Outside my window.. 81 degrees and hardly a cloud in the sky! Can’t wait for my lunch hour so I can get outdoors.

Can't figure out why this pic is so dark... must have had the camera on the wrong setting. Oops!

Today I feel.. sleepy! I woke up at 4 am with allergies and haven’t been asleep since.
I am thankful.. for my giant jar of peanut butter from Sam’s Club.
Tomorrow I am going.. to work, then the gym, then to buy paint, then Jorge’s soccer game, then nowhere!
I am wearing.. my work uniform.
I wish.. I could see my family more often.
This weekend.. Jorge and I are FINALLY painting the living room! Hurrah!
I am reading..

Thank you for shipping to Mexico, Amazon.com!!!

I am working on.. getting the house looking decent.
Yesterday I.. went to Muellecito for dinner with my friend Emma.
I am hoping.. to have enough energy for Zumba class tonight.
I am hearing.. office chit chat.
I bet you didn’t know.. I can’t think of anything!!!

Have a nice Thursday!

I’m In USA Today!!

28 Mar

Thanks to everyone for all the great comments over the weekend. After a few days, I’m feeling much calmer about everything 🙂 Let’s hope the situations blow over.

On to more important things…

A few days ago, I was quoted in USAToday!! (My friend Kelly from CancunCanuck.com was quoted as well… she’s much more articulate than I am!) Kitty Bean Yancey wrote a great article on whether or not Cancun is a safe tourist destination.

As usual, reading the comments makes me a little angry. Then again, the quotes from people who have actually BEEN to Mexico/Cancun are quite positive… even if many choose to believe the news more than the millions of people with first-hand experience.

But whatever, right? Tourism hasn’t gone down in Cancun, despite all the bad press, because most American international travelers know what’s up 🙂
