Obviously I have failed at blogging in the last six months. I'm not a journal writer, so this doubles as the written account of our "immigration experience" and its really important to me to have this to look back on. So, I present my New Year's Resolution--blog often and blog well. I've never had a resolution before, but I'm hoping for the 45 year old me who needs to lose weight that I am good at keeping them.
I'll begin six months of catch up with summary:
June: Anna left Mexico.
Jose and I went to Huetamo, his hometown in Michoacan.
July: I left Mexico to start at UC Berkeley for the 6 week summer session.
Jose must have passed his time somehow, but I don't know what he did. You'll probably never know, either, because he stays away from this blog like its poison.
August: I finished school (2 A's!) and went back to Mexico for 10 days.
We celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary!
September: Emma in school.
Jose started working, kind of.
October: Emma in school.
Jose working, kind of.
November: I went to Mexico for a few days and brought the dogs home with me. They are living with my parents.
Jose worked, kind of.
December: I finished school (all A's!) and went back to Mexico. My family visited for Christmas.
Jose got ready for our visit.
January: Jose moved to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico for school!
Emma is leaving January 17th for school.
There's a short run-down of the last half year that I'll expand on in the next week or so until, and I'm serious about this, I get caught up.
