Disculpenme, mis amigos! Please excuse my absence, my friends. There is a reason for my silence.
You see, a few weeks ago I received a phone call from an employment agency. When I glanced at the caller ID I thought, "Ho hum. Another call from this agency, probably to offer me an ill-fitting job which I'll have to politely decline." Nope. This was a job offer alright, but it was from them, directly. An in-house position.
I am now a staffing consultant at an employment agency. A very exhausted and overwhelmed staffing consultant. I arranged for daycare for my son at a Spanish immersion daycare only 1 minute from my office, and every morning and evening this week we made the commute together. This is to be our routine until kindergarten starts, when we will make only a short commute together, since school is closer to home than my work.
What does this mean for our Mexico plans? Nothing, yet. We are taking it one step at a time.
We are grateful for this new opportunity, since we desperately need to save money, no matter where we choose to live. It fell onto our laps, and we're goin' with the flow, waiting to see where it takes us.
Apart from my new job, we have also had a few very delicate conversations with my mom and dad about our Mexico plans. There is still a slight possibility that we could end up moving to what I am starting to think of as "Almost Mexico", which would include Texas, New Mexico, or Nevada.
No matter what, we WILL be leaving Minnesota within the next 18 months or so.
As for now, I am trying to keep a career woman mindset, so that I can help bring in the dough for our family. Who knows, maybe I'll love it, make lots of moolah (there's a lot of potential for commission), and we'll end up in our dream adobe home in the Southwest, just one short nonstop flight from my in-laws............
