So, umm… September?

Let’s see, where did September go…

Part of it was in the US, where I met up with Owlie and Momma and the rest of mi Familia, and had an awesomely crazy time hanging out with Selina and meeting Yasmine and Anju and a massive slew of other people at ISNA. Also, got horribly sick, and crash Baji’s place in DC where Khalid threw up on her couch. Ah, good times…

There is a lot about the US trip that I just can’t remember anymore, and it’s fading even faster now that I have new memories from NZ to forget too! But there were some highlights, specifically, my heroes.

My Amtrack Hero: For doing the 45-min wait at the ticket counter (the man in front of me was trying to get 50% off his ticket with a voucher they had never seen before) and then the mad rush to get on the train with one baby, one car seat, one stroller, and two suitcases just three minutes before the train departed all while dodging unfriendly co-passengers in a crowded train station- Owlie is my Amtrack Hero. As well as my Chicago Chauffeur, as well as my darling and my hamburger. And I miss her lots and lots. And I hope you Bostonians are taking good care of her because otherwise THERE IS GOING TO BE TROUBLE! (I’ll send Khalid to throw up on your couches, nya!)

My DC Heroes: For coming back on his lunch break to take snotty, sick, fevery cranky Khalid and I to DC Children’s Hospital so Khalid could see a doctor, as well as grab our extra suitcase from the Amtrack station, all while providing gourmet culinary support (fabulous, fabulous omlette and salad) TP- Baji’s husband, is one of my DC Heroes. The other is Baji herself, who braved traffic and pregnancy-brain to pick us up from the airport, provide us awesome hosting, leave us notes and maps, pick up prescriptions and order us take-out. Baji is my other DC Hero. You guys renew my faith in humanity. Please come to Dubai, please. There’s a huge kindness that’s dying to be repaid.

My Chicago Hero: Selina is my Chicago Hero, for being the most accommodating hostess, shopping buddy, and junk-food connoisseur- in one breakfast we had muffins, donuts, pastries, cereal… as well as rides all over the place, and directions when we got lost, and complete dominion over her living-room. >>>hugs<<< Selina, you are just too lovely. 🙂 And now that I can’t remember anything else, and also because Khalid is asleep, I end this post now with a promise to update again soon, and next time, it’s going to be pretty darn amazing. I promise. Trust me. 😉 Over & Out!
