It has rained every.single.day.this.week. I now have a throat infection and little to no sleep is not helping matters. But the kids are doing okay on their tests. I think Mohamed has some concerns about his Advanced Algebra/Calculus test from today. Tomorrow is a day off. It is 25 January and the one year anniversary of the biggest youth uprising ever in Egypt that eventually succeeded in forcing Mohamed Hosni Mubarak to step down from his 30 year sham of a presidency. (Yay, Egyptians!) And because we are still living under military rule until elections are complete in June, God willing, we expect that there will be demonstrations tomorrow but whether or not the thug factor pushes these demonstrations into something more, God only knows.
So, Thursday we expect to finish the testing. And then I will be able to sleep in until I wake up on my own. You know, providing that my kids don’t decide to get up at the crack of dawn to start fighting over whose turn it is to play on the computer first and for how long. I’m so looking forward to NOT getting up before 7 in the morning. We’ll see how it plays out.
Yeah, my blog posts are getting boring of late….but what do you do? These exams are sucking the life out of me. Here’s hoping I at least have some weight loss due to the nerve-induced diarrhea.
