Other than my weekly appointment and a trip to the doctors office (everything is fine, I just needed a note from my doctor), this week hasn’t been the most eventful week. But that is fine, the week was so much better than the two previous ones. I still struggle a little bit with anxiety and the problem with my chest, but thankfully it is a lot better.

20170625_173847

I’m going on a family trip with my BF’s family to Croatia in 2 weeks. I have been preparing for the trip this week. On Tuesday I dragged my brother to the mall to buy things that I need for the trip. This might be a bit TMI but I bought things to shave my legs. I have sensitive skin so I usually get itchy and sore from regular razor. Since I’m chronicle ill and don’t have that much hair on my legs, I usually don’t bother with shaving, but I want to look nice now that it is summer. I bought shaving cream and razor for sensitive skin and a cream to put on afterwards, and it has really helped. Now I don’t dread shaving my legs. Ok enough with talk about shaving, no one cares Rakel. I also bought some other things, a new shorts, t-shirt, BB-cream, aloe vera gel, toilet bag and a box with some pore strips.

The only thing that is left now is to buy a bikini. I hope I find a cute one, that is comfortable and hold the girls in place. I’m dreading it, but I need a bikini for my vacation.

Pic of me and my brother trying out the pore strips, I didn’t really work. Robert don’t look amused, haha. 

20170625_174232

Random little thing. I never eat fast food, but when I heard that McD was coming out with sweet potato fries, I had to try them out. They tasted ok, but homemade are so much better. 

All in all this has been an ok week. I’m really happy that things are getting better. For a while there I thought I had to cancel my trip.

I wish you all a great week!

Tell me about your week, what have you been up to?

20170618_182015

If you regularly follow my blog you know that last week wasn’t the best week for me. I don’t want to talk too much about it because I hate to be negative. Thankfully this week was better. I still feel anxiety from last week, but that is just how it is.

Last week I briefly mentioned that I was going to do something special this week. It is pretty special to say it mildly. Don’t think of me like a weirdo, but me and my mom choose to book a reading from a psychic. Someone we know recommended her to us, and we thought it would be fun to try it out. It was a new and very interesting experience for me. I was skeptical going in, but what she told me was good so I have to believe in it. She told me a lot of interesting things, a lot about my personality and what I can do to have a better life.

Other than the psychic lady and my weekly appointment I have spent my time at home. After last week, it is important that I take it easy.

20170618_181912

The weather has been beautiful here in Norway, really warm and sunny. I have spent a lot of my time on the porch tanning. I probably scares away the neighbors with my fat white ass, haha. It has been so nice relaxing, reading a book and writing outside. I’m actually doing it right now while I write this post. To my surprise I’m starting to get a small tan. I burn easily and get sun allergies if I’m not careful with sunscreen.

20170615_165226

On Friday it sadly was my assistants last day working for me. I have a personal assistant helping me with things that I’m not able to do myself because of my illness. She has been with me for 2 years. The time really went fast, but also slow. Weird how time can feel, like it happened yesterday, but also a lifetime ago at the same time.

This week has been much better than last week, and I hope next week will be even better. I have to fix a lot of things before my Croatia trip that’s only in a few weeks. I’m really nervous but determined to go. One thing I have to buy is a new bikini, and I don’t look forward to trying them on in the store. I hope I find a cute one that fits me well.

I wish you all a great week!

Tell me about your week, what have you been up to?

This week hasn’t been the best to say it mildly. After a month of doing a lot of fun things, I crashed. So yeah, I haven’t done much other than staying in bed all week. My only venture out was to the doctors and to my weekly appointment on Wednesdays. Things are slowly getting better, thankfully, but with being ill my anxiety went from 3 to 10 and I feel that it is hindering me a lot.

Unfortunately I don’t have much to say this time. I hope next week will be better. I have one thing on my plan that I am looking forward to. That will be for next weeks post.

Friday: Update: I’m Back, 1 Year Blogoversary, Norway Trip, Celebrating 17th of May

-DIARY.png

Last weekend my dad’s brewery hosted a two day beer festival. Breweries from all over the world was there to promote their beer, and a lot of people came to drink and have a fun time. In my opinion it was a big success. I attended the festival both days. It was so much fun, even though I don’t drink. It was also very exhausting and I payed for it this week.

20170604_183719IMG_20170527_221217_595Day one my BF was there drinking with some friends. It was the first time I met some of them and they were some really nice guys. The second day my BF had to work at the festival, so I was with my family. Two of my uncles, my aunt and my cousin, and some of my uncle’s friends came from far away to attend the festival. I sat with the guys the whole day. They were funny, and one of them danced really crazy in front of everybody when the band was playing, haha. His moves was out of this world. I want to post a video, but I don’t think I can do that.
Snapchat-1110527792

The rest of the weekdays I didn’t do anything special. I have started writing for my blog again after a month’s pause. It is good to finally be back again.

