The Hammock, The Holiday & 1st Visitors

The Hammock
We have had one of those manana experiences with our Hammock. We purchased on beach a few weeks ago. Our landlord asked us to work with the complex maintenance to have it hung. I will spare you the many iterative details but there were various delays for various reasons.

However, yesterday was The Day - our Hammock is hung. Life is so definitely good.

The Holiday and 1st Visitors
Next week is Thanksgiving for the USA community. Our USA neighbors are spending the week with us. Neighbor Mommy, Daughter Age 8 and Daughter Age 6 flew to Mexico with me on Thursday. Neighbor Daddy arrives this afternoon. We are all very excited to have our friends visiting! Kids are playing Twister right this moment - too funny.

I have been commuting weekly since August. It felt odd and wonderful to write 12 days on my FMT! I also start a one week to USA schedule in December. Mucho Thankfulness!

Great hammock shot. It says a lot. Have a great Thanksgiving week with your friends. I hope to be able to do the same thing next year.

Hi American Mommy,

We are heading for Colima for Thanksgiving. All our US based clients will be "closed" for the holiday so we decided to take a holiday ourselves. Coming from Colorado, this hardly feels like Thanksgiving week, with temps in the 80s and lots of warm sun.

S - I love that shot up. There is just something special about a hammock.

VM - Yes, it feels odd espcially with the kids in school.
