The Idiot.

My mother-in-law and sister-in-law live in a city in Kuwait called Mahboula.  It translates to "The Idiot".  Seriously.  There is a story behind it, which I really need to find out.  Their apartment building is a nice location filled with American fare like Krispy Kreme, Starbucks, Johnny Rockets, and the like.  The McDonalds across the street is always busy with cars lining up out to the street for the drive thru.  We are having a good time here with family.  The kids are getting along so well and having so much fun together.  We head to Dubai tomorrow for three nights...I can't wait!

The fun came to a crashing halt last night- literally.  We were driving back from dinner and there was a large accident on the other side of the freeway.  The idiot behind us was so busy gawking at it that he slammed into out car.  Hard.  Thankfully everyone is ok...we went to the hospital just to be sure.  I was worried about the kids, but they are fine.  I think we have a little whip lash...these kind of things seem to appear in the days following an accident.

Hopefully I will get to post more in Dubai...I'm not sure what kind of internet access we will have there in the hotel.  Then on Sunday we head home! 

Until next time...:)

  2. I hope you post pics soon. A friend of mine would love love to go to Dubai. Can't wait to hear more about your vacation.

  3. Oh dear, I'm glad everyone is okay! Did you find out the story behind the Mahboula name? I'm super curious!

  4. So am I. Why would anyone name a city The Idiot? It's rather intriguing. I am very happy to read that you are all okay. Here's hoping that the rest of your trip is uneventful in the accident kind.

    Also a new follower, but can't wait to read some past posts.
