Hello MENA! It has been a while! My life has been a whirlwind these past few months, but alhamdullilah, all is going well.

We are slowly adjusting to our life- the most frustrating part is that he can't drive here yet. So we are looking into getting that changed soon.

I hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to get updated! luv.gif

Enjoy the day-

Good Morning MENA

I feel with ya Baj! Every day my husband is waiting for ANY kind of mail to come for him. He wants to work, drive, do something!! All I can say is that the house has never looked better!!!!blush.gif

I clipped my cats nails yesterday Tam. I ended up doing her back nails too. I have her trained to just lay there and let me do it...thank god!!!

And_Sam - Can I borrow your husband? :D We have so much stuff that needs done around the house and neither of us really has time to do it. How did you train your cat to let you trim her nails? Our boy is front declawed but his back claws get sharp so we have to take him to get trimmed at the vet. He goes nuts when he thinks you're gonna mess with his claws or belly area. Grooming him is a chore, lol. A fidgety Persian is no fun to deal with. :D

And_Sam and Baji - don't be in too big a hurry to have the guys driving. My husband has had his probationary period extended twice due to speeding tickets. :blink:

Morning all! We are certainly having some beautiful weather for a change! No 90-100 degree today!! Feels like we are

going backward to winter. Simply wonderful cooooool weather.

Weekend was a lazy one. Felt good to do nothing!

I guess all the hype is over with "Lost". I haven't a clue what it is or what it is about as I have never seen the series.

Have a good Monday! Enjoy your day!

Good day MENA! Hope everyone is well.

Getting a drivers license was a small victory as far as Ahmed was concerned. He got that BEFORE he even got his GC and as for having your MENA man drive here on U.S. roads just be prepared to live life on the edge for a while once they DO get their drivers license wacko.gif

Aww, kitties! Can we get some pictures of these cats MENA peeps? I just :wub: the kittas!

Happy Monday everyone!

Went to the health department office in our city this morning to get the shots required for AOS. My arm is all sour and I took nap for 3 hours this afternoon. It's past 11:00 PM now and I'm all awake!! :blink:

Tomorrow is the last day of the kids' school year. Next year they both will be first-graders! :star: John and I need to find them a place to keep them active during the next two months.

I only tried driving once here..just for 5 minutes (never tried driving before...err, or after!).. It was too funny, I was sitting on John's lap and just moving the wheel. My family asked me if his car is manual or automatic, and my answer was: "I don't know! I just drove!!!" :blush: Lately I've been practicing driving on the wii, although I always come last in every car race. :cry::P

Hope everyone had a good day! (F)
