That’s my recent excuse for MIBA (missing in blog action). You would think after doing this fifteen times in less than 21 years of marriage, it would get easier. Not.
Even so, it’s said and done and we’re on our way!
Here was our life a week ago, temporarily reduced to boxes on the front porch. The colored tape is my system for which stuff goes in to Mexico first. The U-Haul trailer will be emptied into a storage unit on the border and only what fits into the SUV will go in, namely the boxes marked with green tape (means ‘go’). The ones with yellow tape will ‘wait’ until dear hubby’s second trip to the border from Oaxaca (a scant 1600 miles round trip), and finally the boxes marked with red will ‘stop’ and hang out in Texas until October when we drive there for our annual missionary conference. This red group includes Christmas decorations, sewing machine, craft/painting supplies, tools and a few other items we can survive without for a few more months.
DH returned it and came back with a bigger trailer and voila! everything fit!
The guys hit the road Thursday morning while Katie and I stayed behind to finish cleaning the house before heading to Cleveland to spend a week with my family. We fly out Friday morning, the 11th. Finally, I’ll be back in Mexico after a ridiculously long time away.
(Uh Como se dice…..?)
