Why yes, my celiac disease is acting up and it’s annoying the crap out of me. Okay, so celiac is not actively killing me. This autoimmune disease is just killing my motivation because I have no energy.
What is it really like to travel with kids? Imagine a vacation spent at the hotel pool and the rest of the time is spent in search of food. I think all-inclusive for a family vacation is a great option! And preferably, on the beach.
I’m keeping this in mind as I plan our next vacation. We are planning on going to a destination we haven’t been. Knowing nothing about it does make me long for the comfort and security of an all-inclusive. However, it’s expensive and I’ve waited a little too long to book in the area we are planning to visit this summer. My preferred all-inclusive resorts are full! I’m also perusing Airbnb.
One of the things I wanted to do before leaving the Columbus, Ohio area was to visit COSI (Center of Science and Industry). I’d heard great things about the COSI Kidspace. Would you believe I got my act together about a month before we moved? I was SO proud of myself. Until the parking lot exit incident.
Other than the parking lot issue, I liked the museum. As always, the big question: Did the kids like it?
It was June. It was November. Or January. It was anytime a coworker vacationed anywhere. Envy. And a little bit of jealousy that I could tamper down with some deep breathing. Scotland, Tennessee, a Caribbean cruise, anywhere, but especially the exotic. Why didn’t I ever make plans to travel? These are my regrets.
“It’s nice to meet you! You’re going to homeschool, right?” She said. “You shouldn’t homeschool. You should send your kids to school here in Mexico.”
I was taken aback. However, it ended up being the norm here. I would meet an expat and they would immediately tell me to not homeschool my children in Mexico. The two biggest (and only) reasons given?
Hola! Today we went to the market! Is there an official name to this market? I don’t know. I do know that Sunday is the busiest day to go. However, I am pleasantly surprised – the crowds are light today.
Today’s the day! My dogs will finish up their 3 day journey from Ohio into Central Mexico today! That’s right, they went on a dog road trip!
I really don’t feel like writing much. I’m also not convinced that I’ll end up posting this. If you’re reading it, then clearly I did. We are struggling a bit with adjusting to our new life. There are many great things about moving to a new place. There are also some downsides. Some I did expect and others that blindsided me.
It’s way too early for this. Except, there’s no good time to meet your first scorpion, is there?
In case it isn’t obvious, the answer is no. Emphatically.
Yep. Murphy of Murphy’s Law deserves a punch in the face.
