About D

It was years ago during recess at school.  She sat in her usual corner with a book in her hands…that’s what she did most of the time during recess…sit with a book in her hands, alone in her own world!  She read and not a lot of kids dared engage her.  I had two reasons…

Teenagers & Whatnot

March is approaching and I have to say it’s one of my favorite months.  Not only is my birthday in March but my daughter’s as well.  But this post is not about my upcoming birthday or hers.  See I plan to write a letter to my daughter in the coming couple of weeks and I…

Forty and Freaking Fabulous!

I don’t know of any girl who hasn’t dreaded, well ok maybe not dreaded but had strong feelings, about turning forty.  I mean it’s the big 4-O!!! It’s a change of decades that we have been on this earth.  It’s also a change in our metabolism rate, our skin elasticity, our body’s functionality, our mindset,…

Broken Promises

Every time I look at my calendar, I still can’t believe that we are nearing the end of 2016.  I look at my children and I can’t believe how fast they are growing.  I look at myself in the mirror and I can’t believe the increase in the number of wrinkles and white hairs.  But…

My Nano

This entry is dedicated to one of the most honorable women I know…this one is for you Nano!  Words have always failed me when it came to this woman and my relationship with her.  So let’s hope they don’t today! I married almost 13 years ago and moved to Tripoli where my husband is from. …

Me, Myself & I

September is almost over!  It’s been quite the month with settling back into routine after a long summer.  I thought I would let you a bit more into my world by listing some random facts about myself.  So here goes: I delete all kinds of histories: search history, dialed number history, received call history, message and…

Back to School!

September is a busy month for us.  It’s the beginning of a new school year!  And this year is extra special as our little miss sunshine will finally join her brothers.  She went to preschool last year but this is different…this is the official start of her schooling journey!  So this post will be a note…

Sweet September Blues

September is here and I just feel like the days are rolling by too fast.  Lately I have simply lost count of the days and months.  Everyday seems like the one before it and tomorrow doesn’t look too promising.  Okay, so I have been down for the most part of the year.  Why you might…

Hello From The Other Side

  Dear Chiro, I’m writing you this from the future!  How cool is that?  I’m basically you twenty five years later.  So you have basically started your teenage years.  I hope you are doing fine.  I sure miss you!  You won’t understand that now but you will fully get it when you are my age. …

Mr. Asshole & His Mrs.

A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I were talking about this acquaintance we have in common.  Ok so we were kind of gossiping!  Mid way through the conversation, my friend drops a bombshell:  our acquaintance’s husband is cheating on her with girls my friend knows (notice the plural form of girl)! I was…

Motherhood and All That!

What makes a good mother and how do I become her?  And there you have it, the question that plagues all mothers and mothers to be.  I fell into the trap of that question early on in my motherhood journey but I was lucky enough to realize that I don’t want to go down that road. …

Friendships and Miles

I was born and lived for the most part of my life in Lebanon.  And just like any other Lebanese, most of my family and friends live abroad.    Due to the wars, bad economy, political unrest and minimal opportunities, people have always and still are leaving their home to build their future in some distant…
