Rami is very excited about this weekend! We made plans to have a fun filled afternoon with one of his new classmates. I will meet his mother, and if all goes well, this will be the beginning of a friendship outside of family ties. We will be adding another step to building a life here in Amman.
It was a very chilly night last night. As a result, Adam woke up vomiting, because he was too cold. He is okay now, but I definitely need to pull down the heavy blankets to use everynight. The weather is changing. Summer has left, and the fall air has moved in its place. It is almost time to sort throught the winter clothes.
Layla fell on the stairs today. I will now live 3 years less than originally planned. Yes, she was hurt. Not bad enough to go to the hospital for stitches, but bad enough to scare the daylights out of her mother. Her clothes were covered in blood. It is true that a head wound bleeds more than other wounds. I now know firsthand. It has now been decided that Layla is no longer allowed to navigate the stairs by herself.
So, between a vomiting child and a bleeding child, this morning was crazy. I am glad that I got a chance to clean the refrigerator in the meantime. (This written in a very sarcastic tone)
