Um al-rabeain is the name of the new operation in Mosul to clear it from al Qieda .it started with 5 days curfew ,we remained stuck at home
We spent the time doing different things but still the time was so long .
I myself started to read Bremer”s book about his one year stay in Iraq, I played music a lot on my keyboard , did some house work like cleaning the windows, spent some time chatting with my family and wrote some posts and articles.
yoyo like to play in the garden but I keep worry about him it’s not safe even in our own garden, but my boy hate to stay all the time in our small apartment .he want to run ,play with his ball, and bicycle .
Mariam’s exams were postponed .she is upset because of that, she want her summer holiday to start .but she is ok,spent her time playing with Yosif ,doing some beautiful hand made work, she is also fond of puzzles, and spend time doing wonderful templets.
my husband and his dad did some house repairs ,he also like to listen to the news a lot and to watch TV .specially action movies that I hate.
My mother in law is so scared and worry a lot she spend most of her time listening to the news which I personally don’t trust.
Sunshine is studying for the next year . she like to spend time with the computer, watching certain TV shows ,helping me in the house work ,and some times cooking delicious meals.
I think most of us gain some extra weight because we eat when we get bored ,specially in the long afternoons.
After a three weeks of um alrabeain we can see the difference in the security situation although not all the time .
Our house was inspected three times during the first week of the new operation. but the soldiers were polite and only checked our identities and our house and cars’ papers. with very quick look on part of the house at each time.
About Bremer’s book that I am reading ,it helped me a lot in treating my hypotension ,but I try to read a little and when my blood pressure raise and have flushing face, I stop to listen to music or play music myself, to calm down . he wrote to the world about leaving his paradise to come to our hell to rescue us. any way it’s too early to judge his book after reading 50 pages out of 496.may Allah help me to read more pages without having a stroke.
