    Default OT: T minus 1 day and counting

    Well, after 150 straight days of work 12/7 without a break I'm heading to Dubai to meet my daughter to celebrate her birthday. A full week planned:

    Ski Dubai
    Burl Al Arab hotel
    Wild Wadi Waterpark
    Hard Rock Cafe
    Wonderbus tour of the city
    Desert Safari/Dune Bashing
    Cleopatra Spa (for her - not me)

    I haven't seen her for 16 months so I'm really looking forward to it. If you haven't seen these places Google them - they are pretty amazing.

    Enjoy your time- with the hard work and sacrifices you've put in, you deserve it.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    That's great, ABA.

    I hope you two have a great time. I'm sure it'll be nice to see family after putting in so many hours of work and offering what you do for your country.

    Perhaps you guys can indulge in a little beach volleyball? Don't let her beat you too bad.

    I think it's pretty amusing that the Seminole Indians own a restaurant in Dubai, UAE...

    Oh, and do try to enjoy yourself.

    That Ski Dubai thing is pretty impressive. I was watching the Discovery Channel show about them building it. My guess is you probably won't want to leave there after all that time in the desert heat.

    It's probably not worth the struggle, but you are going to at least get to do some really cool stuff you might not have otherwise done.

    It's good to hear that you're headed to a better place to simply relax and enjoy time with your family.
