Well, school has started and already I am sinking deep in the never ending pile of papers and work. I had actually forgotten just how crazy things are. I arrived this morning at 8:30am and it was nonstop all day. I didn't even have time to eat lunch. Finally got to go home at 5:30pm. Feeling a little STRESSED!!! It didn't help that Mazen was up most of the night last night. So lack of sleep, lack of food, and stress made me one dizzy brunette today. I think I must look like a drunk person walking when I get that dizzy.
I keep wanting to put up pictures of Mazen on this site. I did download them from the camera to the laptop. I haven't yet made a CD to transfer them from the laptop to this computer to edit them smaller and put them up. It will take a while. Never enough time.
Today got home from work at 6:00. Michael had stir fry ready to eat. Yum. Ate dinner, and gave Mazen little bites of new foods. She loved it. Then put her in the high chair and fed her some turkey, (she loved that turkey!!!) peas, and oatmeal with bananas in it. She ate really good. Jumped in the tub and bathed Mazen, then laid down and nursed her to sleep while reading a book I need to brush up on before a lecture tomorrow morning at 8 am.
Came downstairs and remembered I better book a ticket to go to CIT in Washington DC in three weeks. Today is the 21 day advanced purchase deadline! It took an HOUR to get it reserved and bought online! Tried calling but they wanted $5 to book it over the phone! What is this world coming to anyway!!! Being CHARGED a fee to have the privilege of PURCHASING something! Weird.
Now I need to pump (Mazen didn't eat real well tonight - exhausted after last night.) and prepare for classes tomorrow. I also still need to type up more of the Chapel schedule. Last night I didn't do much work after I got home and now I'm behind. I forget that this job is from 8am to midnight kind of job. I need the help of the Lord. I feel like I run and work as fast as possible but can't get everything done. There is no way in my strength I can do this. I need HIS strength to get through.
Michael too. He is feeling pretty poorly today. Has a cold. He rarely gets sick. I am worried about him. We will go to bed soon because we both need some sleep.
Okay... gonna sign off now!
