So Sorry for the Big Delay

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to write another post. So much has been happening here, and I just have not had the time.

First of all, my husband made it back to Egypt. He never really heard, officially, from the doctor that everything was ok. He did hear from the nurse that he has a strong heart and there seems to be no blockages. So, we praise God for that.

Second, I started teaching 3rd grade at my son's school. This is enjoyable and rewarding, but at the same time so much work. I usually end up bringing work home with me to grade, prepare, etc. So, that has cut into my free time considerably.

Third, I did not have internet till my husband returned. There was a difficulty in getting it set up again. It took him about 1/2 a day just to get it up and running.

Then, fourth, I had internet for about 30 minutes and guess what! My computer crashed. What a time for it to do that. I know there is never a good time for something like that to happen, but I needed it so bad to do lesson plans and other things for school. Also, I couldn't believe that happened so quickly after we had gotten our internet going.

Well, my husband rushed out the next day and bought me a new computer. I wish we had known this was going to happen when we were in the States because computers are cheaper there, but he did find a pretty good deal on one.

So, I hope to be back up and running soon. I probably won't be as consistent as I was in the past, but there is always so much going on here in Egypt I should have plenty to write about.

Oh yeah, I can't post a picture at the moment because I don't have any pictures on my new computer yet. ;o)


  1. When it rains, it pours! So glad you're back. :)

  2. Glad you're back in business! I can't believe your computer died! That's awful. Good luck with the kids, and with taking lots of new pictures.

  3. Christine and Dedene, thanks. I have been planning on taking my camera into class, but just keep forgetting. Maybe tomorrow? :o)
