Busy busy busy

As my husband said in the previous post, there really aren't enought hours in the day! Ok this is a brief summery of whats been going on with me:

I quit my job, I turned 31 and we are preparing for Faisool's 1st birthday!

Not in that particular order ofcourse!


I can't believe it but I finally finally quit my dead end job! I got two offers from two really good places! Anyhow, I picked one of them, signed the contract then drove straight to the ministry and submitted my resignation. All 4 lines of it! They tried and tried to get me to change my mind, but I have been wanting out for quite some time now.

I start my new job next week inshallah (wish me luck)!

Oh and yes I turned 31 as well. It wasn't as scary as turning 30 I must say. It was actually quite ok. Hmmm. I'm 30 years and 20 days older than Faisool. Thats alot! My mom is only 20 years older than me. Oh well, whats done is done!
As for whats been preoccupying my mind since before our son was born: The 1st Birthday paaaaaarty!!! Mux thinks its useless to have one since Faisal doesn't really understand whats happening and will most likely end up not enjoying it. I beg to differ. I think it is of great importance to have a wonderful 1st birthday. I'm sure he'll appreciate all the hard work when he sees the pictures in the future. Mux is ofcourse accusing me of having this party for myself not for Faisal :) But despite all these remarks, he's been a great sport about it all ,and I've appointed him official photographer of the event. (Lets not get him started on the fact that I was thinking of hiring a photographer for the party......)

Party is tom inshallah and I hope it turns out well. Will post picture!

And thats a wrap for now!

All women are the same. By the way how come muscati has not said a word. It must have cost a bomb.

Any way mabrook for both of you.

OceanDream said...

Awww, thankyou guys so much! Will definately definately post pics of the party!

Congrats on the new job Warda!!! How is little bambino doing?

Coloman, the reason Mux hasn't commented yet is because he is still shell shocked :)

muscati said...

ColOman - the birthday ended up costing 10,000 rials! Just kidding. I have no idea how much it cost, seriously. Things like these, once you decide to do them you can't be picking pennies over the cost. I wasn't cheap, that's for sure. But you can't really put a monetary value on your son's first birthday party.
