Mimi's Meltdown (Thanks Tina for the Video!!!)

Mimi's "Justin Beiber" Breakdown!!!

I wish that I would have been faster to get my phone... (I have to learn how to upload because it isn't working!!!)

Today Mimi and I went to Lulu's to get some groceries... On the way there we started talking about Selena Gomez. She asked me does she work at Disney World... and also of she is a real person... I told her that she may not stay at Disney World because she has other things to do.
I then mentioned that Justin Beiber is her boyfriend... WHATTTT... ????

My 6 year old just went crazy on me, crying and all... She was asking me,
"Why did she make Justin fall in love with her" 
"How could she do this to me?"
She was telling me that it is not fair, that she is making a plan for this, when she grows up she is going to be prettier then Selena Gomez... ETC. ETC. ETC...

EXHALE... Why? Why me? I have no idea why my daughter is already a HANDFUL! I had to call her Daddy and have him talk to her about this... She was so upset.

Once I got her all cleaned up, we went into the store... She saw the pretzel stand and said, "Maybe a pretzel will make me happy again." SMH...

Instead, after she was such a GREAT help in the store, she got a "Fancy Doughnut"

Drama from the MAMA!

Today has been one of the worst days I have had over here...

What happened to compassion and understanding? Learning your employees?

Sometimes I HONESTLY want to pack up everything and get the HECK outta here! I have to deal with more then the AVERAGE person! On the DAILY. It gets hard when people do not think about cirumstances or situations! I never ask for "SPECIAL" treatment... But the fact that I am BASICALLY a SINGLE Mother in a Foreign Country... Understand that I have things to do! And I will RECORD MY time ACCORDINGLY!

And you are OFF!!!
-Drive Home
-Spend time with the kids...
-Work Out
-Wake up 4-6 times in the day...
-Check the time, email... Sleep
-Wake UP!!!
-Get Dressed
-I have to worry about the CRAZY drivers on the road, those two vehicular cameras on the way to work... (I have to know... Am I going to get a ticket because I am IN the picture? I know I wasn't speeding TWICE and the IDIOT got me flashed!!! How do they know which car it is???)
-Did you remember your badge? Whoa, Yes!
-Is the BUS going to leave you?
-Are you going to be late now?
Then into the office...
-Now, Put on your "I do not give a DARN about anything- EVERYTHING in my life is PEACHY- smile"
"Hi Amber", "Hey Amber", "Glad you are here Amber...."
Sit down at my desk...
I am on TIME!
That is just 1/2 of it!!!
It is difficult to go into work and SPEND 12.45 hours with the same people...

I try to be the same EVERYDAY... and I am trying to be a better person. Most people who remember me generally only use one word.... "CRAZY"!!! I am really attempting... So when I can feel that someone is pissing me off, I try to stay calm... This TASK is difficult... VERY DIFFICULT...

"Think about the kids, Gustavo... The house... Calm down Amber"
I wish I was RICH and didn't have to work. I could just be get pretty... cook... shop... Do whatever I wanted! And MY FAMILY would be all that I had to WORRY about!...

Where is a Genie when you need one?

Distress!!! I received a PURPLE dress!

So- I have a "function" on the 15th. I ordered a beautiful dress and I was so anxious to receive it...
This is the ensamble I was planning to wear:

Much to my dismay, My DRESS IS PURPLE! AND is too SHORT. I am NOT freakishly TALL... I am only 5'9"!!! I have to have a BLUE dress! Doesn't the picture LOOK BLUE? Where is my LONG BLUE DRESS!!!??? So now- I have a week... To find a LONG BLUE evening gown! On top of the fact that I have to work 15 hours a NIGHT... 6 nights a week!
 Dear Dress Fairy-
Please help me find a dress!!!

First Day of School!

I found myself COMPLETELY unable to sleep... Excited, Nervous... Scared... Happy! A great mix of emotion as I tried to sleep and be up bright and early to see the kids off to school!

Mimi slept in my bed... For some reason, she was on my side of the Bed:( So I had to inch her over.

We got up early and ate breakfast. Then it was off to school.
 Me and the BIG kids!!!

I took charge and found their names on the class lists and then... waited for DJ's Best Friend to arrive... I was so happy to see that they are in the same class... Then... Off to find the classrooms.

I had a pretty full house today! I love this group! I am not sure why but they all listen to me and that makes it easy!

After I picked them up from school!
 Since they were good... They got to get some ice cream!
When they are happy, I am happy too! There is just one thing missing from this wonderful day!!!

Signor Sassi-Kuwait

I liked this place for the most part. The deco was nice and the lighting was also. I did not like the HOSTESS though. Also- No free refills so drink sparingly!
This was cool... They make their own Noodles!
This is the fried cheese
My meal... Pollo V(something)
Amber had Penne ______
Mary Ann had Fettucini
Spaghetti for my Babies!

I thought that this was so cute and SIMPLE!
Me and the Mini's!
Amber Deuce!
Amber and Amber
Again and again!

GUCCI!!! This purse was HUGE!!!
The other side of 360! It is a pretty mall... And it has all of the UPSCALE shops in it! I like it!
To get to the 360 Mall...
Take HWY 30 toward Kuwait City... Exit on 6th Ring road, Go toward Jahra.
When you see the Kuwait Intl' Airport sign, get in the feeder lane and stay to the left... Wa-Laah
The 360 Mall... If you miss that exit... You will have to make a HUG circle to get in there!
Dj- Giving a sign of APPROVAL
Princess Mimi and Ms. Maryann!!!
