One more time with a little mo' feeling

Since this is my second Christmas in Abu Dhabi can I now call it my annual visit? Tomorrow I leave to visit Chaz in Abu Dhabi for a month. My flight is direct this year from Atlanta to Dubai. As Chaz has now been with DynCorp for over a year, my annual airfare is part of his compensation package. There is a direct flight from Atlanta to Dubai. Last year I flew from Atlanta to Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi to save money as we were footing the bill. Chaz will have a bit more inconvenience as he'll make the one and a half hour drive to Dubai to pick me up. However, he has arranged for one of the drivers for DynCorp to go with him to help navigate the traffic. He'll also be driving at night since my flight arrives at 9:00 pm on Thursday.

Packing this year has been less stressful as I know what to expect from the weather and the local culture. The last few days have been a whirlwind from getting home from a trip to the North Georgia mountains for Thanksgiving just three days ago. The pressure has been tidying up loose ends at my business to put all on hold until my return in January. My part-time help, Geri LaBreck, is fully capable of handling anything that comes up, if only to send them to the home office Customer Service! It's a relief to know she's checking up on things for me.

I have a housesitter again to take care of things around the house and of course, to see that Molly and Sweetie are looked after. I'll miss my animals as much (or more!) than my friends...Next post will be from Abu Dhabi! Here's to safe travelling.

Got your first entry of your annual visit. Turned a little cold here but not much rain, only drizzle. Had a long afternoon and dinner with Teresa and Kay at Becky's and Jennie's. We talked endlessly and got caught up. T&K have a rescued Jack Russell called Cocco, news cars and new motor boat, I guess to celebrate T's faculty promotion. At church today Jeanne Brown sang for the opening period. Talked briefly with Walker they are enduring the bad weather with no reported trouble. He may call this afternoon.
