too high mountains or something… *lol*

    And about that 80 cm width: we sleeps like that in the summer at Fårö even though we have two 80 cm beds we still sleeps in one!!! That is almost too small, i have to admit that, but we still do it :-)

    Impressive. I wish I had the slightest clue how one goes about “decorating”.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. I’m sure that you are, you just don’t recognize it :-)

    Jenn said:

    WOW your room looks great – though I agree I am single, though co sleep with my 3 year old – we could never sleep there either LOL – good for you though!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks. Well, maybe we’re more still and quiet than a 3 years old… *s* And the fact is that when somebody of us turns around, the other seems to follow after even in the sleep. We’re amazed by it ourselves actually. I would never have thought that we could do it…. It’s a wonder.

    Jenny-up the hill said:

    I’m going to have to disagree with the others…I think the bed is a perfect size! My husband and I sleep in a small bed and for some reason, it drives the rest of my family crazy! In fact, for Christmas, we received bed sheets for a bed one size bigger than we have…as a subtle hint! lol!! We love our bed and like you two, we just fit!!

    Lifecruiser: Finally one that agree :-) Thank you! Yes, isn’t it just wonderful to keep warm like this? *lol*

    Debbie said:

    Wow those are some dark curtains! Bet they help keep the light out for darker sleeping! hubby and I prefer a small sized bed to a big one! Though I have to admit there are times when it is too small! Like when all 3 cats are cold and want to sleep with us, and of course they choose my side to sleep on!

    Just keep on doing as you are and things will fit together as they should! I hope your sister and Miss A L are getting better. And hug your mom for me!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, you got it right there, it helps keep the light out and not disturbing my computer display… Oh, yes, I remember how it is to have pets in the bed… *S*

    The sis and Miss Ass is holding in, but not well yet. My Mom on the other hand has been unusually well during the circumstances, for the moment, thankfully!

    Irish Church Lady said:

    Like your new drapes and chair. They all look good together.

    At least you get to cross something off your list!!!

    Lifecruiser: Thanks ICL. Yes, I suppose I have to see it that way… But still: shame on me ;-)

    that frolicsome kid said:

    Hey, the room looks great! I love it (except for the cramped bed)! How on earth do you and your husband fit in there? :shock: I don’t think I can fit myself in there LOL! :lol:

    Yes, a good chair is important. :wink: :wink:

    Hope your sister and Miss Ass. get well soon! :grin:

    Lifecruiser: Thanks x 100! Ha ha, maybe we are too tiny? Or laying like a glue on each other? *lol*

    Janice (5 Minutes for Mom) said:

    okay – i can NOT get over the fact that you sleep in that tiny bed together!!! OH MY WORD! We have a queen bed and it is.not.big.enough. Good grief – that is amazing!

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I know, I’m hardly beleive it myself sometimes ;-) Especially when we’re away and sleeping in a even smaller bed than that!!!! But then it starts to be too small and one have to have the knees outside the bed… *giggles*
