I realized I haven’t been on here in a while.  Things don’t change much in this household.  I’m not sure if I ever said that I had my immigration interview.  It was on June 24th.  I’m just waiting to hear back from that before we start on the next step.  There isn’t much more I can say about that.

My sister is 12 weeks pregnant and obnoxiously weird about it.  She has her 12 week appointment tomorrow and wants to go alone to hear the baby’s heartbeat.  I wish she’d let somebody go with her.  I guess the only person she would want to be there is the one that isn’t able to be.  Right before she found out she was pregnant, her boyfriend went to prison.  She doesn’t talk about anything.  I’m sure the depression is setting in.

The highlight of my days is coming home to Borio the wonder bun.  He is the sunshine in my otherwise bleak days lately.  He is one smart rabbit.  He’s definitely different than what I expected from a pet rabbit.  He exceeds all my expectations.  I love to watch when he is let out of his cage and does his happy rabbit jumps.  Nothing is more precious than when I’m holding him and he gives me rabbit kisses on my chin.  He’s a very sweet boy.

Ok, so he’s not really bad, he’s just naughty, but in a silly good way.  I let him frolic in the living room while I pick up his cage every day.  He is litter box trained, or rather corner trained, as I discovered today.

I was cleaning out the cage and had his litter box out to empty it.  My good little boy hopped into his cage, went to the corner where his litter box should be, and went potty.  I just cleaned the cage, so I was annoyed.  I couldn’t be too mad though, he went where he was technically supposed to, and it wasn’t on the carpet!

Miss A, what’s wrong with you?  You recently spent 2 weeks in Egypt and have hardly talked about it!  You keep talking about this silly rabbit.  When do we get to hear about Egypt?

You might think my trip to Egypt was super duper exciting and I have tons of tales to tell.  You might be right.  My trip to Egypt might have just been some much needed time between spouses, with not much to tell about.  Then again, maybe it’s like those Vegas commercials…  what happens in Egypt stays in Egypt.  Naaaaaaaah!

InshaAllah I will talk about my trip soon.  I just might not be ready yet.  Until then, know this, Multicultural Muslimah is right about Lucille’s, they have the best burgers.  She introduced me to the restaurant and it will definitely be somewhere I will go back to when I’m in Egypt and crave a cheeseburger!


Yeah, he’s named after an imitation Oreo that they have in Egypt, but there’s no imitating this little rascal!IMG_1226-1
Here’s what the little sweetie pie looks like when he’s fluffy. The other pictures are from me holding him and petting him, but he’s really a fluff ball.
He is kind of a mischief maker, but that’s ok. I wish I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow so that I could chill at home with him again.





He is the sweetest little bunny boy!  I got him last Saturday.  He’s a 5 week old jersey wooly rabbit.  He likes to cuddle.  He loves to run, something he’s never been let out to do before, and he does these silly half jumps.  I’ll have to get some video on here at some point.  Sorry that I’ve been neglecting my blog, maybe Borio will inspire me to write more often.

I am finally caught up on sleep, alhamdulilah.  I have spent my time catching up on sleep, working, and getting everything together for our immigration interview next week.  I can’t wait to have that over.  Keeping busy has really helped me not think about leaving Egypt.  I miss my hubby so much, I wish I could have shoved him in my suitcase.



We had a really nice time together.  We should have, it had been 8 months since we saw each other!  My husband took me to Sharm el Sheikh on the Red Sea.  It was gorgeous.  He went snorkeling, I freaked out and swam back to the boat!  We spent some time in Cairo, and we went to the zoo.  We went to a city where his father’s family lives that is more in the country.  By that time we had a couple days left and it was time for me to go.  It was wonderful, but it went by much too fast.  InshaAllah next time he will be coming back here.

I’m back in the US, I got back late Sunday night.  I’m tired.

I’m home again, or did I just leave home?  It’s really hard to say.  Where is home?  Is this home because it’s what I call my residence?  Is Egypt home because that’s where my husband is?  Home is quite relative.

I just want to live in the same place as my husband and be able to call that home.  InshaAllah I pray that will happen soon.

I’m off for another Egyptian adventure. I doubt I’ll touch my blog in the next 2 and a half weeks. I can’t wait to share stories when I do come back.
