Abu Dhabi

Apologies for not posting in a few weeks - I have been just plain bummed out.

The reason: Jack, the love of my life & father of my children is going to work in Abu Dhabi. Yeah, no shit - Abu freaking Dhabi!!

Fun facts: as well as being just a fun name to say, Abu Dhabi is also the capital city of the United Arab Emirates. UAE is a country located between Saudi Arabia and Oman. Sadly, until recently I have only ever known Abu Dhabi as the place where Garfield always threatened to mail the cute kitten Nermal. My age is showing here a bit.

So Jack is going over there to do some consulting work for drilling rig construction. He will be gone for at least a month. I guess I am "fairly" okay with it now. But it sure hit home hard yesterday that he was really going when he went for his Typhoid & other various travel immunizations.

Well out of curiosity, I just checked the weather over there - it is a balmy 107 degrees Fahrenheit with mild to moderate dust levels.
Well there you go - I don’t believe Jack has ever been that hot before in his life. He has been that dusty before - so at least he has got that one covered.

I will post more later - I have been knitting lately. I know, knitting?!?
Yep, knitting cures the soul. Okay so maybe I am just a closet geek - whatever.
