February 12th, I boarded my last flight to Doha. It was a bittersweet moment yet, I was ready to go so I could wrap things up. With me is my niece, Ravyn. Ravyn’s been saving to come and visit me since I moved overseas and I’m excited that she’s finally getting the opportunity for this international trip. We spent four hours flying to Chicago, in which I slept the entire time; then an 8 hour layover and a 12 hour flight to Doha. It was an uneventful flight and that’s always a good thing. Read more
I self diagnosed myself this week with the flu. Having a fever while in the desert is just plain stupid! The fever part lasted two consecutive nights and really socked it to me. I have gracefully recovered and am at about 85%.
Since it was such a rough week, I ended it with a couple of spa treatments. I thought having a hot stone massage would do my body good and adding a facial would give me the ultimate relaxation. I arrived to my normal spot and was greeted by Nur, my wonderful therapist. She said to me, “Your face looks oilier than normal.” I nodded because I’d noticed too. Then she said, “You look so tired.” I laughed and responded “I’m oily and tired.” She laughed too and said “That’s exactly why you’re here!” I laid down on the bed of smooth hot rocks and melted away. Nur was right, I was there because I was oily and tired and needed every bit of the 3 hours at the spa. Read more
Since coming back from #Budapest, Jaden & I haven’t done much. He’s been working on putting a video together from photos and clips we took in #Budapest. Once he’s done, I’ll put it on the blog.
We’ve been to a couple of #Doha malls: Landmark and Ezdan. We had lunch at La Spiga’s in the W Hotel. It was my first experience there and I’ll tell you, their express lunch rivals the Market’s (also in the W) express lunch. Man, it was great! Jaden’s been trying to get me to take him back but I won’t. I think I’ll Read more
It’s been an exhausting week. With 2 to 3 hours of sleep here and there, daily naps, and some sleep assistance, I’m still not over the jet lag and Jaden isn’t either. However, we’ve pressed through in order for him to see and do things and today was the first day he didn’t complain about going somewhere. His not complaining could have been delirium though because he stayed up all night…and all day.
Wow! It’s been an incredible couple of weeks. After wrapping things up in California, my son met me at LAX and we began our journey back to Doha. We arrived to LAX with several hours to go before our flight left so I introduced Jaden to airport lounges. We had a great time hanging out in the KLM Lounge with food and drinks. He thought it was Read more
