getting out from under/the annual I Hate Ramadan post

I'm back from my epic visit to the Pacific Northwest. It was wonderful to stay with JaneAnne in Portland, Donna in the environs of Eugene, and Mandy in Seattle. I had a great time just hanging out in a family context, and getting to know the spouses and kids better. It was an interesting sociological sampling too: a small LDS family, a large LDS family, and a small interfaith/intercultural family. Also each friend came from a different stage of my life, so that was cool too - I'm just so impressed that we could just pick up like no time had passed. Even though I may never become a biological mother, I'm glad I was able to share a little bit of that experience. Photos forthcoming!

And now back to work and trying to catch up with all the excitement that happened while I was gone. It doesn't help that Ramadan started and MoBob is Grouchy for God. Yes, please, more Ramadrama. Exactly what I need. Grr.

I snorted Fresca through my nose, I'll have you know.

Grumpy for God?

Ramadrama?

Seriously.

Yeah. This upcoming Sunday should be fun, as MB always mocks me for not being able to last until 3pm or so.

When we lived in Morocco I used to call him up around sundown during Ramadan and make him listen to the sound of frying bacon.

Not much as fun living it as saying it I'm afraid!

LOL!
Grouchy for God!

That's fabulous! Can I get that on a bumper sticker?

Perhaps you should invite MoBob to fast with you once a month when you do. That way, he'll have practice sessions under his belt for the heavy weight fasting of Ramadrama.

I know it's wrong to giggle at others' pain, but I love your annual anti-Ramadrama post.

"Grouchy for God" is GOLD. Love it. Sounds like what VP's experiencing in Somalia.
