Once again, I’ve fallen woefully behind in my blogging. I think I need a proper schedule to stay on top of things.
It’s already December and we’ve started in on the festivities. The tree is up and the kids are enjoying the advent calendar that I made a few years back. We still have more decorating to do, but we’re working on adding more fun crafts each day.
November went by in a blur, with the trip to the lake, the craziness that followed (I came back with giardia, my friend and blog reader had dengue), then working on finishing up the pitch challenge I was taking, which turned out to be a bit of a mess, as they changed the deadline three times. We also had a couple of donation trips to the hospital, which I need to get the photos up for (they’re on a memory card that has been temporarily misplaced, along with some other photos). I have also been petsitting for a friend and with the American Thanksgiving, there was also a lot to bake and sell, but things are finally settling down a bit.
Over the past week, we’ve seen a number of incidents in Antigua and area, as well. Two, possibly three, bus drivers have been shot recently, which is pretty much unheard of in this particular area. It’s resulted in all public transport being halted from Santa Maria de Jesus and San Juan del Obispo. Then, while Irving was in the market the other day with the boys, a man from our town threw himself under a bus and killed himself. Fortunately, Irving managed to get the kids away from the place before they saw anything.
So, things have been rather busy around here. Between all the happenings and work, I’m keeping nicely occupied. ?
