So yesterday's post was all, 'Woe is me. I hate winter. Why does there have to be weather?' and that kind of whining is just insufferable. So today, I'm going to focus on what I'm grateful for in my life, because I'm a grateful person. I'm grateful like Oprah. I'm kind like Oprah, except Oprah has billions of dollars, and I have less than billions of dollars.
Now that we all agree I'm like Oprah, let me show you something which makes me feel very grateful...pictures of a home we rented while we lived in Mexico.
People always ask us why we moved to Mexico. We tell them we moved to Mexico because 1] the dollar stretches like a contortionist there 2] it's cheap and 3] it's Mexico. This house cost us $40 a month. No, not really, however, it was much less than what we would have paid in the US. We probably paid in rent what Oprah spends on date night with Stedman. Again, I know, so much like Oprah.
Anyway, here's the house:
View from the street.
Entry. [The Realtor sent us these photos. The house was never this picked-up.]
Front room. One of the only rooms in the house which was air conditioned. It's also where I started this blog.]
This photo was taken standing in the front room [in the above photo]. The two doors on the right open to bedrooms.
The door straight ahead leads to the front room. The stairs on the right go up to the kitchen.
Here's the kitchen. The mosquitoes were so bad that we needed to wear bug repellent whenever we cooked. I know. Poor us.
Covered area just off the pool. It's where we spent most of our time, obviously.
View from 3rd floor patio overlooking the cathedral.
So there it is, and I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to live in Mexico and live there in such a beautiful home. That house really is unbelievable, right? And isn't throwing photos of our "paradise with a front door" in your face so much less insufferable than the whining?
