Hasta La Vista Baby

Well there it sits, ready to go, well except for us, the dogs, dog food, and our overnight bag.

The Tarus brought us down 10 years ago, and will get us to our new destination.

It's been a stressful week, trying to get all the last minute stuff, that you can't do till the last minute, done.

Got the car packed yesterday, thank you Mimi, and realized this morning we didn't leave space for the dog food. Ah well, where there's a will there's a way.

Had a visit with friends yesterday and discovered that one of them had flown in the day before with our new tenants, she gave a thumbs up so that's a relief.

Seeing friends has been the hardest, but we're not saying good bye, just saying see you later.

I intend to post along the way, intend being the action verb, that may or may not actually occur. But we will for sure make facebook posts about where we are – just to narrow down the search area as we were advised to do. Reassuring!

Today is cleaning out the fridge, washing the sheets and towels, and one or two last minute visits, as well as Tom's hernia surgery follow up visit this evening, then in the morning, just sweep up as we walk out the door.

Oh my!


Hasta Pronto Amigos!


About Debi in Merida

I moved from Colorado Springs, Colorado USA to Merida, Yucatan, MX in January 2006. I love to read, garden, travel, and hang out with friends. Then in 2016 I moved to Richmond, Virginia, USA. Culture shock continues.

  2. May your journey to your new home be uneventful and as comfortable as possible, for humans and four-legged alike. Todo lo mejor! Lennie

    I haven’t written many comments on your blog, Debi, but I wish you God speed and happiness wherever you go in life. You are one strong woman! Hasta luego.

    Oh I so relate to the emotions of such a move. I’m heading the opposite way however – to Mexico. Saying goodbye to many places and people here in the U.S . that have been good to me is so poignant. It seems I am weepy at every turn, even knowing the joy that awaits. A friend passed this to me, and it helps me to remember the truth of it.

    All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;
    for what we leave behind us is part of ourselves;
    we must die to one life before we can enter another.
    ~Anatole France

    I wish you safe travels and happy trails always.

  5. Bon voyage. Of course, I think you both are totally out of your minds.

    You have been such pioneers for expats in Merida. Here’s to your adventures in Virginia. Friendships deepen even when there is “distance”. You are surrounded by the love of so many friends. Hasta la vista!

  7. John Hurd says:

    Safe voyage! I’m sure well see you again.

  8. Geraldine Brown says:

    I am sorry to see you leave,and just wish you the best happiness and adventure in Richmond. A door closes, a window opens. Hugs and love, Geraldine

  9. Kevin Donegan says:

    Safe travels. If you can, just post a simple message daily on your journey. You two have so many people who know and love you that we’ll be concerned if nothing is heard for days.

    If you’re carrying a lot of dog food, you may be told to surrender it at the border. People donate their kibble to our rescue group all the time because they’re only allowed enough food for the road.

  11. Wow, life as we know it here in Merida has just changed. I wish you the best of luck, and safe travels.
