We have moved in in our new appartment in tagamo3 a week ago even though nothing is complete. I have no TV, Sattelite, net, water heaters, no bed mattress for me and my hubby but its ok as my kids entered school and their bus come and pick them up from here. Thank God that they have their rooms ready. Im also happy with my kitchen. But I still need to buy a lot of stuff to really feel comfortable. I come and go on a daily basis to my old appt for our stuff. I guess i need like two months to settle in. But it was a move that needed to be taken anyway for the kids benefit.

I’m here in Cairo Egypt for a very short trip as mentioned before. What can I do in only five days? I can’t see all my family and friends. I came for my cousin’s wedding and now it’s time to see all whom I love and miss. First thing to do was going to Tarnim’s open day at the fifth district early Friday and passed by our new apartment there as well. I saw my parents at the wedding and ever since my mum became sick and can’t see her. I didn’t even get the chance to give her the makeup she asked for. I went to the club twice till now and saw some of my friends and tonight I’m meeting my school mates. We will even surprise our friend lulu with an early surprise birthday as I won’t be here to celebrate it after five days. As for tomorrow I am invited at Eman’s house for a small gathering with her sister and another friend who I didn’t see in ages. Oh I really miss our old day gatherings. However, A member of the family passed away last week and I have to go pay my condolences to his wife and children. I still need to go visit my aunt whom I didn’t get the chance to see last summer. Above all that, my kids have their outings too and I have to coordinate. My god, days run so quickly here and I didn’t accomplish all what was on the list.
My birthday was on the 17th and since my kids have exams I kept hinting and telling my friends that I can’t go out these two weeks. However, we woke up on Friday finding my husband insisting that we go out to the mall to buy stuff before I leave kuwait. I agreed as he kept on nagging and I told the kids what to study until we come back. We went to the avenues and kept on walking and walking and saw a lot of shops. Honestly I was not in the mood for shopping and I told him that I will come later as I still don’t know what I need. So he told me let’s go to the jewelers shops to buy me a gift. Headed there, but found most of them closed cause it was Friday. Now I really wanted to go home to see the kids studying and follow up with them. Then he told me let’s have lunch! Honestly?? I didn’t know what’s wrong with him, but he was upset when I told him no. I already cooked for the day and I was in a hurry. However, we went to eat at Olive Garden. Strange enough, he kept ordering soft drinks, salads, appetizers and then the main dish. He ate and he seemed very hungry and thirsty. What’s going on? I thought to myself, till I heard a Whatsapp notification from his mobile. Reached and read it and it said “we are ready”. Oh my god, they were preparing something at my home and he was wasting time until they finish. I asked him what were they planning but he said nothing and took the phone with a smile. He looked so innocent and pure and I loved that look. In so many years I didn’t get that feeling. Oh I love my husband. Went home, quite sure that I will find my friends cars but no trace. Went up, opened the door to find them all there waiting for me and with a Glow in the Dark theme. They were all wearing neon head bands, bracelets, earrings, lipstick, nail polish, etc… I found neon paper on the floor and the walls. They even decorated the tables and trees. It was all glowing. There were two disco balls and a loud speaker with all the songs I love. Two of my friends were sick but they came to please me. They ordered a lovely pink cake with my initial and lots of food. I got another home made cake baked by my friend and some homemade burgers by another friend. We danced all evening and I had a great night, never to be forgotten.
Both my kids too were involved and helped out. Had a perfect bday and I have to thank them all (my loving family and gorgeous friends). I love you all.
It’s this time of year when we all get stressed at home. The month of May is the month I worry about and I used to hate it cause my son always gave me trouble and I had to study with him but strange enough this year he’s doing great so far and I didn’t help him at all. I have no idea what he’s even studying, but the problem this year is my younger daughter. From an A student to a C and sometimes D, that’s horrifying. I will dedicate this coming two weeks to study with her and try to push her a little bit even though it’s too late, but I have to do it. My birthday is tomorrow but I don’t feel any joy and don’t even want to celebrate. A friend of mine wanted to celebrate with me but I thanked him and told him that I don’t have time to celebrate. Never mind, inshallah next year will be better and my daughter will pass this teen phase. Wish us good luck.
So our 9 days holiday is over. We went out every single day for either lunch or dinner and we went to the cinema and had friends over for lunch one day and over the weekend we went to Rimal hotel and resort. This was really exciting cause the kids needed a change and the best thing for them was swimming. I also enjoyed walking by the beach especially at night and touching the sand with my bare foot and just splashing into the sea with the cold breeze of the night. I had my friend Amal and her husband with us. We had two connected rooms and almost spent all day with each other. We checked out Saturday noon and headed to our home in Salwa not knowing what is ahead of us. We were all exhausted and full and couldn’t even have lunch as we have eaten for a full year ahead 😀.
We just chilled in the living room in front of the TV without moving. I didn’t even unpack our bag. However, at night Mohamed started saying that he is not feeling well and has a headache. He took Panadol and tried to sleep. The kids went to bed and so did I. I left Mohamed sleeping on the couch as he sometimes do when he is tired to walk to the bedroom. At 3:00 am he woke me up saying that he can’t take it and will go to the hospital. I went with him of course and the doctor gave him a pill under his tongue as he had real high blood pressure 155/115. They also injected him with this dripping liquid and he rested there for some time and went back home right on time to take the kids to school. Came back after that trying to get some sleep myself but I had a terrible headache as well. Got the kids from school, cooked, helped them with their Homework and took my son to the bookshop and now I will try to sleep.
Back to normal is defined as this:
Back to School
Back to waking up early
Back to preparing quick breakfast
Back to wake up the kids several times in the morning
Back to quarreling
Back to home works
Back to checking their bags to see if there are any hidden assignments (which usually I find)
Back to boredom
Back to illness (I don’t know why and how is that connected)
Back to struggling with my teen age son
Back to taking the playstation away from him to read and it doesn’t matter anyway
Back to usual talk and conversation
Back to being nervous
Back to life
Back to routine
So guess what everybody???? I got married last week, yes me and my Ex returned back to each other. Believe me it wasn’t planned at all and it all happened at a glimpse. You remember how hesitant I was about all this but this is what happened. After coming back from the beach with my friends and daughter, we found Hanaa’s husband arrived from Cairo and he surprised us by inviting my Ex and other friends over dinner. They made us sit together at a corner and see how things will go. We discussed all details and talked about the troubles that may face us if we go ahead and do this and strange enough we were both content. So our friends asked us what was our plan and Mohamed told then that we will get together when we return back to Kuwait. But guess what? Our friend Abdel Kader called the mathoun (the man who makes the wedding ceremony and announces us as man and wife) and he came and we finalized everything in the morning. It was a crazy night and we didn’t sleep, we were all excited and waiting to make this happen. Woke up in the morning and Hanaa took me to the hairdresser and I was all ready for the day which was also my daughter’s birthday. Can’t describe how we were all excited and happy. As for me, I was a bit concerned and worried cause I didn’t tell my parents, but anyway I know that they wouldn’t agree and that they don’t want him back as a son in law. He was my husband before and the father of our children and I’m old enough to take the decision and I did. Well I hope time will heal things with my parents. As for now I’m happy and we had three lovely days as a honeymoon in North Coast with our friends and now we are back in Kuwait to start a new year and a new beginning. A happy one I wish.
