These are some cupcakes that I made for teacher appreciation day at the kid's school. But I'm sure you can imagine that I have bigger things on my mind. Yet somehow focusing on cupcakes makes things seem more manageable.

The new place is small but good. DH has so many issues... WOW. My baby will be one, insha'Allah, on the 4th. My store has to be moved by the first and I don't even have a new storefront yet. I am treading this bizarre path back to the certainty I had about the deen when I made shahada, and it's slow and mind boggling, and deserves it's own post. DH might go to Egypt without the family to save some $ in a few weeks and it will be the first time we have been apart for more than a week since we married. This week we should get the news about the development of a property we have been working on and see if the city will let us do what we want to do or not.

Anywhoooo.... I am just kinda rediscovering my entire life these days. It is weird, but there are so many things going on for us lately. So, here I am sitting online at 5am trying to decide how to use my Shukr store credit, ordering some things from land's end and finding deals on essentials that I can't get in WY on Amazon.... Allah help me through this weird time.

Asalaam Alaikum Sister,

Inshallah things will slow down for you soon. Personally I am beginning to think it never does slow down, lol.

May Allah bless you and your family,

At the following link you will read about the 49,981 signatures have now been received on a terrible petition against the London 'Mega mosque' based on incorrect and inciteful information. This shows the existence of the intolerance and Islamophobia in Britain.

The mosque would provide a place of worship and show Britains tolerance and multiculturalism. It is now the duty of Muslims and evey citizen to sign the counter-petition to BUILD the 'Mega Mosque'.

Please sign at the link below, forward email it to your friends, post it in forums you visit and promote this on your site/blog.
