Been sick AGAIN!!! And some major decisions are in process!

Well, as usual, I have been sick!!! Before we moved to Mexico, I was never sick, I got sick maybe once a year and really sick every 4-5 years so, this is odd. On Saturday, I started feeling weak and by Sunday, my head started hurting. By Sunday night, I thought, I was dying!!! My body hurt, my head hurt, my face hurt and everytime I stood up, I felt like I had drunk a gallon of Tequila!!! But, unfortunately, no alcohol played part in this!
All the other times I was sick, I had medicine that I brought from the States but, I ran out last time so, I had to use medicine from here! I have proven, Mexico's medicine is shitty! Miguel bought me Next, Contact, and something else but, I don't remember the name, nothing worked! So, instead of just sleeping the sickness off, I suffered it out this time. :( I know, when I go to Texas the first thing I will buy is Nyquil and Dayquil!!!
I am still sick but, I feel better atleast, I am no longer dying.

Now for the major decision, we have been talking and somehow my husband has got it into his head to build an apartment like house on top of his parents house! Now, it would be financially sensible, this way we won't be paying rent which, is like throwing money away but, then, I will have to deal with certain people putting their nose where it doesn't belong. I think that, this problem won't be so bad since, we will have a real house with a fiull kitchen and seperate entrance and plus, they know, I will up and leave if they get too bad, I did this last time and I will do it again. Miguel''s sister would love a free house on top of Mommy dearest! LOL

Our other option is, to move to Panuco, Veracruz which is about 45 minutes from Tampico. I would love that since, it is a small town and not Monterrey which, I do not like. Miguel's grandmother has a huge house with like 5 bedrooms and she is about 84 years old and lives alone. She is constantly hinting that she wants someone to come live with her so, I don't know. first, I would need to find a job comparable to what I have now in either Tampico or Panuco. Miguel could do what his grandfather used to do which is, plant alfalfa and sell it and raise cows. I know that is good money here but, don't know how long it takes to get money from this, I assume atleast a few months for the alfalfa and atleast a year for cows.

My other thoughts are to save money and start over somewhere else but, where I can get a good job and Miguel can earn decent money. I just don't know where. I have just came to the point that, I want to be anywhere but, here, really so, the first option is like a last resort, I think. My boss has told me that in about a year he will want to transfer one of the teachers to DF to be regional manager there and was considering me so, that is an option but, DF?? I don't know how bad it is there. Any advice?


  1. Wow, I hear you. By the time we left Monterrey I was happy to go anywhere but there and now that we're ready to leave Juarez, I feel the same. I hope you figure it out soon!

  2. I hope you're feeling better! Keep us posted on your decision.

  3. Glad to hear your feeling better Stephanie. Wow that is a lot of choices to pick from. I would choose Panuco, I love the small town life but it is something that you have to keep in mind a lot of people like to be in the city and have some of the comforts of the U.S. Good luck with your choice and keep us posted. Take care.
