going home

It has been some time since I have been in the blogging world. To be honesty I haven't really felt up to it. Sometimes it feels like work instead of something fun.

But, I am finally on the home stretch of what has been falling into place and I am feeling like I need to fill everyone in. Or at least the few people that read this.

Over the past 6 months, maybe a bit longer, I have been trying to figure out what my family should do. While looking back through this blog alone, I can see that several "plans" have been put in action.

What it boils down to is that I had no idea what I should be doing. What I have been doing is trial and error. The great thing about trial and error is that eventually you do find the solution. Sometimes it just takes a bit of time and patience. The patience part I am still working on...

So, I am announcing for the masses to know that I have found the solution that works best for my family and what feels right. I am going back. Yes, I am moving back to Mexico. Jorge knew all along that what I had planned for us to do wouldn't work out for him. He couldn't stand being away from me the majority of the time and the girls half of the time. I, on the other hand, thought I could just push aside my feelings and just go. But, that is easier said than done.

I don't know how long we will HAVE to be in Mexico, but what I do know is that I want my family to be together. The girls are too young to be put through this. Heck, at any age it would be too much to do to them.

I have many people to thank for helping me get to this point. I am in no means doing this thing without the help of them. You know who you are! I won't embarrass you by naming names.

This whole situation has taught me a lot. I had already learned quite a few lessons within the first year of this journey. But, more and more things are becoming clear. I know where my priorities lie and I am making sure they stay just where they should.

I am heading back down on February 12th. I can't wait to see my girls! And my HUSBAND!

Wow. Have your girls been there all this time? Good luck and keep us posted. Do you still have your little house you had before? I'll be checking in on you to see how things go. Be careful.

The girls were with me and the three of us went down to be with Daddy for Christmas and Bella's 3rd birthday. I left them there with him. So, I have been up here solo for a month.

I am VERY ready to go home. I actually moved up the date I am leaving to this Friday (the 5th).

We are still living in the same house. You will probably be seeing some updated photos shortly after I get there because I have plans to decorate and change some things around.

Thanks for checking in. I have been absent a long time but I plan to blog regularly again once I am back to my normal routine.

Can't wait to see my family!

I've missed your family while you were absent. Can't wait to get all updated. Your girls are so precious and I know you are desperate to see and hold them again. Be careful and let us know when you get there and that all is ok. Oh, and thanks for replying to me. :)
