Without a Car

Over a month ago,  my son was driving my car and had a terrible accident.  Of course I know that it is quite possible for a young man who just started driving to have an accident and I guess all beginners do,  but I never thought it would be that bad.  Thank God he is OK but my car is ruined.  It’s been five weeks now at the mechanics and they are still working and fixing it.  Not to mention the amount of money I paid till now and how my husband is pissed off,  but I’m the one who is suffering. I’m a prisoner at home and I can’t do both personal or work errands.  I’m jobless and I think that even whenever I get my car back I won’t have work anymore.  I was supposed to deliver my products last month to some markets and I didn’t.  No one will rely on my word again.  I feel awful and my husband can’t handle the kids outings and lessons.  He’s not used to driving back and forth like I do. He knows that I’m stuck and never offered to drive me to those markets to deliver my late orders.  On the contrary,  he stayed a lot at home this past month cause he was tired and exhausted.  We are both under stress.  I feel bad without a car and I’m too far from the markets and from my family as well.  I haven’t seen my parents for two months.  Now my Kuwaiti friend Adam is coming next week and I don’t know what am I going to do.  First I won’t be able to fetch her from the airport plus I won’t be able to see her everyday.  Oooof such a terrible feeling such a terrible situation.  Hope I get back my car this week.

Thinking Differently

My husband and son just arrived the day before yesterday from Kuwait. The same day the World Cup began. So the first night was spent watching TV for both of them at my mother in law’s home. Second day my son wanted to see his newly born cousin and so it was. Now as the third day he really wished to meet his one and only bestie in Egypt “Mahmoud” so I called his mom who’s my best friend here and she gave me several options. The problem is that we come here as visitors while all the people we know here are living their daily life and not like us as a big vacation. So Mahmoud was working like a summer job and was responsible for an activity by the pool at the club. Hussein didn’t want to see him while he’s working, he wanted to hang out with him. So the other alternative was to go watch the match together at night in a cafe and unfortunately Mohamed didn’t agree. This is something quite normal here and common but this is not what my man thinks. He has a different way of thinking. He still feels it’s not stable in Egypt or maybe they r still young to go out alone at night. I don’t know! Tried my best as my son was really desperate and wanted to go out with his friend, but no way. So, we all stayed at home today. Hope this will not be the case all summer.

Exams time

It’s this time of year when we all get stressed at home. The month of May is the month I worry about and I used to hate it cause my son always gave me trouble and I had to study with him but strange enough this year he’s doing great so far and I didn’t help him at all. I have no idea what he’s even studying, but the problem this year is my younger daughter. From an A student to a C and sometimes D, that’s horrifying. I will dedicate this coming two weeks to study with her and try to push her a little bit even though it’s too late, but I have to do it. My birthday is tomorrow but I don’t feel any joy and don’t even want to celebrate. A friend of mine wanted to celebrate with me but I thanked him and told him that I don’t have time to celebrate. Never mind, inshallah next year will be better and my daughter will pass this teen phase. Wish us good luck.

Hello November

Welcome the month of November. The best month of the year to me. God blessed me with my first joy in this month and particularly on the 25th. Ever since this day, my whole life changed. Even though I thought that having a kid was not that easy and especially a boy too, but he was a true blessing and source of happiness. God bless you my love and wishing you an early happy birthday till I see what we will plan for that special day when you turn 16.

My son’s girlfriend

And now my son who is 15 years old has a girlfriend which I don’t mind at all. I know that this is the age for it and that this is something quite normal nowadays. But I’m afraid from this girl cause my son is so naive while she is an expert. Well, she is only 13, two years younger I know. You must think that she is young enough to have any experience at all. But here is the thing: she is going out with two at the same time. My son and his friend. I got to know that from the friend’s mother. She mentioned the name and I was shocked. I even talked with him and with all the simplicity in the world he replied that she is only a friend with all of the boys. But what I see is totally different. The chatting till midnight and their talks which I sometimes hear, are not those of only a friend thing. The other mother also told me that the girl cornered her son last week with this question “do you love me?” Oh my God. I got to know from another mother that my son paid for her and her friends tickets for the cinema. I can’t believe that but he really finishes his pocket money way before the month ends. I wish he understands before its too late. I would really love to see him with a decent girl who will be polite and sincere and give him the will to study and finish his school instead of this one who is online all the time and just wants to go out and hang out with them and also invite them over to her place. Yes it’s quite normal to have all the boys at her place anytime during day and night. My ex caught him going in to her building at 10:30 pm one night and sent him back home and he was so upset cause they will still have pizza. I hope he really gets to know the real her before he is totally attached and it will break his heart then.
