Miss A's Blog

Just a muslim woman trying to make some sense out of this world. This is my creative outlet, and my place to let out frustration, and emotion.

I'm not wanted...

by the law, that is!

That's right, there is no warrant out for my arrest. I am not going to go to jail for not committing a crime! Isn't that super-duper fabulous? I think it is. I almost had a nervous breakdown the other day when I thought there might be a warrant out for my arrest. All that trouble simply for being forgetful.

Snow Day Part 2

Here is some snow from last night. Has it ended? Of course not!

Apparently about a foot of snow has fallen already. It doesn't look that bad in the back of the building where I'm taking my pics. But the snow is still coming down! So, stay in, have a snow day. Don't drive anywhere!

Oh snowy day! For some reason the falling snow doesn't show up on these pics very well. This is at 5:30pm. I might update you on the snow situation later or tomorrow. It's like a blizzard out there!

The Game

I didn't forget about the game last night. Me, little bro, mom, and step-dad went to the Timberwolves game last night. It was the first time for all 3 of them. The Wolves lost. My mom got super agitated, she was holding her face with both hands. It was quite comical, I've never seen her get into a game like that. Little bro had a lot of fun. It was good to spend time with them. There were crazy mascots from a bunch of teams too. It was pretty wild in there. We got Crunch up close too, my photos are all blurry though!

No Blogging Motivation

I've had little or no motivation to blog. However, I decided I should blog today since I haven't done so in about a week. This is what I've done in that time:

1) I've worked (yay)

2) Not much of anything else

I did however grow a "Happy Hank". What's a "Happy Hank", you ask. This is what it is:

Happy Hank, Day One

Happy Hank, Day 2

Happy Hank, Day 3-Full Sized

He tends to look a little more cro-magnon as the days go on. Now he is out of water and shrinking down to original size (so I can grow him again and again!)

An Accomplishment

The spring cleaning has begun. I need to prepare, and I've started! I started with the closet today. I don't know why I hang on to things forever. It does feel good to filter them out though. Thank you to "Miss Patootie Pie" for staying and keeping me company while I cleaned! Thank you, thank you!

I took care of the sock drawer, and am taking a break from working on the hijab drawer. What a mess! InshaAllah I am going to feel so good when this is done. Alhamdulilah. I better get back to it before the motivation leaves me.

Alhamdulilah! This last week has been pretty incredible. It is the end of an era. I have gotten the tax documents from the ex. I no longer have any link to him whatsoever. I can't actually believe what a weight it is that's been lifted. I feel like I can move on and there is nothing hanging onto my ankle. I've had a nervous feeling that he might try to make trouble with a new husband. Alhamdulilah, I don't feel like he will do this anymore. I couldn't be happier.

There are so many things going on right now that I wish I could talk about. InshaAllah the time will come. May Allah give me patience. Sometimes it's better to wait until you know what is what. For now, I'm pretty content.

I don't know which is worse: a) trying to be patient through bad times or b) trying to be patient for something awesome that's coming up.

I don't like to talk about this too much, because you never know what can happen. But I am excited! Now if I can just be patient enough to make it through the next 5 and a half weeks! InshaAllah.

This is my favorite co-worker quote of the day:

"We're all aboard the crack head ship. Do you know who the captain is?"

I don't like getting this way. I am super emotional. Why else would I still be awake at 1 am? I have been crying, and when I start I keep going. I now have a runny nose and headache (those were already kind of there because of the cold I'm getting).

Whine, whine, whine!

I think I've said before that some things I just shouldn't buy the economy brand. Well, I've discovered another! Airborne, you know, the immune booster to help keep away colds. I bought the generic brand. Not good. It tasted like I threw up in the back of my throat. Too much information? Sorry. Trying to save you from making the same mistake. Oh, and it was Target brand, the lime flavor. Yeah, I bought 2 packages. I will just have to really water them down.

Back to my emotions. Now that I've blogged about them, I'm too tired to care.

Last Weekend

I never really talked about last weekend. I was at my mom's house last weekend. I took Friday off, and I surprised her by going up there Thursday night. Her birthday was Friday, and I was supposed to go there straight from work to pick up my little brother from basketball practice. My mom and step-dad went out and spent all Friday together. I lounged at their house until it was time to get my brother.
It ended up being a really nice weekend. My uncle and aunt came over Saturday for dinner. My brother actually spent some time with me on Saturday (because friends are usually SO much more important!). When I left my little brother even asked if I would come back the next weekend. He didn't want me to leave. I don't get that too much anymore either! My mom said that was the best birthday she ever had, ever. It wasn't much, but I'm really glad she had a nice time.
Oh, and Monday, my little brother had his birthday. He is now a "young man" of 13 years. May Allah bless them both with many more years!

The Best Week Ever!

Why would this have been such an awesome week? 2 reasons, really:

1) Things can change when you least expect them to. Things can seem bleak for so long, and then in an instant everything changes. Is that vague enough for you?

2) The evil co-worker has been on vacation all week long. I'm not the only one that felt the relief either. The whole room felt it. It was almost like we were on vacation too.

I hope some of that goodness can hold on until next week. Because next week isn't looking so good. I am working on then line with above mentioned evil co-worker, and the other most evil co-worker. I asked my group leader if she hated me. She laughed, so I'm not sure.
