T Minus (less than) One and a Half Months... ???

I knew December would creep up on me without my noticing, and yes I realize that it's only November 16th, but that means the month is half over and I really feel no more prepared than I did a month ago. Thankfully, Mi Amor is on the ball and is working out logistical issues with business #2 and is working his tail off to make as much money and establish as much of a base as possible before we get there. The plan is to have employees in two cities eventually, and he has a friend with a small house we'll rent near where they'll work. Interestingly enough, this was an idea we both came up with separately. He's got a loyal following in the area he's in right now and while it makes logistical sense to relocate so I don't have to commute an hour each way through the mountains on a daily basis, it kind of sucks to lose such steady income by picking up shop and moving. So, via working some events this month he's hoping to make enough money to not only get the appliances we need to buy (an oven and a washer) but to get the other house and keep everything going there after the holidays.

La Hija is watching Yo Gabba Gabba and all I have to say is that this is the trippiest show in the world and if it wasn't for the fact that I know it would be impossible for anyone to lace my koolaid with something psychotropic, I'd seriously wonder... They're singing a song that says, "don't... don't... don't bite your friends!" ....I think I love it. It's hilarious!

I have to send out another box this week. It's Mi Amor's birthday soon and I didn't get him much, but I'd like to be sure it gets to him before the big day.

While drafting a post this afternoon, I realized how fast the time is going for my own departure south. So, I can really appreciate yours.

It's exciting and nerve wracking all at once. The anticipation is the most difficult part of it for me.

Yuck...moving. Whenever I've moved, I've found out what a pig I've been. I clean things out regularly, but I seem to be a crap magnet. So, in spite of not liking to move, I guess it's a good thing!

This whole experience has definitely made me downsize. It's interesting because I've found that I have some pretty irrational attachments to some possessions and while still feeling the need to keep much less around. It's definitely a good thing, but its goodness doesn't keep it from being a pain in the posterior! hehe

One thing I'm really glad about is that Mi Amor is taking care of the change of residence in El Salvador before we get down there... I don't think I could handle moving *again* after all of this moving in the states! :)
