I don’t know if you know anything about me, well, you know as much as I tell you. BUT if you’ve been paying attention AT ALL, you know I LOVE Grey’s Anatomy. I quote the show as much as humanly possible and if you’ve read my Cast of Characters, you know that. I love this show so much that I was bereft when my beloved Christina Yang left.  I dance things out, I tell people to choose me, love me… Read more

On Monday, I started talking about Hot Takes, and I think I went off topic a little. Then I got wordy and thought I’d loose you before I got back around to the point, so I wrapped things up. But I still have more to say. This is Part 2. This month the writers of the Patheos Muslim Channel are opening up about their feelings on the hot take, a quick response to a current event, political debate or issues of… Read more

This month the writers of the Patheos Muslim Channel are opening up about their feelings on the hot take, a quick response to a current event, political debate or issues of the moment. I have to say, I am not in love with them. Yesterday, I was in a meeting about a new project that I’m working on and we were discussing terms of engagement. You know, the list of rules that are often unspoken, but in this day and… Read more

Big Sis is back home. She arrived back in May and we had just settled back into our regular morning routine when Ramadan came around, then the end of the school year, and we travelled for Eid. During the Summer, Big Sis got a job and we started working on driving lessons, but then she got a second job. A more career focused one. I’m really happy for her, she is making great strides towards her goal and her life… Read more

This is another one of those posts I started this year and then set aside. It’s time to finish. Earlier this year, we went on a family trip for Spring Break. We traveled to a beautiful beach in Florida and did a really low-key week, enjoying the ocean, the beach and the sun. We decided this was most probably the last Spring Break trip we’d have as a family until all the children were out of college, so we wanted… Read more

I’m a TV junkie. I don’t watch T.V., I record it, then watch at my leisure. Sometimes an episode a week, sometimes I binge watch, and sometimes I bank them for the Winter and Summer hiatus. Some people say its a time suck. Some people say its a waste of time. Some people don’t enjoy the escape. I do. When I was growing up, we always had the TV on. It was background noise, it was something to gather us… Read more

Hi there! I started this post back in May. Seriously. Right before Ramadan started, I sat down to tell you about what was going on. Then I got wrapped up in tending my people. Waking up, feeding everyone, holding all the feelings together, spending time with my people, reaching out to new people, learning, loving and growing. But not talking much. I’ve had a difficult time talking this year. These days I can’t find that quiet space I need to hear my… Read more

On the 4th day of Ramadan, I was the contributing writer on the AltMuslim blog for the series, Ramadan 2017 – 30 Days 30 Writers. Ramadan Prep? What Prep? ‘I Just Wing it.’ I promise I was paying attention. I knew it was coming. The weekly sermons leading up to Ramadan kept reminding us about preparing. How to fast. When to fast. What to do, what not to do. The emotional and spiritual work that we should do. Last Friday… Read more
