Merry Christmas Eve!!

...even though it doesnt feel anything like it!!
This is my 2nd year spending Christmas in Mexico and Im definately hoping my next Christmas will be a snowy one :0)
It just feels more like Christmas when its snowing outside and everything just feels so comfty and cozy inside your home, with the family cooking and music, and tons of food!!!
Here isnt bad at all, its just very different, with sunny hot days and not so much christmas spirit in the air.
I am going to Lalo and Santis house for dinner tonight, and they are having a few people over and everyone is going to join in to eat a huge stuffed turkey!! Iam going to make the mashed potatoes and gravy and were going to have some tasty wine and cheese afterwards, with some more friends stopping by then :)
The year is coming to an end so fast its crazy!! Miranda is coming in 5 days and i cant even imagine how that week is going to go....crazyyyyyyyyyyyy I hope jeje....
Off to finish some presents......:)

Merry Christmas!!!

From the sunniest part of my room!!

The sun was out a lot more a half hour ago but i got lost again on the internet and found a rave thats tonight, real close to here, so ive been trying to find out more info =)
Everyday that i am ready to go to the beach, its cloudy so i think im going to go no matter what tomorrow, rain or shine, your gonna get wet anyways, right?
Miranda comes in 10 days and i need to be out of here before that, so i have been trying to sort through clothes and decide what to give away, and what to take along with me. This has always been a process because the clothes i havent worn since i came here, i try them on and find a new found love and interest in it again and if not, ive decided to should take then home, with me. you know, you never know what i could make it in to , a bag perhaps, jeje.... but this time (after going through the pile 2 times) i ended up deciding to give away 7 things =) and most likely to paola.

Yesterday I was busy all day making tshirts and will def put up pics asap i think they turned out pretty well =)

Wakin up early

Woke up around 9 to a beautiful sunny morning :) Made myself some breakfast, need to go pick up my clothes from the laundry, my bici from lalos house, and go to the dressel office for my money and to give back my uniforms.
The days this month are going by too fast already!! Its the 16th!!!!! I feel like we just entered December. Today will be the day to get everything situated, figure out what im going to take back to the states with me, whats going to stay here, what i will give away. Im going to miss this little room of mine.

Im in love with the way the universe works..!!

After 2 years here in Playa, I have made the decision to leave here and go back home to Illinois for awhile, until my next move. The decision came so suddenly from one day to the next, & it was like the decision was already made up for me, I was just following through.
My mind started to become blurry ( or rather, coming into focus ) with everything around me and after time, and my first temazcal, I made the decision to move out of my apartment that I was living with Lalo, Santi, Marcela, and Lalos cousin Pipo, and have a little getaway of my own. For my own thoughts, and ideas and space.
I think that is when my life and thoughts began to really shift. While arranging this small room to fit "me", I started to realize a lot about myself, that I never really realize before, or better yet paid any attention to because my mind was elsewhere...
Being without Lalo, and the life I had before was opening me up to so many different, thoughts, feelings, emotion and I didnt know ( still dont know ) what to do with it but I have never felt better, happier, more sure of the next step which is coming. I never thought I would ever say that I wanted, truely wanted to go back to Illinois, to Sherrard, to my parents home, with rules.
But here I am, with a few weeks left in Playa, then off to Chiapas & Oaxaca ( which I would explain my excitement about this but it cannot be done in words ) then returning back to Playa where I would then fly out from Cancun to arrive in Moline Intl Airport where there will be snow, weather and wind so cold your eyes water, and Taco Bell waiting just minutes away =)
I love that, this is ok with me!
Right now I will enjoy my time in this magical city of so many warm memories, and celebrate not working and MIRANDA COMING!
I am so blessed with everything that I have, my family and friends being healthy and happy , and I am doin so so good!
