An Interview

Today, I had an interview for a teaching position here in Mexico. I haven’t had an interview (unless you can consider potential client meetups) in …. well, a really long time!

Solovino

Here’s an update on our new puppy… yes, he’s officially ours! His name is Solovino, meaning he came to us on his own. We call him Poco (a little) as a nickname right now as well because he’s just this little thing! We have to be careful not to step on him, especially since he’s…

Nightly Walks

Each evening, we take the dogs on a walk. It is a wonderful part of my day, as the sun is setting and the mosquitos are out…no, I am just kidding, they are always out! Seriously though, I love our nightly walks. We go a different path each night, which allows me to see the…
