Expat Life in Dubai

In sickness and in health and some other things in between.

March 31, 2013

I’ve been sick for the past 5 days now. It started with a feverish feeling on Wednesday afternoon and then it continued on until today. Thankfully though the fever is gone and I am now nursing a dry cough and colds. One good thing about it though, my voice sounds sexy.

The weather is changing in Dubai and let’s just say that it can’t make up its mind. It may be humid today and then cold the next day. The cold and the heat both wants to take over Dubai. I just hope the heat will give up and let the cold stay for forever longer. I am still going to work since I have a lot of things to do and I won’t be able to rest anyway at home with those things in my head. I just hope I’ll get better and I mean really fit and healthy come next week when my travel starts. The destination of which is still yet to be disclosed but last time I checked, it was snowing in that part of the world. BRRRRRRR. I am not a big fan of cold weather (specially snow) when traveling because it means that I will have to take thick clothes with me and a bigger suitcase. I don’t like checking in a luggage, I’ve mastered The Art of Packing so that all my clothes will fit in my carry-on bag but with two weeks worth of winter clothes – I don’t think anyone can ever fit those in my carry-on bag. Not even a skilled tetris game player.

So now, all I really wish is for someone to drain all the mucus inside my nose and dump it to someone else because I don’t really need this now. Specially now.

    As always, a very entertaining post πŸ™‚ I have also been feeling sick for the past couple of days, and it got worse because I wasn’t getting any rest. I had to attend all those events in the weekend so I could write about them! I just went to the doctor today, and will have a follow-up next week. I guess we have both been hit with the same symptoms. I’m really exhausted, and like you, I can’t just stop and not do anything. I also have a lot of things to do, believe it or not!
    I really liked this line: I don’t think anyone can ever fit those in my carry-on bag. Not even a skilled tetris game player.

    I hope we both get well soon. Especially you, since you are traveling.
    Take care Noemi X
