Last Sunday was a special day for me and my children. One of Joy Boy’s wishes was to see Music and The Spoken Word live. So we did! I dropped the kids off at Temple Square, so they could go and get us seats, while I parked the car. Im grateful that I did this… Read More Sunday Tender Mercies
Good morning! I can’t sleep! I wish I could because 5 1/2 hours of sleep is NOT enough for me. But I keep getting woken up at 6:25 – 6:45 a.m. This normally would be a good thing, but I’m not at home. The sun is barely coming up where we are right now. But… Read More I Can’t Sleep!
Last Saturday night, GingerSnap and I attended The Ballet with a family friend who will have moved by the time we return to Costa Rica.

We had one amazing, wonderful and satisfying weekend. So much so, I literally forgot to blog. (I hope I blog on our trip in a few weeks. Maybe I’ll set an alarm to remind me? 🤷🏻♀️) Curly Cook started the weekend off by buying and wrapping a wedding gift for her primary teacher Julissa. She… Read More RNC Dance and a Wedding
Got to love it when this happens. . . This is one of the downsides of not speaking the language well enough, as well as not knowing when Costa Rican holidays are celebrated. Today is Labor Day in Costa Rica. So this bad boy was dumped down the drain in a nearby grocery store, so… Read More That’s a Bummer!
Today I am busy at work planning, scheduling, arranging, and processing all that me and my family need and would like to do while we are visiting the United States this summer. It really is an EXHILARATING process to go through! I haven’t done this in 3 years, but I love it!! Every thought of… Read More Excitedly Planning!
Today we reserved just for our family. While the rest of Costa Rica was celebrating “Good Friday,” our family took a road trip . . . to see the gorgeous Orosi Valley . . . and Tapanti National Park. Thank heavens we are residents! It only cost us 800 colones each (around 1.33 per person)… Read More Easter Family Day 2019
