So I get a whole bunch of text messages, calls, and e-mails asking where our beloved J is actually at. I am Point (A) Pasadena, TX and he is Point (B) In a small town an hour outside of Guadalajara, Jalisco. We are 9 miles shy of 1,000 miles between us. Let’s just say 1,000 I am bound to get lost once or twice on our way there. Google maps says it’s a 16 hour drive, but we won’t be driving nights so it will be at least two days if we get an early start. Yeah that’s going to happen because I am an upsie daisy, early bird gets the worm, morning person!
Point (C) San Blass, Playa Borrego – Where we could possibly live near Puerto Vallarta but not so touristic and still on the WEST Coast, That H20 we love to see, crystal clear blue. I picked this place because if we come across any trouble we can run back to family only 4 hours away.
Point (D) San Miguel del Allende – A friend of a friend. We heard this friend wants to move back to the US and their home has a guest house. They need someone to look out for their vacation home I suppose. Alas, that would be ideal, but it may be too good to be true.
Point (E) Tampico – Grandma wants us to go there. It’s where she is from and claims the water is beautiful there. Dad disagrees, says it’s still the Gulf. We don’t care but being near the ocean would be a dream come true regardless.
Point (F) Cancun – J has a friend there. Who says there is plenty of work for him. J is a procrastinator and hasn’t even called him. Highly unlikely we will go here to live but we will go.
Then there is the purple markings. The one on the border is where I would like to live so I could cross my kids over to school every morning and I could work and earn USA money. Except the danger is to high, so we will skip that. Then there is Durango, where my mother was from. I haven’t visited since I was eleven, from what I remember it may have been fun but I would be heading home in two weeks for sure. Cabo, because the only way some “Friends” will visit, if they come on a cruise ship. All three places highly unlikely. More like no it isn’t going to happen.
We have considered many places, and we won’t decide until we are together. I sure would like somewhere my family and best buds are not afraid to visit. They have all said, “no way Jose” when I tell them to vacation with me. I will remind them once the first daring person joins us for some fun and they are begging to come.
