Leggo my Eggos

Here is a run down on my Egg Retrieval.



We woke up at 0700 to take a couple of pills that are supposed to help with nausea!
We got to the doctor around 0820 and had to fill out a couple papers and what not.
Then I was told to go and sit in an L shaped room. I was told to remove my clothes and put on a gown. I am not modest (Thank You US Army) but the Arab women in there with me, surely were. I felt a bit out of place.
I was the 3rd person up. I was told to tinkle... Then I went into the retrieval room. A man stuck his head thru a window and said, "Amber"... I said, "Yes Sir" I was laying down and then given meds. I also had oxygen or gas over my face. I clearly was having a hard time falling to sleep because everyone was looking at me and waiting. This time I actually got to see the doctor.
I woke up in a LOT of pain. I was moved to my room and Gustavo was there waiting for me. (Thank You Baby!!!) I was having a lot of pain. Gustavo had a nurse come and give me some pain shot. It really didn't help though. I felt like I was going to vomit, and I did. Many times! (I hate Propofol!)
The doctor came and told me that they got 27 eggs! 15 from one ovary and 12 from another!!!
(I think that was a GREAT number!!!) No wonder I was in so much pain! I was given Endometrin to take 3 times a day and Folic Acid as well. (Endometrin is a vaginal tablet!)
I have to take them at 6, 2 and 10! Daily! I am not sure how long I will have to take them!
 I was anxious to leave so I went with Gustavo to give his sample. When I got to that office, I got sick again.
We finally got in the car! Gustavo got me 7 UP and then HOMEWARD bound. We left around 1230.
 I ate some saltine crackers and drank 7 Up! Now I feel a lot better.
If I get pregnant...
Our due date will be 17 JULY 2014
If we get TWINS: 25 JUNE 2014

Arab Money, American Presidents or Vice Versa

I was in the Kuwait International Airport waiting for the kids to fly in and I saw this:
PRESIDENT GRANT
PRESIDENT LINCOLN 
I do not know why... But I was kinda bothered... I sent it to my best friend TINA TURNER and her first reaction was... "Wow, That is a bad ass photoshop!" (Hmmm)
(She is in photography school, so I guess she would see that first)
VIVA is a phone company here and the ad was in ARABIC... So I have no idea what it was saying. 
I guess I was bothered because... I am sure that if ONE of the Kuwaiti Kings had something like this done it would be INSTANT HAREM! "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!"
Maybe I am being sensitive...

Burgerholic

I was at work talking to a co-worker/friend, HOLLEY, and she told am about a burger place in the 360 Mall... She said it was the best burger... So- We had to go and test it!
I think that we found the place that she was talking about! 
So basically they are saying this burger is ALL NATURAL!
The Menu! It was on a clipboard, I thought that was cute:)
Here are the tables... Clever huh? So far, so good
Mary Ann and Mimster
My D to the J
I am sure she was saying something which made me take this picture!
Me and my number 1 man!
Me and my Mini!
More shots of the place
And another shot
Fries came out first.
Here are the burgers.
Sadly- I did not like the taste of the burger. It is like they seasoned it with onion... And I do NOT like ONION! At all... ZERO...
The delivery of the bill and sanitizer! I liked that!
Close up because the lil pale was so cute!
The bill!
The is a GRAND TOTAL of 67.67 USD!!!

Another shot of the place.
Now to add more to the growing waistline! Krispy Kremes!!!
We have a bit of time before the movie!
My babies! Lil cuties! We saw a movie called, "Zambezia" It was about birds... It was a cute movie.

Playful Pink Persuasion

 I went to The Avenues with Lateefah, Fatima and the kiddies...
First Stop- Sephora
The Chanel lady was busy so I helped myself to the colors that I wanted to test.

 The color I picked is in the MIDDLE

I ended up picking ROUGE ALLURE #94 Extatique
 I liked the way that it looked more then the others
 It is a pretty shade!

 It wasn't as loud as my previous lipstick picks...
But pretty all the same. 
I also bought some lip exfoilator and moisturizer.
Nothing worse then having crusty lips!
 I was really bothered at check out because the Chanel lady came over and said something to the manager in Arabic, he then in turn checked my bag for the lipstick.
I decided that I will NOT be shopping at Sephora again sadly... I may not know Arabic... But I know what it looks like to be accused of stealing!
Be thankful that my children were with me, had they not been... I would have showed my TAIL...

Shake Shack

The kids and I are still on a quest to find the BEST burger in Kuwait...
We decided to try Shake Shack again...

