So it’s chrsitmas eve and things so far have been going very well. Although we are living in Qatar, a conservative Muslim country, I can still feel Christmas.

My colleagues at work just got me a gift! Swiss choclates, very nice of them really … considering the fact that I am the only Christian in the office. Very considerate and sweet. I was also paid today, which is really great!

Jeff and I are planning to go Christmas shopping after work and then head out to a nice dinner at the Marriot hotel. I’m excited!

Speaking of gifts, my stateside relations sent money, Larry and LeDhu and Aunt K wired us some money yesterday as a Christmas gift. That was very sweet and thoughtful.

My shift ends in a hour and I’m planning to head directly from work to the nearest ATM machine 😉
