Sept 18th Update

I have been staying here in Tucson visiting family and getting a few personal things done; one is visiting doctors I have been to see a cardiologist and had to wear a heart monitor for a day and later this month I am to visit with him again to get the results. I also have a visit planned with a dermatologist to get cancer screened, way past due on that topic. I did some house sitting for the family while they went on vacation and I guess I did a good enough job, nothing died and the house was still standing when they got back :)

Other than that things have been boring just waiting to get reports from the doctors and waiting for my property to sell in Texas which seems to be taking an awful long time to sell.

I have started a vegan diet ala Pres. Clinton to control the plaque in my arteries, so far I have lost five pounds which pleases me quite a bit. I have been wondering how I would be able to do that diet in Mexico.

Making plans (in my head)

I keep thinking about how I will make my move to Mexico. There are many decisions to be made;
What to do with my RV is one and what vehicle I should buy and bring to Mexico is another, as I have pets driving to Merida is the best alternative even though it is a pain in the butt is driving 1200 miles through Mexico. Although I have done it before and it would be a grand adventure :)

Finding a place to stay that could be a problem. I could stay for a while at the same hotel I stayed at before if they still accept pets for a week or two or until I find a house to rent. Hmmm, lots to think about.

With the new Mexican Immigration laws coming into effect I should get a move on !

Dear me what to do ?

Still here

I know I haven't posted in a long while and I feel guilty about that, but the deal fell through on selling the ranchito and I gave up waiting around to find a seller and left it in my real-estate agent's hands and hit the road. I am now in Idaho visiting family and having a wonderful time.

I have been studying Spanish and still it goes slowly when you don't have a teacher present to keep you on track and challenged and not being able to converse with Spanish speakers daily is a hindrance. From past experience I know that once I get into usage Spanish, even my limited version, I will improve once I am using it daily. To that end I plan to start using Spanish more in my daily life; listening to Spanish radio, TV and novelas.

I am thinking of returning to Mexico this idea has been swirling around my brain for weeks now and it is getting more and more intense as time goes on. What is it about Mexico that I like so much ? Why does Mexico pull at me like a magnet ? Something to think about. I keep looking at the real-estate ads for Merida and remember all the cute little old houses there in Centro and how things looked and all the places to visit and what the sounds are like there. If you can't stand noise don't go to Mexico there is plenty of noise all kinds of noise; fireworks, dogs, traffic, car/truck horns, music, construction noises, loud talking/yelling, animal noises the whole enchilada. I miss it.

My health has been good lately, knock on wood, no pain no discomfort not fatigue life has been good; I hope it stays that way....

Update March 28, 2011

Been in the hospital again with chest pain no heart attack just Angina, found out that I have some scaring on the heart from some previous incident that I wasn't told about. Feel better now and I am back walking my dog and doing normal stuff. Now and then I have to pause to let the heart/lungs catch up but it doesn't seem to worry the Docs.

I have been spending time with family in Tucson Az and now that there is an offer on the house in Texas I am headed back there to make sure everything goes smoothly and sell my van. Hopefully all will go well and the house will sell without a hitch.

The bug came back or wasn't gone so back to the doctor for more medication to fight the infection. This time he sent off for a culture to see what kind of bug I have to make sure that the medications will work. I sure hope it does as this being sick stuff gets on my nerves and when the medication doesn't work heightens my concern.

I sold my truck yesterday it was a Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel with four doors. I am happy to have it gone one less thing to deal with and worry about, not mention the expense of insurance and registration. Good bye truck :)
