Lemonade – I am able to provide for my family while doing interesting work and expect to not commute so much after November. And , I get to stay with my Fun Friend and her daughter while in town.
Lemons – I miss the week with Husband, Oldest Son and Youngest Son
Lemonade – The weekends are so wonderful.
Saturday, we had a late breakfast at our favorite restaurant in local Mexican town. We then went across the street to beach. Husband and I ordered a bucket of cerveza for 80 pesos and the kids played in surf. We supported local economy by purchasing necklaces for boys, earrings for me and a hammock. We then went to local vegetable store to get produce (WARNING: if a dog taking a potty break on the sidewalk in front of your produce store makes you uneasy – do not move to Mexico) We then went home and relaxed before late afternoon Birthday Party (see slightly creepy Piñata below.)
Sunday, we tackled the 6 foot surf at Other American Family’s beach by their home. It was impressive. Oldest Son and I got caught in a bit of a rip tide. Wave #1 took us both down. We looked up and saw Wave #2. Oldest Son screamed (imagine little boy in Home Alone), I grabbed him and boogie board and dove under. We came up and Other American Father whisked Oldest Son away. All was fine and Oldest Son playing in sand within minutes.
I am back in USA for the week …
