The NVC Should Provide Remotes

I am not to sure what I want to write about today. There isn't a whole lot going on. Just the same old thing. Waiting.
There are some days that I think about what patience I must have to be waiting for so long. But then I realize that because it's not in my power to make things go faster and by not living in the movie Click, that I might not even posses the great patience I once thought. Maybe if I had the opportunity to make things go by at the speed of light, I would. At least for this point in my life, I wish I had a remote so I could fast forward to the day in which he would be with me.
Maybe someone could invent it and provide them to the people waiting for their significant other or even the parents waiting for children to cross. I know I sound nuts. I am. That is what this has turned me into. A crazy lady.

Oh great.

Good-Bye Week

Well my week is almost over.
I have class in the morning and I'm heading back home.
The hubby and I are going to try and find something fun to do for our belated anniversary. I bought him a small-ish gift that I hope he likes. I'm still learning what styles he likes and things he would love. So, we shall see!

My family is here. Safe, sound, and making a mess! Their things are everywhere and it's even worse with me having a dinker apartment. They had been in Guatemala for a few months and got back Tuesday night. So they are here with me, camping out in my living room and living out of their suitcases. We're not positive on how long they'll be here but probably until the weekend is over.

Pray for me. Marcos and I are looking into moving. If we feel led to move for sure, I'll be transferring to a school where ever that may be. So we're not sure if it will be Austin, San Antonio, Houston, or maybe even some other state. For know I'd really like to stay in Texas because of school costs. If you have any info on places to look at or cities... I'd rather live in a city, not too small of a town.

So yeah. Pray for me. I have lots on things on the brain and not sure how to sort through them.
Have a good night!

My First Time In a Mexican Hospital

What an interesting past couple of days. I spent longer in Mexico than I had originally planned. Usually I leave Sunday afternoon to beat the possible line at the border Monday morning. Well I got home today. This morning.
Sunday night I decided that I would stay until the next morning. So we were happy, spending more time together (the hubby and I). Monday morning came and I hadn't gotten much sleep because of being sick that morning. By morning I mean, 1 am maybe even 12. All I know is that I was sick enough to have my husband take me to the doctor first thing. Well at 7:30 I was in the hospital with food poisoning. By 8 I had an IV. And I stayed there the rest of the day. After noon the nurses changed shifts. In the morning I had small, unpleasant nurse who didn't really seem to care. when injecting the IV with some of my meds she seemed nice enough to advise me to tell her if it hurt. Well it did. It burned! So I told her and she didn't do anything about it. Even my husband said something when she had left. Thankfully the new nurse was nice. She asked about where I was from and about my husband while he was out buying some lunch. Nice.
Maybe it's because I haven't had an IV in long time and maybe because I have tiny arms with tiny veins, but man! My arm is still a little sore. I mean not a lot, just randomly.
Even though I was sick and wasn't too happy to be at a hospital all day, let me tell you. I feel so great. Usually after being sick like that, I would want to sleep and not eat and blah. But yesterday I felt great and I still do.
So even though I was hospitalized, I ended up having a great weekend with my husband.

And now I'll be heading out in about an hour or so in search for the bus station. Not only have I never driven there alone, I've been there once which was in the dark but it's in a city I don't know. I mean I know where the city is, but I don't know my way around. My mom and my sister are coming here for a few days and I guess my dad will meet us here tomorrow; thus the reason for needing to find the bus station.
Mapquest, don't fail me now...

What a Day...

Oh my dear readers! Forgive me for not writing on Monday as promised.

I came home Sunday evening instead of early Monday like I had planned because I didn't want to run into a long line before class.
Monday was a normal day until I got home.

As most of you don't know, I received a letter advising me to pay for the processing of the hubby's visa. Good news, yes?! So I payed right away online and waited another 3 days for further instructions. With Sunday, day three, being Easter I had to wait until Monday for the next instructions. When I got home that day I checked the email, trying not to be too excited. The instructions were there and ready. [Yes!] Because I filed for the visa here in the states instead of in Mexico, I needed to send in all the paperwork to process the visa. This meant more copies of forms, translated copies of birth & marriage certificates, photos of the husband for his visa and so on. Wow! Lots of stuff!
I didn't want to wait until the weekend to get all this done so I pack a bag and left for Mexico. Crazy, right?Thankfully things there haven't been bad and God has been protecting me while I drive.
I arrived at my husband's work and his dad [who is also his boss] let him go an hour early as well as the following day in order to get these papers finished and sent. It was my goal to get all the papers ready by 2:30 the following day in order for them to be sent by 4. Phew...! It was a crazy day! We got up and ate breakfast on the go. We also got our work-out in, by walking/running all over town instead of driving. Way to multi-task, eh? We made multiple trips to a lawyer, notary republic, mayor's office, copy center, photographer and even got stopped by some friends. It was a great day being together and thankfully got everything finished by 2 in order to have a little bit of time together without the running.
So at 2:45 (yes, I was late) I was on the road back to states in order to get to the nearest Post Office by 4. [Yeah, the old man who works there is lazy and closes super early]. Unfortunately the line at the bridge was long and couldn't cross right away. Anyone want to guess what time I got to the Post Office? 4:01   ! ! ! ! !
CLOSED! Nope, I didn't make it.
So I ran to the only other Post Office I knew how to get to and gave the package to the mailman right as he was about to leave! PRAISE GOD!!! I sent it priority again so they should receive the package tomorrow.
Now I'm just waiting for the date. They told me that's all I need now. Good!

Keep praying everyone! This is the last step!
