Here's an uber fast update while we wait for the check at breakfast:
*Dave & Em are fully recovered from Dengue. Yeah. (And I am becoming quite skilled at mosquito hunting.)
*The kids are doing great in school...learning all the bad words Senora Hernandez never taught me in high school. Who knew.
*Dave is surfing his heart out whenever possible and his abs are delicious proof of his new favorite sport.
*Our casita (did I tell you we were building a little casita on our lot?) is coming along nicely. Lots of decisions to be made. Lots of trips to the Home Depot in Puerto Vallarta. (Apparently, there's no escaping the H.D. no matter where you live.)
*Me -- I'm trying to find my groove. Sometimes I feel like my entire existence is devoted to making sure everyone else is taken care of. And, currently, everyone is fairing rather well, and I'm feeling rather...well...like I lost my compass. Ya know? (And I'm embarrassed to admit that having no internet makes me cranky.) I think I need some Mama time. Maybe I'll try yogalates (but I'm scared). Retail therapy is always helpful...and more coffee (yeah, yeah yogalates is a far healthier choice...whatever.)
Anyway, thanks for checking in and Feliz Navidad!!
I'll leave you with this image that we used for our Christmas card this year. Click to make bigger -- check out Soli's face.
And, since some of you have already seen that one and I still have a good signal, here's a few more...
Cocos helados by the river.
The river that's also a road...
The view of Monkey Mountain at sunset from the master of the casita.
