Whew. What a whirlwind few weeks. Busy, but so, so good. Being exam time, I tutored more than ever, plus we made time to do several special meet-ups with our closest friends, and I managed to sneak in several nights out with my girlfriends too. During the days that Miss G and I were not busy making memories with friends, we sorted, organized, and cleaned our entire apartment top to bottom. Important stuff made its way into our Canada shipment bins, some items were sold, and tons was given away. In between, we cleaned a disastrous apartment a couple of floors up, moved the majority of our furnishings up, and set everything up for a new family coming to Kuwait. We made scrapbooks for our closest friends, snuck in quick trips to some of our favourite spots around Kuwait, and were totally spoiled by our desert family. On our very last full day in the country, several of our friends met us at the Jumeirah Beach Resort for a day of sunshine and swimming. It was wonderful. Afterwards, I snuck home to tuck Miss G in bed, did a few final jobs, snuck in a shower, and wrote a CBC post before heading out the door to a friend’s place for one last night with my mama friends. We ate sushi, drank wine, gossiped, and said goodbye, and that was that. Another chapter of adventures comes to a close… Goodbye, Kuwait. We’ll miss you.
