We’re here now for almost 2 weeks and a lot of people asked for an update, so here we go….
First and for all I also got some remarks about the fact that my shopping lists contained a lot of items and some had the mention 2 pieces 3 pieces. I was told that was impolite. I don’t ask anybody to bring me the list. The mention of several pieces was due to the fact that my friend gave me a budget and some items were cheaper when you get 3pieces so it matched the budget. Again I just copied the lists didn’t adjust anything.
Now back to business the trip to Çivril…. As we suspected the trip was hard on the kids. So hard that a bit after İzmit we decided to take a Burger King dinner break, play outside till evening prayers and continue our trip afterwards. It was a great decision since shortly after continuing both kids fell asleep. For me honestly it was hard leaving the house where I was so happy. I cried for about an hour after we left after that I said okay it is what it is. My husband prayed all the way here for a solution and at each crossroad he wanted to turn back.
We’re staying at his parents house, due to conflicts with his father we decided to return to Istanbul ASAP. We’ll finish the work we have to do here and hopefully find a decent job in Istanbul so we can return. It’s hard here. In the past few days temperatures went down fast and it’s cold very cold. The room where we’re staying is freezing cold at night. We have a little heater, but it doesn’t help a lot. Anyway thing will get better soon İnşallah.
