Tired but pleased

Ok, so maybe Im not THIS tired but Im close!

If I dont go to bed by 930 on school nights I mess up my week. If I start out that way, I can slack off as the week progresses. Its already Monday and I have Salsa tomorrow night so I HAVE TO get to sleep early (not just on time) tonite to catch up. Noone wants to know the sleepy me:


  • Productive! yaaaaaaaay me!
  • Was able to have a good center time and my math group did very well with our activity and made it to the end even though some of them were itching to go to another table.
  • The fruit and vegetable market is khalas and now we have the "animal hospital". Easier to pronounce than veterinarian. Easier to spell too,lol.
  • Changed out some of the student work
  • My teacher talked about how the kids are progressing and shes happy about their progress. She also said she told her friends about how Im always working and changing things in the room to keep the kids interested
  • One of the girls gave me a thumbs up after checking out the new dramatic play area
  • My teacher gave me this yummy thing that was kind of like a vegetable roll but not a roll.idk but it was GOOD
  • My homemade playdough was successful thanks to a fellow teacher who gave me the perfect-PERFECT- recipe that easy so easy.You place all ingredients in the microwave and heat.In less than 5 mins you have perfectly good playdough.
Now Im home after an unsuccessful attempt to obtain my insurance card. I wont even go into that.Im going to cook dinner and play a game or two of darts.Maybe even check for any new episodes of CSI.

Salsa soiree tomorrow
Maya island Friday afternoon
possibly hip hop night Thursday night
anniversay AND birthday coming up
cuban pool party later this month

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
