2015 and 2016

I had this post partly ready to go and then we went to New York and I didn't get it finished till today.  Still counts.

Here's what I hoped for this year, with the stuff I did crossed off:

Walk normally ASAP
Guanajuato with the boys
Oaxaca?  Probably wishful thinking
Cousins visit
No medical mishaps or emergencies for anyone
Everyone makes it to the US for a quick visit in June
Master tamale making so I can eat them anywhere in the world
Explore western Mexico more
More pyramids
Visit Charlottesville
New York City at least once
Get ready to wring everything we can out of a few months in Washington DC

Pretty good. It is cheating to say we went to New York because we didn't get there till January 1st, but I'll count it. And I wouldn't say I capitalized Arabic, although a lot has come back to me. The Yucatan trip was one of the best things we've ever done.  So amazing. It was a good year although I knew I'd have to leave Mexico and I never like leaving another country.  That part has been as bad as usual. Maybe someday it won't be so bad?

This year:

  • Finish Washington DC.  I don't want to have a lot of things I wish I'd done. I'll be back, but it probably won't ever be both as easy as it is right now to see all the things.
  • Have school go well for everyone
  • Get to Saudi by train and ship and not so many planes (at least with a few trains?)
  • Figure out how to live in Riyadh reasonably well by the end of the year
  • Moderation in all things 
  • Write something?
