How Ya Doing ?

Hey ! Sorry I haven't posted recently OR even had time to read any of your wonderful blog posts ! It has just been crazy around the Condo these last few weeks what with being sick , lazy , lazier , and then super busy procrastinating ..... well, I haven't really had much time to do anything else! But hey , I have put that all behind me now , moved on , and have " JOE " ( the atmosphere / weather ) for Ramadan . I am finally ready for RAMADAN and not a minute too soon since it starts tomorrow .

Yep , I stayed up until 4 A.M. last night cooking the stuff that I can freeze ahead of time . Yeah ! We got the shopping done last week before they jacked up the prices in the stores .Today I spent cleaning , ugh ! Tomorrow all I have to is survive the 1st day , cook dinner and try to remember to be nice ! Hum .... oh , and pray that I don't break my fast with a bad thought or word .Phew ... looks like I am in for it !

I want to set aside a time to read the Quran this year with Moe ,everyday to remind us why we fast , to renew our faith , and strengthen our resolve in Islam . It will be good . I am looking forward to this since we tend to lose sight of what Ramadan is really about, what with the visiting, cooking , and the special TV shows brought on TV only during Ramadan.

To tell you the truth , these are the very things we should practice year around ; Muslims , Christians , and Jews , alike . Remembering Allah / God / Jehovah , paying HIM homage in our deeds and prayers .Not just something we bring out of the closet like special clothes for special occasions such as Ramadan, Passover, or Christmas , but every day .I am ashamed to admit that " I have to TRY to make TIME for reading the Quran " . What does that say about me ? That I am a slackered that needs to get back on the Straight Path .Wishing you well , Peace out , OTE
