D-Day past... ! :)

50 spams in my Gmail box, 16 unread emails in my Hotmail box, and many unread emails in Yahoo, including a relatively urgent professional one!! These are signs of complete disconnection for me! The reason? I talked about it in my previous post: my sister’s wedding took place a few days ago!!

Now that the wedding is over, our main activity at home is watching the DVDs and the pictures over and over again, commenting on the way the wedding went, trying to remember details. I never imagined how overwhelmed you can be when you organize such an event until I experienced it in fact.

Now if I have learned anything from this, it must be the fact that whenever I am invited somewhere, I should always understand my hosts if they don’t pay enough attention to me or to one of my guest relatives, or if the
y don’t seem calm enough at certain moments. Being a guest is a wayyyy different experience from being a host!!! (Reference to Naima Samih’s “li ma ye3der, daba yettebla” lol)

Anyway, the celebration went well lhamdullah – a rewarding ending for all the efforts before, during and after. A special bravooooo to you cousinino (l’homme des missions impossibles lol) who came from overseas specially for the wedding. A special thank you for all those who came although they were working the day after! (and naturally for those who came from all over Morocco)!

And I was so happy to have you there you ktikita who stayed only a few minutes – I totally understand! And I will never thank you enough SABA for all what you did!!! (How nice to live that zombie experience with you lol). As for you my dear khwalati, your support was really precious !! "Iwa Manal bentna," you would reply :) Allah ykhellikoum lina kamlin :)

Yallah, enough with thanks now, and time for wishes!!

To the gorgeous

Manal & Amine

I hope your life together will be inshaAllah as beautiful as you always wished, and more...

Allah ye7fedkoum :)

“D-day minus” mood

Dima and many others made the same remark: I have disappeared immediately after adding blogging to my biggest addictions. I disappeared mainly because July was a special month. It was a typical “D-day minus” month:

In July there was my driving licence exam (which I failed by the way lol), so a second D-day exam is coming; (hope I won’t fail this time too :D)

In July there was a training tempting me to discover new career horizons; (no changes are expected soon though)

In July a coincidence led me to discover the existence of a relative I never knew about (a D-day must come soon on which we will meet)

In July contact was re-established with a dear friend who had completely disappeared in the noise of the city;

In July some goodbyes were about to happen; others did happen (All the best A.)

In July other goodbyes have been set for next year inshaAllah, with all the D-day minuses they will bring; (Allah yjib li fiha lkhir)

In July two friends of mine started waiting for important news that must come on a near D-day (Allah ysemme3na khbar lkhir)

In July my sister fixed the D-day on which she will no longer be my roommate, because she will found her own new family.

These were the sources of my “D-day minus” mood in July, but I’m sure the list is not complete. Everyday is a “D-day minus” for something we know or most probably don’t.

Good luck with your D-day Minuses!
