Random Ramblings

Only 16 more days to go before we leave, and I am starting to freak out, are we doing the right thing, are we going to miss the states to much? Are we crazy ? Who's idea was this? What were we thinking, were we thinking??? My friend Jim who lives in Mexico, has told us to take a deep breath and say we are going to LOVE Mexico once we get there, see that's the hard part getting there. I know we will have a great adventure, and I am looking forward to it, but it is a little surreal at times. We have our list of things to do before we leave and everyday we cross something off of it, today we went out and did some errands and tomorrow we need to work on the barn, just a few loose ends to take care of. Next Sunday Billy's aunt is having a small going away party for us, which is very nice of her. We also want to get together with our friends one last time, still things to do but it will all get done. Wednesday night we are going to go over the lease with our new tenants, and get that all taken care of. The one thing that we haven't done is sell the truck, we had a guy come out and look at it the other day so maybe he will buy it. I am keeping my fingers crossed. On Sunday the woman who bought our couch came and picked it up which left us with nothing to sit on, just some patio chairs, but the universe was working and our tenant said we could pick up her couch and chair and use it till she moves in, so that is what we did. We have been blessed with how everything is working out for us, and we hope that it continues that way.

We only have a few more days left here and I hope we get to see one more game.

Providence Cheerleaders

My In laws at the beach

Sister in law Deb at the beach

My sister in law flew into town to watch her daughter 's cheer leading competition in Daytona, my mother and law and I went with her, now cheer leading is nothing like it was when I was a cheerleader, there is serious money being spent on this sport !!!! It was fun to watch, I really liked the coed teams.

Now as everyone knows that when you live in Florida and you have out of town guests you have to go to the beach which isn't a problem for us because we happen to love the beach, and as you can see from the photos my in laws still go to the beach with us, which I think is great.


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed your first and probably last cheerleading competition.
    As usual, I had a great time visiting all the hot spots in FLA...Bizarros, Ozzies Capt Hirams and Uncle Billys pool. Thank you two for being such great hosts, with or without furniture you always make me feel at home.'ll all fall into know that. Enjoy your last few weeks in FLA....Deb

  2. Hi Cheryl, I am excited for you guys. You will be fine once you leave. You know the old saying, Out of sight. Out of mind. I am glad you are coming this beautiful time of the year. Your friend, Patricia

  3. Here is a stupid question - why can't you bring your horses? Mexico lets you bring dogs and cats...why not horses.

  4. Hi karenl, I could bring my horses, but it is to long of a trip,my one horse is 20, and it would be very expensive to haul them to Mexico, it was better for them that I found them really good homes here, and no question is stupid, thanks for reading my blog

  5. yeah but J is a young 20..he would have made the trip easily. The question? Where to put him once you got there.. You are making all the right decisions...stop second guessing yourself...or you'll be nuts by the time you cross the border. Deb
