It's been stuck in my head all morning! "If theres something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?? Ghostbusters!!"

Too many things are happening all at once and I just can't get a hold of time! The new year creeped up without any sign or signal, no decorations, bright lights or fireworks in my neck of the woods.
If it weren't for the bright big full moon that magically appeared on New Years Eve I would have never suspected something strange on the horizon. At exactly 12:00 AM I was woken up by a generic "Happy New Year" text message from a friend. I don't like my sleep to be interrupted and as far as I was concerned the new year was sleeping too. I haven't even contemplated any resolutions, and I don't think I will. In fact, I don't think anyone really follows through. Every day is a new beginning, another chance to make things better.

I'm not superstitious at all, but this particular full moon seems a bit peculiar to me. It's like an overt warning that things are preparing to unfold, good or bad who knows. I'm seriously praying that great and good things happen this year and I am trying extra hard to ignore those itching pessimistic feelings warning me of great world change.

So the Burj Dubai has been renamed, Burj Khalifa after it's saviour...interesting. The fireworks made up for the years of missed fireworks due to living in Salalah . Now that the Burj Khalifa has made its debut, has prophesy been fulfilled?? Do we now believe the hadith?

The weather has declared war on my sinuses. My throat is so scratchy and dry that I sound like a drag Queen when I speak.  I've been reading instead of talking, thus my hubby is pleased :)

Im so glad its Wednesday! I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend somewhere in the desert.

I have drafted 3 posts today and couldn't decide which one I should post first, so I figured it best to simply let you all know that I am still alive, breathing in the dust, and overmedicating myself with benedryl.

The sureal moon accompanied by the new Burj are making me uneasy. I humbly ask "Please God, make this year better than last!"
