The holidays are officially over, for last year at least anyways. Here where I am in Las Tablas, Panama there is always an excuse for a holiday or fiesta. But the main holidays and celebrations for 2013 are at an end at last and so is some of the traveling for a few months. I had a great time, but an emotional time. It was so hard fitting in packing, relaxing, visiting, shopping and spending time with loved ones all in a matter of 3 weeks. I rarely slept but I did it! For example, New Years eve was spent with just me and my mom. We managed to do some shopping, eating out and took in 3 movies that day and I was still able to get home before the ball dropped at midnight and share a glass of eggnog with my husband and kiss him happy new years.
It has taken me a week now to get adjusted from freezing climates in Kentucky to 90 degree weather here in Panama but I am adjusting. This morning I was awoke by the sweeping of the gardener outside our bedroom window. I didn’t mind getting up earlier since I knew there was things I was needing to do today. There was the plumber coming, the AC guy coming and another guy coming. All of which my husband will handle while I smile and try and look busy while they are here. Why? Because they all speak spanish except maybe one so I leave it up to John to entertain with his vocabulary and don’t even try my hillbilly pronounced broken spanish that I have learned since I have been here.
Right now I plan on focusing more on Shopping Wives. I have so many review items I want to share with all my readers! Items that I have tried throughout the holiday, items that will make PERFECT Valentines day gifts or even birthday gifts.
I have also been doing really well at staying on the healthier side of the track, and believe me that hasn’t been easy! sometimes the people you think is the ones that would support you 110% is the ones that could potentially cause you to give up. But the truth is.. you are the only one that can let them get to you. Will I do it this time? All I can do is take it day by day and see what happens. But I do hope to share with you all my successes!
I hope everyone reading this blog today has an absolutely great day!
