Living in Belize

A+ For Tacoboy

Share

I woke up from the strangest dream this morning. I was right in the middle of a timed shopping spree. I was in the toy department looking for games and thinking I’d have enough time to head back to clothing before my time was up. Not sure what store or country I was in, but I do remember thinking the blue lounge chair covers may be difficult to carry.

It’s almost the New Year and this week I have decided to clean up my email inbox, which is no small task, as I have 52 pages of emails to go through and check what can be deleted.

I wrote on the blackboard for this week that I will work on doing 5 pages worth a day (among other things) and I got a bit ahead by doing 7 yesterday.

While on my mission I found some pictures from Michele of the Ce-note she took us to in Playa Del Carmen.

Rob and Michele are a great example of a family who chose to live in a 3rd world country with 3 kids (a teenager and 2 younger ones) and have been very successful for themselves. They’re a great role models, especially for people with kids, to show you can make the tropical dream work.

Above is a picture of Paul and I in our pre aqua-fit days. I have definitely toned up a bit since then. In some of the pictures below, there are some very fit men doing some incredible acrobatics. It’s pretty amazing what they can do. Tacoboy gets an A + for being willing to attend aqua-fit class sometimes.

I made it down to 40 pages and 1000 emails – not including what’s in folders that is just my inbox. Doing my best to organize last years correspondence before the New Year. I’m curious if anyone else goes through this, or do you keep on top of emails regularly and avoid the build up? Please leave a comment and let us all know. Will keep plugging away later. Just finishing my iced coffee and trying to figure out if I should wear a wet suit to the pool. Ruth and I are in a mini chat, and she said probably not a bad idea for me today.

    Thanks for the kind words!! I can tell you that moving down here is not as simple as it seems. It helps tremendously that Michele and I are a team and tend to tackle things with a grain of salt in one hand and a cocktail in the other.

    My other advice for people thinking about chucking it all for the beach life is that you need to say hello to the ex-pats that are already in your beach town, they will make the transition to life down here 100 times easier.

    As for the email thing, I am just setting up a new Mac (I know I am late in joining the party!) and right now it is downloading over 9000 emails!! I will be sorting email until next New Years!

    Happy New Year, Tacos!!
