The countdown to the end of Ramadan has started. Now is the time I start getting ready for Eid and the two days I'll spend at the in-laws. It's a combination of getting myself psyched up emotionally to handle it and also to find some way to occupy my time for two very, very, very long and boring days.
I've been saving up National Geographic magazines to read. And I have movies on my iPod and some books. This will keep my brain from going numb - my ass will be numb no matter what. My sister-in-laws sit around all the time, doing nothing but gossiping. How do they sit around all day, every day? Their bottoms must be paralized.. I know their brains are. .. sigh...
The third day of Eid I am taking off with the kids and doing something, I'm not sure what yet but it will be anything but sitting around.
