A quick bite

1. Mark is Superman. He drove the entire trip and never subjected me (or himself or the other drivers on the road) to the torture of my stick shift skillz. He’s a good man.

2. We’re in Monclova, Mexico. We’ve been to a Christmas Eve party, church service and wedding so far. The people here are seriously SO nice. They also have a McDonald’s. And a Burger King. My kind of place.

3. I don’t know what is wrong with me, but it’s been 55-65 degrees the entire time we’ve been here and I’m bundled up in sweaters and scarves. I understand that this is warm, in my world, for December but I think seeing everyone else in scarves and sweaters has convinced me this is cold.

4. I don’t know that I could have asked for better in-laws. Funny, thoughtful, generous, lots of great adjectives to use. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. Two weeks with a family I haven’t spent much time with is scary, especially when that family comes with the label “in-laws”. However, each day I’m falling more and more in love with these wonderful people.

5. We’re getting to spend lots of time laying around “doing diddly”, as evidenced by my favorite in-law of all Mac…

Ok, that’s a quick update mostly so that no one thinks I killed us on the road. And tomorrow we’re hoping to bring you a special Mexican Domesticate Me video for your holiday viewing pleasure.

    Marie!! I’m so glad that you made it okay. I have been thinking/worring about you guys! Thanks for the update. I was going to text you but was afraid you might kill me over the international rates. (I called from the cruise ship while in the water near Mexico somewhere. I talked to my mom for like 10 minutes and it was only $5. So don’t worry if you want to make a call. It’s not that bad.)

    Glad to hear things are going well with the in-laws. But seriously, I think you could get along with anyone. You are so friendly and fun.

    PS. It’s seriously cold here. They are predicting snow! Yippee!! If I’m stuck at home, at least it should snow. Right? I hope that doesn’t deter you from coming back across the border. I’m ready for you to be back and come visit us!! 🙂 lol

    PSS. Of course, they have McDonald’s!! Everyone does!! They are in Europe too!
