Days 3 and 4

I am in so much pain as I write this. But..nothing will stop me from being positive :)

3 am, on the 3rd of August, my sister left to the US. Let me tell you about my sister, she's 18 months younger than I am and we've basically done everything together throughout our lives. She left before alone, but to Saudi Arabia - an 90 minute flight. Never that far; if you know the both of us in person, you would know that this is very hard for me to admit, but I miss my sister.

So day 3: Admitting I am going to miss my sister and painting using watercolors which made me feel like a five year old and I was so happy!

Day 4: Painful, but I went to the dentist and had some way overdue work done on my teeth. What is special about that is 1. I have a fear of dentists, and I went alone. 2. I paid!! Using my very own money (and not my parents') which is a first!

My new friend Lucia gave me an award :) Thank you lovely!

The Versatile Blogger Award

There are some rules to this award:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2. Share seven things about you
3. Nominate 6 newly discovered blogs
4. Let your nominees know about the award! 

7 things about me:
1. I talk to myself in the shower, in the car, when I am alone...etc.
2. I am obsessed with shoes and making a change.
3. I went to Hajj 3 times.
4. I go to my favorite bookstore when I am lonely, or sad..or depressed. I can resist shopping for clothes but never books! 
5. I want to be a professor...or anything academia related.
6. I love food. Both cooking and eating food! 
7. My grandfather was my best friend. Is it okay if I put one more random thing about me? My family and friends mean a lot to me. And I am happiest when I am by the Red Sea/Mediterranean sea/ the Nile and I have the sun in my eyes. 

The new found bloggers I am going to tag are: The Purple Fairy. Chase Simplicity. Triumphs and Blunders of a Kooky Gal. Can I just tag everyone?

I love reading random facts about people...fascinating...I too talk/sing to myself, especially in the car,and I don't care if people see me. I like to think they laugh at me, which is good, because I am making others smile, right!? I am so impressed you've been to the Hajj 3 times, it must be a very impacting experience...I would be intimidated to go, because I don't know a lot about it. How interesting! I love #7 too. I love it...I love everything about it!

Aw, sorry your teeth hurt...please recover soon and FEEL BETTER! My prayers are with you!

Sara dear, I hope you are feeling better. I don't like dentists either, and I have been to a dentists almost every year. My teeth don't like me very much.
Oh, I hope your sister comes back soon. I know the feeling of missing a sister. I still have one sister back home. I can't wait for her to come here.
Thank you so much for the award. I'll get to it very soon.
Have a good weekend.

My sister and I aren't that close, but I do miss her when she's not around. I can only imagine how you feel.

Winnie said...

Aw I understand how you feel. If my sister left for the US now, I would be so sad! We don't always see eye to eye but I couldn't imagine her being in another country!

I am sorry that your sister is in the US and you are missing her, but absence truly does make the heart grow fonder!!! :)

I hope you're doing ok without your sis!! xoxo

Lucia ♥ said...

I am so sorry about the dentist, ouch :( I am the same, I pretty much act like a little kid when I have to go for a check up and feel like crying before my dentist even touches my teeth. Booo T_T

And I also spend more money on books than anything else :) I LOVE them sooo much <3 If I could do one thing only for the rest of my life, I'd pick reading :)

I hope all is okay with you sweety, the intro to this post sounds kind of sad *hugs tight*

Dear Sara, this post really moved me, because:
a) I left my sisters behind in Brazil when decided to live in London so I understand your pain.
b) my daughters are as close in age as you and your sister, and I can't imagine to see them apart.

Is your sis going for a while? On the positive side, things are better nowadays with Skype, Facebook, Blogs etc. I used write letters and they would take 2 weeks to arrive.

Hugs to you

I'm so happy for your sister, but I'm sorry you miss her.
I was reading through some of my old comments and realized I hadn't talked to you in an extremely long time. Lets fix that! :)
