my life in pics this last week

Lets start off by saying I am still swamped, and the next 4 weeks will be hard. I feel for my kid, he is like parentless these days. I have practical(lab work exercises) 3 times a week until October 18th. Then I will be done with all of that. I am enjoying it a bit, like yesterday I isolated DNA from a blood sample and next time we get to do that DNA picture thing where you can see the DNA (like how it is in the movies). I am also going to be going to the lab 3 times next week for hmmmm wonder what I should call this class, its like we are going to be cultivating bacteria and counting them and testing their resistance for a number of drugs.

Anywhoot, the new apartment is still upside down because we the grown ups don't really have any time to do anything. Like we still don't have proper lights in the rooms just the bulb. And I could go on like this for a while.

I am so thankful for my band. I have not been doing what I should, but it has kept me from piling on the pounds. I am using my measuring cup during dinner time. I eat a protein drink and an apple or a banana for breakfast but what I am screwing up is what I eat for lunch. I am not gaining but again I am not losing either. 

But onto the pictures since I really should be taking notes from organic chemistry and doing some reports.

Christmas is just round the corner and apparently the store agrees with me because this is what was there today
We took a walk on Sunday morning, the top picture is the view from my door and that is where we were going. The statues/art thingies are on our way back home. It was a nice way to start a long day of exam preparations.
My new welcome mat. It says "you again?" I freaking love love LOVE it.
 My kid is in love with his new room. We bought him a new(used) TV and a couch and his room is all set up for him and his friends to enjoy it. He was very proud to pay just under half of what the TV cost (so he paid about $95). I am a mean mommy who makes her kid work and sometimes pay for stuff he wants like a newish TV, cause he had a old tube TV that worked just fine.
 This is the view from my study, that white thing in the middle of the photo is Sn√¶fellsj√∂kull a glacier that Jules Verne says hides the entrance to the center of the earth. The picture does not capture how close it really is.
 The view from my study just more to the left and it is awesome when the sun goes down.

I need more time

like tons of more time. I just moved YAY! which is awesome but expensive since we seem to need a lot of stuff to make this flat work. Then there is school I am getting more and more behind and it is scaring me to bits.
My ass and thighs hate this new flat. It is a 2 floor place. It has 15 steps inside and today I have gone up and down at least 20 times, and it freaking hurts. But I love it, but then I don't.... very confusing.

Anywhoot still sorry bout not blogging more but I honestly don't have time or at least I don't think I do. I need to chill but there is no time for it. I swear I am going to develop an ulcer do to lack of time and way to much stuff to finish.

Miss you guys, I will dedicate some time on Wednesday night to go over my blogroll and see what you are up to. Until then I better keep my nose firmly fixed onto the ever enchanting pages or physicochemical prinicples of pharmacy cause I have another test in it on Wednesday.

ramblings of a mad mad woman

I have started moving, we are just using our station wagon to move some boxes and garbage bags of clothes at the moment, we are trying to avoid having to use a rental van. We plan on moving the big things at the end of next week.

I took one load over just now, it was nothing much, 4 bags of clothes and 1 box of glasses and stuff.
It was freaking hard I tell you. I went alone since my bf is in school and my teacher didn't show which meant I drove 20 minutes to school just to drive back home. Anywhoo the new flat is on the 4th floor (that's 3rd floor for you non Icelanders I believe) and the flat itself is on two floors so I had to carry those heavy bags first up to the flat and then up to our room, think that qualifies as a good cardio for sure.

I called my doctor again for some more info on the blood work that was taken. She is only a intern so I am a bit unsure if I should consult another doctor but I will at least send my surgeon an email. But anywhoot she told me the same thing her replacement said, yada yada yada B12 and D. But then she went on to tell me that my cholesterol has gone up since 2011, back then I was at about 5 and now it was about 6.3 and that most of that was the bad kind. She said not to worry since I don't smoke and I should just try to exercise since according to her researches have shown that changing your diet usually doesn't help with that. And then she said I had weird liver enzymes, they should be about 45 but mine are at 93, again she said not worry it is nothing in an on its own but I find this weird since I have never had anything like this happen before and I am a hypochondriac and that is not helping either hahahaha

I got a 100% on my first test in Physiochemical Principles of Pharmacy YAY for me. Next week we start our practical work in organic chemistry (not sure if that is what its called (practical),but we are at a lab doing experiments and doing reports on them and stuff), then we also start that same thing with two other courses one being biochemistry and the other is microbiology, I am kind of excited for this all but OMG will it be hard work or what.

So that was all the news I have for today, I don't have enough hours in a day for all that is happening lately.

Oh yeah and my new neighbors downstairs keep having these really heated arguments late at night so now I am even more happy about moving. Last night it was only about 30 minutes but the night before it was over 2 hours and our building is made of concrete and we still could here words and sentences they were saying.

Low on D and B12 vitamins

I just heard from the doctor. I apparently am low on D but very low on B12. So now I have to have B12 injections and buy myself a D vitamin mouth-spray because I really don't want to take any tablets. I have to call her back though since a replacement called me and he never said anything about the insulin and all that jazz. But I am just a tad bummed that I am low on anything.

I forgot to put in my weight here last Thursday, but it was up half a kilo or a pound up. I should be super happy, we got the apartment now all we have to do is sign and we get the keys, that will most likely happen this week or early next week. Which means I´ll be moving this month.
School is on with a vengeance, I have a test on Wednesday and I am not ready for it because I was working all weekend. My last shifts till next summer.
TOM is here and is determined to ruin me. I am in pain and so uncomfortable all I want is to stay in bed and dream of cake but dreaming is hard when you have a splitting headache.
I need to start blogging again regularly that helped me tons, I am doing alright but I could be doing so much better.
