Edible Arrangements

What a great surprise!? The intercom went off, on the other side of my "Hello" was a friendly male Filipino telling me that the gate outside was locked and that he had a delivery… What could it be? So I sent the Nanny downstairs, she came back in the door with some yummies! 
Thank You Gustavo!!! You know Mims is KILLING this!

Depression becomes Me!

So- My heart is in my stomach… A piece of my heart has left. Mi Suave departed tonight. I had one of those "Lifetime Battered Women Moments" in the airport parking lot and then decided it was safe to drive home. (A success obviously) To try to ease my pain… I ate a whole box of Velveeta Shells and Cheese… (Ahhh Comfort Food)
















My Fave! But Gustavo's makes it better:(
It is hard to imagine how I am going to be able to function and juggle everything. He really took care of everything and spoiled us TOO much!

Then tried to watch a Jennifer Anniston movie, "The Switch" But never started it…
I got a message on Skype from My Moni Moni so I called her. She made me feel a bit better. Isn't it funny how your real friends just KNOW they are needed:)
I feel like going and dragging the kids from their beds to mine. Yeap- I am going to get them! 90 lbs each!!! I need them… Do not judge me! I am usually not an advocate of kids sleeping in bed with their parents… BUT… Once in a while is okay. Good Night from Kuwait

June 22: Movie Night

So Friday I was COMPLETELY lazy... I did not feel like getting out of the bed and since Mimsi was sick, I had all the more reason to stay in my PJs all day!

I let the Nanny relax a bit on my off days. The kids are usally sleeping in. I take out the dog, make breakfast, clean up a bit and turn on the cartoons for the kiddies! Then I am completely tired because I worked the WHOLE night before. Shout Out to my famous Breakfast Burritos!!! Back on track... So Gustavo and DJ went to Fahaheel to finish up some little last minute things... I took care of my baby bear, Mimi, and gave her a shower. She was having body aches and all! Poor thing! Then we ordered some Chinese. I was SADDENED by how un-happy I was with the food. I will NOT be callin there AGAIN... (I will not disclose your name now... Because it is SUNDAY) Gustavo was craving Sabidee... But I didn't have the number, Go figure. As the night pushed on, I started to get very sad... So I baked and baked. So my family is happy to have Chocolate Cupcakes with Carmel frosting and Super Fudge Brownies... 












Then it was time to get in bed and watch our movie...
"Battleship"


 Yes- It is Rihanna
And the Hottie from "Just Go with It" Brooklyn Decker

I think that is was a pretty good movie. Gustavo watched more then usual but only Dj made it to the end. I always wake up close to the end... I started Boo-Hoo crying for no real reason (Am I becoming a SAP?) and my sweet DJ noticed and rubbed my shoulder... I LOVE those moments! We are doing a great job raising two little humans!

 I know it seems like a very boring day to most... But it was just what we needed~

Summer

 I have been doing the homeschooling lessons for the kids this week. Gustavo and a Co-worker sent me these links to help me keep the kids sharp. I bought a lot of little books from LuLu's on EXIT 208 to also keep their minds moving. Summer can really drain the brain! Dj and Mims are still finishing up their school year. We are moving quickly:) We only get Friday off! I am so proud of them and they seem to love the extra work I bring home for them. They work with "Ms. Mommy" for 3 hours a day and then the practice worksheets, workbook assignments, after that... It is a free day.

I hope that the kids finish before the next school year starts. I want to send them to Summer Camp so they can have some fun.

Expats' Children Allowed to Enroll



‘No need to wait for completion of residence’
KUWAIT CITY, Dec 6: The Ministry of Interior has agreed to allow the children of expatriates, who entered the country on dependent visas and are now waiting for the completion of the processing of their residence permits, to enroll in private schools and universities, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily quoting sources.
Sources explained the ministry took the decision in response to the request of its education counterpart. Sources said the decision allows expatriates to register their children without the need to wait for the completion of residence formalities — the usual cause of delay in the enrollment of foreign students. Sources added the decision is applicable only on those who have not exceeded the time limit mentioned in the visa for completion of the residence permit procedures.

 How come I am just seeing this? Gustavo and I took the kids down to register them at The English School Fahaheel http://www.skee.com/  they were given a test and guess what? They were accepted:) So our days of homeschooling are almost over. I have really been trying my hardest to keep them busy with school work. There is only one problem... Putting the kids in school in KUWAIT is very expensive. Like the cost of college tuition!!! I guess this is another sacrifice that must be made! Now I see why many Americans do not bring their families. I wish we would have brought them when they were younger!
