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!

Back to work

This Saturday (yes in 2 days) i am going back to Seattle to work for 90days. It all happened so fast. See i need to get a job here in Mexico but i need my visa first. That costs money. Plus you make so little here, i thought , well Daniel is starting school, i may never have the opportunity to work in the states again for a short period of time without leaving Daniel here or pulling him out of school (school is pretty much year round, summer break is about 6weeks)  Why don't i work one last time to pay off some of the bills i am paying back home and get the money for my visa.....

So on Tuesday i had this idea and that same day i conatacted my old employer. Next day i got confirmation of a job and today (thurs) i bought my tickets home for Satureday. School here does start the end of Aug, and we will be coming back the end of Sept, so Daniel will miss the first month of school. I think he will be okay though. It i just preschool, not like an AP course.

I am excited to be back for awhile and make some extra money, but there is that sadnes. Mexico is my home. I don't want to leave my husband behind. I don't know how my son will adapt to not only leavign his dad again, but me working full time. I hope he does not feel abandonded. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers sthat the next three months go quickly.

i feel ya... i also go back every now and then for a bit to make some extra cash,stock up on supplies and visit the fam bam. I know it seems hard to leave the hubby behind... but sometimes a little break is a good thing. So that my kids don't feel abandoned (becuase I really don't see them that much when we go back.) we really rely on my parents and sisters to keep them busy.... because it will be a while before we will see them again. Good luck!

Good luck Rebecca. It's not easy to make money here in Mexico that's for sure. We'll be thinking about you and we'll keep in touch through our blogs. I send you a big hug and remember that everything is going to be just fine.
