The Long Journey

Okay so we are still alive everyone.  Don't worry.  I find I get a little (ok, a lot) off on my routines when we travel.  And this trip only made that worse.  We missed our connection in Ft. Lauderdale from Guatemala City and had to stay the night in Florida.  Then catch a flight from Florida to Detroit and Detroit to Indy the next day. It was a long few days, especially after the 4 hour drive to Antigua the day before that.  BUT, we are here!

Unfortunately what I thought was jetlag is a virus Liliana and I seem to have picked up on our travels.  Neither one of us is feeling well at all which is another excuse for not checking in.  I've had a toddler attached to my boob 24 hours a day it feels like ;)  She's finally sleeping by herself in the hammock at this moment in the middle of the night so I can do a quick update.

My parents have sold the house we are in and we will all be moving out of here in a month.  So it's been a little crazy because they don't have a new house yet.  It's definitely going to be an interesting few months here.

Liliana started getting homesick today, asking for Eduardo a lot.  I'm so mad that we couldn't afford a webcam for the computer in ES, so we can't Skype with papito!  Once I start making some money, I hope to send one down there so Liliana can see her papi.  But there are a lot of things that have to happen before I start working.  It's all a mess.

Anyway, I will be writing about all our trials and tribulations of life without my husband in the States and will still be writing about ES as well.  I have a lot in my head , so watch out!!

Glad you made it safe. Hope you girls feel better soon. We seem to be going through the same things right now. I am also here in the states helping my mom move, this week actually and I have been away from Javi for a month now. Take care

How long will you be away from Javi?? Isn't it so hard? I'm doing better than I thought I would, but it's the little things that get me. I find I break down and cry really easy, but the rest of the time I'm pretty good. I hope we can all be reunited soon!
