It is getting scary. We are starting to think about leaving, yes you read right, home!!
Today for the first time since November I checked all the bank accounts and Visa bills! We are in great shape. I have been so relaxed that I never even checked, just let the system I had put into motion in October take care of itself. But now I have to arrange a few things for April and start to plan our return to Canada. We never have a return plan as it seems life dictates which direction we will go. We may be going home via San Diego but I have to try and fit Lake Havsu in there somehow. Looks like we will be backtracking about 400 miles. Details, details, details. That is my next task.
Colin meanwhile has started his annual waxing of the RV. We do hire Pablo to wash it and do some things but Colin prefers to wax his RV himself and today is day 2!! So much to do and so little time. I wish it was November and I could start all over. We haven’t spent enough time with friends, either RVers nor our Mazatlan friends. Not enough beach time, not enough city time, just not enough time. The clock keeps ticking. We truly strive to enjoy each day to the fullest and even that particular moment.
Yesterday was massage day, beach day and dog loving day and another great dinner but today brought business to mind, banking, calls to ‘establishments’ and some bureaucratic types which get me stressed plus preparing our deposit for our return here next season. All of these are things I have neglected, not thought about for several months. For those who are retired, going home is simply an extension of their daily vacation, but for us we go home to work!!! On the other hand, that work is what allows us to take all this time off during the winter months. BIG SIGH!!
Enough….I did the basics and within the next week I have 2 more days of work to to but for now….right now….today….time to open the vino
She is much better, fired a doctor yesterday and frankly I don’t blame her. Her appointment was for 3 PM and she was seen at 10:30PM!!! The others in the waiting room told her that this was normal for this Dr.
She is walking with her walker 2 X per day and sounds wonderful on the phone. I use to hear so much tiredness and exhaustion in her voice but she sounds so wonderful now.
But how I know she is almost normal….she scolded me…..I really should be wearing a hat outside, so she says!! Love you Ma!!
