This is our story of immigration struggles and moving to Mexico so our family can be together. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!

Neighborhood Politics

Oh how things work here in Mexico......There is a store literally across the street from Cesar's house. This is where we get most anything we need. Well this time when i come, i am informed we no longer shop there. I have no idea why, other than "problems" Lucky for me there is another store down the block, but it is not as big and the selection sucks. I just want to use the store across the street, but apparently i would be crossing some line. Who knows.....

Also i keep forgetting....don't flush the toilet paper. I just struggle with remembering, and hence clogging the toilet. It is a hard habit to break. Anyways. All is well. Hot, muggy, but well

Hello Mexico, I am back in town...

We arrived safely after a long day of travel around 10pm last night. I did not have much energy to do anything but sleep. Didn't sleep well do to all the noise and my husbands horrible mattress. Just had a nap and am ready to relax! Catch you all laters.

I'm leaving on a jet plane.....

Tomorrow i leave for Mexico. I have the same nervous anticipation i always get. The worry about a day full of travel with a 3yr old. The excitment of seeing my husband. The fear that maybe we have nothing in common anymore or what if things are weird...(they never are, but i worry) I have overpacked. I know that. I am really hoping i get a flight attendent who will overlook the fact that my suitcases are about 55lbs each and not 50lbs. If they try and charge my the $100 overage fee, i will just unpack some stuff right there and hand it to my mom, since nothing is worth that much. God willing they let it slide though. How i will mange 200lbs of luggage and a carseat and carry ons and a 3yr old is beyond me, but it always seems to work out ok. Gotta bring as much as i can to prepare for the upcoming move.

Anyways any prayers or positve thoughts for safe travel are appreciated and i will check in when i arrive!

Hello. My name is Rebecca and I am an addict.

I know i have a problem. I have never been in denial. I just did not realize how bad it was until i started waking up in the middle of the night thinking about it. After sitting in bed tossing and turning i finally get up. Walk out to the kitchen, open the fridge and pop open a nice cold can of Diet Pepsi.  Yes that is right, i drink it in the middle of the night. I average about 5 cans and one bottle a day of the stuff. It is nuts.I know i have a problem. I know it is bad for me. I have heard all the horror stories about cancer and weight gain and what not. I don't know if is is i just dont care or i just cant stop.

I drink water too. About 5 bottles a day at work. (yes i go to the bathroom alot) I ma just a thirsty person (i have been tested for diabetes) I know it is an issue. Anyways i am not commiting to stopping. I am not commiting to cutting down. What i will say is i am gonna try and drink less. I spend crazy amount of money on soda and it really needs to end. For my health and my pocketbook. It is 11am here and i have only had one bottle and one can today. That is a big improvement. ...let's see how the rest of the day goes.
