LIFE RAMADAN EID LIFE

Well, Here I am finally at the keyboard after too long of a time away from this blog. But can we all say: “LIFE” Yes that four letter word that gets us all distracted from things we like to do.
School has started back up for me, plus I am working and still trying to homeschool the kidlets.
Busy busy busy. Just call me SUPER WOMAN!!!

The past 29 days we have been in the whirl wind of Ramadan, tomorrow is the last day. Can we now say: “Thank God!” (not being sarcastic…..much). It is just a busy time of year. With all the dinners and the not eating and the late prayers. Next year I am taking Ramadan OFF!!! NO! I don’t mean I am skipping it I mean I am doing nothing else for the entire month!!!!!

I swear, you break your fast you get a burst of energy, you go to the evening prayers and the next time you look at the clock it is 12:30am and you think GESH I should probably go to bed because I gotta get up before dawn tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and you do it all over again. For 30 days because “WE” never have a 29 day Ramadan EVER!!!!!

Somehow I don’t think that is right I mean at least once in the 20 years I have been Muslim, Ramadan should have landed on a 29 day month right? I mean seriously what are the odds that for 20 years with it moving 11 days earlier each year that it would never land on one of those SHORTER months? HMMMMMM????? I smell a rotten fish in the basket. I guess they think better save than sorry. But maybe with the NEW”high tech”, (astronomy LOL) let nasa decide, we will actually start having a 29 day month. MAYBE!!!!

Well like I said we have ONE MORE DAY….count it ONE!!!! Until Eid on Wednesday. I took the kids shopping for new clothes today, that is always such a beating!!!! The boy was more dramatic than the middle girl this year over what he wanted to wear. Who knew! Then after that ordeal I had to go to work and be on my feet for 5 hours. I am sore and tired. But I am awake because…..well I really don’t know why I am still awake.

Oh yes I do,,,I was going to write an Ethics paper that is due tomorrow and instead I am here typing a blog post instead.

I guess when I wake up before dawn tomorrow and before I go to class at 9am I will write the paper because honestly I am beat!!!! And because it is fast approaching the witching hour of 12:30am when I say, “I guess I should really be in bed to do this all over again tomorrow, God willing”

Good night my dear friends!!!!!
