Temporarily Out Of Service

Extreme busyness (is that a word!!!) dead slow internet at work and connection problems at home and more...are the reasons for my non-posting syndrome. BUT I still love you all, miss you even more and I do have so many things to share with you all....soon very soon the odyssey will go on (WOW I sure do have a big ego!!!)

Late Night and A Crappy Morning

Yesterday night me and hubby went to a farewell party for one of his collegues from work. The invite said 8:30 and as always we were the 1st people there. Usually I sleep at 10 so I figured I have enough time to show up say hi have dinner and leave. But what I didn't know that I had to wait till 10 for people to actually show up. By that time my temperature hit 100 and I was starting to boil. Maybe its one of those "Arabic" traditions to show up 2 hours late but that in my book it's called something else. (i will not be naming the "something else" since my blog will be probably read by people who were at the party". Anyways it was 1030 when we left and I was starving. Stopped for Falafel on the way home and I was in bed by 11:15. What a waste of time. So fast Forward its 9AM today. Already moody and sleepless from yesterdays "whatchamacallit" when I get a phone call from a client who irritates me even more by asking the silliest and dumbest requests. AHHHHHHHHHHH. It's not yet 10AM. I'm scared to go through today. Maybe I'll step on a mine and get blown up into pieces. What a perfecr ending that would be.

Stupid Mouwasat Hospital

So I just called them to schedule an appointment, but it turns out that they do not accept appointments over the phone i have to go down there in person. How STUPID is that!!!! I work in Kuwait and I live in Salwa and for me to go to Salmiyah and get stuck in the traffic just to schedule an appointment doesn't come off as smart or practical. Stupid stupid management.

Woman to Woman Encouragement

Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Someone's house will be bigger.
Someone will drive a better car.
Someone's children will do better in school.
Someone's husband will fix more things around the house.
So just let it go and love yourself and your circumstances.
Think about it...The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
The most highly favoured woman on your job may not be able to have children.
The richest woman you know - she's got the car, the house, the clothes- but might be very lonely.
So, love yourself. Love who you are right now. Tell yourself "I am too blessed to be stressed."
Be blessed ladies!

"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world".

"Morning After Pill" Crisis Resolved

After months of boycotting the "morning after pill" Wal-Mart has finally agreed to stock it. Oh Thank you Lord...

"Officials of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Announced Friday the company will reverse its earlier policy and stock emergency contraception pills in all of its pharmacies effective March 20, saying the giant retailer could not justify being the country's only major pharmacy chain not to carry the morning-after pill"

Can't we all now sleep in peace... People in the US, back home in the US, as so many born and living here would say, have been losing sleep over this disaster. Oh well I'm so happy that now the case is closed and people can now have more unprotected carefree sex. Woohooooo


Earth Is Melting at Both Ends

For the first time, scientists have confirmed Earth is melting at both ends, which could have disastrous effects for coastal cities and villages. Antarctica has been called "a slumbering giant" by a climate scientist who predicts that if all the ice melted, sea levels would rise by 200 feet. Other scientists believe that such a thing won't happen, but new studies show that the slumbering giant has started to stir. read on

Having a Bad Day?

The next time you're having a bad day imagine this:

You're a Siamese twin.
Your brother attached to your shoulder is gay.
You're not.
He has a date coming over tonight.
You only have one ass.

For Pleasure For Life

More than ever before men are dodging lifetime partner - commitments. I witnessed 2 similar cases this month. The soon to be husbands of my 2 friends called off the engagement and left the country. Both the couples have been engaged for over a year. I don't want to be judgmental but from the start it was never meant to last unfortunately my friends didn't accept that since they were dreaming of that white dress. Thinking about it out loud most of the couples just get married for the wrong reasons. Women for security and money and men for companionship and babies. That's why most of the times men end up calling off the wedding cause they don't want to settle down just yet but women, emotional creatures, are so overwhelmed by the whole picture perfect situation they end up going through the whole thing to only be faced with reality after taking off the white gown. I am honestly happy for these 2 girls. Their engagement was never meant to happen in the first place. It will hurt now but at the end they will look back and smile and accept that what has happened just happened for a good reason.

The Battle of the SMS

It was the night before my baby's home coming. 11 PM, moi, sleeping peacefully and dreaming of a magical land far far away. And there it was the first SMS Beep.

Hubby: You sleeping love?
Me (waking up hysterically half asleep) : Yes baby
Hubby: I miss you loads
Me (confused): Miss you tooo
Hubby: How much?
Me (even more confused about y are we having this conversation in the middle of the night): beaucoup love but I sleep now baby
Hubby (not stopping now): I am coming in an earlier flight tomorrow. I land at 7
Me (surprised): 7? AM? Do you want me to pick u up?
Hubby (still going on): No but take the key out of the keyhole so I dont wake u up?
Me (hoping to be the end of it): OKa Love
Hubby (not reaching the end of this): You need anything ?
Me (on the edge of breaking down): Mo
Hubby: Who is Mo?
Me (barely seeing the letters): not MO, I mean NO
Hubby (relieved): I have a surprise for you
Me (cursing): great love but i'm tired and really need to go back to sleep now bonne nuit

5 minutes pass and no SMS. I can sleep now. I rest my head on the pillow and wait for the train to take me to that land far far away until I hear MIKI barking, meaning there is someone at the door. I open my eyes again to see what's going on when I get another SMS Beep and there is now someone knocking on the door. Walking to the doorwhile opening the SMS i read "guess whose home?". Oka so now i'm standing in the hallway not sure if the man knocking on the door is hubby or some psycho who got hold of hubby's phone and is pulling a not so funny prank on me.

Me (hysterical): whose there? baby is that you?
No reply
Me (shouting): BABY IS THAT YOU?
hubby (with a smile on his face): yes baby its me open the door

Now MIKI is even barking harder, I can barely stand on my feet, I hug baby, kiss him good night and go straight to bed.

MIKI's World

During the looooong weekend MIKI was in heaven. 4 days of fun and games and constant TLC. He couldn't have asked for more. But on Monday reality hit and once again he found himself all alone in the house. Thinking about it he only gets 20 min of playing time in the morning and at night around 3 hours, and that's not enought at all. I do understand that but what can I do. Now it's even harder on him cause hubby is away and MIKI keeps on checking the bed and the office looking for him. It breaks my heart. I need a dog sitter. Is there any of those around? Job very easy pays well and only for a couple of hours a day. I hope he knows how much I love him and that it's hard for me too.
