A post... WOW!

Well, I have a post. nothing much new, just an update. dh should be home anytime this week, Inshallah. Just waiting on a plane out of Iraq. I hope and pray he gets to Germany, plane ticket prices are crazy for any place else. doesn't help that we don't have any notice. That is ok, as long as he gets home, Inshallah. Kids are on spring break next week, perfect timing. My daffodils have poked through, hope the weather stays nice. I need spring, really I do! lol get out in the garden, clean up the yard, etc. My oldest daughter has been on a 'why do we do that' kick. why can't muslim women wear short sleeves, what is the big deal about arms? this is just one of what seems like a zillion questions. Thankfully, I have been able to answer her so far. Ah, children. My son is on the everything is haram kick. example... is it haram to wear shoes without socks? lol they are funny, if nothing else. anyone else get these kind of question, or is it just me? well, that is my update. hope all bloggers are doing well.

He's coming, but not staying.

Well, it looks like dh will be home sometime after the 14th or 15th of this month. waiting on someone to come back from leave so they aren't shorthanded. However, this is only a vacation. He will be returning to Iraq for another year. He had been thinking about staying here for about 6-8 months, then returning to Iraq. I said, if you are bound and determined to return, do it now. We are used to you being gone and if you do that, it will just make it that much harder on the kids and I. So, that is latest. He loves the job, he loves the people he is with, American and Iraqi and he just feels that he is needed there right now. So, we will see what happens. Allah Kareem.

Interview questions from Ethnically Incorrect

For Um Hakima, our American Muslim SAHM
1. What is a movie or book that you could watch or read over and over again and still not get tired of it?
Well, how bout a movie and a book? lol I am a Patrick Swayze fan so I have seen Dirty Dancing and Roadhouse more times than I can count! Just can't help it, sorry. As for books, I absolutely love Stephen King. Any book I could/have read more than once. Many think he is off, and I think so too, but I love his books.

2. What has given you strength while dh has been away?
I wish I could say my faith, which of course, always helps, but I haven't felt really steadfast since dh has been gone, no particular reason why. I would have to say my best friend here, Miss B. She is just awesome. She loves my kids like her own, she knows how to handle my "moodiness" with a smile, etc. If she wasn't here, I would have probably had to move so I could live with Sister Scorpion! LOL

3. Do you think the elections will make a difference in how fast the situation in Iraq will improve?
I am not really sure, so I will give hubby's humble opinion since he is there right now. He says that elections have helped the Iraqi morale somewhat. He feels the 2 biggest problems are the porous borders and the lack of Iraqis having pride in themselves. He says that most of the terrorist problems are caused by foreigners, not Iraqis. He also says that the Iraqi people have been so beaten down over the years by saddam, sanctions, etc. that they can't really worry about anything other than shelter and food. He said the only way to fix anything is to close off the borders so that terrorists cannot get in and then to rebuild ASAP so that the Iraqi people can begin to have pride in their country.

4. What is the most outrageous stunt you pulled as a child? Oh, well. to be brutally honest or not to be brutally honest. what the heck. When I was 12 years old, I got into a huge fight with my dad. After my parents went to bed, I snuck out of the house and took their Plymouth Horizon. I drove to my pastor's house because I wanted to talk to him about dad. Well, the problem was, it was after midnight and I wasn't sure where he lived. I gave up looking around 2 am and drove back home. My parents were still sleeping when I got back and to this day, they have no idea what I did.

5. How do you feel about plaid? lol
I can't stand it, in any way, shape or form! lol

So, now, anyone who wants to be interviewed, please comment. the following are the interview rules.
