Sign #234 that you are definitely, a Mommy.

Because, let's face it people,
unless you know who Diego is, you are not gonna get this post. I will
try to make it appeal to the masses though.

Last night Ayman, Jennah and I were on my bed and Ayman
was watching Go, Diego Go! He totally loves that show, and as a bonus, I don't find it riduculously annoying. Anyhoo , a few minutes before, I had let him wear my watch, a digital Timex
withindiglo. Well, I was talking to my mom, and sitting with the kids, and I realized Ayman was saying something. I know, it is not unusual for kids to say something. But for Ayman, it is. He is just in the last few weeks, really grasping the
fact that with words, you can ask for and comment on things, or maybe even say "hi" to your Gramma or Grampa. So he is sitting there playing with the wristwatch, and watching Diego, and he kept saying "eesha", and "eesheea".

Then I had a light bulb moment.

Diego talks to his sister via wristwatch video communicator thingie. Her name is Alicia. He was using the watch and trying to call Alicia.

My heart melted right then and there.
I love my boy.

Ramadan Mubarek.

It is that time of year again. Ramadan. I can't believe it. It came so fast. To all you Muslim folks out there-Kol sena winta taybeen.
Tonight I made dinner for the mosque that Amr goes to. It is a small mosque so it turns out I am only feeding like 20 people. Beef, peas, carrots, rice, salad, hummos, pita bread pasta salad (Thanks Gene!) cupcakes, and chocolate cake. Don't think I am not going to get some for myself before it goes out the door. Amr and Ayman will be enjoying it at the mosque, I will eat it here (it is a student mosque, and mens only) and Jennah will be enjoying it thru the boob. Subhan allah.
I went to check out a different school yesterday. I was thinking this last weekend, that there was no way I could go to the school in Sacramento and still have anykind of life. School itself is like, 9 hours, there is three hours commute time as well. That is too long to have my kids being taken care of by someone else, and it leaves me no time to sleep or study, so I will be attending the longer, crappier school, that has better hours (25 minutes away, and 4 hours a day.) now I just have to come up with the money for said school. Apparently you have to live in a cardboard box to get financial aid. I have to come up with 4K myself. So I have been applying for scholarships and loans online. Totally fun. NOT. At least I have some time though-- the school starts in January, but I think I am going to end up going by myself, when before I was planning on going with friends. I don't know if it is going to work for them.
hmmmmm lets see, what else to say? I mean I know I haven't been blogging at all lately, I have been a tad bit busy. Hopefully I will have everything squared away and under control by mid October. What a relief that will be, lemme tell ya.

Tired and lazy makes for bad blogging.

I really haven't wanted to do blog lately. You can totally tell this by lack of posting. I have been doing a lot though. I got braces three weeks ago. And damn. They hurt. I have also been applying for respiratory school. The school is 19 months long. I had to go and look at the school first ( it is an hour away ) and then the next week my friend Nelsy and Sheryl and I went to do the placement testing for it. I did good on the tests so I can enroll in the program. Now I only have to put the rest of my packet together with my resume, and a handwritten essay, along with a letter of reference from a respiratory therapist (which dude, will be so hard. My dad and brothers are RTs and I work with a few of them in the hospital....) anyway. All this with work and two kids. Sometimes I don't really know what to do with myself. It starts at the end of November. It is going to be hard, but it will be worth it. The pay is so much better and I can totally do it. My job right now is going bye bye. The hospital decided to put the phlebotomists, under the supervision of the nursing department. They have to change our job description, and we have reapply for our jobs. I don't really want the new job though. It will be more work for a job that I didn't sign up for in the first place. I am going to see if I can collect unemployment if they eliminate my job and change it, why not? I bet I wouldn't be able to though. But if I could that would be a dream. And, ideal for a school schedule. Eh. Whatever. I am just tired. Friday night there was like 4 codes in the hospital, two of them in the er. The Dr working was a total tool and I was running my ass off all night. He almost intubated a 95 year old man with a DNR. The dude had some last wishes. He was lucky his daughter was there to make sure they were observed or that doc would have intubated him for sure. Jerk.
On a happier note, I got front row seats for Kathy Griffin. It is on November 29th.
I am going with my mom and sis in law. And you know what is cool? I saw her at that time last year too. Something to look forward too. Well I am gonna go now. I have heartburn and I am pooped out.

Here we have brother and sister bonding time in Mommy and Daddys big bed. Jennah is a half second away from totally crying.