I have struggled with stomach ache and I have been nauseous almost every day lately. Maybe I’m pregnant! Haha no that was a joke, I’m not pregnant. I don’t know what to do about it though, I think it might be stress related.

My BF’s birthday was on Tuesday. Happy birthday <3. Unfortunately my stomach was really bad that day so all I manage to do was to force myself to bake him a cake. So all we did that day was to order pizza and eat cake, and watched Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones is really good, why haven’t we watched it sooner?

Parenthood, the new Sims 4 game pack, came out the same day as his birthday. I have been playing it all week. The pack is fun and adds a lot of gameplay and interactions to the game.

Downloaded a house on the gallery for my family that has 2 toddlers and a baby. They moved from San Myshuno into this old Victorian house. The interior is changed, but not 100% finished because they don’t have anymore money.

Lately I have bought a lot of new clothes and things. 3 new dresses, tops, a skirt and a shirt ++, and some new makeup. I’m really happy with my purchases, especially the dresses. I found a style of dresses that I really like. One thing that is kind of funny is that almost all of the clothes I have bought lately are black. I will always be the emo kid at heart, haha. I also bought the new special editions of the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone book, in the Ravenclaw style. They are so beautiful, I want them all.

On Saturday I went out to a concert. It was one of my best friend’s band. The band is called Konger og Keisere, and they play Norwegian rock. They have just released their new EP LIV. Go check them out HERE. I had a blast at the concert.

Naturally I’m tired after the weekend and the concert. I’m so blessed that  I have been able to do so many fun thing lately. I couldn’t dream of doing this last year, and I’m really happy that my health is going in the right direction.

-DIARY.png

20170421_224104

Monday: Today was the last day of Easter, and Emil’s mother invited us to a Easter dinner at her place. It was my mother in law, Emil’s brother and his girlfriend and their child, Emil’s sister and her boyfriend, and of course Emil and I. After dinner we played a Zelda version of monopoly. Sadly we didn’t manage to finish the game before the brothers needed to leave, so we don’t know who won. Emil and I was on the same team and we got both of the last and most expensive places, so I like to think that we had won if we kept on playing. After the dinner we went to the apartment. It is my last day here 😦 I read for a few hours in The Final Empire, and I’m almost done with it. I really love the book.

Tuesday: Right after I woke up my mom came and got me. Since yesterday was the last day of Easter, Emil is back to work and I don’t want to be alone in the apartment all day. At home I ate breakfast and went to my room to rest. After a few hours we went to my weekly Tuesday appointment. I was really tired the whole day, so I didn’t do much other than resting. I read a little bit in my Tome Topple books and watch YT.

Wednesday: The first thing I did this morning was to weigh myself. I’m trying to lose some weight, and I like to weigh myself every Tuesday/Wednesday. I was 100% sure that I had gained some weight back after eating a lot of bad food this Easter. To my surprise I had lost 400g, and I’m now under 80kg! YAY! I have been working on a new blog design for the blog today. I think it is really fun to do, so the hours just flew by. In the evening around 9 I felt a bit sluggish from sitting in front of the PC all day, so mom and I went for a walk. Before bed I read and finished The Final Empire, and I absolutely loved it. It was an excellent story, with a great world building and characters that I really liked. I also read in Blankets.

Trying out a new Snapchat filter

Thursday: Today was very similar to the day before. I worked on the blog design for hours today too, and I’m almost done with it. I’m not 100% sure if I’m loving it, so can you take a look at my test blog and give me some constructive thoughts? MiRakelGames.wordpress.com . I have been in a bit of a blogging slump lately, so hopefully a new design would spark the interest again. I really want to write all of the reviews that I have notes on. Besides working on the blog design, I have tidied and organised some of my clothing drawers. I’m getting rid of half of my clothes, and it feels really nice to have less stuff. I have also gone for a walk today too.

This is the last day of the Tome Topple readathon, so before bed I finished all of my books. I finished Blankets, my pick for the graphic novel challenge. I liked it, the story was very interesting and raw, and the drawings was good. I also finished The Book thief. Read my Tome Topple Wrap Up HERE!

New Blog design

Friday: Today I wanted to go to a Library book sale in Oslo, but one person couldn’t go so we are postponing it to tomorrow. The only things I have done today is to write and post the Tome Topple readathon wrap up, watch YT and taken a bath. I started the book Station Eleven. I’m really hyped for it because I have been wanting to read it since it came out in 2014.

