Been a minute

And while Im happy to be back in the UAE, yes there are some of us who genuinely feel this way though we are the minority, I havent quite jumped back into blogging but thats because ive not been doing anything. Went to Al Mushrif and some stores are open but not many...I have to take my car in tomorrow for service because the ac isnt cold and my  blinkers arent working. something TOLD me to get out and look at them!!! Im just hoping that it can be done in that day or that they can order something and have me come back. My saving grace is that, when driving, one doesnt necessarily NEED signals. You just get in where you fit in and its all good. And as I type this, whats even more strange is that I JUST noticed something...and does this mean that Im a good driver????


so today we went to check out that place and it should be a go and we will see. He has high hopes and after seeing it again today my hopes are up as well. If the move takes place,there will be a video posted of the grounds as it is sure to please those who would want a second year upgrade.

and speaking of upgrade. I saw the place new teachers have been put in and theyre really stepping up their game in that regard. I know of someone who went crazy inside the confines of their living arrangement, so much so that they left and if there were to see the diggs that I saw they would more than likely WISH they had been patient and lasted til this year for something else. But alas, everything is not for everyone I suppose. If others arent really pleased with their places, something may be amiss inside,lol.of them I mean,lol. J/K

Yes, work has started.No, I dont ahve anything to say about it. Stay tuned though because I will soon.Lots of new, personalities,pedagogies,ideas,etc.
Something funny happened today. God has a sense of humor. Oh, and from what someone told me today, he also loves me because I think my wish is going to come true in regards to work.

Now if I could just get all of this teacher stuff out of the apartment. My husband would surely be happy!

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
