What A Wasted Day!


Where did this day go? What a waste! I just camped out on the couch and played trivia games, because my allergies are still bad. I did read a couple of chapters in my Sister Fidelma book. I loaded too many things onto my phone.

I should have written some of my book. Last night I drafted an outline for a book about my journey toward Islam. John had once mentioned that maybe I should try my hand at writing. I wondered, “What would I write about?” and then I remembered someone once said to write about what you know. I don’t think that I have the imagination to come up with a novel. So maybe someone might be interested in how a woman born into a Catholic family in a small upstate New York city became a Muslima. But I only have an outline at this point.

Allergies were so bad again that I couldn’t even make it to OASIS for my play-reading class. How disappointing. Tomorrow I HAVE to go out to jury duty.

Hannah was very quiet today. Still drinking water only, not eating. She was in bed last night already when I went to bed.

I would like to go to the Masjid tonight for Salaat, but I will more than likely not get my act together to go.

Joanne sent me a new photo of Evalynn. She is growing quickly. I forwarded it to Sabrina and the girls. I also posted it on Facebook.

I need to eat something.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

      Ayesha,
      I’m glad you found my blog. I don’t mind anyone reading it, except I have to be careful how I word things because Sabrina gets upset if she’s in there and it’s not complimentary. My book is coming along nicely. I have to talk to my cousin who has publishing contacts to get it published. This weekend I’m going to an Imagine Peace summit at a high school here and we have two session where a Muslim (me), a Jew, and a Christian will talk to the kids about our religions and their similarities and differences. It’s part of our Tri-Faith Dialogue group that we formed in 1999, long before Islamophobia got so bad here in USA because of the terror attacks on 9/11. So anything we can do to bring people together we try to do. Inshallah the talks will turn out to be interesting and enjoyable. When Barbie (the Jew of our little God Squad) asked how she would recognize me, I told her I’d be the one in the hijab. She laughed and said, “of course!” Enjoy my blogs. Assalam alaykum.
