Me: Habibi I'm getting soooooo OLD!

Husband: huh???

Me: You know I will be 28 in two months. Why do I have to get old?

Husband: you know you still look 21 don't you

Me: What do you want from me?

Husband: So, uh... What are you and Abdu doing today?

HAHAHAHAHA I can't even take a dang compliment anymore. If he doesn't say nice things I'm all over him. If he says something nice, I think he has an ulterior motive. He just can't win and he knows it.

BTW I was just barely 21 when we got married and at that time people thought I was 17.

I don't know what's wrong with me lately. I know that I"m not old, but I feel like in the last two years I've aged a lifetime. I've got to start taking care of my skin or I'll look like an old bag in a few years.

I'm busy in the kitchen today so hopefully I"ll have a new recipe post(with pictures) real soon.

Just wait until you turn 30. 30 was massive no fun. I felt ancient. My husband being about 1/3 gray at age 34 does not help either.

Salamu alaikum, hon. :)

aaah. at least you're still in your twenties! i NEVER thought i'd be someone who cared about my age - but then I felt SO strange when i turned 30 - last year! i suddenly felt...old. i started worrying about things going to pot. flops, wrinkles, aches, pains, creakings...

30 was a big wakeup call that my 20s, so vivid and important in my memory, were over. i couldn't believe i could now say that i'd known some of my friends for 10 years. heh heh

i just turned 31 a couple weeks ago. i didn't feel quite so strange this time...'cause 30 was the launching pad into this era.

i DID however buy my first anti-wrinkle cream. LOL. i hear you about feeling like an old bag.

i miss you & your funny self. want to come over sometime? i know you're so busy....but hey! keep it in mind.

Assalamu Alaykum,

I can't wait for your new recipe!

Hope you are also feeling better.

I think when we go through suh an emotional and long journey, we come out feeling like a dinosaur. the good news is that you are more deeply introspective. I have the feeling that once your husband returns your going to feel like a 17 year old again. Good husbands make you feel young, like there's nothing you can't do after all. Love you!

Assalamu alaykum ukhti umm abdurrahman

this is my response to you on my blog, bu in case you missed it i wanted to write to you here.

sis, you can whine and complain to me anytime ... and if anyone else makes u feel like a burden for ANY problem (never mind the ones you mentioned!) then they have issues! subhanALlah, that is something terribly wrong with this ummah, we should be helping each other so so so much and people either do not want to tell what is in their hearts (for the reasons u mentioned) or they cant be bothered to help! Astaghfiruallah!

please email me ummtravis at live dot com, please sis, i dont know what i can do from egypt, but the more sisters we connect with,the better our chances for survival in this dunya

i am so sorry for your difficulties, i cant imagine that at all, i would die inside, i really would!

are you able to make hijrah to another muslim country for example? ya Allah, may He make it easy for you.

I wish i could help. really. sometimes it sucks so much when i hear of problems only becuz it hurts me i cant do more, but wallahi if there is anything i can do let me know.

and come complain on my space anytime!

Get yourself glowing sis he will be home soon ameeen.
