Ramadhan journal: Day 5

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll and a HUGE "grrrr". I had my post completed and then, thanks to my nimble fingers, obviously managed to select all text and in the next keystroke... you guessed it, erased my entire post. Hmm. Sorry this won't be as interesting as the original.:-)

Day 5 recap:

Ibadah: prayed 8 rakaat taraweeh, did extra dhikr, prayed some sunnah prayers
Iftar: at masjid, spicy Indian food=McDs fish sandwich for me!
Overall grade: Incomplete

Why an incomplete? Because I had to break my fast due to my ongoing health saga. I don't think it's too dramatic to call it a "saga". :-) Anyway I started getting the symptoms of a UTI again so I had to stop it and drink, drink, drink. I think I will take 2 days off and then fast every other day unless the problem persists. I don't want to miss the experience of fasting but neither do I want to harm myself. Wa Allahu alim.

OK so there is my condensed post. I am sure I had some really witty observations or maybe even a pithy one or two but alas, they got thrown out with the dishwater. I'll still do daily updates but be prepared to be under-whelmed. :-)

Ma salaama ya'll!

Hope you feel better soon -- that's a good reason to stop fasting. UTI's can be so painful!!

Valerie, thanks for stopping by. Yeah UTIs are no fun! Hmmm yet another painful thing men don't usually experience along with cramps and childbirth. :-)

Salaam and thanks again!

I hope it clears up quick, that sucks. I hate when I lose a post. Sometimes it saves in draft but yea I've deleted my own stuff too.

You know, I had hoped it had autosaved, and it did... the letter "m". LOL
