Days 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9!

Day 5: I went to beautiful Alexandria and saw my second cousin who I hadn't seen in such a long while!

Day 6: Woke up to a beautiful, beautiful view. The Mediterranean. And I went shopping- I spent so much money but then it's okay, I guess...

Day 7: I spent time with my dad. Which I haven't done in so long as well!

Day 8: Was the sweetest girl's birthday, Mae, you're beautiful and you are blessed with people who love you. You shine!

Day 9: I emailed one of my very best friends from school who I very rarely see, since I have changed my number and I heard he was here in Cairo...he called me!! I hung up and jumped around the room and was overwhelmed with happiness honestly. I had a heart-to-heart with my best friend for the first time in a relatively long time and I just feel so relieved and like a huge load (and barrier) has been lifted.

It's day 10 and I am stuck at work until 7...tomorrow is Ramadan; a whole month of fasting until sunset, no morning coffees and even more conjested traffic. But, it's so much fun!! It's the month of huge gatherings, rooftops with friends, and lots of good food. I am actually getting quite excited (apart from the fact that on Thursday, I am going to the dentist at 3 and will have to do without pain killers until 8ish..that would be my 3rd visit...root canal, I know..)

Something is wrong with my computer/internet connection..it won't upload any photos..and the post looks odd. OH, I almost forgot to mention that one of my two gorgeous bosses' booksigning was yesterday! Go check her blog out!

Now you can see why I love my job! (apart from the boss ladies and a senior researcher, we are a team of 87ers!! Of which I am probably the only one who hasn't turned 23 yet..)

Oh so happy you are so happy! And that is so cute! You jumped around the room when your friend called you!? I remember I had a HUGE crush on this boy and I had called him, and immediately hung up (I was like 16 at the time...haha) and I remember when he called me back I was so excited I jumped and tripped over a table! Haha. But he ended up being the first love of my life. I'm happy your post reminded me of that today :)

You can't take pain killers during Ramadan!?????? You can have the anesthetic though right? Cos the thought of a root canal with no pain relief just makes me want die!

Taylor said...

hi friend! Ramadan sounds like something I would be bad at! No morning coffees!? But besides the fasting, it sounds like a wonderful holiday - spent with family and friends and food! (Perfection!) I hope you enjoy every day of it!

Ramadan Karim! I'm touched!

May you have more and more sensational days as the countdown to your birthday continues.

Oh, I completely agree! I just wanted a bit of freshness, so I was deleting some old posts that had no sentimental value or importance whatsoever. Announcements and such.
xoxo!

Sounds like you're having so much fun! I really would love to visit that part of the world :)

We are only human, this is true. And we are made imperfect and we will always be imperfect until we get our new bodies and are with God, but as much we we are human, we need to think about how God feels when we turn away. He weeps for us, and I can't stand the thought of Him weeping.

I love that each day has brought new possibilities. It sounds amazing!

You sound really happy too :) It's pretty awesome that you were nearly all born in '87.

A root canal with no meds. You brave girl! Sounds like you've been having a fabulous time otherwise. YAY!
