It’s been a long time.
And I miss you guys like I miss….the little chocolate cakes with the red cherries I used to eat at Modern Bakery in Karama. (Dubai)
Work is crazy these days. I am actually earning my dollar for a change.
Dracs got a very pretty pink slip at work. Pretty because he gets a package so big, it allows him to sit on his taut behind and do nothing for a year. However he plans on moving to Dubai in a few months. Of all the bars in all the world…….
It feels like the end of an era. The Dracs and Cranky era. Maybe now I’ll finally be able to get on with life.
The house is fabulous. I’ve discovered a few things about myself.
~I love living alone.
~I love the fact that I control where things are….I guess it does confirm that I am a control freak.
~I’m proud of myself.
~I hate sleeping with even a bit of light on my face. So I am the proud owner of new black leather curtains in my bedroom. My brother calls me Dracula, but really facing a main road where buses are 24 hours, and traffic is heavy, is quite disturbing.
~I love my Jacuzzi tub. How did I live all these years without a Jacuzzi tub??
~I love that I can ignore the dishes for a day or watch Grey’s Anatomy DVDs if I am too tired.
~I am sort of hiding out. Everyone (including myself) thought I would go crazy and have parties every weekend, but as it turns out, I haven’t. I am now free to be the recluse that I am. I actually enjoy the quietness.
~The only downside is when I have to open things. Like bottles or cans. I almost didn’t have a jam sandwich this morning….
~Or zipping myself up in the morning in particular dresses or putting on cumbersome jewelry, twice this week I had to have the EA zip me up first thing in the morning….
~Today I am making my first meal. Pork chops, veggies and potatoes…plus a side of garlic bread….ummm
~I’m procrastinating on having a house warming thing….I think I have too many friends, the logistics seem over whelming
~I have four days vacation in October and I’m not sure what to do….
~I was a little worried that I would turn out to be a bit neurotic type person, who alphabeticizes their DVDs and cleans everything meticulously…I am happy to report that I am very laid back…
That’s it for now….site meter says I’m back down to a mere 34 visits….HMPH…
