Adios. Farewell. Goodbye.

As I said on mi otro blog, Two Pretzels - there will be minimal blogging within the next little while. I am traveling home to see my dog, home and others.

Also, I am going to make a grand attempt of trying not to butcher the English language for the duration of my visit.

Note to self: Do not say, "Hola, Como esta?" to the customs guy in Dallas. That's a start.
House update: They will be painting whilst we are gone. Every room will have a tan color with a brown-ish "wash" over it. Very "Mexico-esque." That way, we may be able to move in when we get back. I think our lease will start July 1. FUN!


One thing I don't understand...

>> Tuesday, June 19, 2007 Mexico's universal acceptance of styrofoam. It's everywhere.
This is not ok.
(I remember being in a MUSICAL in 6th grade that sang of the harmfullness of CFC's and polystyrene. We used Big Mac styrofoam boxes as props. (Remember those?) It was great.)


Boy, this TOLEDO weather looks great.


Some new stuff for the new place

A few of the items I ordered for the new place.


As a non-high-roller...

C. and I were discussing it and both believe that we should sell our Toledo house next spring.
We just don't need it. I'm not sure it's worth it to keep a house that we go back to MAYBE 6 times a year, for a total of 30 days maximum.
It's really quite interesting how distance truly makes our hearts grow less fond. (When it comes to this one topic.)
We've learned that it's an everyday logistical pickle to deal with a home in another country. If it were a condo or something, that would be easier...
Or maybe we'll rent it out. Hmmm....


AMAZING treasure hunting day.

Super fun beach day today.
Today, we walked down to the Cabo Surf hotel, but it was super cool because we got to go through all these fun, rocky areas. Super cool.

We found TONS of "booty". Check it out!

(We're getting into the sea glass finding. However, we do understand that it's just weathered Mexican beer bottle remnants.)


Our "Room"

Soon enough C. and I will be moving out of Mykonos 201 B. Though the view is amazing, the location lovely - we're excited to move on.
C. has aptly named our home, "our room," for obvious reasons...

Things we will miss:

  • The ocean as our backyard
  • The pools
  • That this was our first "home" in Cabo
Things we will not miss:
  1. The ever-present highway noise (semis constantly breaking...)
  2. The ever-present dust from the construction site nextdoor.
  3. The ever-present construction sounds from the construction site next door.
  4. The Homeowners Association which disallows pets and only allows one parking spot. (Hmmmm...?)
  5. The size of our first "home" in Cabo. (We need mas que 750 sq. ft to live in.)
  6. Carrying groceries up to the second floor.
  7. Having new room for guests.
Walk into our place, our "foyer", if you will and you'll see this.
Bathroom on left, bedroom also on left.
(You can see a bit of it. Kitchen and living room to the right.)
Note my great shoes on the shelf and Craig's OSU hat on our lamp. :-)

The kitchen. And our trusty water cooler at right.
(Water only $2.00 a bottle! For that HUGE bottle. Goodbye individual water bottles!)
Also, note my cute Mickey Mouse cookie jar.

Our kitchen. See the toaster oven in the left-hand corner?
Also, do you see the oven or the dishwasher? No?
That's because we don't have them.

Living room. See C.? Laying on the couch?
Watching the love of his life: his T.V.
Note my computer on the floor and my etch-a-sketch on the ottoman.
Two necessities. (Also note, it's Sunday. We can be messy.)

Our view of the 2 pools and the ocean.
Also note three of my seven outside potted plants. :-)


Water Update

The water ended up coming back on yesterday.
All is good.
