Thread: Back in Bahrain and back online

    Back in Bahrain and back online

    Hi everyone,

    I'm back in Bahrain (for a short while it seems) and after a few days of begging and pleading managed to get my internet switched on again.

    It's late here, and I desperately need to catch up on some sleep.....but a quick uppiedate:

    - we are all well - just very stressed
    - Warren has still not found a job
    - if nothing comes up by the end of June we will be heading back to SA (cant' stay here with no money coming in and our savings are running low)
    -have been hoping Warren will find another job here, as if we go back to SA will have to stay with friends for at least 6 weeks until our furniture etc arrives. Will be horrible "camping out" in peoples lounge etc as no-one has a big enough place for us all
    - my folks told us it's "not a good idea" for us to stay with them - still trying to deal with that shocker!!
    - it's horrible walking into my house here, and seeing everything we haven't sold packed in boxes, plus no cats around
    - because of all the disruptions Cam's final exams were really hard, so he probably won't get into uni for 2008....still trying to sort out an alternative
    - don't have any medical insurance etc here, so not a good situation for any of us (but especially Cali)

    Jennie and Jen - your parcels arrived. I am simply amazed at your generosity, and will send you both a PM as soon as I have a sec

    Jennie - will PM you re Ally also - I am so sorry about her biting you. I honestly don't know what to say, I just feel terrible

    Cheryl - will PM you re Connor ASAP also.

    Thanks Kay for my great sig & avatar!!!

    It's good to hear from you. I feel sorry for all the disruption in the
    family situation. This must be so hard on everyone. I've been reading
    the updates on Ally & Conner here in the Us. I do so hope something
    changes in the job & housing situation very soon.

    Julie - I wish we had a PTr in SA with a big house!

    Is there someone/where in Bahrain you can stay while your furniture is shipped, so you don't have to stay with friends in SA for a long time?

    HUGS and PRAYERS...soon you and Warren and Cam will be starting over again, and you know what? That could be the most wonderful thing ever!

    Good to hear from you. I am sorry you are still in a rough patch. I hope things will get better for you and someday you will have your kitties back with you. But for the time being, they are in good hands.
    You and your family will be in my thoughts.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I think all of us are so happy to hear that you are alright.

    A round of PT prayers are in order that Warren will soon find a job and you can settle down and take it easy for a while.

  12. Julie...good to know you are safe and out of what sounded quite awful. My thoughts are with you for a fast resolution to your situation...
