I am home in beautiful peaceful Merida. The sun is shining but its not too hot and we are happy, happy, happy… My cat Hobbsie is playing hard-to-get but I can tell he’s glad to see me. The pool is not filled with yucky green stuff. None of my plants have died; in fact we have a bumper crop of orchids! My bed with its soft clean sheets felt like Heaven last night…
Nonetheless, coming home does present a few bummers.
Bummer Number One: The laundry and grocery shopping loom like unassailable mountains before me.
Plan of attack: Mañana!
Consolation: I have patient friends
Bummer Number Three: I stepped on the scale and saw a number that no scale should ever climb up to. I tried again and yes, the number was still there.
Unequivocal Decision: No more daily margaritas… no more pan dulce for breakfast… Much more exercise!
Are you reading this post from a cold and dreary place?
If so, look at the orchids breathe deeply… then smile!
