Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday. I am not quite sure how I feel about it. I cannot believe that I am old enough to be the age I am now. I still think of myself as a twenty something. I watch my children get older, but I feel like time should stand still for me. Regardless, this birthday has been not like any other. I am soooooo far from home, and I feel more so today. My only plans for the day will be to call Mama, Raed, Elizabeth, and if my phone is still working I will call my sisters.

Mama, I am sure missing your chocolate cake and your birthday messages! I love you very much.

Happy Birthday to me.

Jordan Rocks!

For my birthday, my sis in law took me to the theatrical production of Jordan Rocks! last night. It was very good. The preforming arts are relatively new to Jordan, so seeing how well done this musical was done was an added bonus. I heard about the musical from Ola, my sis in law's friend. She was in charge of the stage design. She did a wonderful job!

Jordan Rocks! was set in Petra and was the typical love story. Even though my Arabic is poor, I still was able to enjoy the show.

Even though the kids were kept out late on a school night, it was soooooo worth it! I am so happy I was able to see the show!
