Busy little bee

A'salaamu alaikum ya'll. I am sorry I haven't posted in a bit but well with Ramadhan, my father's death (inna ilayhi wa inna lillahi rajioon), college starting this week, kids going back to school and all that entails PLUS the fact I was in the hospital again this weekend alhamdulillah... I just ain't had the time.

I'm looking at another 6+ week course of really strong iv antibiotics. Alhamdulillah. I would rather look forward to a 6+ weeks of good health but allahu alim. We have to accept the qadr (fate) that Allah gives us. Insha'allah I will feel better, in this life or the next.

Anyway my classes start this week and there is a little stress with the financial aid. I applied 3 months ago but they still do not have my awards in the system. Which is kinda ridiculous as all they need to do is an update I assume since it comes from the FAFSA website, all approved and ready to go.

Insha'allah it will all come together in the next couple of weeks. Of course, right now school is the LAST thing on my mind but you know, it has to be done anyway. I just really feel like I want to move. Blending families is hard and with Aaminah and I coming into a place already set it, its been hard to rearrange, change, and organize. Alhamdulillah I've done ALOT since January but some things can't really be fixed. We are pretty tight in here. We have 6 people in a 3 bedroom apt but 3 of them are girls so they are all crammed in together. Alhamdulillah I am not complaining but to be honest I am dreaming of a little more space.

The thing is, A works where we live so its super convenient plus I get to see him alot during the day. This couldn't happen if we take a place off of the complex. So it's really difficult to decide what to do. I just know these close quarters are getting kinda.... tight. :-) I pray Allah gives us the best for us in both worlds, ameen.

Alright this has been a bit of a disorganized post but that's really like my mind right now so it's appropriate. :-)

Ma salaama ya'll...

I'm really sorry to hear about your father passing. It must be really hard. Inna Lillah wa elayhe Raje3oon.

I feel you on the space. We're also in a 3 br. and looking for a bigger space. We need 4 br or at least 3 with one bigger room for the girls. Definitely need 2 bathrooms!InshaAllah it happens for us both.
