I'm still here

I apologize for not writing sooner.  I wrote the last post around the time school started and my schedule got crazy.  Then I was still feeling bad for longer than I thought was "normal" and didn't want to write.  Recently, I thought about writing and was sort of unsure how to get started again....En fin.  I'm still here.

So, back in August, I told my husband how I was feeling and he agreed that we should eventually live for some time in the U.S. but that for now he is not ready.  I was hoping for next school year but that is too soon.  It's hard for him to envision himself earning a living there since he has had the same business here since before I knew him.  I understand that and am trying to lower my expectations/time line for moving.  I also try to put myself in his shoes and it makes me almost back down, just because I know how much of a change it will be.  I almost back down...but don't.  For now moving is on the back burner.

I am very thankful for all the comments and concern I've gotten from all of you mexpats.  I feel understood.  I wish I had had this kind of support way back when I first came here but I sure am grateful for it now.
Thank you.  Thank you for understanding how I feel and commiserating with me.

I will try to blog on a more regular basis again.


  1. Glad that you're still with us. You hang in there girl. We've all felt the way you have.

  2. I was wondering how you've been doing. ((((hugs))) I'm so glad to hear you and your husband have things worked out about it and I'll be praying for you both in the coming months/years and the changes that will eventually happen.

    Prayers and love!

  3. Glad to see that you are feeling better. Sometimes life just "gets" to us. Stay strong and know you have tons of on line support

  4. Glad to hear that you are still here. Hang in there amiga. I will be keeping you in my thoughts. Take care.

  5. Glad to see that you're still here with us. :) And I really hope that you are feeling better. If not, I'm just an email away and/or you could always pour your heart out here on your blog. I know a few people who swear blogging is better than therapy. (And it's cheaper too!)


  6. Thank you Lisa :) Thank you Leslie. De verdad :) I appreciate your kind thoughts.
