Back !

I can't believe it has been seven months since I have posted any thing. Life has been speeding,

and I did not have the time and at points the desire to write anything. Time has come to run a quick update and hopefully start posting regularly again.

Hmm where to start? Well the greatest news of all. Mira my daughter has been born on the 12th of Jan 09 at 20:05, I started feeling cramps from the previous day but I acted normally we even stayed out late, I had cramps that woke me up a couple of times during the night. I could not go back to sleep after fajer so I just went to the office and wrapped things up at work and handed over all the issues I was working on, well long story short I delivered Mira that night. I screamed for a c-section, kicked my doctor a few times, but eventually Mira showed up and as soon as I heard her cry for the first time I passed out !

The first week after birth with all the pain, no sleep and hormones I got a depression for about a week to 10 days. After that things started to look better and I no longer felt that my life is over.

During my maternity leave I studied for my PMP exam (Project Management Professional) and I passed from the first time! yay I'm now a mom and a PMP !!

Naturally I have been back to work for about a month now …and have just returned from Cairo ..

I have a lot more to share…. But divide them to several posts, these are just the highlights
PS: This photo of Mira is very recent from our trip to Cairo, I will post more soon
