It was an overcast day today. That was the forecast all week, so it was not a surprise. We did the last of the shopping, some packing, ate a late lunch and generally took it easy. We laid low. That was where our spirits were as well.
On one hand, it would be nice to be teleported home, today, in no time at all. Instead we spend all of tomorrow getting back. On the other hand, we would like to stay. My husband wondered what would happen if maybe he just stayed on and met us in March in Phoenix? For a brief second, I thought that sounded fantastic. Then the logistics kick in. We are still very tied to our life back home. But what would it take?
That is a good question. One that I am started to get pretty invested in answering. Obviously, this year of 2015, and really until June of 2016 we are committed to our children’s school schedule. But there are schools here in Mexico, there is a robust home schooling network from our district in British Columbia. The house can be rented. These things can be done.
Or do we have margarita mind? It is a common affliction. The image built up in our minds and the reality of living here are sometimes 2 very different things. For now, we are bringing home a few treasures to bring a touch of Mexico into our daily life. Some distance, research and perspective may change the look of things. Or maybe not…