Saturday: Today my parents, Emil and I went to the book sale in Oslo that I wanted to go to yesterday. It was OK. I didn’t find that many books, and none that I really wanted. I found a book called Rakels bok (Rakel’s book). I just had to get it, haha. After the Oslo trip, we drove my dad home. He couldn’t come with us because he had work to do at the brewery. We drove into town and went out to a cafe to eat lunch/dinner. I ate a salad with rice noodles and prawns, it was OK. Mom and Emil ate hamburgers. After we were finished eating we went to Pavarotti to watch a band play. Pavarotti is a restaurant/bar that often have live music. Later at home I packed my bag, because I’m staying at Emil’s apartment this weekend. In the evening we watched the first episodes of Iron Fist and an animated movie called 9. I was very skeptical to Iron Fist. So far it is OK, but not as good as the other Marvel/Netflix series. I didn’t read anything today, but that is OK, I did a lot of other fun things.

On the way to Oslo

Sunday: After yesterday’s escapades I fell a bit tired and fatigued today. That is usually how it is with ME/CFS. After the breakfast I started feeling sick and nauseous. I was planning to writing and posting this post but I have to postpone it to tomorrow. Emil is rat sitting (can you say that? Like dog sitting?) some rats for a friend. They are cute, but I don’t love to have them crawling on me, so I’m sitting far away from them when they are out of the cage. I also forgot to mention that I have started The Life-chaning Magic of Tidying Up. I really want to tidy and get rid of the things I don’t need.

Monday:

Today my mom and I went to the mall because I needed to take some photo booth pictures for a document. So glad I have finally done it. I found a really pretty gold mirror in one of the interior design shops. It would have looked great above the sofa in Emil’s apartment. Too bad it was way over my price range, 2500 NRK – $300. I was almost scared to go out today because of the recent threat of terror. Last week a big truck drove down and killed a lot of people in Sweden and this week they found a bomb in Oslo. After the mall I didn’t do much, other than posting a blog post and read. I read in The Final Empire for the Tome Topple readathon all evening, and manage to read 90 pages. That is a lot for me. I also started Blankets, and read 130 pages in that book too.

Tome Topple Readathon day 4: The Final Empire 288 of 643 pages, The Book Thief 4h07m of 11h & Blankets 133 of 582.

Tuesday:

Today I haven’t done anything special other than my weekly Tuesday appointment. I started writing this week’s T5W post, and read a bit in my book. Lol, at this rate I’m not going to finish all of the tomes for this readathon. I’m already behind with 200 pages or so.

Tome Topple Readathon day 5: The Final Empire 342 of 643 pages, The Book Thief 4h31m of 11h & Blankets 240 pages of 582.

Wednesday:

I have done a lot lately so I needed a day to relax, that is very important when you have ME/CFS. I have planted some of my sprouted herbs into gravel. My plan was to post this week’s T5W today since it is Wednesday, but my cousin and her family came for a surprise visit. I ended up having to postpone it one day. In the evening I took a bath, watched YT and read in The Final Empire.

Today I visited my friend Maria and her sister Linn. We made some waffles, and they tasted delicious. Norwegian waffles are not the same as American or Belgian waffles, they are skinnier and in another shape. It was a fun evening, I always love seeing Linn and Maria. After the girls night I went to Emil’s apartment, because I’m going to stay here the whole Easter. I didn’t read anything today because I was tired and I wanted to spend time with Emil.

Tome Topple Readathon day 7: Didn’t read anything.

Friday:

20170415_203311

Today I haven’t done much, only been inside the apartment. Around noon my mom and my cousin came for a visit. He is staying at my parents house for a couple of days. We served the leftover waffles from yesterday and coffee. In the evening we made some Indian food and watched A Series of Unfortunate Events. Later in the night we watched the whole Zodiac movie. It was really interesting, especially how they chose to have the colors yellow and blue going through the whole movie. What was the meaning behind that? Now I want to research more about the Zodiac killer, haha. I didn’t read anything today either, ah this readathon is going to shit. I was doing ok, but now I’m really falling behind.

Tome Topple Readathon day 8: Didn’t read anything.

Saturday:

We haven’t done anything special today either. We are just relaxing and spending time together this Easter. Earlier today we watched the first episodes in the new season of Attack on Titan. That anime is really good, and we have been waiting for a new season for years. We also finished A Series of Unfortunate events. I really liked the adaptation. I need to finish the book series, but I have gotten kind of bored with it. In the evening Emil played Zelda and I read in The Final Empire.

Tome Topple Readathon day 9: The Final Empire 478 of 643 pages, The Book Thief 5h37m of 11h & Blankets 240 of 582.

