Well, its confirmed.
We got Azam registered in a school yesterday. All school fees paid for and the deal is sealed. No turning back because it will mean we will lose our RM5,000 deposit.
So, come January 2011, anak mami will be a temporary johorian for at least 7 years!!
Sigh. Honestly, I would like to stay back here for the two years of Azam's schooling and join my husband once Azam is in University. Zaki's posting to JB has now been extended till he retires, unless something else crops up. Not that we have never done long distance marriage .. our first few years together, he was sailing and I see him every 4 months for one month. Now we get to see each other every other week. But being "on land" for so many years has made my husband manja!
But we've always believed family should be together. This time we made an exception giving Azam the priority to choose and if he had chosen to school here, I would be commuting up and down jb every other weekend which is not a problem for me .. my PB is 3 hours house to house LOL. (drive not lari ok)
But chosen the new school in JB he did. In his own words "I want to try something new". Arlina will be doing her practical from January - April 2011 then she's out in the working world and Yana will stay in hostel and both will come back to us during their breaks.
So, you guys wont see much of me next year, no more this anak mami kiasu-ing at runs or gatherings .. but we have facebook and blogs , sms and yahoo chats to keep in touch (zaki and ijam, kena buat fb nih) but insyaallah I will come back for some runs, even if I dont run .. the ones that is close to my heart and where most of you will be taking part !
And if all things goes well, FMV banner might be "official" during SCKLM 2011 :) will keep you guys posted on this once things get going.
I was looking at the calendar and realised I cant fit in any weekends for an RBU gathering this month, so my farewell do for you guys will have to be done next year , I will choose one weekend he he ..
I am so gonna miss everyone.
