Like the deserts miss the rain...

I have been busy.

I have been busy juggling with the new baby, his sister the jealous porcupine, his other rebellious sister, his happy-go-lucky brother, last but not least... his quality-control father.

I have been busy with my thesis, seminar and conferences, publication, teaching workload.

I have been busy with the house chores. Cooking, washing, cleaning, blabbering, nagging...

On top of everything, I feel old, tired and perhaps rusty too. Start to snore when asleep. Capable of dozing off while mopping the floor.

This blog has been totally quiet and dead for the past four months. Even my followers ran away one by one. I used to have 47 followers, three were struck with boredom so they ran off leaving the other 44 still contemplating either to follow suit or show some pity and stay. And within these four months of being absent, I later discovered that I've missed too many things about my dearie sister bloggers.

I feel so bad.
Please forgive me.

Missed you much. All of you. That's for sure.

Please remember me in your duas. I need strength to finish my thesis. Just a li'l bit more.

Just a li'l bit more.....



  1. Dear sister!
    It's great to hear news from you and it's totally understandable that you've been away! It's only good for your family that you've been busy with them :) <3 I hope everything's well and that your baby is well too! May Allah (swt) bless you and your family!

  2. EVen if I am one of one follower left on your blog, I will still stay. Love you and so good to see your post. Hugs

  3. As-salaamu-alaykum sister Ati

    You may have been quiet but some of us have not forgotten you. I for one have missed your posts and I am so glad to hear from you, although it seems that you are very overburdened at present.

    I pray that Allah Almighty eases your load and helps you to finish that thesis, inshaa Allah soon things will get easier, and the work will get done.

    You are in our prayers and know that you are truly missed when not in cyberspace.

    Stay well dear sister and all the best.


  4. Dear rose water, Blue Pearl and Zarina,

    Masya-Allah.... I am so blessed having nice sisters like all of you around me. Alhamdulillah. Your words work wonders, comforting me when my heart is heavy. Thank you so much for your duas and this meaningful friendship. I love all of you so much!

    rose water: I'll try post something about the baby soon, insya-Allah. He's simply adorable!

    Blue Pearl: don't you dare leave me, ever! *hugs*

    Zarina: Waalaikum salam, sis! I miss you terribly. But I am glad you stick with me till the end. JazakAllahu khair!

  5. You look like you're drop dead tired and rambling like an old maid. :o God Bless u.

  6. khanumsays,

    Yes, you are totally right...*sigh* But on the contrary, alhamdulillah, I am happy too...

    I sense that you are new to this blog. Welcome! Hope you like it. Take care now. Wassalam.

  7. Assalamu'alaikum, Atie! The picture you posted says everything. There's no need to apologize; we understand. Good luck with the thesis! When is it due?

  8. Dear Nadia,

    I have no choice but to take him together with me when I study, hence the situation you saw. Nevertheless, alhamdulillah, he is such a nice boy, never gave me any hardship so far (other than the period when he was hospitalised due to his premature condition).

    Actually I have already submitted my thesis (draft) for review few days before I gave birth. The supervisors have reviewed it and returned it to me for some amendments. I am working on it right now, this time the due date will be on 30 Sept. If all goes well, I can finalise my draft end of this year and submit the thesis for viva. oooooohh... scary...
