I am back! If you were unaware, I was just doing itikaf and right before I left my computer charger cable died and we just bought a new one (which was highway robbery… 104 dollars with taxes for a charger… really, apple?) and I am now in New York and going to be in Virginia tomorrow, then Washington DC for a few days, then back to Ontario. It is an adventure.
Today has been great, though. I woke up after a few hours of sleep at 8 to go to eid prayers, then we left and I slept most of the day and woke up only to throw a tantrum because my blood sugars were low and I wanted to stop for food and I was sleepy and turned into Betty White for a few minutes. And then we stopped at Cracker Barrel which, for those of you who do not know, is a good ol’ homestyle restaurant in the States where macaroni and cheese is listed as a vegetable and I had two fried chicken breasts the size of my face and some mac&cheese and now I am lounging in a hotel that sells Ben&Jerry’s in the lobby.
Quite a bit better than last year’s eid, if I do say so myself.
