Last night at around 2 am, my wonderful in-laws arrived from overseas to spend 4 weeks with us. Obviously, I spent the weekend organizing. And scrubbing. And generally trying to make it seem that I’m much more domestic than I probably am (or have the time to be). Not sure how well my under-the-rug strategy is going to work.
For the next 4 weeks we are so excited about grandparently LOVE, more Arabic spoken inside the home, giving this new Talfazaat Arabic TV over-IP thing a try, and…
Home. Cooked. Food.
Just thinking about it makes me want to do one of those kick up my heels and click them together while walking down the yellow-brick road moves. I’m good at those. I’ve been practicing for a LONG time.
Working really long hours lately has left us with more nights than I’d like to admit where dinner has been some variation of tuna, eggs, popcorn, frozen yogurt, or cereal. I know. I deserve the Worst Mother of the Year award.
But guess what?! I popped a couple of my mother-in-law’s famous ka3ek (mouth-watering date cookies with just the right amount of cardamom) this morning and I don’t feel so bad about it.
Goodbye, tuna! I hope I don’t see you for at least another month!
