I have wanted to write for the longest time but have about five minutes internet time a day if I was lucky! Now today lying in my bed with the internet is akin to spending the day at a luxury spa ;) Never mind the fact that I am surrounded by five billion boxes that need to be unpacked. A girl has gotta have her priorities.
We finally moved apartment yesterday alhamdulillah. For the last six weeks I have been in a one bedroom apartment with the two kids and it seriously put me on the verge of feeling like I was going to have a nervous breakdown. It was fine for my husband as he got to escape to work for 14 hours a day, I asked him if we could swap and he just patted my head and smiled.
But now we have moved to a much bigger place and the difference is amazing. I finally have my own bathroom and most importantly I could kick pudding out of my room, I love that little boy to pieces but being woken about twelve hours a night is not really conductive to a happy momma, I mean c'mon I had to deal with that for the first year of his life, I didn't sign up for the two year deal. So yesterday for the first time in six weeks he slept all night. Alhamdulillah.
We will be living in three different countries this year and so I guess I have to get used to the moving, such is the life of my husbands job. But I seriously just want to settle so badly, I want to buy actual furniture (my husbands idea of actual furniture is a green plastic garden table) but don't worry that was the first thing to go, along with the polyester sheets and faux leather couch.
I am going to get my camera fixed this weekend insha'Allah and then I will have some beautiful photos to share with you. I didn't want to live in this country by any means but I am finding the beauty where I can. I have so many stories and experiences to share with you all but it will have to wait until Sunday as there are boxes and bags on every surface possible.
Love and blessings to you all
