Yesterday (Wednesday) saw Sharon and I shopping at Carrefour and Fathalla. After we finished shopping we had a bite to eat and then we went to see a movie - The Tale of Despereaux. It was all right - but not one of my favourites. Aymn called while we were out and he said he will not be back for at least another week - I figure it will be closer to two weeks. Told him I was heading to Ain Sokhna on Friday and would appreciate getting my 'allowance' - guess what - I have not heard from him today - so do not think I will be getting my allowance until after he is back. I am not all that surprised - but I am tired of his empty promises. After the last time he promised that he would NEVER leave me short again - and I thought to myself - yep - until next time. Did not have long to wait.

Last night I went out with Suzanne and bought myself a new shower head - was tired of the trickle that was forthcoming from the old one - works better - but I still have problems getting the heat of the water adjusted - I either freeze or fry - ARGH. Also bought some more karkadee - just about out.

Today I woke up early to chat with my mom as I was unable to chat with her very long last night as I had a date with Suzanne - but of course my internet did not cooperate. I was very busy today - did two loads of laundry, made whole wheat pita's, baked buttertart squares (Margaret requested these), made banana loaf last night, made bruschetta and popcorn for in the car. Even managed to get the dishes all done up. I even managed to water the garden - since I am leaving tomorrow and will not be back until Wednesday - the garden should be watered before I get back - but such is life - will have to go without. Now all I need to do is pack and I want to take some of the stuff downstairs tonight so I do not have to pack so much tomorrow morning. We will be heading out at 7 a.m. - hoping to miss the bulk of the traffic in Cairo - since we will hit Cairo before prayers and it is usually pretty quiet on Friday until after prayers.

Do not think I will be posting while I am away - but will certainly be taking my camera - so hope to have some pics to post next week when I get back.

Maybe this is a stupid question... But why are you with someone, IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY, who barely has any time or respect for you?

You seem like a very genuine and honest person, and deserve better. I just can't fathom why.

But I am sure love conquers all. But how can you even be in love with someone you barely see?

I miss Margaret and Moustafa! Please tell them hello for me. I think of the day we spent with them quite often! Swimming in the Red Sea. Enjoy!

Hi

Just stumbled on your blog. Very fascinating, but no enough time to catch up on all your back posts. How did you end up a co-wife? Do you like it? Looks like you've stuck with it for 2 years - wow! How do you like Libya?
