Wrapping Up

It is hard to believe that we have been here 17 days. So much has happened that it seems like much longer than 17 days. It has been wonderful. A vacation in Houston, a city that I know and love. Now it is time to head for home.

It seems strange to be headed "home" after the holidays because for years we would take off a few days after Christmas for Cancun or San Miguel or somewhere in Mexico for a vacation. Over the last 20 years we have probably seen the New Year in more often in Mexico than we have in the USA. It seems like for three or four years our Anniversary dinner on December 28th was in Saltillo at a lovely restaurant as we overnighted on the drive to San Miguel.

We spent yesterday getting organized. Mostly our suitcases are packed. The stuff we bought to take back is in large plastic tubs. Now we just have to figure out a way to get it all in the car. It is always a little tense as we figure out how to get everything loaded.

When we were headed to Mexico for a vacation I looked forward to the drive. It was an adventure. But now we are headed home. I just want to be there.

Many of us have flip flopped making our two week vacation destinations our 50 week homes and vacationing where we used to live ;-) Isn't life grand!

I wish I could go with you. San Miguelito... Good luck in Mexico, y no olviden lo del permiso del carro en frontera.
