Did someone pick up my mom from the airport? Did she go to As-Sahafah? Is she going to Shendi? By train or by bus? Did she get net for her phone? How's my uncle and his wife in Egypt?
And then questions about home as well.. did my dad and sister eat? what did they eat? what should i make for dinner?
And thoughts about getting the present I had planned on getting for my friend's wedding, from Amazon..
And thoughts about going to the lab , but dreading the fact that nobody will be there in the whole building, and no food as the cafes would be closed..
And wanting to fast the sitoot (6 days of Shawwal) and the Qadha' first of course..
In this manner, I was left sitting doing nothing and yet tired, instead of doing the things I could've done - like showering, cooking, and eating eid cookies :P
N.B. Eid for expats is not always this way..but this is how it is when you don't take the first step and go visiting other people.. I'm not proud of us in that aspect..