This time, I will tell you that the burgers were better than last time. I do enjoy the crinkly fries:)
This was YUMMMMY! It is like cake and ice cream all mixed together, you know... The way you do it at birthday parties! At least I do!
 As you can see... It is more expensive then the Smash Burger... We will have to go to Fat Burger again... as I do not recall the price...
17.500 KD equals....62.12 USD!!! Oh Me, Oh My!

Brazilian student auctions virginity-Sad

Most of my night... I am watching/listening to the News.

Sometimes I hear things that TRULY sadden me... Like the story below.



Can you imagine?  This is a special moment for any woman... A moment that she will remember for the rest of her life.
At times a lot of us forget how lucky we really are.  I couldn't imagine being in her situation.

I am not sure what this lady's plight was, however, she is now FAMOUS and her virginity went for 780,000!!!

Blog Loving!

Blogging!


I have found that Blogging has become my favorite past time... If I am not blogging something, then I am reading someone elses blog!

I LOVE IT! Just take the key to my heart you WONDERFUL people!


I am attracted to SMART people! I do not even know who they are, but I am intrigued by them! It is AMAZING!

Since I have been in Kuwait, I have hardly made any friends...
That is strange to me... But something that I am used to. I have been contracting for a long time and I have moved around A LOT so I generally do not get too attached to anyone. I am almost sure that is NOT healthy! I have abandonment issues! LOL.

When I am on the bus to go to work I hear, "Hey Amber", "Hi Amber"...
When I am at the grocery store... In Fahaheel... Malls... Eating Dinner... ETC same thing. A lot of people KNOW who I am... Yet- I do not have friends.

Have I closed myself of as a defense mechanism?


To start the year off right... I have decided to STAY AWAY from any OFFICE DRAMA... And make some friends that do NOT work in my office!

Happy New Year!!! 2013

Happy New Year 2013!!!

Remember the lessons learned and strive not to make the same mistakes in 2013!

Forget the negativity! Move forward with a smile and the hope that this year everything will work out!

I have been working on myself all of 2012 and I think that so far, so good!

The biggest lesson that I have learned is...
-I cannot control everything in my life.-
That was a hard pill to swallow!
I cannot control other people or their actions.

It is a New Year! Another beginning! Make this year great!

Even small steps are progression!!! Poco a poco!!!
I am still working on my resolution list!

New Years Nails!

It is almost 2013!

Here is a fun and festive look! Did I mention EASY to do?


Paint the tips... Underline with glitter... Put on the top coat, Whaaaaa Laaaaa! Beautiful!
Also- In the event that you need a quick TOUCH UP!... Apply glitter OVER the purple:

Early Bird, get a table!

We have tried to eat at Early Bird for the last 3 Fridays... I decided since I couldn't sleep, to wake up the kids and the nanny... Let's start the day! Because I love you:)
We FINALLY got a table at Early Bird. Yummy Yummy!!!
 This is us at 0500!  That means 5 AM!
They are giving me so much sugar!
 Banana Bread French Toast! LOVE IT!
 Mary Ann and her Waffle!
 My breakfast. It was an omlet.

 Domiyana had the Monte Cristo
Dj had the Breakfast Club Sandwich

I was doing Medical in Jabriya and met a lady at who worked at the Early Bird there... Strangest thing, she was from the same county as me in FLORIDA! She was a bit younger then me though... I have seen her 3 or 4 times after that, but I am not sure if she remembers me... So I have never talked to her to find out how she got here and whatnot... I will work on being more social:)
Here is the info for The Early Bird
They open at 5 AM!
The food was very good!

The Sultan Center was open also! It was great! I finished all of my chores with NO traffic! No crowds! Yes, It is true, the early bird gets the worm!

Friday Family Fun! Desert Style

After running errands... I was on Twitter asking, "What should I do with the kiddies?" The ever so wonderful and sweet American Girl gave me a wonderful suggestion! And directions to a spot where I ccould take the kiddies!

 Me and the kids... This is my hair without any heat... You will probably NEVER see this again! LOL
 This man is brave! Mimi is learning how to drive!
 Let me put your hair up!
 She is so cute huh!?
 Dj getting on a 4 wheeler... He was warming this one up for Mary Ann
 I am watching like a good Mommy!
 Me and Mims! I am TOO big for this thing! But... It will do
 Those are my babies! And Mary Ann! Having fun
 DJ- Do not go up that hill!
 Mary Ann and DJ are driving around!

 Going to where the 4 wheeler area. It was so pretty there... BEWARE of PotHoles!


 Going to get lunch...



Here are the kids knocked out! A sign of a job well done!
I think that we will go out there again soon.
On the way there were so many people selling fireworks and kites! I will get some next time and spend the day out there... Where is the bathroom though? I didn't see one of those... Hmmm
