Happy Anniversary!

The rest of the week at the preschool had its ups and downs. I got a lot closer to the kids and I loved creating a bond with them. There were some misunderstandings so one afternoon I was left alone with 12(!!!) kids! I had known them for two hours at the most and was all of a sudden in charge of a phone and a list of children's names and had to make sure that right kid was checked off when they were picked up by their parents. Ugh, I was pissed off to say the least. At least I got to earn extra money on my last day. They asked if I could start 2½ hours early so I would work 9 hours in total. Hell yeah! I had just gotten the worst paycheck in history. I got less money in my first month than what I usually got paid working as an au pair for one week. It was obviosuly because I was sick and I also don't think they counted in a lot of those days that I worked. They will come with the next paycheck. It still sucked though.
We had an Easter lunch on Wednesday before everyone got the weekend off. We had a long weekend through Friday to Monday. I love that time of year. All of us ate together instead of sitting in separate rooms. Even a big fluffy Easter bunny stopped by with ice cream for the kids! I can't even explain how tired I was coming home from work every day. But it was worth it to make money for me and Nick! Besides, the bond I got with the kids was the best. The two year old who always got picked up last was so sad when I left. The last thing he did was to say "Bye... I love you!" with the saddest face ever. I felt so bad for leaving him and not knowing if I would come back. But now I have actually been booked there for two months straight so I can't wait to see the little guy again!
Me and Nick wanted to celebrate our 10 month anniversary because anything is worth celebrating when you are away from each other this long xD It didn't turn out how we had planned though! We spoke on IMO on Wednesday on the day of our anniversary and had a great time. But I asked if we could celebrate on Thursday instead since I didn't want to have to be stressed out about work. But on Thursday the god damn wifi connection didn't work so we couldn't watch "Hey Arnold", have dinner together or even talk. Blah. Our real anniversary turned out better :P
Oh gosh... Nick sent me this picture of Snickers and Twix. He said "Before I took the picture, I told the kiddies "Säg omelett!" Hahaha... xD it's basically the Swedish version of "Say cheese" but we say "Say omelet" instead :P
Tired at work. The last few hours I was standing in pouring rain and my toes were freeezing.
Our actual anniversary on the 23rd ... Nick was so sweet and lighted the candles around the heart I sent to him for Valentine's Day :) His grandma had put it somewhere after he got it but somehow managed to find it today of all days, lol!
"Smash the bug!"... the bug would be me ;) and don't worry, all he means is to hug me, hahaha
I love how long my hair is finally getting. It needs to be even longeeeer!
Ready for my last day of work of the week
The fog was insanely beautiful
Loved taking a walk in the sunshine

Rough week at work and a Tattoo Expo gig

I was at another preschool during a four day period, since everyone in Sweden were off school and work on Friday. As a subteacher you sure have to adjust quickly. On that first day I arrived just after lunch and was left in a room alone with nine kids that I didn't even know, it was time for them to have their 30 minute rest. The teachers didn't even introduce me to them first so I just had time to say hi to some of them! I had to wake them up afterwards which was awkward since we hadn't gotten a proper introduction. After being there for two hours one of the teachers thought I should take care of the afternoon gathering of all 18 kids which was a bit of a shock to me since she hadn't prepared me for it whatsoever. I was just standing there waiting for her to get it started. I ended up saying that it's probably better that I set the tables for the afternoon snack instead and she agreed. The first day was rough to say the least because the kids were all over the place and I felt like I wasn't getting any real information from the teachers.
Nick had a gig that weekend at the Cow Palace in Daly City. Our friends in NME offered to let him sing two songs, "Rebel Yell" and his own song "Hand it over" with them :) The gig went well and he is greatful for the opportunity. But it was a bummer that he had been sick for several days (while I'm writing this he still isn't okay!) so his voice didn't hold all the way. But it was cool that they got to play at a giant tattoo expo and get their music out there! Playing at a rock bar is easier because you know that everyone there likes rock music. But it's harder to win over a crowd that isn't there just for the sake of the music. There was body suspension and all kinds of stuff going on around them which was distracting. But I have seen the videos and I think the guys did a good job :) I wish I could have been there to see it live! That's the thing that sucks most about being so far away from Nick. Whenever I watch old photos or videos of us I turn around to look at him and smile, but he's never there. And he hates how he turns around in the bed to hold me and I'm not there. These days he actually has to sleep with ear plugs because the other side of the bed is often taken over by a snoring dude :P He misses my sleepy rambling in Swedish, haha!
Now that we are both sick we really miss those times where we could crash together in bed after a long day. I remember one time when Nick stayed home from work because he wasn't feeling well. I was sick too but not enough to stay home. We were in such a bad mood when I left the house and I ended up having a crappy day at work. Then I came home, shut the bedroom door, we didn't say a word to each other, I just crashed in bed right next to him and he wrapped his arms around me. I didn't move in forever because I was so tired. I wish I could to that right now. Just throw myself into his arms and not have to say a word because he knows exactly what I need.

Screenshots from his Snapchat :)
Back home with meee <3
