Well today my husband went back to work after his almost week and a half off. At his work you don't really add up hours for vacation time. You get one week a year for the first few years then after that they slowly add more time. You also don't get to pick when you go. As a matter of fact they changed our week on us twice, once a month before the dates and the second time a week before. So now we know not to buy any tickets ahead of time next year. He got more than a week because of some recent overtime he had done. The don't pay you for overtime here they just give you time off which is fine with us also. We were not planning on going to far but we did want to visit some friends (Leslie) and head down to Lake Chapala and see some of Issacs old friends down there. Well the first day of his vacation we headed to Guadalajara to hang out with Melissa (Refried Dreamer). As always it took us as long to find where we were going as it took to get to Guad. As we were searching for the right street our truck started acting crazy. We did make it though and because of the truck situation we decided not to do much but to hang out with them at their shop. Melissa did take us to Costco which is a treat for people who don't have any stores that big in town. We got quite a few things that wont run out for a long time. ;) We brought the truck in to get looked at and over the next few days got several different opinions on it. No matter where we went it all came down to the fact that our Vacation money was going into the truck. So for my husbands first time off in over a year we got to stay home. I suppose it worked out for the best at least we didn't spend all the money then find out the truck was broke. Since we weren't going anywhere we decided to have some people over for cake and icecream for our now 3yr old. We celebrated early which was a good thing because by the time the birthday came she had a stomach flu. Poor baby thank goodness shes feeling better now. The good thing about Mexico with sick kids is that there is always a tienda very close, for us its downstairs. I remember in the states having to call someone to either bring me the pedialite and soup or to sit with her while I went to get it. Well on Fri night one of Issacs cousins stopped through on his way down to the lake and he stayed here with the girls so we could go out on a date. So at least we got to go out. We went bowling and I kicked his butt. hee hee. Then we played pool and he kicked mine. Funny how a date turns in to who kicks whos butt. lol But it was so good to get out and knowing we may not get to again for a bit made it so much nicer. We then went our for tacos. Yummmm. Well I seriously thought he was going to be sick of us after all that time at home with us but he wasn't. And I miss him already. Its nice to know that after 4 yrs of marriage and a year of living together that we could spend every waking hour together and still miss each other. I love that I still miss him when hes at work everyday. And he feels the same way. Once again just more reassurance that this is where Im suppose to be.
