A lot has happened, as one would expect, and I am completely baffled as to what I should even blog about.
We are in our house, provided by the school, and I am incredibly happy with it.
There are so many little adjustments I have been going through in my marriage. I am happy to be back with him, but each time is a little like starting over. Hopefully this will be for quite some time.
I bought a used washing machine for only 1,000 pesos and it works great. However, I did wash some items by hand before I bought it.
There is an amazing bakery just about two blocks from my house.
There is also a taquito place there with just about every filing imaginable.
There is also a tamale and atole vendor there in the mornings.
I am very obsessed with food right now.
My bathroom stinks because of the no-flushing situation. I need advice on this one from other Mexpats.
I completed my week of orientation–the program is great and really aligns with what I learned at MU.
I have a lovely neighbor who splits taxis with me. I’m actually using her net right now until mine is installed tomorrow.
The floor is always filthy, no matter how much I sweep it. I consider this the major downside of living here.
There was a party for the school and I had a lot of fun. I may actually become more social. If you know me in person, this is kind of crazy.
Today we went to the Central del Abastos and bought a bunch of fruit–some that even Sal had never seen before. The figs are by far my favorite (though they actually came from his farm–free food).
A week ago we went to the farm and I really enjoyed my time there with his mother and grandmother. Sal went back today to get all the things we forgot the last time.
I have pretty much blown through my starting budget getting all the things I need. I get paid tomorrow.
There are about ten different things on my long-term-goals list for the house; yes, I am beyond happy with it, but I always have a project in mind.
Two different dogs like to come into my house when I leave the door open–I have a locked gate–but one has disappeared the past few days. I miss her.
Check out my flickr for photos of my home.
And I will try to blog again soon–once I have an actual post in mind.
