The Date!

I think most of my ever faithful followers readers would probably know about me uprooting the whole family to go to a foreign land in the middle east, Q@t@r (I guess I need to put the @ thing eh?) If you are my new cult follower, you might want to read about my arduous decison here (Name this country and A Letter to Lollies Lover and This Whole Thing About Qatar). Otherwise just take my word for it that I shall be leaving to Qatar soon.

Those who know, and probably are genuinely going to miss actually having to see me everyday or miss having the notion that I shall not be blogging from Malaysia anymore, have been asking me, when am I actually going.

May I digress? I have learned not to be annoyed or afraid of people asking me the "when" questions. Unlike my lover. He has not mastered the art of accepting and answering the question.

I got engaged with my lover in September 1995 and got married in May 1997. I have endured the question of when are you getting married esecially from my parents who wanted me to marry as soon as possible. Urrgghhh

I got married in May 1997. Some people expect that you should conceive preferbally on the day you first make out with your lover. I remember the face of many makciks looking at me coming out from my room that morning. You know the morning when we are an actual husband and wife. Eeeii makcik-makcik ni, entah apa dalam kepala dia orang ni agaknya. I conceived, I think later in the same year.

Then while being pregnant, people are asking me, how many months are you on. And the child's sex. And when are you going to pop. I have been pregnant three times.

Then you have one child. And people are asking you, when is the next one.

Now that I have three kids, people are still asking me, when is the next one.

But people now have new questions for me. So when are you going to Q@tar?

My lover, who was at hist wits end since he has not received his visa yet and it has been seven months ago since the interview, couldn't face the deadly question.

But, me, I, Lollies can because Lollies is used to question. Lollies answer question gracefully for she is a true princess. I am actually greatful for the question because I know people love me. People ask because they care. Okay! Shut up for people who ask but just for the fact they only wanted my room in the office and my great car park (did I mention that the lady who took care of the office car parks actually gave me a great space because..I don't know why..because of nothing actually. No special favours. She just wanted to give it to me)..but as for other people, thank you for the concern.

Did I also mention to you that I babble when I am nervous or trying to divert your attention elsewhere. Hoping that you are bored with all these and would hit the comment box and not notice what I would be typing after this. We got our visa yesterday and would most likely be leaving on the 12th December. Why do I do that..because I do not want you to see me sad.

I am going to type some more since I am sure you are going to miss that paragraph. So, anyway, looking at the date it is very likely that I won't be able to make it on the third modbloggers meet up which I am already sad about. Elisa would be there so I can't hear from he about Al Khob@r. And I am sure it would be a blast. I think Nutty would be there too.

I am thinking about my parents alot and I am getting a big headache since yesterday. A real headache. You get that when you cry too much and also when you are trying to stifle a cry.

My lover's mum, my mother-in-law, was admitted to the hospital for short of breath last night. This is her second time. The last one was on the last fasting month. Not this year, the one before.

I think someone else in my household will also get a headache.

I love y'all.

The time has come :) Brace yourself!

Wahhh camni boleh la I gi Qatar to visit you Insyallah! Will let you settle down for a few mths first ;0

And the question parts yes you managed to capture it all in a nutshell! Good for you coz you can answer them all! Because I can't! I freak out! Which is why I refrain from telling people anything until I know it for certain, by which time they then get upset because I didn't tell them earlier! heheheh. But what to do, like your hubby questions freak me out! ;)

Pack well.

Lollies said...

elle - betul tu gak ek? the only thing is, I hope to get a line and a computer quickly.. and no I don't want a laptop.

SF - betul tu..come come visit me...and and if i got my driving license and a car, we can drive, drive..and maybe just maybe I let you hold the steering for a while.
