Have you been wondering where I have been for so long? If you have, then I must say that you should find something better to do with your time.
You see, the last night I spent at my aunt’s house I couldn’t sleep. When the one year old falls asleep, the baby wakes up, and when she falls asleep, the one year old wakes up and the trend goes on all night. Just watching my poor aunt hold one kid after the other and sometimes both in her arms while her eyes are burning red, due to lack of sleep I just couldn’t leave her all by herself and go home. So, I asked her to come along with me, and spend sometime at my place. She agreed, we packed and now it’s been a week since we’ve been home. Home sweeeeeeet home.
The night I got home, I received my work schedule on email and it turned out I was starting work the very next day. Since then I have either been working, or taking care of kids or been going to the mosque, every chance I get. And with the fasting and hot weather, by the time I get home from work or put the babies to sleep, or finish my Isha prayers, I am too exhausted to even lift my finger, let alone type up a blog post. So here I am justifying my absence, and hoping that you will understand. Now, lets change gears:
- University is starting from September 7, 2011. I’m excited, but I’m nervous. Very very nervous. I was telling my friend about how nervous I am and he told me to take it easy, and that I am going to love my first year. Well, I’m holding on to his words and let’s hope it turns out that way, insha’Allah.
- Laylat-ul-Qadr just passed. And what an amazing night it was. The mosque held and all-nighter, and we did prayers and read supplications together from after Isha prayers, all the way to Sehri. I’m trying to come up with words to describe how it was, and how much peace and contentment we all felt in our hearts when we left the mosque in the morning, but I can’t. My words are not nearly enough to describe how glorious and peaceful my experience was. Subhan’Allah.
Those are the only updates I can think of from the top of my head. I just glanced at the time on the bottom right corner, and now I’m panicking because I have work at 8 am tomorrow, and I haven’t got one bit of sleep all day. So I’m going to have to leave you now. I had a few other things to add, but maybe another time.
Take care my lovely readers, and followers and have yourself a lovely week. Until next time…
Adios babies! x
