I have two clocks on my computer, one to tell me Amman time and own with Saskatoon time. So I know if I can call my hubby and my family. It was easier counting forward the 9 or 7 hr difference...but it is annoying counting back wards!
People keep on saying wow you have lost a lot of weight! I was so worried i would get the opposite since i gained 4lb over the winter! I have few new favourite people now! But I did lose weight since coming here...my trusty scale that has been traveling with me all over said 125.5lb this morning!!! YIPPY...I have not seen this number since I left Toronto to Amman last summer! Yippy *doing a happy dance*Ok so there is a little voice that says do not be too happy, u have not been working out for 2-3wks , you are losing muscles mass...to that little voice I say shut the hell up!
Today I asked the 7ares to get us solar, since ours was empty and we have been taking cold showers for the past few days....brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. My sister in law is so busy since her daughter’s wedding is on Friday so I did not want to bug her. But now I am worried that he de7ek 3alay. I gave him 100JD to get it filled, and he did it so fast, within 30-40min it was done. He showed me a tank with solar in it, but he could have shown me someone else’s tank. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but my SIL is scaring me now saying that it is very weird that it got filled so soon, and blah blah blah . We will see, I will get my nephew to go down and check it out tomorrow. I hate having to keep on thinking bad of people, but I guess this is how it works here eh?
We got renters for our house, but they have a bad credit. Our last renters we didn’t even check their credit and they were great..the one before had a great credit and made 12k a month, but he still gave us lots of problems with his cheques! So I guess having a good credit does not mean you will never bounce cheques....but to be on the safe side, we’ll pass... While we are on the subject why the heck do people make renters pay everything in advance here?? It is really hard to pay 6000JD all at once...especially when you still have to pay mortgage and rent for 2 other homes and all the savings are tied in stocks and RRSP’S. It is so annoying eh? I say this phrase so much don’t I??
We registered Ziad in school here in Amman. We chose al Omareyah School because it is close and it has a class for none Arab speakers. My sister in law is very upset that we did not register him in an international school where they are taught everything in English, but we want him to learn Arabic, I mean when Arab kids come to Canada they do not go to Arabic schools and they adjust just fine eh? Zozo is very excited about it, he is looking forward to it, I hope the teachers will be nice! I like the fact that the building only has grades 1 through 3. I would not be comfortable with him around older kids!
