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.

glad to see you back.

Abu Dhabi and the UAE in general are relatively decent places. I am sure some of them (as with the case anywhere) aren't so nice but of the places to go in the Middle East that would be my first choice.

I on the other hand have spent a lot of time over there in places that were Not my first choice.

But nothing anywhere prepares a person for 120 degrees Fahrenheit with 90 percent humidity.

Oh, that is a nice place to go. I had the pleasure of going to Al Kabar in Saudi for three weeks in AUGUST. It was so hot, just unreal. Tommy has it nailed. Who the heck would have thought that it was so humid in a desert. Just unreal.

Back to the real Jack. The UAE is good. It is safe. No worries. A month sucks though.

I always hated Nermal! And what kind of name is that for a cat anyway?

Abu Dhabi is not that bad -- it's safer than a lot of places in the middle east.

Maybe you can use your month apart to er, knit more?

According to a security report I read - UAE is supposedly one of the safest middle east countries. And in fact have very few public reactions to incidents in Iraq or Palestine. In addition - the country is trying to delcare itself malaria free.

The distance will be hard, but it is for a month and that should go pretty fast.

It's good to see you posting again - I was getting a little worried.

Don't worry it's a nice place and the whores are cheap and realtively clean.

It's tough to spend a month apart, but you'll pull through. It'll be over in no time. Though he'll probably be shaking dust out of his socks and underwear for months to come.

Missed reading your blogs... glad you updated. Bummer about the month apart. Sounds like it isn't as bad as first appears (with concern to safety). I've never been but that's good to hear from people who have.

Knitting rocks. Well, I think crochet is more fun and my true love is cross stitch but I gotta support anyone who handworks thread or yarn!

Also, I second the vote that Nermal sucked.

my lexa babby...
everything is going to be ok. and a month is not a lot of time... u´ll se:

when i first thought about moving myself to a rehab center for a month I remember I tought: "a fucking month!!! it will take forever!!!"
and now, after more than two months here (75 days) I can tell ya, is not that hard. Actually, sometimes it seems to be that I came here yesterday...
It´s all about how u deal with it.... and knitting.... well, I´d love to get a new scarf!!!!

i love u, take care
Ian.

The writer of lexablog.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: People are far more inclined to say "someone should do something" than to be or support that someone I will be back.
