Oh mi God.
This heat is becoming unbearable. Yesterday, by the house, was 99 freakin degrees outside and it doesn't seem like it's gonna stop anytime soon.
Next weekend we'll be heading to an expo in Veracruz and I'm afraid I won't survive. The heat, I will assume, will be unbearable and the humidity? who knows. Nevertheless, Cordoba here we come!
Some good news, for those of you that are interested in travelling and have, e'hem, spouses with less than ideal records...... Hubby recently applied for his passport, slightly nervous that for some odd reason, he would have complications.
Nothing! He ended up going to the registro who sent him to a separate office nearby. He was there for about 2 hours, took his photos, filled out his app., they took his brand new (within 6 months old) birth certificate and whoila!!! His 3 year passport will be in the mail in the next two weeks! That was it! ( i think ending cost was a little over 1000 pesos...but don't quote me on that one.)
You can find out where to get your mexican passport in your area here and how much it will be here.
I'm super excited that all of this worked out since we recently found out that hubby nailed a spot in both the London tattoo show and the Barcelona Tattoo show, this September. Even better, both shows dance around my upcoming dirty-thirty. We've been wanting to travel to ANYWHERE in Europe as long as I can remember....and that dream happened to be one of the reasons we filed petitions to rectify hubby's status in the States... and the denial that thus, resulted in our current, uh.... location. It's supposed to be one of the most amazing shows out there and we're really excited to take part in it. We'll be hanging out with some amazing and inspiring people and have the opportunity to backpack wherever our journey happens to take us.
But until then, we're gonna have to budget ourselves.
It was great to have some good news after another crappy attempt at moving our sex shop to a better location. We got all the way to contract/deposit/designing proposed changes to a building that seriously needed improvement... only to meet the owner at the very last minute. Ugh! Not only did he talk down to us, but shot down every one of our proposed changes/additions. We modified and kept trying to make the transaction and only to be shot down repeatedly. He didn't want to change his crappy building and apparently, thought that his generic dirty building was reminiscint of the 50-60s era. Institutionalized windows and cracky paint aren't a style, man) Sooooo.... we're still on the hunt for a new local.
Other than that..... it's really f'in hot.
and all I seem to want is a really cold beer.

- I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
