Saba al Khair!

I woke up this morning to a message from NBAD. Who says we are lowly servants they could care less about? We got paid early because of the Christmas holiday which means it HAD to be acknowledged and a respected part of our culture for someone to give the go ahead.

And while most of my comments are either positive or neutral, I do realize that some have issues. I do think that the KG teaching life is a lot easier on the brain (and body) and allows me to stay in a (mostly) happy place.

Me and my happy place will be preparing for Mr. D to come over Saturday. We are going to spend a few days in Dubai to see the sights. The mall, of course. Also the Global Village. IDK what else but Ill see when we get there. Prior to that, we will spend Christmas day seeing the 11 million dollar Christmas tree, going to the corniche ride bikes. Maybe have lunch at Yafoolis, and a dinner date somewhere if hes up for it. I know when I came in, I didnt have much jet lag to speak of. Sleeping the entire flight helps I think especially when you land in the morning, which he will be.

Maybe Ill get out today. . .or not.
Im going to lay back down and think on it awhile.

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!

GET OUT

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:
