My weekend was a bust . . .

I had one of those weekends where I had planned to do something everyday -- something exciting, unusual, and fun. As it turns out, I ended up doing absolutely nothing that I planned. Although I have been in a blue funk this weekend, no thanks to a cold and a migraine, I managed to think quite a bit about living in Egypt -- not to mention smoke too much.

A lot of people believe that when you're in a funk the best thing to do is buy yourself something to feel better. I don't believe this; rather I believe in reaching out to friends who are in need.

It puts my life in perspective and helps me to remember to say Alhamdulillah for everything.

Ma'salaam,

~Marian

I had many weekends like that when I was working. Plan to get a lot done and then do nothing. But I think sometimes your body just needs a rest. Hope you're feeling better now. And your idea of reaching out to thers in need is a very nice one. May Allah reward you.

Marian - sorry to hear you had a crappy weekend. Those migraines are killer.

So you have been thinking about living in Egypt...in a good or bad way? Do you still want to live there? I know things have changed with Hassan away and I know you miss him terribly. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.

I just got back from my vacation this morning but I am busy with laundry. But there is no place like home. :)

Love and hugs to you and Mira!!
