Last night DH took me to a party for his new work. It was really cool to spend an evening with him - he is the love of my life after all! and he's been working so hard since we got here that I feel like one day I will get home and he will be there and I will call the police because I won't recognise the intruder! It was a really important event with loads of super VIPs he had to network with (I can't go into too much detail about what he does, that's one of the reasons this blog has to be so anonymous except for my friends who already know who I am!).
It actually felt weird to be going over to the Central part of Stockholm for once, since we got here my world has pretty much been the island of Södermalm, kind of like I'm starring in my own little version of lost! But it definitely felt good to get dressed up and I even got a tiny bit buzzed! It was a really beautiful venue that overlooked this museum that looks like a fairy-castle, and also the sea. DH was super busy, doing all his schmoozing, so I got to explore on my own a little - I would hate to be the kind of wife that hung around the edge of her husband's conversations like some lost little dog or something! Luckily I've always been super social and confident with strangers, so I let the poor guy get his work done and I "worked the room" as they say!
I met this really sweet lady who is also wife to one of the partners, and we totally bonded - maybe I've met my first Swedish friend! The only downside is that she looks seriously Swedish so probably I will have to kill her. I basically looked like a 3 foot tall troll next to her, and even though I got highlights done the same afternoon, it's not the same as someone who was actually born with Barbie colored hair! So maybe not, but she was fun to hang out with anyway.
The only min-weird thing was that it turns out that Eric trains her too! I guess that's how DH heard of him to book him for me, and obviously I'm not jealous or anything stupid like that - the poor guy has to make a living, right! It just felt kind of weird to hear her talk about the stuff they talk about, which is kind of the same stuff we talk about, and I don't know, I'm being really stupid of course, but I'd kind of thought a little bit that he enjoys hanging out with me, you know? I know I'm just a job to him, I get that of course, it was just more maybe I thought that because we laugh so much he was enjoying himself too. And I know he is, I'm not saying it was all totally ruined or anything, I was just a tiny bit bummed that it sounds like he laughs with her too.
Okay it's official, I need a life!!!
