Yes, we are the sick O’s. O stand for our last name.
My daughters, me and my husband has been attacked by the vomiting virus. So for the the last 3 days, we’ve been in and out not from the hospital, but from the toilet. We’re taking medications already. Except that my youngest is still feverish and still not energetic as before. We’re on alert if there’s no changes within 12hrs, we have the go signal to admit her in the hospital .
So my review for looking over Suplay.com for wrestling mats is on hold. Family first.
Be safe everyone.
Do you know that my mother wanted me to take Nursing in college? Of course I refused to. Why? Because my sister who are older than me took Nursing but they weren’t able to finish it. So I was thinking of probably there’s a jinx behind it or something (yeah, I know I think crazy about these things, hahaha!). And so when it was my time to go to college, I shifted to Computer studies.
But now, I regret not taking a course from the medical field. I felt like taking a Nursing course is more stable because you can gain experience from it plus grow a much better employment career. Now as I look at those med cart in the hospital, I feel sorry for not following my mom. Sigh.
It’s not too late, my husband said. I can still gain a basic training for it. But I don’t want to enroll in another course. I was joking with my friends that my mind is already memory full already, hahaha! Anyway, this is life. My life right now is where Allah wants me to be. Content, healthy, and a happy wife with the two most prettiest girl in the Middle East.
2 days ago, my parents celebrated their wedding anniversary. I’m not sure though how many years they’ve been married. I just know that it’s more than 38 or I think 40 something. I don’t know how old even my eldest sister, hahaha! I’m not good in numbers.
Anyway, I just called my Dad and greeted him today. He told me that Mom was crying because I failed to ring them on the exact date of their anniversary. Well of course I have my reasons for it, and I’m glad that they understood why I missed calling them.
I’m in search for an anniversary gift for dad and mom, and these are the good ones that I’m checking for. Mom and Dad in spite of their ups and downs, their marriage is one of the best I may say. Through sickness and in health, they are with each other. And I’m so blessed to witness that. They are the always there to pray for me and my family. I owe them my life and for who I am right now.
May God Allah shower them more years of togetherness.
Last month starts the summer heat here in Damascus. Hubby took us out for a swim in a nearby pool within the city. Our eldest had fun jumping off the edge of the pool making Hubby tired, but still happy seeing our dearest shout for excitement. She was afraid at first but her fear shrugged off after 10 minutes.
Too bad we weren’t able to bring our goggles with us. Hubby’s planning to take us out again within this month before the Holy Month of Ramadan begins, so I’ll be ready for that. As a matter of fact, MIL gave us a float for her to wear in the pool. I’m sure the little one will be excited as ever.
We currently have 3 verandas to choose from as to where we can put a small sized swing set for the kids. I asked Hubby’s approval if we can have one just outside the room which is opposite to the veranda of the kitchen. In that case, if they decide to play in that area, I can be on guard while doing some errands in the kitchen, let’s say while cooking. Oh what a nice view that will be.
