Married with Children / Commissions?

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 12, 2010, 7:13 PM
"Hey pal, i gotta wife an' two kids" (now i can finally say that line!)

It's worth every bit of effort, especially when they start running to you for hugs after you come home from work. So far only one is doing that while my other one is only 3 weeks as of tomorrow, but i have similar experiences with my nephews and niece down in Jersey.

I have taken 10 days off to help my wife, so right now i am in charge of cleaning, cooking (yes i can cook), and looking after our oldest, Maryam.  I will go back to work soon and have some new stuff to post shortly.

I never doubted my wife worked hard at home, and I didn't underestimate it either. We have no family close by so we have to do it ourselves which is nice in a way.

Possibly the hardest part of this whole thing is watching my little 21 month old Maryam getting over the fact she isn't #1 and only anymore, and has to share her mommy and 'dad-doon' with Zainab. She is getting better though and she gets the diapers for her mommy and disposes of the spent ones, and give Zainab a kiss goodnight as well.

Good signs, lets hope it keeps up!


I might be opening for commissions of specific nature and i will have more details to come. I might cave into pressure and open a paypal account.

Ben Jonas of the US of A, yours is first in line though, so don't worry. I will be going to NJ some time in December so i might just mail them from there instead.

5th Capsule

On another note I am itching to do 5th capsule and have a whole bunch of maps i have never uploaded. If i did they would get all of 3 hits for sure, because who cares about maps right? I swear i should have been a cartographer.

I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Congradulations, but I have to ask how do you find time for it all? I'm doing animation as my major and I haven't been able find time for my self outside of work. I'm sure it gets better after I'm finished with college, but even still.
