Time Flies When You Work In The UAE

    As my staycation comes to an end (insert me crying here) I have come to realize that in three short months I will be back home for the summer (doing the Carleton dance).  But before I get to that let me fill you in on what I have been doing these last few days:

     Working out

Got these pants at the Nike outlet store in the Dubai Outlet Mall. Love them! When I have fun workout clothing it makes me want to workout even more. 

The Dubai Outlet Mall is good, but still not as good as the outlet malls in the States and their prices aren't as good as TJ Maxx or Winners either. But hey you gotta work with what you got.

Bought some art at Global Village in Dubai. The two pieces in either end of the black and white piece is from the Africa pavilion. They are from Kenya and I absolutely love them.  They are oil or acryli painted on wood.

    Had a tasty treat at Mug Cafe down the street from where I live. Yes, this tasted as good as it looked! 

     Went back to Saadiyat beach.

All in all I am happy with the way my vacation turned out. It
 of course I am sad to see it end.  But the sooner we get back to work, the sooner summer is here! 

On another note, we are entering Term 3 at work. Only about 7 weeks of teaching and then a few weeks of prep and then finished!!! I am shocked at how fast this year went by. Even went I was in Japan the year did not seem to go by so fast.  I cannot believe that I am almost done my first year living in the UAE. C-R-A-Z-Y!

I am going to buy my ticket home with my next pay check, in two weeks I am going to go home through Italy and spend a week there. I have always wanted to visit the Amalfi Coast and the fact that I am going to make that dream a reality is still jaw dropping.

Welcome all new readers. Thank you to those of you who have sent me emails and left comments. I truly appreciate all the love I have received on this blog. Hopefully, I will continue to entertain you with my antics.

We are heading to Dubai this weekend for the 'last lap' as Trinis say before we head back to work on Sunday.

Turn up!
