Man Purse

One of the things that really annoys me is when the hubby asks me to carry something for him.

It starts with...

"Do you have any room in your purse?"


"Can you fit my wallet?"

"What about my cell?"

Then when we arrive at our destination...

"Can you hold my keys?"

WTF, how big does my purse have to be. To carry my things, the kids items and now the hubby's. I think I need to get a little suitcase to drag along behind me.

In order to stop this now I just make sure I carry a very small purse. The kids things go in the stroller.

So when he asks I can just say in a nice polite tone "Oh sorry no room, you should get yourself a man purse!"

It's My Pity Party & I'll Cry If I Want To

I have a question to ask - when do I get my break?

A lot of my friends, at home in Canada and here in Saudi, have been taking holidays without their kids. They have been going to Mexico, Florida, Bahrain, Dubai, Spain, London. One actually flew from Toronto to spend 2 weeks in Dubai with a girlfriend. This annoys me to no end. There isn't any way I could take off like that.

Reasons are:

1: The money. No way the hubby would let me spend that amount of $.

2. I don't have the child care. The hubby has only spent a few hours alone with the kids no way he would be able to handle a whole weekend or god forbid longer.

3. If I only go out for a couple of hours and the house looks like a bomb hit it, can you imagine how it would be after a few days or a week away.

He has spent weeks alone while I have taken the kids to visit my family in Ireland or returned to Canada for the summer break. I am really in need of some "ME" time. I need to sit and listen to silence. Sleep until late. Eat a meal while it is hot. Read a book. Relax, relax, relax....

I don't know how these women pull it off? Am I missing something??

If you are one that has done it - hate you!!! Kiddin...

If you are like me and have a child with you 24/7, we should plan a pity party.

She's Back...for now

Been away for a while.

It was my son's spring break so I decided I needed to get out of Saudi for a holiday. Went to visit the family in Ireland again. I love it there plus it is a cheap holiday (somewhat) we only have to pay for airfare, which isn't cheap. We had great spring weather and enjoyed our time there. We also had a chance to see some family we haven't seen in years. Sometimes I think I could live there. It is such a nice little village, life seems simple and easy. Altho, the grass always seems greener...

Now that we are back we need to decide if we are staying here or going. We are so on the fence with this. There are pro's and con's with each.

Stay tuned as to whether "Lost in Mommyland" will be relocating...
