News from Egypt isn't very good today. Infact, it's horrible.
We are OK, alhumdulillah. Yesterday, we made it out to the mall and finally got Mr. Boo's Ipad games loaded. He's been happily absorbed in that. We picked up some food. I got the Mad Men Second Season DVD.
And...we're all sad. There's the sadness about what happening outside. There's sadness that my brother-in-law's wedding party might be cancelled. There's sadness that I was supposed to return to work in three days and now what?
It's hard for me to call up my mom and tell her what's going on while being both informative and reassuring. It was writing to my father that made me cry as I signed off. No, I don't like being disconnected from my family during such a turbulent time. I don't like being here at this moment. I'm tired of Egypt suffocating itself with its own tear gas.
I am not going to update the blog every day to let you know that we're OK. Check my Twitter feed. I usually do tweet something daily. Some of what I'll be tweeting will be upsetting. Sorry. It's an upsetting time. I do want to keep this blog from being too fraught. I've always wanted to keep it free from too much turmoil. My Twitter account, on the other hand, is different.
Don't worry for us. Worry is a prayer for chaos. Instead, pray for us and pray for Egypt.
Thank you for any and all good thoughts.
