I want a new theme!


I was so excited about this theme when I first got it but now… meh… I need something fresh. Something clean. Something fun!

Should I pay for one? Make it myself? I don’t think I have time or patience for that, right now. My Conversational Arabic class is taking all my brain powers lately.


I wonder what Huey Lewis would say?

I’M Baaaaccccckkkkk!



Well, kind of. I’m here now, anyways.

Let’s see… what’s new? Im still living in Saudi Arabia, in fact we just had our third Saudiversary! WooHoo! **Cheers and Shouts. Balloons and birds released. Cake for all. All that cheerful celebration stuff.** I figure I might as well have fun and maybe learn something while I am here so I have signed up for Conversational Arabic! It’s tough, man, and I have only had two classes! I can now curse at my mom and dad… I mean Ummii and Abii. Not really, but I can tell them hello and goodbye. And ask for their pencil. That’s almost the same thing.

Repat is 18 days away. I.cannot.wait.

Hmm. Whatelse…

We got a fish for my little guy. He’s the worlds oldest goldfish, at five years old. We’ve kept him alive for about two months now but every night I look at him and wonder how much longer he can survive and how messed up am I going to be running out to the store to find a new goldfish and if Damian will KNOW that we killed his fish? I should probably just be happy he’s still alive and buy him a cake, huh?

Speaking of Damian, he’s starting K4 next year. I’m excited and bummed at the same time. I was hoping he would stay little just a wee bit longer.

OH! We have decided to go to Oktoberfest in Munich this year!! I can’t wait!!!

Wow, this might actually be a real post? Kind of, almost?

Yay me!

New Laptop


As you can tell (if there is anybody actually reading these posts, that is) it’s been awhile since I have updated. BUT! That is about to change!! Yessureebob-ish! Why? Well, because I have a new laptop! No more updating via iPad (because that sucks!)

A new Macbook pro 15 inch would prompt ANYbody to post, right?! Can I get an AMEN? Thank you!

In fact, since I want to get those old posts from my now defunct dianaslife.net account, I might want to get them while I am in the States and actually have a decent internet connection. So… quickly.

Yep, I am in the States! Houston, TX, at the moment, and will be in New York and Maine next week. Then back to Houston for a few days before we fly back to KSA.

I can’t say that I miss KSA really, but i miss having a routine and the friends that we have made there. Tho, at the moment, most of those friends are in their home countries right now as well. As soon as we get back I will start counting the days until our Christmas break. I can promise you that. And missing pork. Since arriving home (June 6th), we have gone through 1 lb of bacon. Isn’t that ironic? I think so, too, so I will just leave you with this…

I haven’t posted in over a year! What happened to my determination? My desire to get my blog back on track? WHAT HAPPENED?!?

Well, since you won’t answer me, all I can do is start fresh. No promises, but I’m going to try. Again.

I kind of like this template, what do you think? My old one is my favvvvvvorite but I can’t format it to fit WordPress. Maybe I could hire someone to do it for me?

Ummm… letsee… nothing much is going on lately.

I still live in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia with a home base in Houston, TX (USA, Baby!) I am married (5 years), have four kids aged 25, 23, 21, and 2 (yes, you read that correctly). I have a grandson by 23 yr old daughter. Its funny, I never knew you could love someone so freaking much that you were not either married to or gave birth to, until him. I’ve considered telling people that I have five kids, one is grand. Hehe.

No pets.

We did move into a new house on compound. We were in a two bedroom and now we have four! Huge difference!

We went home for Christmas, of course, but for some reason we never got jet lag when we came back to KSA! I have no idea why. I’m not complaining but it would be nice to know, so we can do it again! Not even Damian got jet lag! So weird!

How sad is that? I just about summed up a year in a single, SHORT 271 word post!

Lets see if I can do this again tomorrow and maybe get a few more words typed 😉
