Salam Ramadhan Kareem...1431H

Salam Ramadhan Kareem to everyone... Today is the 12th day already, how time flies...

Actually, I wanted to write something before Ramadhan but did not have the time to it. I want to ask for forgiveness from everyone who dropped by my humble blog, if I ever hurt anyone. It's definitely not intentional. 0-0 okay.

This is just an update on what has been happening since the beginning of Ramadhan. This is the first Ramadhan that Hadi is fasting, ever. So far, I'm so happy to say that he has not miss a single day of fasting...yet...hehehe. I'm quite surprised that he is so strong, actually.

He did whine though, especially the time after Asar when his hunger pangs are it its worst. The best thing to do is to just ignore his whining, though sometimes it really tested my patience...hehehe. Amir's the only one not fasting and he has been testing Hadi's patience also. The worse thing is he kept on offering food to Hadi. Yesterday, Hadi took a sip of vitagen before he realised he was fasting...hehehe

I'm also busy opening boxes from Sudan. Glad to say that nearly 90% of the boxes are opened and the 'stuff' put away in its respective places...sigh. It was quite difficult to find space for all the stuff...sigh. Sometimes I wonder about other people who had more than 100 boxes to sort out. Mine was only 39 boxes, possibly the lowest number of boxes ever! hehehe...

For those who was kind enough to drop by and leave comments, thank you. I'm not able to bloghop during Ramadhan because I have a mission to khatam the al-quran before Ramadhan ends. I'm way behind my husband who already recite more than 20 juzuk compared to me who only finished juzuk 11. Well, being a naturally competitive person that I am, I normally had a kind of a race with my husband about who managed to read more quran during this holy month...hehehe. But this time, I have 3 kids to take care of on my own... (excuses, excuses...I know...) hehehe

BTW, I managed to bake biskut makmur yesterday morning. Thank you to my neighbour who lend me her oven...hehehe. Though at the rate that Amir's going, there'll be only crumbs of makmur left by Eid...sigh

Last but not least, have a blessed Ramadhan everyone!

Alahai Adik Aku...

This time round I'd like to write about my brother, Mamud. Actually, I've been wanting to write about him for a long time, but don't know how to put it in words.

I gave him a chance to move to the room downstairs as it's much bigger than his room upstairs. He agreed and he finally moved into his room last week. I bought him a nice double bed for his room but it was a bit big and took about 1/2 of the room. Actually there should be enough space for him to put his stuff but...

How could I say this... The problem is that he wanted to put in two big wardrobes in there...sigh. I told him to lose one closet, but he wanted to put in all his stuff in there. Actually his stuff is not that many but when you count all my late brother's belonging as well, it became quite a lot...sigh

It's kind of sad actually because I think Mamud has not moved on. He insisted on keeping all Ayang's stuff, all his shirts even. When I came back in 2008, I managed to give away a few of Ayang's clothes, otherwise everything's basically intact. Mamud decided to keep them all for himself...sigh

Both of them were not that close when Ayang was alive and maybe this is a way for Mamud to be close to Ayang's memory. I don't know. So back to the problem at hand, his room now resemble a storeroom...hehehe. But he finally agreed to let go of one closet, only to put in a smaller one inside. And there were a lot of his stuff still in the living room! My living room is now a big store room!

Everything's so messy...sigh. And the best thing is my contena from Sudan is coming this Tuesday. Even though there's only about 30 odd boxes, but it's still 30 too many. That's another thing, on Friday I got a call from Subalipak apologising that they could not send my boxes on that day, they will only arrive on Saturday. I panicked and told them that I didn't even know that the boxes are arriving that soon. Then we decided to have the boxes delivered on Tuesday...sigh. The day before Ramadhan... I could feel a headache coming on...sigh...

So, I'll write more when the boxes arrive. Now, I have one day to clear all this mess first! Au revoir!

I've been neglecting this blog lately. I've been busy running around actually. Since the kids started school, I've been running around after them...sigh. I've been driving more than 100km per day! Seriously!

Weekends have been hectic also...sigh. So many things have happened but I'm too tired to blog while in between 'runs'...hehehe. Anyway, I'll blog when I can, insyaallah.
