I got the tickets!

My professor agreed to let me take my exam two days earlier so I could leave earlier to see my husband. I got the tickets already :D and I can't wait :) I'm so excited and hope everything goes well, isA.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving which means I'll be with family/friends all day :)

I have some stuff on my mind but don't know if I'm going to post it yet or not, depends how fast it annoys me...

Fast-A-Thon 2009

I don't know which schools do this but it's a day where the MSA gets students to pledge to fast and local businesses pledge money that is then donated to the local food bank. We also feed the students that pledged iftar. Well, we had this event this past Thursday, and it was a success elhamdallah. We raised like 200 for the food bank. There was a nice speaker about fasting likenesses in between religions but the sad part was that as soon as the speaker started, most of the non-muslims left :( But anywho, I had fun, but ate too much and was soooo tired/out of it and still had to drive home.

Hmmmm, news... almost done with this semester!!! I'm still looking for flights to go see my hubby, I REALLLLLY want to, and I just found out his dad will be there while I would. I haven't met him in person yet because he works in KSA but i really would like to meet my father in law. As of right now the flights are 1700 so I hope they go down isA.

Praying with spouse

I was just wondering how everyone feels when you both pray together. I've only done it a few times but I enjoy it. I feel like were strengthening our relationship with God and each other at the same time.

I don't know if there's anything (surah or hadith) about praying with ones wife or not? Anyone know?

I'm Debating

I realllly want to go see my husband. I'm thinking of going to see him during winter break for college. But I'm also trying to get a job. If I get a job I won't be able to go because I can't take 3 weeks off during Christmas when that's why they hire me. But to be honest, I don't think they're going to hire a Muslim when they have so many white/non-Muslim girls to choose from. They're not supposed to discriminate, but really they do.

If I don't get a job I'm pretty sure I'm going to go. I just need to find a decent priced ticket. That's the other thing, my exams end RIGHT before Chirstams so of course the airlines jack up the prices sky high. I'm going to talk to my professor about my last exam and see if he will let me take it a few days early so I can leave on Wednesday instead of Friday.

What makes no sense what so ever is that it would be cheaper for me to take a train to Chicago and get a flight from there than it would be to take the flight from the big international airport an hr away from me. I mean like 200 dollars cheaper (including the train.)

So right now I'm monitoring ticket prices and hoping they will go down when a lot of people don't travel because of the economy.
