Back in Canada


Phew am I ever tired!

It was a long trip!

Our flight from Amman to Abu dhabi was great, right on time, the kids were perfect! I did get annoyed with the people at the airport! Why do us women have to leave our luggage all alone to be screened by the machine and then go stand in line to be hand searched! why don't they they just put the search room close to the machine! So annoying!

Abu dhabi airport was so crowded! We did not find any place to sit. We walked and walked! Bilal was very annoying! I kicked myself a million times for not staying at the hotel for those 6 hours! We were so tired, we finally sat on the stairs! Our flight was delayed by 2 hours, then another hour while we sat on the plane waiting for connecting passengers! Then because some idiots were fighting over seats the pilot could not take off while they were standing and arguing! if you boarding pass says seat 38F then sit in 38F, do not go to 34C ...sheesh! Finally the pilot warned them that the airport closes in 10minutes and if they do not take their seats the flight will be cancelled!

The flight was sooo long, almost 15hrs! I watched 2 arabic movies and two american movies, plus some sitcomes. I also slept a bit! I hope I did not snore! I am so tired now!

We have been at my parents house for few hours...

Hubby left Amman on thursday, at 3:30 am, he is still at the airport as I write this! He got to Montreal on Thursday night, and went to the airport to take his flight to Saskatoon on Friday morning! There is a lay over in Toronto. There was a snow storm in Toronto, so his flight was cancelled! He spent an extra night in montreal, and flew to Toronto this morning! Something happened and his flight kept on getting delayed, so he told them to cancel and put him Monday's flight. He is waiting for his friend at the airport to bring him here! Poor hubby, eh?
PS: I am enjoying the warmth here! I am not wearing any socks and only my PJ without any extra shirts....yay!

Ya Sam, I am so sorry I didn't get to see you before you left, I even forgot to call in the midst of snow -craziness.

I'm glad you hear you all made it home safe, the kids let you sleep in the flight. You will be missed here, it was a very fun thing to cross paths in life as well as blogging. god bless you as you re-enter Canadian life!

all those الحمد لله على السلامة reminded me of a very old song by Amr Diab with the same name, if you know it goes for you and your family, but you didn't say anything about the kids spending 15 hours on a plane? I guess they were quiet?

Welcome back to this part of the world! I take it you'll be reading 1984 with us, we haven't started it yet.

Welcome back!
I was wondering if you left without the major snow storm in Amman.
Did you have a Timmy's coffee yet?
