We got word this week that we are in the works and that they were told we would be in the country by the end of this week.
Today, I find out that that PROOOOBABLY wont happen. I took it in stride.

I remember what I was told: EXPECT NOTHING

and I realize people cant live like this. Let me take that back. . .People in OUR culture cant live like this. And Im actually surprised at myself with how easily I have been going along with things. Im a little proud of myself and I definintely recognize personal growth.

Talked in some length to others waiting just as I am. Some of them are feeling LOW and I definitely relate. The only difference is my change in attitude recently and how I now view things. Worry and faith cannot occupy the same space so I choose to go with the latter.

In regards to actually being there, I know the grass is always greener but those people also have higher water bills. I heard that on the radio the other day and I said I was going to use it,lol.

In the meantime, Im trying to enjoy my time with my hubby and other family members. Fortunately, for me, I havent been waiting for too long because of my healing process. That makes me more ok with the waiting because I havent been per se. I may have been the only person hoping I didnt have a ticket,lol.

With that said, Im not too disappointed even though I was hoping for pay this month and thats not going to happen. Now if I dont get an October paycheck there will definitely be a problemo!!!

Of course, all this could change and we COULD get a ticket anywhere from wed-fri.

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:
