Today I thought it was a good day to go to the beach...better than yesterday...until I actually got outside and got a look toward where the water lies.

We went out toward the corniche to run a couple errands. The breeze was wonderful, the water was pretty too but you couldnt see the beach from across the street. Its strange because because you think you wont be able to see anything but once you get to that area, its seems to be normal.

I wonder what this smog is made of. When I get time Ill be sure to google it. Im certainly happy I dont have asthma or anything.If I did I may just be in trouble.

Today we went to spinneys. We had hotdogs and baked beans for lunch. hmmmm.I was thinking of baked beans the other day but didnt give too much thought to it. Im running out of things to cook but its no different from home. My palette is tired of the same old thing. Ill probably go to eating cereal for lunch and/or dinner to give my tongue a rest.

Today I have to go grocery shopping and possibly to get some curtain rods.I wont have too high hopes because Ive gone many times before. The difference now is that he will be with me and he can actually visualize what will fit.Im sure if I HAD to, Id get it done but ugh, its so irritating!

Ive learned how lucky I am to have regular access to INGLOT, a makeup store that only has two locations at home. Neither of which are close to me. apparently, their pigment is better than MAC and are at a fraction of the cost. I have so much eye shadow but I do want to give them a try.

My birthday is coming.I dont know what we are going to do. Maybe nothing but I hope not.

Its still early, maybe Ill get into something tonite. For right now Im about to print some things out for work.yes, work! Better now than when Im back at work.Besides its either that or mindless net searching.

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:
