What if I started blogging again? It has been over six months since my last post. I think Facebook sucked me in and I neglected my blog. Also, I ran out of things to say. Maybe I have a little more to say now.
It is Independence Day. We have our U.S. flag out in front of the house. I have chicken tikka marinading in the fridge. I will also grill some portabella mushrooms and asparagus.
We spent a year in an apartment in NoVa and recently purchased and moved into a townhouse. I am now a real live suburban housewife.
I have started volunteering at a local center that assists low income people/families, and Inshallah I will start working there as a part time employee after Ramazan while my kids are in school. D. will be starting kindergarten, and A. will start pre-school. I haven’t told anyone about the job yet. I wanted to teach ESL at a local college or institute, but nobody called me back for an interview. So I figured a position like this in which I get to do community service and also which allows me to work only during school hours would be best. I am excited about the employment…and the paychecks, small as they may be.
Life is well. I am off to start the chimney for my charcoal grill. Happy Fourth of July!
