2 miles… February 27, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — shezahasan @ 7:58 pm

Ladies and gentleman, we have progress! alhamdolillah we have moved onto two miles today. So within 30 mins, alhamdolillah we’re able to accomplish a good two miles mashaAlllah. I was hoping to do a mile for a week before moving on to 2 miles. but for the 1 mile video, Leslie wears a blue top and for the 2 mile she wears pink. Pink being the new flair for Eesa, he insisted we do the two mile today. Alhamdolillah it felt GREAT! and yeah we clocked in 2000+ ticks right there on the pedometer! So if I’ve had 2000 ticks at 9am, i’m hoping to come close to 5k tonight iA. I’ll keep u guys posted on it!:P

We had a pretty serious booboo in the house last night. Eesa was helping me do the dishes while sitting on the counter. He got up to get the kitchen towel and fell off the counter, face first onto the tiles on the ground. When he got up, I was really scared for a moment coz his face was full of blood but I couldn’t tell where it was coming from. Finally after washing up, I realized that it was coming from his nose and front two teeth and lips. Alhamdolillah he was being really brave and stopped crying when I told him its hurting me to see him this way. I was worried he might have broken his nose but he said his lips were hurting more. There was a pretty deep cut on his upper lip but alhamdolillah the bleeding stopped once i applied ice. I was scared i would have to take him to the hospital but with my CAS file closing just the week before, I really didn’t want to take a risk. Alhamdolillah, he’s much much better now. His upper lip is super swollen so it looks like donald duck pouting! lol.

Imo’s been in calgary since yest morning. Alhamdolillah I don’t know what it is, but I’ve been able to accomplish half of my list of to-do’s already. Before he left, the list looked so daunting, but mashaAllah its not sooo bad anymore. Since yesterday morning, I’ve been able to shine up the dishwasher, stove and fridge(never get stainless steel appliances, TRUST ME!), re-arrange my dishes in the kitchen cabinets, cook up everything i would need for dinner this week,  scrub out the front foyer tiles, wash all three washrooms (like REALLY wash, not the daily kind of stuff) and run three loads of laundry. All this while having attended two conference calls and having caught up on all the work related pending emails. Alhamdolillah!! I feel like an accomplished maid, err… mom! (arent those two interchangeable in North America, anyway?)

Alfalah has a qiyaam night for the guys so us girlies are having a sleepover at my place iA (with our babies ofcourse!) I’m totally looking forward to a girly night with tons of babies in the house iA! We were rarely allowed sleepovers whiel we were growing up and now that I’m grown and married – this is something I’m totally relishing! That and the fact that I can stay out for as long as I want.

I’ve got some piccys of Hana that Aasiya took at the halaqa at Nada’s place last Saturday. I was super excited coz I finally got a chance to take piccys with Hana, only to realize its without hijab and I can’t share them online. InshaAllah, i may just create an online album or something =P
