Merry Christmas!!

Dec 25, 2009

It's Christmas morning in Dubai, as I sit in my apartment all alone. My flatmate had a flight this morning and won't be back for a few days... lucky for her, she is headed home to be with her family. She was kind enough to leave a chocolate Santa by my door, which I quickly consumed for breakfast. This isn't my first Christmas away from home. In fact, that occured several years ago when I was only 15 and flew to Texas. In 2007 I spent Christmas on a beach in Sydney, Australia. So today I sit here in Dubai, spending Christmas out of the country and away from my family for the 3rd time. It never really gets easy, but I'm coping quite well today. Last night I was thrilled to recieve a delivery of beautiful roses from Ryan. It really helped to lift my spirits and bring back a bit of the Christmas spirit that I normally possess. It's a bit hard spending our first Christmas together, apart... but we've spent hours talking on the phone and online, so it makes it a lot easier. I've also spoke on the phone with my family, and I have to thank Mom, Dayton, Kaynyn, Carley, Titan, and most especially Ryan for getting together to take a photo for me... it means so much to me!
This afternoon I'm meeting up with a few friends to go to Dubai Mall (The biggest in the world!!) to distract ourselves from homesickness, find a nice restaurant, and have Christmas dinner as a "family".
Merry Christmas to all of my friends, family, and loyal blog followers. I love you all and hope that yo have a safe and happy holiday spent with the people that you love. Eat some turkey for me!!
