Can you believe it’s been an entire year since I left Mexico?
Through a weird quirk of my flight times, I departed Zihuatanejo on February 23rd and arrived in Chicago February 24th. I’m big on numbers and dates (as I believe I’ve mentioned before) so having a clean divide between the two actions is significant to me. I don’t know why it feels important to be able to stay I officially started my new life on a certain day, but it does.
If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know I’ve highlighted random behaviors that I continue to do, despite them no longer being necessary.
I have to say, I still spit in the shower, I still flinch when I open cupboards, and don’t even get me started on opening the roll of tin foil. I can’t tell you how many times I found cockroaches inside there. But on the positive side, I do go out by myself at night, I no longer flinch when I hear a loud noise, and Owen absolutely LOVES the cold weather. (So do I…)
I keep waiting to be struck with a desire to be back where it’s warm, but I can’t get enough of the cold and snow. Even when everyone else is complaining that they’re ready for spring, my first thought is why?
I’ve made a few physical changes in the past year as well, most notably shorter hair and new glasses. Yay!
Now, stay tuned because Friday I’ll announce the contest and PRIZES! There will be two ways to win so be sure to stop by.
