Well here we are in a lovely condo on the beach in RB. We had some problems with the first rental and had to change mid week but now we are happily situated. This condo is a 2 bedroom , 2 bath Mexican tile decor. It will be a good place for us for the 2 months that we are planning our European adventures. But alas, today as I was trying to clean up some photos to put up here my adobe photo shop elements program crashed. . I will be purchasing a new photo shop elements program tomorrow to let me post pictures again.
It was really a good idea to do this 2 month rehearsal trip to Mexico. I am surprised at how emotional and difficult it is to leave son, family, friends and dogs. It is easier if I tell myself that we will be back for a few days in a month and back for a week before we leave for Europe in April. I feel a push – pull the entire time I am preparing; on one hand I am excited to go off for new adventures, but on the other hand I am sad to leave. Such is life. My sweet doggies; Daisy who is 17 is going to be staying with my wonderful sister Sandi since she needs special care, Mac and Lady will be staying at home with Brian.
OMG we are really going. We rented a condo on the beach in RB and we are packing for 2 months of preparation for the trip to Europe. Dave’s last day at work was Friday and it is so strange.
We are planning to spend two months in Rosarito beach in Mexico to exercise, and plan our vagabonding trip to Europe. We made a couple of trips down to Rosarito this year to check out some different condo developments. We have found the development we want to stay in because it has a long sandy beach in front that we can walk on everyday. Now we are trying to nail down the particulars ( which condo, which floor, etc). These 2 months will also be a rehearsal to give our son, dogs and new roommate time to gel and get use to us being gone.
I am excited , I love the beach and the ocean. The condo has two bedrooms so perhaps some family and friends will come down to visit us. It is a very quiet and private place for us to plan the trip and to ease into spending 100% of our time together.
Today was my last day seeing patients at my office. It was sad to say goodbye to some important people that have allowed me to work with them on their road to resolve problems and learn better tools to live more successfully. I may be back in my office part time when we return from Europe but there is no certainty about that. I am starting a new chapter in my life and I am excited and a little afraid but that is probably normal.
Dave is still working for a couple more weeks. I am going through the house and will continue to give things away in order to simplify our home life . We will be going to Mexico to live for a couple of months on the beach in order to plan out the European journey .. We plan to walk on the beach twice a day, lift weights and get in good shape to walk all over Italy when we go in April.
I will be writing and posting photos in this blog for family and friends to follow this adventure with us. Happy New Year to one and all
