Sorry, I've Been a Little Out of Sorts

Sorry to those of you who are waiting on my Creative Counterpart post. Tuesday was a busier day than normal, with Erica and her adorable little ones coming over for lunch and a chat. She's preparing to leave Doha in a short while and I wanted to take some time to get caught up with her as she'll be leaving while I'm away.

Even though I've just been here 6 and a half months, Erica is just one of several people I've gotten to be friends with who have left already or who are preparing to leave. It's tough being in such a transient place where people leave with little to no warning. Someone who's been here for more than 3 years is considered a real old-timer.

On top of that, Hubby and I haven't been sleeping well lately as the a/c unit in our bedroom hasn't been working. Finally a few days ago we drug the mattress out to the loft, but that brings with it other problems - namely the kids' music and the hall light, which they prefer on. Hopefully they are supposed to be coming tomorrow to replace the unit and then we can all go back to getting a good night's rest. As it is, I feel like I'm walking through my days in a fog and have even fallen asleep several afternoons.

But I promise that I will be back tomorrow, double posting both my Creative Counterpart post as well as Thankful Thursday.

See you then!!!

The longer you take, the better chance I have of catching up!

It is hard to sleep when you are uncomfortable. Hope they get it fixed soon!
