Finland had earlier code SF, which meant "Suomi, Finland", maybe it was changed because people thought it ment "Soviet, Finland" :shock: Nowadays it is FIN :P

Hello guys...
how are you? i haven't heard a peep from you....

Dear Senta , are you there or the kids have had tired you out?
Gail I hope that these window frames are finished!
Sunich what's up?

here's been hectic , been changing the heating units so I can heat my apartment with gas next winter , and that meant that the apartment , got really dirty, not to mention the spring cleaning...
It's almos finished...then I got terrified that I was with baby because I had an unexpected weight gain although I did eat the same and all...got to see the doctor , and after an ultrasound , she told me that I have polycystic ovaries , and that I need more examinations....
so now I'm on some hormone pill which makes me really sensitive to hot or cold and I'm more prone than ever to cry...poor Akis....

Also Akis was away at some conference , and he came back with a nasty viral infection...he had high flu and everything , so you can see I was really really busy...today thankfully is better....

Also at the college we are meant to have exams , only that the students got up a strike!!!!

I am beggining to tire of these strikes , there isn't going to be even a normal semester????

Hi Vivie!
Hope you get feeling back to normal on that new medicine real soon and that Akis feels better too.

The computer room is now painted. We are still working on the frames for the new windows. What a way to spend some vacation days... painting and hanging up vertical blinds. Phew... I need a REAL vacation. :D

We did go to Frankenmuth, Michigan for two days before all this work started. What a lovely town! Several people from Germany moved there many years ago, so the town has a German theme. I'll post some pics soon.

If/when that strike ever ends.... good luck with your exams!

gail , thanks!!

Akis is okay now , though annoyed at my sudden changes of moods, but the doctor told me to expect this as it's a hormone pill...I'll have to finish out the prescription for another week....

then if my cycle starts or not , (haven't seen a single cycle since I moved in the new apartment , but I related them to stress and anxiety new environment etc..plus I didn't really mind , as when I have them are really painful!!) I have to see again the doctor...

Spring cleaning work is finished here , stored away all the winter clothes and things , except coats etc , as I forgot to buy covers for them...the pills between some side-effects, it also makes me very forgetful....I made at least four trips at the market today!!!

the strike of the students is due to some law the government wants to pass which reduces our degrees and also to have us thrown out of college if the students haven't completed college at the required time , which is the year of the college, say four for my branch of IT , and add half of it to the year , so you get thrown out....

a lot of students are working with college studies , and there are the people that have disabilities (I belong to this group) and also there are a lot of students that aren't really up to scratch as they are overwhelmed with too many maths programming languages etc...

even when you study full time ,my branch of IT , the work avalanches on you , and it wears you off , and the qualified to graduate each year usually aren't more than a dozen people...

although that would be good to kick the students (yes there are some) that they don't really mind and live on daddys money and some of them are nearly for ten twelve years on college , it also has an impact to the rest of us!

so the strike is on!!

on the other hand, a friend that managed to cope with all this work , is at the point of graduating , and she was early decision accepted at a finnish college for a master...she has to write only three lessons before she can go off to Finland to start her master, only that now with the strikes , she will be held back a year , and also, she will lose her position at the finnish college...
she is so sad and I know she's worked really hard so she doesn't deserves that...but Finnish colleges are really strict on this matter....and I don't know if there IS a workaround or something...
she is also of the very precious few that have had managed to finish the college at the required time!!we started together and she's left me behind , as I struggle sometimes with my disability.

I feel that life aren't fair....

on the other hand , the day after tomorrow are Theo's birthday , and tomorrow afternoon I'll go there and sleep over!!sh'll be excited!!
