The Weekend Between Heaven & Hell

June 30, 2008  |  Weekend

The weekend was really insane, I had fun and I was depressed as well.  Let’s start off by Thursday evening, I went back home at around 6:30 and decided to nap for a short while before Noor came on.  I woke up, mother was sick and stubborn about going to the doctor, however at midnight we ended up taking her to Mowasat which is crap by the way and I spent my night there until 4am when I got back home and into my bed.  What a way to start off the weekend right?

Friday, I had my colleague’s wedding to go to, she’s Egyptian so the wedding was mixed and damn was it a lot of fun! Early Friday I went out to get me something to wear and I decided on the white dress that you see above.  It’s the first time I got to attend a different wedding, hell I don’t go to wedding’s much but I am wishing that mine is like hers really.  In our Kuwaiti weddings, the bride basically just sits there and people dance in front of her or stare at her, as if she’s a movie or something.  Whereas, their wedding the bride is more interactive she gets to dance, all the guests get to dance with the bride and groom.  They have a slide show showing the bride and groom when they were young all the way to when they grew older.  They get to have lots of fun.  A wedding is about the bride and groom having fun not the guests really so I really  want mine similar to that.  All in all it was the best day I had in a long time, being with my work family and having fun at the same time!

Saturday, Grandma’s lunch and a day that was spent playing with the Nintendo Wii and going down to the beach and having some fun.  The kids swam in it, whereas I just walked into it and stood there, it was AWESOME! I relaxed but the heat was unbearable, we went around 5pm right before the sundown.  So in a way my weekend was in between but I did not have enough sleep, I have 4 days left therefore I am saving that up until later!

P.S. Mother got better by Friday.
