The house is almost empty now...

and so is my head and body. J came to pick up furniture Saturday afternoon, the livingroom is now completely unfurnished.
My earache is unbareable, how did I catch this? In Sweden when it once happened my mother told me to put a garlic in my ear, this was a long time ago, before I realized a mother could be wrong. I spent a day with a garlic clove and it didn't help at all, it worsen- probably the clove was too big.... Yeasterday when I googled in Swedish about otitis I found out that people are still doing that, a progress though, today they crush the clove...In Sweden they don't need doctors, except maybe for cancer, but then, often, it's too late anyway.
Well, I'm not really Swedish anymore having lived half my life abroad so I'm on antibiotics and cortisone. Although it's written that the cortisone contains an active ingredient which may yield a positive dope test I am unfortunately as exhausted as yesterday. I was counting om 50 mg of Cortancyl to clean up the upper floor, I'm still in bed waiting for the energy kick!
The washing machine just broke down, instead of feeling sorry for myself I try to think that the moment is pretty good, we where going to sell it and I'm happy we didn't have the time to do it, it would have been very embarrasing to sell a machine that broke down after a week, or once we've left!
Meanwhile I'll do my laundry at our cousin's place, where leaving on Wednesday so it's not really a problem.
I have to be fit tomorrow!

Hope you feel better.
Where do you plan to live between now and your departure, if I may ask?

We're going to live at my husband's cousin's place, just a block away. We can still meet if you're going in to Paris...
