Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that there are not many birds in Amman? At home when I’m up early I hear a lot of bird songs, churb churb...This morning I was up since 6:15 am and we were downstairs waiting for my youngest son’s bus where there are few trees at the entrance and did not run into any birds not even one churb...where are the birds?
Also there are no flies!!!! Or beetles...I have forgotten the screen door open all day and not even one fly came inside and no beetles and other nasties dropped in like they would in Canada! Now I like that! But I’m so jinxing myself, I’ll bet as soon I publish this I’ll find a fly! But I do have lots and lots of ants! They are so annoying! But I guess they are less annoying that flies and other bugs...So I’ll take ants over others bugs any day.
In other news...I took the kids to dream park? in Amman mall this weekend...they had a blast. I promised I’ll take them every Friday if we are not going to a farm or something else with my sister in law. I love the streets on Fridays! The streets were not too busy and we were able to walk to the mall without any stress. Of course Bilal got tired, but it was ok. He was good and held my hand the whole time and did not do his annoying lay on the ground so mommy can not make me hold her hand bit.
We are so going to be screwed when our long distance bill comes. We are waiting for our Vonage device to come. We got 2 for my sister in law last year for her son so he can talk with his fiancé while he was living in Saudi while she was in Jordan in order to cut long distance calls, at the end it cost over 700JD and they did not used it!
So now one is in Saudi Arabia and one is here in Jordan. hubby's nephew's wife's family have the one in Jordan and they do not want to give it to us! I asked his wife for it and she did not bring it, even though she is in the building visiting the neighbours everyday. We have deactivated it last year so the device is useless to them, but she won’t give it to me...I do not get some people!! So now we are waiting for the one in Saudi Arabia. Hopefully she will send it soon.
When we get it we can talk as much as we can. We get unlimited calls for $40 month so we will be able to talk to hours. Right now we are being dingy and making our phone conversations quick and to the point, and still talking for 40-60min a day. I hope the device would get here ASAP! I will need to get a land line and a good DSL connection.