Sunday:

So far today I haven’t done much. I’m rushing to finish this post because we are going to Emil’s dad for dinner, and we are leaving in 30 min. Hope you had a great Easter

diary

Monday:

I have been very productive today when it comes to writing blog posts. I have finished up and posted my April TBR. I have also written this week’s T5W, and started a review of Holding Up The Universe. I will hopefully finish it before Friday. Other than working on some blog posts, I haven’t done much today. My mom and I went for a walk around the neighborhood. I can’t believe that I put 12 books on this month’s TBR. That is way too ambitious for me, I usually only read half of that. It’s especially crazy since I’m doing more now than I used to do before. In the evening I just played Dishonored for a couple of hours, and read 70 pages in Grave Peril. I’m on page 262.

Tuesday:

Today I went to my weekly Tuesday appointment. In the car to the appointment I read in Grave Peril. I need to finish it before the Tome Topple readathon starts. The book is starting to grow on me, even though the writing still isn’t my favorite. In the evening my Emil (bf) and I watched the first episode of season 3 of Rick and Morty. If you haven’t watched that show, you need to. It is FANTASTIC! After that we watched Twin Peaks. Before bed I finished up the T5W post for tomorrow. I’m also starting to not feel good, my body is aching. I hope I’m not getting sick, that would be terrible.

Wednesday:

Today I met my friend Maria in town and we grabbed a coffee together. We choose to try out Starbucks. I have never been to Starbucks before, only on holiday out of the country. The only Starbucks in town is pretty new, or have been here for just a few years. I ordered a latte and a brownie, the brownie was almost too sweet but it tasted alright. After Starbucks we went shopping and bought myself a new lipstick. I wanted to try out a liquid lipstick in a brownish tone for a while now. I ended up on buying a NYX Liquid Suede liquid lipstick in the color Soft Spoken. I also bought a new pair of pair of pants that I’m planning on using this weekend. I have to mention this weird thing that happened to us. When we were on our way out of the mall, there was this guy, probably around 18-20 years old, so younger than me. He was standing in the hallway that you use to exit the mall. When we walked past him he shouted after us; You, you with the glasses, you are kind of cute! (something like that, translated from Norwegian). I didn’t answer and just kept on walking, so he shouted it several times. It was a really weird and creepy situation. Have something like this happened to you? Before bed I read in Grave Peril. I’m almost finished with the book now.

Thursday:

I had a big plan to be very productive today, writing some blog posts, pack everything that I need for the trip this weekend, take a bath, reading and finishing Grave Peril and other things. But something happened that stole all of my energy. So I only manage to start the review of Holding up the Universe, write down some of my diary this week and taking a bath. I also manage to pack a little bit of clothes. When I was packing a decor item made of glass that was standing on a shelf in my room, fell down and broke in 1000 pieces. This was just the topping of bad things that happened this day. I loved that thing because my mom got it from her sister when they were young. It meant a lot to us because my aunt died a couple of years ago. I’m sad it broke because of the sentimental reason and that I really liked the look of it. I’m so tired tonight that I didn’t manage to finish Grave Peril, even though I only have 20 pages left. My TBR for this month is already going to shit, lol.

20170407_191101

This weekend Emil and I, and some friends of us are going on a cabin trip to Norefjell. Today I packed up the rest of the things I need for the trip, and just relaxed and saved some energy for the weekend. In the evening Emil picked me up and we drove for 1 ½ hours to the mountain. It is my first time here, because the cabin was built after I got ill. The cabin is really nice with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and it wasn’t as cold as I had expected it would be. I’m not going to need all the warm clothes I packed haha. After we got settled in we made some tacos for dinner, and just talked and played some cards. Today is also the first day of the Tome Topple Readathon. I have started two tomes for the readathon: The Final Empire and The Book Thief.

What I read today for the Tome Topple Readathon: The last 20 pages of Grave Peril, 44 pages of The Last Empire and 1h22m of The Book Thief.

Saturday:

20170407_195722

In the morning before I was up, the boys went to ski at the ski center. Victoria and I was home with the dogs, and just relaxed and talked. I also read 60 pages in The Final Empire, I’m liking it so far. Many hours later when the boys came home we grilled some food and ate dinner. In the evening we played “Rykte Går” (I don’t know what the English version is called). That game was so much fun, and we played it for hours. We stayed up really late so I didn’t read anything more in my book.

What I read today for the Tome Topple Readathon: 60 pages of The Last Empire and 1h22m of The Book Thief.

Sunday:

20170407_200302

In the morning we packed up all of our things and cleared out the cabin before driving home. In the car on the way home I read 30 pages of The Final Empire. Now it is later in the day and I’m sitting in my room writing this blog post. The rest of the day I’ll just relax and watch some YT and read in my book.
