I don't know if I can even begin to explain things but I'll try. I have a passport, you need a passport to be here (Saudi Arabia, YES, I'M AMERICAN) In order to leave this country you must have a visa to either leave permanently or leave and come back. I have to have what is called an exit/re-entry visa so I can leave Saudi and come back in 5 months. This procedure usually takes a week or less sometimes. You CAN get an emergency visa in 24 hours. Well my husband took my passport to the company office 2 weeks ago to get a visa in my passport so I can leave Sunday night/Monday morning. It is Friday night and I don't have my passport. This has nothing to do with the American government or the American Consulate/Embassy, the Saudi immigration office is the one who issues the visas. Our weekends are Thrusday and Friday so maybe there is a very slim hope it will come but the office said they have don't know when it will be back. The airline am flying has 2 flights a week out of here back to the USA, 2:10AM Monday & Thursday mornings. I am on the MOnday flight, Thursdays flight is overbooked and there is no way I'd get on that flight. I am just so upset, hurt, heartbroken. I want to go HOME. I have a new car waiting to be signed for and picked up, I have kids to hug and kiss, I have dr.s appointments, I have friends to meet, I have mail waiting that will now be backed up. I'm just devistated.
ON top of that, DH might have to go on a business trip. I didn't do grocery shopping because I thought I was leaving and I've used up stuff. It just sucks right now.
So I did my exercises this evening. 45 minutes of Walk Away The Pounds with extra intensity, the bootcamp video work out for today, another booty ball workout, leg lifts, up and down stairs.
I just want to scream, cry and beat on somebody.
