Things have been a bit crazy the last two weeks.Emotions ran from been scared,excited,frustrated,really tired (from packing and cleaning) to a slight bit of disappointment.
Why the disappointment?My kids were hoping for more action regarding the protests so they had an excuse to return home faster.In my opinion, I don't think it will happen.Damascus,meaning the capital is quiet and everybody is doing their own thing.No one wants any trouble.
All the problems which are happening are on the outskirts of Syria.So, school is normal,exams are coming up again and all the kids plus parents will be busy.
The three older girls have been so busy packing , sorting and spicing up their travel bags,I think they will be lost as what to do next!!!!
Of course, for me, the work is never ending... my three smaller ones make sure of that.
I took my girls to the dentist for their braces check up and it was so strange,people were busy and families were all heading to the parks.No signs of panic or even the presidents face or flags.(seen enough in the last week).
All in all, things are good and hope it stays that way.I am still suppose to stay at home so,only going out for emergencies.
Sid needs to see the dentist.My poor baby has so much side efforts from her treatment she had.All coming out in her teeth.We anticipated this and doctors warned us about it.Alhumdulillah, it's her teeth and not something else.One can always get a new set of teeth.!!!!!
I had and Arabic exam this week.Alhumdulliah, got 93/100 which is pretty good.My teacher said we do tests more often to make us stronger.She has a point ,but my brains can only take so much.
Arabic is not an easy language to learn.I always though,if I lived among the people and spoke as much as I could it would come easily.
No such luck for me.It has been really hard work.Insha-Allah we will be rewarded for our efforts.Ameen.
Since I wrote this last entry which I thought was lost as the lights went out,Syria is again moving.Lots of rumors,so we don't know whats true.
I dont know how thing will go.kids only have one month until final exams.Sad thing is if they don't sit for the last exams they loose the whole year.Making dau we can stay till end of May.
Requesting for lots of duas.
