Busy, busy, busy

I have a lot to catch you up on. The Tulum ruins, Coba, our attempt to go out to a DJ "Wrestle", very bad Flamenco dancing, and then tomorrow the Sian Kaan biosphere reserves. Caleb's sister has been visiting and now we are cleaning the apartment getting ready for his folks. It's going to be very tight here for a bit. My guts are tied up in a bit of a knot - I think it's just all this heavy food we've been eating. Don't get me wrong, the food is great, but just a different diet then I'm used to.

Also a few days ago, I nearly killed my laptop. That would possibly have been the end of this blog - at least for a while. I spilled a bottle of water onto the keyboard. If anyone out there is drinking a beverage while they are reading this, please take a moment and move it far, far away. The screen went blank and I didn't have a computer for a long, tearful while. The hairdryer set on cool dried things out a bit. Honestly I know it was a miracle that this thing works again. I am a fool, but God is merciful. This is a lesson I learn over and over again.

So, when things settle down a bit and we're not trying to pack it all in, I'll post pictures and a detailed account of all our adventures. I promise.

I am Jess' neighbor Stacie. I own #16 next door to you. You have my bike and thus a key to my house.
Your parents are welcome to stay in our place a few days if you would like. All that I ask it that it is clean, (sheets and all)and vacated by Friday the 28th for our arrival. Also I have an air mattress and bedding in the top of the closet on the far left side if you want to borrow it for their stay. Whatever I can do to make things more comfortable for you. As for your stomach you may need a course of Cipro. In the meantime you should start sqeezing lime into your drinks. The locals squeeze lime on their food and drinks and swear it helps stomach upset. Looking forward to meeting you both. Maybe we can all grab an appetizer together or something!
