Almost back to normal

Friday I woke up feeling like I had been hit by a truck but was still able to go to work.

Saturday I kept waking up in the middle of the night, my entire body and now my head feeling ready to burst. I kept thinking about symmetry for some reason and wanted to take a shower but thought the water would kill me. I ended up having a 102 degree temp and stayed in bed all day. (When I get fevers.. I think/talk crazy stuff)

Sunday my body felt better but my sinuses were a mess. I spent most of the night coughing and didn't sleep more than 2 hours at a time. Now my back and chest hurt, my nose is runny... but I still feel better alhamdulillah.

With that pesky flu bug almost out of the way, I find myself able to get out of bed in the morning to do my daily internet readings. I stumbled upon this article. For the love of God people, stop climbing Mt. Hood!

Well that is all for now... I have to go air out my room and wash all my sheets. There is this post-flu heavyness in the air in that space I have occupied for nearly 72 hours straight. It really needs to be cleaned....

My Buddy and Me

This little fella has been my constant companion since Friday. I have spend my three day weekend in bed for the most part. Totally sucks. I was totally looking forward to this 3 week workshop that started yesterday (Saturday) that my friend is teaching. Kinda bummed. But honestly I felt so nasty so in a way I don't really regret missing the class cuz I know I was really sick and not just being lazy and making excuses for myself.

Not much new here.

Britney Spears is a freaking nut case. My sympathy for her has gone out the window and I am left looking at those pictures of her in a tattoo parlor wondering "What the heck kind of drugs is she on???" Britney.. I never liked you or your music.. I did feel bad about the media stalking you and your babies.. but now you shave your head and sport tattoos??? Are you TRYING to get your kids taken from you?

Just goes to show that all the money in the world does NOT bring happiness.

Isn't it ironic?

Yesterday was February 14th. Also it was Valentine's Day.

I know Muslims who do not see the harm in engaging in the card-chocolate-rose giving festivities. But let's face it - it has nothing to do w/ Islam and I don't need to cite a source when I say that the Prophet pbuh distinctly advised that we only celebrate the two eids.

If you are Muslim and think it is okay to celebrate it - i will not hit you with my Kaffir Stick. I don't have one, but I'm sure one of my Twisted Sisters could loan me one... so watch out!!!!!

I don't celebrate Valentine's Day for the following reasons:

1 - You should express your love to someone on a daily basis. Not go overboard for one day. If you are a crappy boy/girlfriend or spouse, one day of wining and dining will not make up for the rest of the crap you put your partner thru.

2 - It is way too commercialized. Just like all the other holidays here. Seriously - if you don't get that collector's valentine whatever from wherever, or you only get a single rose and not a bouquet of one dozen.. is it really the end of the world?

3 - As liberal as I may sound sometimes(if you read all my deleted posts), I only actively celebrate the two eids. i will attend b-day parties and christmas with my non-muslim family, but I don't participate. I sit, eat, chat and then leave. No hurt feelings and I don't feel like that angel on my left shoulder is writing down yet another bad deed.

4 - the whole historical ties of paganism mixing w/ christianity as more of a political ploy also is in my mind as well but it is late and i don't feel like going into detail. I wrote a paper on it in college and I'll find it and post it here...

With that said, the only people to wish me a happy v-day were muslims. which made me giggle.

JiLbAbBLe ReLoAdEd

aaaaaaaaaaw yeaaaaaah

I deleted all my previous posts.

Cuz I can do that.

Am I manic.. bipolar... schizo??

No... "We" don't think so (*hee hee)

I need a change. I need a fresh state of mind.. a willingness to uplift my iman and be a better person, Muslim, mother, daughter, etc.

How can I sit around feeling lonely, wanting Allah to bless me with anything.. if i don't DO anything myself????

Funny how I can't really change my current situation.. I don't have somekind of Life Mouse that I can point and click on the elements of my life that I'd like to get rid of.. and then highlight and select the things I would like to have (not exactly material things..). But that is what du'a is for right? And Allah swt in the end decides what is best. If I don't see it now.. I will eventually see it. Maybe what I want in life right now is not what is best for me..

I just pray that Allah accepts my du'a to do what is best for me and my faith.. and I humble myself in supplication.. I will accept what ever comes in my path and not dwell on what I don't have.

So with that... tune in to Jilbabble Reloaded...
