We are extremely busy nowadays, taking care of last-minute errands while packing, cleaning and trying to keep sane. I have to admit, I’m the one who is stressing out most of the time. That’s me: Natasha the neurotic. While Jeff keeps calm in the most stressful of situations, I’m the one who is losing it constantly. I mean, come on, what’s more stressful than changing continents. For the past two weeks or so I have been exhibiting every kind of stress symptom you can imagine: insomnia, stomachache, break-outs, short temper and an indefatigable craving for chocolates.
We have a few days left in this gulf emirate spent literally running all over the place taking care of a myriad of errands. I keep telling myself, "hanat," which is Arabic for "it is almost over." I tried all the tricks to calm myself down: taking deep breaths, thinking positively, listening to music and even getting my cavities fixed (finally!) but nothing seems to be working. I guess I will only relax when I’m finally at my parents’ dinner table eating Mansaf!
umm…weed? maybe not.
hey just wanted to say hi, long time, i’m sooo glad to hear that u got married !!
hehehehe you gotta do something for your anxiety disorder, i really don’t encourage anyone to start taking valium but for you need shwalain valium everyday
have a nice day 🙂
well Iyas I can’t hit the bottle nowadays as I’m taking antibiotics for my gum infection. Do you have any other suggestions;-)
I’m sure our paths will cross some day. The world is getting smaller by the day.
I’m much better. Thank you for your concern.
OMG Natasha, calm down and do as my dad says, “take a teze,” (meaning: Take it easy.)
Oh 7aram Natasha.. Yalla like you said, “hanat”. I won’t even bother to imagine how horrible it is to move continents! We moved from Saudi to Jordan and it was such a hectic experience.. and you poor thing you’re moving to a whole different continent! I sympathize deeply Natasha. Hopefully it’ll get better and you’ll be home “eating mansaf” soon enough.
Same here, MMM is the calm one, I’m always ma3jou2a 😉
I wish you a safe trip to Amman Natasha & Jeff. And please eat as much mansaf as possible!
I wished to meet you this year when we visit Amman, but seems it wont work. Anyway, maybe another chance!
Pssst…hit the bottle.
