Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Staying or Going?

As previously
announced in July,
David's tour of duty in Qatar is up.

So are we staying or are we going? Both. We sorta kinda have a temporary reprieve. Well, I do anyway. It looks like David will be headed to Saudi Arabia mid November for a few months. Me? I'll head to Texas for my usual holiday hiatus. As it stands at this very moment in time, I'll return to Doha after the holidays (wives are not allowed to accompany the hubby's on limited assignments) and hold down Fort Pink. What? In Doha sans David?! So, how do I feel about that? Not sure. It's only temporary. I'll make do. I can eat at restaurants that don't have iced tea? Repeat, only temporary. Those are the thoughts running through my head today. Ask me again tomorrow if you don't like those answers. David will only be an hour's flight away, but we're not sure how all the logistics will work out as far as the possibilities of him coming and going on a whim. On the positive side, we'll be in the same time zone which should make communications a breeze and we can even have dinner together via Skype. Technology. Now, with all this said, my news flash could all change tomorrow or even today when he gets home from work. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

I could just hop in my Jeep and go from A to B in 7 hours, BUT women are not allowed to drive in The Kingdom.

  1. Let's go berka shopping.

  2. Ha, we should have done that along time ago. Just think of all the queues we could have jumped these last four years ;P;P But seriously, I think I'd look stunning in one. LOL.

  3. One of the best things about having to wear an abaya (we were in Al Khobar for 4 years) was being able to go shopping in our pyjamas LOL - that abaya covers a multitude of sins :)
