Today's my Friday!
Since my last post, my attitude has definitely become more upbeat and positive!
Honestly, work is work is work. Wherever we are in the world, we have immature bosses, hectic schedules, impossible timelines, annoying technical difficulties, crappy co-workers, and everything else that will test our resolve.
I let all of these things bother me. I forgot that I cannot control the things that are out of my control, I can only control my attitude towards them. And thanks to YOU and all of your awesome comments, encouragement and advice, plus finally getting in touch with family and friends again back home (honestly, internet, even if it's slow as dirt, is a God-send), I can say that these last few days have been much better.
I really think I'm going to like it here, as long as I continue to keep a positive attitude and go with the flow.
Yesterday, we ventured up to Camp Buehring to get re-certified in First Aid, CPR and AED.
I think the First Aid section was my favorite.
We had a lot of fun acting wounded and making splints.
Enjoyed lunch at the DFAC (but I think our Zone 6 DFAC here on Arifjan is better ;) I try to keep it as fresh and as colorful as possible!
After an hour and a half drive back down to Kuwait City, we scooped up my roomie and had dinner at a sweet little Thai restaurant right by our house.
I love Thai Food, and the food here was tasty! Service was also excellent.
I ordered the Spciy Papaya Salad (below) and Grilled Beef Meatballs. That salad was SPIIIICY!
And you know me, I'm always happy when I can do my CrossFit thing ...
I'm hoping to have a little fun on my day off tomorrow and venture out into the city. :)
On a side note, a friend gave me a bottle of MiO FIT to try, and I love it! It's so hot out here, and drinking plain water gets REALLY old. I was having a problem staying hydrated, but with MiO, I actually want to drink water now. :)
1. How do you stay hydrated? Do you drink plain water or something else?
2. Coffee or tea in the morning?
3. Are you First Aid CPR/AED certified?
