And so it begins

The Eid madness has started. In light of the fact that Ramadan is later this month, Big M has come to me with a Eid list. A three page Eid list, complete with Coach items and a tiara. I got her a very nice tiara last year from Silver Dolphin in Springfield, VA. She would like a replica Miss Teen USA tiara this year but no one seems to make one. Of course, my sister/her mom hates the entire beauty pageant, prom, cheerleading, "I'm a princess" thing. She's very against it. My sister is so anti-girly things. She thinks it's all very shallow. Whatever. It's fun. I have no problems buying a tiara but really. The girl's handing an unemployed person a three page wish list that includes designer items. Not cool. I told her that I will happily buy a tiara and/or a Coach bag if I have a job and if I can't, no attitude. She agreed so I don't anticipate any problems. However, I have told her that she cannot add to her list unless she takes something off. My brother is completely different, he hasn't even thought about what he wants.

I can't even believe that it's time for Ramadan already. I'm so not ready. God, before I know it, it'll be during the summer. I really won't be able to handle that. Really. I wonder if it's wrong to hope that I'll be married and pregnant by that time? Obviously, I need to work on my deen. Wanting to be pregnant to get out of fasting is not cool.

No way is it already Eid. Where does the time go?

Astagfirallah but I've had the same idea when I think about Ramadan being in the summer...

It's not Eid yet but it will be in less than two months.

Rubina, I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Haha! I was so wishing I should be pregnant in Ramadan in the summer! But that would mean being pregnant consecutively for several years before Ramadan fall in the cooler months again! And remember I live in the desert with 41 degrees of heat already, ahhhhhhhhhh....

Catholics fast too, to some extent, and yes, during Lent, I sometimes ponder if maybe next year will be the one that finds me and my (as yet unknown) husband expecting a little miracle.
