Should I or Should I not?

I'm sure many of our makcik & kakak bloggers, pakcik & abang bloggers residing in Klang Valley are looking forward to the very gathering as proposed by Mrs.Nordin (you can read the invitation here). I do too. Heard that some even took the trouble to buy & even make a new attire. How sweet...! Of course... isn't first impression the utmost important? ;-)

I was in doubts though. No! Not doubting meeting all of you... I always look forward to have the chance making my virtual friends tangible. Just that the date is not convenient to me & not fair to HB especially.

If you've been following my blog, you should know the nature of HB's work. He is seldom home. It is whenever he's away that I take the opportunity to have the time to myself. Name it... hang out with my friends, enjoy a relaxing spa & facial, retail therapy... hehehe or even blogging. Whenever he is around, we spend quality time together. With or without the girls.

We are so comfortable with such arrangement for almost 11 solid years. Yes, this Sunday the 21st is our 11th wedding anniversary. And... unlike last year, it is his off day this Sunday. We have the chance to celebrate together without any rain check or whatsoever.

The gathering mentioned earlier will also take place this Sunday. True that HB plans to take me out for dinner that night. I am sort of available in the afternoon. But leaving him with the girls at home? Or worse, let him take the girls out with my helper tagging? That is not the picture I like on my anniversary!

I choose to stay. Knowing him, he may have other impromptu plans. Normally, they will include the girls which after a decade I am so used to having them as a part of our anniversary celebration...

To my friends in blogsphere, I am sorry I have to turn down this opportunity. The chance to put faces to your familiar names, to open up my arms & replace the many cyber hugs I posted. Do me a favour though.... snap as many photos possible & update on the get together ASAP ;-)

Have a wonderful time!! Jealous nye.....!

Hey, you don't have to explain why you can't make it... and don't feel sorry for it. It's not your fault!I'm sure there'll be many more gatherings after this which you can attend.

As for this Sunday, you just have a good time with your hubby and kids. Happy 11th Anniversary in advance!! Take care!

jabishah said...

Hi Jaanvi,

Take care.

Leen dear,

I were to go I doubt I'd stay long pun knowing mir is not at work. You know me right? Am so used doing my things whenever he's away. Nanti asik la pikir, dah mkn ke, dah bgn tidur ke, boring ke, all that sorts la. What to do..? I pamper him too much.

Hahaha.. you were one of those posmen karats ek? One of these years I have to invite & thank all my posmen2 karat lah.. Hahahaa! Anyway, tx for doing a good job then ;-)

Mshart,

Of course that was the best choice.. kan? There will be other gatherings but there will only be one 11th anniversary? Issh... kena cari baju baru jgk ni. You all jgn lupa dress up, I nak cari something yg dress little.. Hahahaaha!

Kak Teh said...

Hi Kak Teh,

Thank you. A belated wish for you too. Wow.. 29th. Many happy returns.

jabishah said...

Fiza,

Ishh... itu very the exclusive. Only for my eyes to see Jemir merajuk.

Celebrate? Mesti... Budak2 dah posted pi rumah my bro ni. Tinggal Nadeen je. Hmm... mana nak merendek ni. Best! Tak payah kena soal jawap dgn the girls.
