We’re Moving Abroad- to DOHA! and what happened in the previous two weeks.

SURPRISE! We’re moving to Doha.

In less than a month, I am going to bid a permanent goodbye to the home I have known since 1990. The news hasn’t  sunk in yet. Most probably because my hormones are a whack at the moment and I am more sensitive to insignificant things rather than to the ones that matter. But the move has been in the works since December and was just finalized a few weeks ago. Our visas have been cancelled and we are now in Dubai under the one month grace period that goes with every cancellation.

There are so many things to do. I did some research on moving from Dubai to Doha. There isn’t much out there on the net but we are thankful that the chubby hubby’s new company provided some comprehensive information on the things we need to do. I am actually looking for a reliable cargo service that will bring a few boxes from here to Doha. I am definitely bringing my sewing machine and my silhouette. And my pens and my crafting supplies. Definitely.

I was in Doha in 2007 (or was it 2006?) and I fell in love with the fact that it is so much like Dubai in the 90s. Life is so much simpler. It is now more than 5 years since and I never thought we’d actually be moving there. I feel like I am going to give my kids the same atmosphere I grew up with…

The previous two weeks have been really busy. My childhood bestfriend from Florida came here for a week to visit, did two small concerts and launched her new album. So we were really busy, making up for lost time and preparing. She’s a gospel singer who trained in Berklee and is now a music therapist at Florida Hospital.

The concert was a success. I did some vocal backup for two of her songs during the concert. It felt wonderful to sing with her just like old times… just like when we were kids… :)

  1. So sad to hear that you’re moving but also really excited about the new life that awaits you! Luckily, Doha isn’t that far away, -I’ll definitely come over and say hi, and hi and hi :)

  2. Moving can be a stressful event and please let me know if I could help in any way. Like MItzie said, it’s just next door, so we’ll definitely see each other soon enough :) Take care meanwhile!

  3. None of moving is easy. Last week I also moved back from Dubai to my country for an indefinite period and it was far from easy.
    I hope you get settled there quickly and wish you all the best! :)

Show me some love!!!
