Hi everybody! It is Tuesday morning here.
I hope you and your loved ones are happy and healthy in the last week of 2016. I can't wait to hear all the holiday stories.
Needless to say, I made it! My flight could not have been better and it feels so good to be with DH again. We are still staying in the hotel until our things can be delivered. They have been in the port for about a week so it should be any day now. We bought a bed frame and mattress for the guest room from ikea last night and it will be delivered on the 28th so, worst case scenario, we will move into our apartment then. Speaking of the apartment, DH did a fantastic job. I am so impressed. 3 bedrooms, an office, floor to ceiling windows, allllllll the closets. Now just to get furniture. :P
I haven't really done too much since I have been here. We have dinner with some of DH's coworkers who are staying at the same hotel almost every night. They are wonderful and hilarious, a Frenchman and an Aussie. My most exciting day (and definitely a top 10 day of my life) was spent with a friend of the Frenchman who was visiting. She and I toured the Emirates Palace and had a cappuccino with gold flakes. Then we walked to a beach on the corniche, it was lovely but we decided to go jet skiing so we went back to the hotel to get passes to the beach next to the hotel. It was my first time jet skiing and it was SO MUCH FUN! Seriously one of my favorite activities.
I am meeting the landlords today to do our walk through, hopefully our stuff is released soon because DH invited everyone over for a NYE party! Lol.
eta: customs was way easier/ less stressful than going through Canada.
