Change of Plans

My mom and my brother were scheduled to arrive in Beirut from Madrid at 5:30 AM Tuesday morning. My plan was to stay up all night so I could pick them up from the airport. There was no chance I was going to get up at 5:00 in the morning. This is Beirut. Beirut is all about night life. It isn’t possible to go to bed at 9:00 in the evening. That’s before dinner time in this city.
But I just found out their flight was cancelled. They will arrive tomorrow instead of today. So my blogging plans also are cancelled. I was going to spend the wee hours blogging, but now I must spend them sleeping. I don’t particularly want to be on a vampire schedule when my mother shows up if I don’t have to.
More blog posts are coming. More articles are coming, too. I have completed five that hopefully will be published soon…
