My cousin left this morning, we miss her already...

My cousin left this morning, we miss her already. She just buzzed me some minutes ago, so that means she's landed safely. Thank God for His mercies. I didn't take my routine road today. The day already began hectic. We finally drove her to the Mall I had wanted her to go all this while- Greenstone Mall, Edenvale. Am glad even though it was unplanned, she still got to look around and have a different scenario. Plus, she got a few items she really liked. In short, it was worth our while. The kids were late for bed as we also dropped-by some friends' within the Edenvale neighbourhood. It was just a courtesy call and everyone was exhausted by the time we got home. I put the kids to sleep and finally got to have  alook at my Blackberry9800...it had been delivered a few hours ealier. It's about time!


I couldn't make dinner as it was late, so we the adults went to bed on an empty stomach. I didn't realise how tired I was until my eyes decided to be closing, even as I expected myself to be thrilled I got my BB...But nature took over. So I decided to let it charge and leave the exploring till today. Well, I haven't been able to set up my email accounts, I've got the weekend to do that; hopefully. I managed to connect with my cousin before she left this morning. That' make it easier to connect with other members of the family with a BB. I told her I wouldn't have opted for another BB, if not for the benefits of connectivity with my younger cousins. It's going to make communication easier and more interesting. I had my eye on LG500-a powerful machine as I refer to it. But hey! BB's going to serve me better, so let me not be selfish with wanting the 'uncommon things'.
I think am going to miss my cousin more when I get home. She would either come to the office with us and move around to the shops, or stay at home till we return in the evening. So it still feels like she's home awaiting our return now. It was really  a good feeling having someone else around for that long.
We should be leaving to get the kids from school any moment from now. So I better pause before am interrupted...TGIF!

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
