Assalam alaikum & Peace to all
Well I have not fallen off the face of the planet, although sometimes I feel like I have. The last two weeks of July I had my official time off from work but that was no fun at all because I had to move my Mom out of her own place and move her into our rather small 900sq ft. apartment. Basically we sold her house (the house I grew up in all my 34yrs minus the 2 years I've been married)
and are looking to find a new house for all of us...inshallah we will find something good to suit us all, please keep us in your dua's that we find something suitable!
On a side note it has been really very hard to part with the old house. I grew up there and all of my memories are tied to that house which will probably be rubble soon (as the person who bought it will be tearing it down eventually) so I feel like my memories will be scattered among the rubble. The house sold quickly alhamduillah, and the closing date was very fast, we had only about 3-4 weeks to pack everything and move it!
Let me tell you that packing up 30+ years of memories and 'junk' took some time and effort, both physically and emotionally!
I found tons of my old school papers, and other junk. Photos of my Father and his young years, and I couldn't help but be overwhelmed with emotion - I kind of tie that house to my Father's memory very closely and it is difficult to break that but it had to be done and I know that he would be ok with our decision.
So that is mostly why I have not blogged for a while, been trying to make sense of this new life, living with my Mom and hubby under the same roof.
Pregnancy has been good alhamduillah, but it's really a struggle some days. I just pray that everything is good with the little one and is born healthy and strong, all the tiredness and aches and pains and annoyances are little to go though to have a strong, healthy little one!
I'll try and update the blog more often...actually I have one update in mind and it involves my Mom and an Abaya ... wow! Stay tuned! LOL
