yes, I've been here for more than a month! It's crazy huh? Tonight as I was sitting in the hot tub of my posh hotel, I wondered what the next few months will be like. If and when I go to Qatar, will I be staying in another hotel? A nice apartment? A crappy apartment? Roommates? Or will I get an apartment here before I leave? Will Jamie and I be roomies? Will I have to wait to buy a car? And if I wait too long, should I just lease instead of buy?
So many questions popping around in my head, but even though there are still so many things up the air, I still have accomplished a lot. I feel comfortable going out and about. I have found food places that I like, though I am getting a little tired of them. And honestly, I am liking the rhythm at work. It is completely insanity at times, yes, but I like that! I love organizing and multitasking and getting things DONE.
I do want VEGETABLES!!! They must be around here somewhere... I am tired of fruits and carbs. There are a lot of delicious grilled vegetable cold sandwiches, but I want some zucchini, peppers, carrots, anything! They don't sell too many at the grocery stores near the hotel and i'm a little worried to buy them there anyway, but if I go to the mall tomorrow (for the errands that I put off today), I can buy a bunch I think. I have my lunch boxes and oil and vinegar ready for some veggies salads! :)
I think I really just want to cook.
Ok, quest for you: I've been living in a hotel for 32 days with nothing but a kettle to boil water and a refrigerator that is only slightly cold. I need more variety than the sandwiches, fruit, granola, noodles and takeout that i've been living on. Suggestions?? Let's hear it!
