as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
So this woman who only comes like twice a year to ask for MONEY came over to our house tonight. I was out in the courtyard so I was the first one to greet her. Whats the first thing she does? She friggin put her hand on my stomach and asked (in Arabic) "So, your not pregnant yet?"
I politely told her "no" and I would have been fine with just that... but then she goes on and on "Leish? Leish?" said some stuff in Arabic I couldn't understand and asked "Leish?" repeatedly until she got to the entrance to our Saalah.
Really, WTH does she want me to say? Does she expect me to tell her how many times a week my husband and I have sex or something?
As if it doesn't hurt enough already that I haven't yet been blessed with getting pregnant, I have to have some woman I barely know asking me why I'm not pregnant over and over again?
And then all she came over for was to tell my SIL she wants some money-- and actually tells my SIL she wants such and such sum from her, such and such sum from my MIL, and such and such sum from my BIL!!! My SIL called the driver to tell him not to bring her mother (my MIL) home because my SIL was so angry about it.
Some of you know about this, but this is the same lady that was over our house last Eid, and when my MIL gave money for she and her daugher, she counted the money and said, "Thats all?"
My MIL got angry and kicked her out that day LOL.
I told my husband about it when we got home and he was not happy. He said he is going to tell his mother to not let her know where we move once we build our new home.
Ugggghhhh sorry for all the ranting... I just had to let it out.
On to something different--
earlier last night it started getting really windy and leaves were blowing EVERYWHERE... it actually looked like it was snowing LOL --our courtyard was a mess of leaves!!
about 2am last night (well, ok, really early in the morning LOL) it started pouring rain, there was thunder and lightening and it was soooo windy!! I was out making sure the cat was ok and he was all running around like a monkey where there was shelter alllllll wanting to play LOL
All of a sudden I heard a loud bang and was like "ohhhh what was that??"
and here is what it was:
that chair actually got blown away from the table!!!
Since everyone was asleep I took off my shayla and let myself get all wet. I love rain so much Mashallah!!
its just the traffic from hell due to Sharjah flooding that I hate!!
he he got me all singing a song from Garbage:
"I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when its complicated
and though I know you can't appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains"
