Dance like no one is watching, Blog like no one is reading

To blog or not to blog, this is the question…

I’ve been away from blogging since I got married, I even considered closing this blog down, I mean I barely have time now, and the few times that I wrote or left comments made me feel a bit guilty, I was thinking in my head “I should get up and do something more useful around the house, I felt like saying so many things here as I used to, but privacy was my biggest challenge, as everybody knows, this blog is a personal space for me, I don’t write about sports, politics, or religion, more than 3 years now, and this is the first time that I really feel like I can’t write.

Ramadan was hard, but Eid will Wednesday I guess, so Kol 3am O Ento b 5ear ya rab, may god bless you all this Eid and always, I have mixed emotions as Eid is at the door, I mean, I’m so excited cuz this is the first Eid for me and husbandy as married couple, and things has been going great el 7amdolla, with his new job, and a lot of other good things (Qol A3ootho B Rab EL Falaq), and on the other hand, I’m gonna miss being with my family so much, we were suppose to spend this Eid with my family in LA, but due to our schedule, we had to rearrange for El Eid El Kbeer.

Two days ago was the first time I chat with my mom online ( we usually call each other every day), I decided to turn on my web cam, it was so much fun, I took her for a tour in the house, I showed her everything, she got so excited, and commented “Mashalla 3aleaki m3adalleh, beatek ndeef 🙂 ”

back to what I was saying, I want to blog about so many things really, I feel like I can write until tomorrow, but for some reason, it’s not as easy anymore, I mean I love blogging, I love reading other people’s blogs, I made soooooooooo many friend through this blog, I even met my husband through this blog, I will be back to my regular blogging soon, very soon, as for now, Happy Eid everyone.

P.S: we are having Koosa O Dawali to day for Iftar, I will post pictures as soon as I finish cokking 🙂

Ahlan Ramadan, GO AWAY Ramadan…

Yes, this Ramadan is so hard, it’s just out of control, don’t judge me, bs I just want this Ramadan to end today before tomorrow (as in “elyoum abel bokra”)

as you all know, husbandy lhad to leave the day before Ramadan and came back on the first day of Ramadan for a business trip (el 7amdolla he got the job he went for 🙂 ), and of course I didn’t sleep a wink, the house felt like hell without him (mushy mesh mushy… had elli ejakom, so shut up KJ) .

I got this job, and I started on that day as well, first day of Ramadan, so no sleep, a brand new job about something I’ve never done before in my entire life, and I tell you, it’s way harder that it seems, I’m exhausted physically and mentally, el 7amdolla 3ala kol 7al.

Since the beginning of Ramadan, I’m running around during the day, and I’m not sleeping at night, and by the time I fall asleep, I have to get up again at 4 and prepare sohour cuz the day here in seattle is soooooooooooooooooooooooo loooooooooooooooong, we can’t make it without grabbing a bite at sohour, we didn’t have sohour on the first day, and we both were dizzy around Maghreb time, it’s extremely long 😦

So here we go, no eating, no sleeping, and a lot of work to do, i feel like my life is out of control, we come home late, so since the beginning of Ramadan, we didn’t have our ftour on time, we are always running in the kitchen at maghrib time, for 4 days now, we’ve been having our ftour at least at 3esha time!!!

Now seriously… enough Ramadan, I’m falling apart already!!!
