Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be moving to a foreign country to live, let alone a country in the Middle East. Over the 2009 Christmas and New Year’s holidays, my husband Roger and I discussed what we wanted the next part of our life to be like. He thought that before retiring, he would like to do one more airport project but only if he could find something very interesting. I half-jokingly agreed that would be fine but could he try for an exotic location? As usual, Roger came through and soon we were headed to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. This blog is a recap of our "leap-of- faith" wanderings around the Middle East and beyond. We joyfully share these expat experiences.

Blogging Boomers Happy Mother's Day

What do you think every mother wants? The Accidental Locavore has the privilege of hosting this week’s Blogging Boomer’s Carnival and mothers seem to be on a lot of peoples minds.

And we’d like to welcome Rita Robison, the newest edition to the carnival! Be sure to check out her blog: The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide. 

With Mother’s Day in the USA coming up this Sunday, Arabian Tales’ Katie Foster is digressing from her regular Arabian travel stories and imparting just a little grandmotherly advice for teenagers. 14 Reasons Why Mom Is Always Right! Do you think Mom is always right?

SoBabyBoomer asks,What does every working mom want?” A new survey reveals that working mothers care more about having flexible hours than any other benefit an employer can offer. Working mothers biggest challenge is: Work/Life Balance.

What’s your biggest challenge? The Midlife Crisis Queen is constantly amazed at how the choices she makes often turn into trends much later. Here’s a few examples of how she has been ahead of the curve in terms of American trends! 

Laura Lee would also like to add a bit of historical perspective on Mother’s Day 2012. 

This week at The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, focuses on Mother’s Day topics. You can find information on American mothers, how to check out a company before buying that important gift for mom, and last-minute suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts. You can also find tips for stressed out moms. 

Women are more likely than the general public to cite family health and family responsibilities as sources of stress, according to a study by the American Psychological Association. Tom Sightings shares A Little Health Scare he had last week and how it got him to thinking about the important things in life. What’s important to you?

 Hope you enjoy this week’s carnival. Please be sure to comment and let us know what you’re liking!
