Yes, we are moving, and I couldn't BE more happy... :) Yes, that is my inner Chandler speaking.
Currently, hubby and I have been renting a place in the Zona Hotelera (Hotel Zone), and had nothing but problems. Well, problems for me.... we all know that when wifey isn't happy, neither is hubby!!! Hehehe - yes I can be a bit bitchy sometimes. Sorry hubs!!
We have been really lucky - in the current place we did sign a 1 year lease with our landlords, and out of the kindness of their hearts we are off the hook!! Minus deposit, but that is a-okay for this chicita. Adios to scorpions, TERRIBLE plumbing, salty water, shitty boiler, neighbours annoying chihuahuas, 2 burners, and super high electrical costs!!! Heck, the list could go on and on....
In the new place we will be closer to the entire family, and all of our friends. My pilates centre is less than a 5 minute drive from the new place, Costco is around the corner, and a few of my favourite hang out spots!!!
Ohhhh what does the new place have??? A dishwasher, a freaking dishwasher!! Bestill my heart. I am so not used to seeing them that when we looked at the place I didn't notice, hubby did!! Like he does any dishes?? LOL!!!
We will no longer have one central A/C system - that should cut the electrical costs in half. Not to mention, electricity in el centro is MUCH cheaper than here in the ZH. Ohhh.... we'll also have a gas stove with 6 working burners, and oven. In this house we had 2 burners, and no oven - electrical to boot.
Only problem we are faced with now is that moving day is on the 10th of June. Do you know what that means for us? We have one day to make sure everything gets set up properly. World Cup 2010 kicks off on the 11th. Mexico is playing S.Africa in the opening match!!! Ohhhh please OH please let this work for us!!! We realllly don't want to fight the crowds trying to get a spot somewhere decent!!!
Anyways, I'll have to post some pictures as soon as we move in. Hopefully our furniture will be in those pics. Looks like our container we shipped from Canada 6 months ago may actually be arriving.....I am not holding my breath....
Yay for me - scorpion free!!!!!
