It's been a long time.....

I'm here and alive. LOL We are doing great in Jordan. My DH has been in America (wow, it sounds so weird to say that..lmao) for 5 weeks already and man, has the time flown by! I miss him SO much but I'm strong and am handling things just fine by myself.

DH said once he comes back we will move upstairs to his apartment. (We are living in hers now since his apt. is being rented and we thought it would be better to stay with her so she isn't alone.) We aren't having "problems" with her, it's just that she is old and likes things her way. The kids annoy her to no end and she doesn't understand that they are *kids* and *have to run and make noise and they fight and yell a lot. What am I supposed to do? Lock them in a room and throw away the key? lmao My SIL's (and even her sons) all say that that is how she is and just ignore her, whatever she says just let it go in one ear and out the other. So that is what I am doing now. At first I thought it was just me and I was getting upset but now I see that she is like that with everyone.

So that is what we are going to do and it will be so much easier to have my own house again and not live with anyone but DH and my kids. I am SO tired of living with ppl. lol I lived with my mother for yearsssssss. I want to be able to clean when *I want to, cook whatever food I want to and not have to hear crap about how the food I'm making isn't good enough or how having a sandwich every once in a while for dinner isn't good and doesn't have vitamins. @@ lol

So all in all things are going well but I miss DH and can't wait for him to come back so we can move upstairs! :o)

Oh, I forgot to mention. My BIL and one of my SIL's with her 3 kids came back from Spain. My SIL's DH is still in Spain and will come here in about a month. I love my BIL who is here, he keeps me company and is so funny and I love being around him. I missed him being here since we came! :o)

Well, Eddie left a few hours ago. I, of course cried but what really surprised me was to see Salah start to cry. He didn't see me cry since I was in the other room but all of a sudden I heard him bawling and Eddie and his brother were like "Why are you crying?" Salah was like "I'm gonna miss youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" Poor kid. He usually isn't emotional when it comes to that kinda thing but I guess he is bigger now and knows daddy will be gone for awhile. :*(

So, we are doing ok right now. I am actually pretty bored, lol. I made a list of things I want Eddie to bring with him from there. They have pretty much everything here but there are a couple of things that I like that aren't here, like Goya Adobo and Sazon. lmao

Alrighty, It's time to start cooking dinner now. Here in Jordan we are 7 hours ahead of America just in case anyone was wondering why I was cooking dinner so early. :oP

We're HERE!

We made it to Jordan! We left on March 14th and had a smooth flight. The kids and I are doing great. They love having all of their cousins to play with and are always busy.
Time sure flew by. We are here just about a month now and I just got internet a few days ago. LOL Eddie is going back to America on Tuesday. He has to take care of a few things there like the house, etc. We're not sure how long he is staying yet. He might work a little bit while he is there if there *is work. I'm gonna miss him but then again he drives me crazy being home all the time. :oX
So that is my quick update for now. I will post more soon. :o)

The date is set...

Looks like we will be moving to Jordan on March 14th. Sooooooooo close! I will have internet over there so I'm sure I will keep in touch with everyone!

Over the weekend, Kareem had a fever that lasted 24 hours and started getting red dots all over his body. It started out as a few and then today they are all over him. I took him to the doc and he had a reaction to the MMR shot. He will be fine and the rash should go away within a few days. He did get the chicken pox shot and I thought it might have been from that. Thank God it wasn't since I've never had the chicken pox and I need to get a vaccine myself. I'd hate to get CP at my age. :o/

That's all for now, I have lots of packing/sorting to do. I'm excited to go but it will take some getting used to and until everything is set over there, it will be very frustrating and stressful. :::::sigh:::::

This past weekend......

Sucked!!! All 3 boys got a stomach virus. It started with Amir on Thursday. Friday around noon time, Kareem threw up for the first time and had diarrhea. Then at 5:00pm I was getting ready to go pick up my mother from work and right before we could get out the door, Salah threw up. Thank God for the carpet cleaner I have! It lasted all weekend and I've done more laundry this past weekend than I usually do in a week!
They all seem to be better now, Thank God. Amir was the worst since he also had ear infections and is on antibiotics that are causing diarrhea for him. He has been out of school since last Thursday and just went back today. He is very happy to be back to school. :o)
Even though the kids were as sick as they were my BFF Tasha came to visit me and help out. She is an amazing friend! <3

Poor Amir

It all started at 1am. He started throwing up (in our bed to say the least) about every half hour. Of course Kareem woke up every.single.time and I had a hell of a time getting him back to sleep. Then after the 3rd time of Amir throwing up, he had the runs really bad, IN HIS PANTS! We're lucky if we got 3 hours of sleep last night. ::::::::yawn::::::::: I'm assuming he has what Kareem had last week. :o( So after we take Salah to school we are heading to the doctor with Amir. I'll update later if I am still able to keep my eyes open. :o)

Kareem's Well Visit

He went today and is growing great. He is 19.4lbs. and 30 inches. Nothing too exciting happened. lol He got 3 shots, poor baby. :o(
He's a sweetheart though. I love this kid soooo much. He is the biggest Momma's Boy EVER! He wants to be near me/held by me all the time! I just can't believe how big he is getting and how fast the time goes!
