Let it go

Im chilling at home alone and appreciating it so much. Been out and about and done some new things today but I'll get into that later.
People have begun to call and thats wonderful. Im holding the rattan for a girl till payday. I definitely know how that is!!! Just watched a tatted dude and his sister leave with the fridge and left me with $$$. Gotta feel good about that, right?
A lady called about the DR table. After calling her and leaving message, I guess she'll be calling soon to set up a time/date to view. After looking at tables in various stores the other day, 75 bucks is a sweet deal! hmmm, I need to tighten up the chairs before she comes too.

I have a couple items im waiting on to post-the couch,the bed, and the desk. This is definitely happening!

So I decided that I was going to the GOODWILL. I see shirts that are good BUT the sleeves dont go all the way down to my wrists and that could potentially pose a problem. To avoid all that, Im trying to go over with a few shirts and hopefully get to wear some abaya's to work. This is where my new experience begins. . .

Ive gone in goodwill before. They often have great things for my classroom but,for some reason, the clothes thing has been something Ive not been interested in at all. For one, the smell doesnt make me want to rifle through clothes that are too packed on racks and who have been worn by only God knows who. After talking to someone else about it, I also realized that I don't like digging anywhere-even when the clothes are new BUT I was still turned off by the idea and the action.
So Im in there and I see 2 skirts that were great for wearing there and I got them for about 5 bucks each (actually a little less),and then I got some long sleeve shirts. I got everything in an XL if possible because I wasnt about to try the items on. But I can say that I got a LOT for 34.00. About 6 shirts and 2 skirts. Can't beat that,lol. After awhile, the smell was gone-or I'd gotten used to it I should say. I wish I had a washer in my apt!!!

So, technically, that was the beginning of my new experiences.

Now Im going to go and iron my clothes so that I can go to the flea market next weekend to sell every article for $4.00 and as I type this I think about how ironic (and perhaps hypocritical) that is. OH WELL

C'est la vi

shwaya arabi

Being here for so long makes me feel like I should be speaking more Arabic. Some people here will ask you why you don't know more.I even had a rude guy tell me how he speaks English and that I should be speaking Arabic. Im sure it didn't cross his mind that he has many opportunities to practice using English because that is what is used everywhere. In regards to Arabic, not only is it not often used in public places but there are different dialects so words I learn at school may have no meaning if you are not Emirati.  Anyway, I started my list with about 70 and have and will add to it as words cross my mind.Im sure when school starts again Ill remember some more!

Brace yourself.

It's coming.

Piles of things with nowhere to go and an impending deadline. You have a million things to do so you begin the arduous task of figuring out what to keep and what to let go of. In the beginning, it seems easy enough. Maybe you don't have lots of things. In which case, the above picture will never be you. In most cases, however, just get your tissue ready. Or your bottle of libation. Whichever suits your fancy.

Let me start with the process of letting things go. Because I am so smart, I began paring down months ago. It felt good and I was so proud of myself for being on top of things. After that, I began to walk around my house and think about what I would post things for when the time came. I decided I didn't want the hassle of bargaining so I would post things for a ridiculous price. Satisfied that I had time, I continued on with daily life. Fast forward some months and we get the paper work. It is so confusing that I set it aside and figured …

Moroccanoil Soap

If youve read this blog for any length of time, Im sure youve gotten your laughs off my Moroccan bath experience. As crazy as that was for me, i believe I will be going to get one again, though at a much better establishment!
Today, I ran across this product

 And while waiting in line for a price, an Arabic lady gave it the once over, looked inside, and nodded her head in approval of what was inside. After seeing it was only 9.50 dhm, I got another. Once I try it, I will certainly give a review! In the meantime, here is information about the product-or products like this:

Moroccan Black Soap and How To Use It

The black soap is part of the traditional hammam ritual. It is the first treatment in oriental public bath. With a texture of butter, this natural vegetable paste based with black olives is rich in vitamin E.
