The kids go back to school Saturday! Yeah! I'm getting excited already. The noise level in my house has been the highest it's been in a long time. I've taken to wearing the headphones from my computer just to try to muffle the noise a bit. I even went out today to see if I could find a pair of wireless ones so I wouldn't have the wire wrapped around my neck. Six kids in a small apartment are just too much! Of course everyone thinks just because you have half a dozen kids that you must like them, so they send their kids over to play too. I am sick enough of looking at my own kids - I get to look at the neighbors kids and various nieces and nephews too.
On top of all this is a sick cat. Poor Siamese has tonsillitis and the vet has ordered all kinds of medicine. I never knew that cats could get tonsillitis, but that is what the vet said so we'll go along with it. She gets three injections every day for about a week. One of them is some kind of vitamin concoction and is painful - she yowls, bites whoever she can manage to bite, and then proceeds to pee - right then and there. I try to find something to keep me out of the way while the shots are being given - hmmm. . . I think it's time to clean the toilet bowls, or I pretend to be looking for something very important in the back of the cabinet in my room.
And then there's Mustafa . . .Mustafa is on this kick saying he wants me to make a schedule- mapping out the times that I use the computer. He thinks that my computer use interferes with daily life. I decided to make a schedule for him instead - He gets three hours every evening designated to watching Aljazeera. I showed him the schedule and he wadded it up into a ball and threw it across the room. I picked it up and smoothed out the paper and stuck it on the mirror in our bedroom. I told him my computer time is the same three hours while he is watching Aljazeera. Do you know what he said? - He said that while he is watching Aljazeera he wants me to be serving him tea and roasting peanuts for him!
Ha! That will be the day!
