Esalaam, Hello and Salut

Hope everyone is doing great... and their day and of course Ramadan is going well...

I woke today with the biggest headache and felt like I wanted to sleep...but of course I could not...had to make the suhour meal, then pray then help my husband get ready for work.

I really wanted to go back to sleep, but had alot of home works to do: clean the kitchen, iron and wash a load of towels....O snaaaaaaps seems the home work is never done here!

I need a washing machine !!!!!!!!

I am off to market in a mintue...to buy some ingredients for a kataif...(TY Dawn for the recipe)... I hope it turns out good.

:D I hope to come back and take a nap after zuhr.

We got invited to coffee after tarawee... my husband ditched me after 15 minutes and I was forced, forced I tell you to stay until midnight... I think I will never eat another sweet again...

:( They served me tea in the traditional tea glasses, you know the small ones... and i looked at it and seemed like to me the glass was half way filled with sugar... I slowly took a sip until to gag on how sweet it was...and LOL on the saucer they had left me 2 EXTRA sigar cubes :huh: crazy!!!!!!!!!

Anyway...

Noura: how many more days now?

Stacey: When is Zaeem arriving?

Jackie: How was your anniversary?

Rahma: How was your birthday?

Hmmm if I forgot anyone that had some news, I am sorry...

:(

Birthday was pretty good. We went shopping yesterday, and asside from our little racist encounter (see seperate thread), it was good. My husband bought me shoes :dance: The poor man insisted he come along, and I'm like :huh: are you sure you want to go shoe shopping? He soon realized why american husbands do everything possible to avoid shoe shopping with their wives ;)

I finally got some trendy-ish shoes. I've never been a trendy shoe person, but I love the mary jane/ballet flat look that is popular (at least I think it's popular. i'm hopelessly uniformed when it comes to trends)

My husband and I went shoe-shopping in Florence together this one time when the sneakers I bought from home were literally falling off my feet and decided I had to bite the bullet, despite the conversion rate, and buy a new pair. So, he decides he will come with me; I swear he was fine, until the exact moment we stepped foot inside the store, when he was struck by all of the following:

- Insatiable hunger

- Insatiable thirst

- Overwhelming exhaustion

- A headache

- A stomach ache

- The need to use the bathroom

- a foot-ache

- Dizziness

- A fainting spell

- a rash

- hysterical pregnancy

- leprosy

And complained about EVERYTHING until I was like "Omg fine, I'll get these and we'll go, ya big baby!" He rushed me so much that I wound up getting shoes that were too small :angry: lol Later on that day, I went back to the store (alone) and got a bigger size lol.

Hi It's Monday! Nothing going on.

Does anyone know how ofter USCIS updatse their progress on which month the are processing? I noticed today that it was last updated Sept. 12th and/or 19th. So I am guessing once a month.

Well I hope everyone has a good day!

Wanted to say: My husband is the one that likes to shop for clothes, I hate it and I always have to drag him out of the stores. Yesterday I had to literally walk out of three stores in the mall to get him to go home! Man! What am I going to do?! :huh::D:lol:

Sounds much like Mohammed when doesn't have more money for the internet cafe and we're over our 2 hour self-allotted time. Why he can't just say "Its time to go now," is beyond me. Usually its just "I'm HANGRY!!!!"

When I was in Jordan my hunny begged to take me shopping and was very patient as I looked through everything. I never found anything I wanted to buy which is VERY strange for me. He has sent me several care packages since I got back though, the last one was my absoulute favorite!!! Dead sea beauty products, tons of it!

Everytime I send him somthing he has to turn right around and send me something too, he can't accept a gift lol and when anyone comes here to the US from Jordan he has to send me a gift, its cute. I'm really happy he is good about the shopping thing though because I'm a shop-o-holic. :lol:

Afternoon everyone,

Well I found out today that I am a liar!! :lol: I posted to a thread asking about being touched on Sunday (sayin I wished they would touch me any day) and later found out I was indeed touched today!!! Don't know why I was touched, but at least I was!! :P

Can't remember where the original post was to correct myself, but oh well. So that is my good Monday news. And you are right...it isn't such a bad thing to hang out here with our MENA friends..have a great rest of your day.

Maggie
