Time is Running !!!

There is a constant feeling i feel! I feel that time passes by so quickly and now you can say things like " ;">omg i cant believe ive been working here for almost 2 years!" or
" omg your daughter is actually 2 years old now i feel like yesterday u called saying u were pregnant"! And when u don't see someone who has kids for a long time you suddenly realize how long you havent seen them when their babies now walk and TALK!

i feel i have no time. And that lots of people are za3laneen minee because i havent seen them in ages! I have to say marriage takes up a lot of my time. So let me give you my daily ruotine:

Wake up early go to work. after work i go back home or pass by to get some groceries that i need for the tabkha. By the time i reach i start my tabkha! Then realize that i left a big mess in the kitchen and have to clean it. Then i realize that im so tired and that i can leave a few dishes in the sink till 2moro. Suddenly its a pile of dishes and a pile of clean unfolded laundry in the living room. Then there is the closet that always seems to "yitla3oo masaereeenha". And on week days i feel i can't do all this intensive cleaning. So i wait for the weekend. Ofcourse i have freelance jobs that also require time.

Every friday i go to sharjah to see my family. So i am left with Saturday. Keep in mind throughout the week i have not seen any of my friends or gone out. So saturday is "grocery" shopping day. Getting the basics for survival of the week!

There goes my week. Trip to sharjah in the middle of the week is around 2 hours. so when i leave work at 4:40 i reach there around 6:00 or 6:30. I have work the next day so i leave around 8:00 or 8:30 keeping the 1:30 traffic to dubai in mind . I feel by the time i reached i have to go again.

So people... Give me a break * someone throws a kitkat

that works too :)

Prices = NaaaaR

Global food prices have risen by 40% in the last nine months. That explains why the TWIX bar is now 3 dirhams rather than 1.5 :S

I feel all the prices are going up and the salaries are going down. I remember not so long ago when you had a 100 DHS u felt rich and u could get more than one thing! Now its like you go to buy a few groceries and the bill is more than 300 DHS!

Um il 3abd is complaining and after going to get some rice for her kids found that even the price for RICE has gone up! Her kids sell chewing gum in 2isharat 3abdoon now and they seem to be doing well !

conclusion is akhritna nish7at

Elevator Adventures

Our work is on the 12th floor. So almost everyday i have to go through some sort of elevator adventure. Usually after going around the parking for hours waiting for someone to leave so i can take their parking spot, i run to the elevator and wait there for a few minutes till the elevator yisharif! I start pressing on the button aggressively ( knowing that you only have to press it once) but still bafish khil2i!

Then finally the elevator door opens. Sometimes its full and i have to wait for the next RIDE! and sometimes its empty and each floor it stops to pick up more RUKAAB! Some people see that its full and insist on squeezing themselves in! LIKE HELLO BREATHING SPACE! Some people look at their feet others stare right at you and even when u give them the " stop staring look" they still continue on staring.

Some smell like curry others like fish. Mostly SWEAT! And i am already claustrophobic so i stand there and the trip to the 12th floor feels like the longest 3 minutes of my life.

Some come in with their headphones on and start singing along with the song! Usually they are Filipinos. I think every Filipino or filopiniyeh i have met insists on singing. While they clean they sing. While they walk they sing. Even in the bathroom!

Anyway. My cow has found a job in my building and she is now watering plants in the offices.

Message to the world. When the elevator is full. WAIT for the next one. When you are listening to your mp3 you don't have to sing along and make others suffer. When people faint when you are around it is not because you are gorgeous it is probably because you smell like rotten feet and dead rats!!

*takes breath after saying all that in one breath*
