Chatting about letting his hair down

My guy has made it safely to Dubai. We have a nine-hour time difference, which makes scheduling time to chat a challenge at times.

Saturday worked out okay. I had to go into work. It was my second Saturday at the office. I have one more to go. I am hoping that it will be the last one for a while.

I pinged by guy at around 14:30 my time. I asked him why he was still awake. He had just had dinner and got back to his hotel. He wanted to talk with me, so we did.

He was a bit jetlagged and tired, which was perfectly understandable. We teased each other and recalled some wonderful times that we have had together.

My guy has been shaving his head for a while. He has finally decided to grow his hair back a bit. It is winter and he wants to have a warmer head, which makes sense.

I told him that I couldn't wait to run my fingers through his hair and spend time braiding each other's hair. He laughed.

He had forgotten that I was at work on Saturday for a bit. I am glad that I got to hear his voice. It certainly made a Saturday workday more bearable.

He told me that I am a strong person, and that my cough and congestion would fade. He knows that I rarely get sick.

It always lifts my spirits talking to him. For a few days now, my left ear has been clogged due to being so congested. I learned that if you stick your index finger in your ear and move it upwards, it creates a vacuum that helps drain the fluid and relieve the pressure. Sure enough, it has worked nicely for me. My hearing is definitely improved.

I am taking mucus and phlegm cold medication, DayQuil and NyQuil, and an antihistamine. They say that you shouldn't be mixing medication as I have been doing, but the combination works wonders for me right now. I don't take them all at once!

My guy and I are planning on chatting again tomorrow. In Dubai, his workweek starts on a Sunday. We both felt a bit comforted knowing that we are both partially working this weekend.


  1. Happy you and your guy get to chat CB...with the 9 hour difference, that's not easy to do! Please watch what you are doing in mixing those meds. If you still have a sore throat and/or cough, you can take teaspoon raw honey. Sending lots of healing energy your way. Take care of yourself.

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. I am definitely doing much better. I have a mild, occasional cough now and again, but the two days of rest away from work helped out a ton!

      Thanks for the raw honey tip. I have been using a ton of honey lately. I think that your positive energy help me out, too. =)

  2. My, your guy sure does see the world. but work is still work, wherever you are. And you can still look at each other. In a way it makes everything new and intense again when he comes back to you, girl with the naughty name. And you will work both on more memories. Hairy ones.

    Take care of yourself snd of your health for me please,

    1. So true, Han! I asked him whether I could run my fingers through his hair now. It isn't too long, but I am sure that we will conjure up fond hair memories soon. =)
