Keeping Busy/Just a Footnote.

That's pretty much what I've done all weekend.

Friday night was a Family Movie Night at my school so that kept me away from home...

Saturday morning I went to the masjid to a lecture. Then, I took my son to a mall on the other side of town to buy him some much needed pants (I'm afraid his needs will get lost in the New Baby Shuffle come May) and 1-on-1 time with his super cool Mom (that would be moi). Then I dropped him off at home and my friend took me to a new cafe and we ate canollis. Later, my son and I stuffed ourselves silly at another friend's house.

So I was out and about from 9 am until 10 pm. I didn't get any work done at home but at least I wasn't moping around all day, alhamdulillah.

Today I had to go to a meeting in the morning and then a halaqa in the afternoon. And now I'm here.

Alright, enough of the play-by-play.

Last night I had a dose of Lonely Bitterness. Around 2:30 a.m. I woke up with the worst heart burn!!! My fault for eating so much, so late. I was completely out of Tums!! So by 4:30 a.m. I couldn't take it anymore and drove down the street to a 7-11 for my Tums fix. It was worth it.

**the rest of this post was deleted from the blog, and therefore, my memory.

Sister this has absolutely nothing to do with your post except that I thought it might make you laugh and if it doesnt then I beg for your forgiveness.

It's just what I thought of when reading your post.

I was about 5 or 6 years old and I went to Florida with my family. My sister brought her friend and it was around the time that song "she's got the look" was popular. My sister and her friend decided to make me start singing "she's got the clap!" I sang that for months until one day my aunt had heard enough. She said look the clap is a disease you get in your privates so stop singing about it PLEASE! I sang it in restaurants and bathrooms. People always looked at me in horror and then as I left the room they let out a loud laugh. I never got it until then.
