home again Home Again Jiggedy Jog

Well we made it....with not one piece of luggage, but we made it! hopefully the luggage will catch up with us soon. We have little to wear so I think everyone around us hopes it catches up with us too...ha ha! But we are used to living pretty simply so it's not that big of a deal. The funny thing is what I'm wanting from my luggage isn't the clothes (although that would be a nice perk). But I have cooking supplies in there - like 2 Comals, spices, etc. I am ready to have. I mixed up flour tortillas last night for dinner and remembered I didn't have my comals....UGH! So I had to use an iron skillet, they weren't as good. So hopefully the luggage will arrive SOON!!
We had 2 layovers and when we arrived at the first our luggage didn't arrive with us. Nope it never started the journey home even. Apparently it wanted to stay on Roatan Island - but we were ready to LEAVE! Now don't get me wrong. We LOVE LOVE LOOOOVE Roatan. It's amazing and fabulous and everyone should go! BUT the reason we go works well for us. Leaving Trujillo is hard. We never ever want to. Heading to Roatan for a few days of a change of scenery and a change of pace helps us move into wanting to come home and acclimate back into North American life a bit. By the end of the week we were very ready to go home.
Our life in Trujillo is so very very different than our life in the USA. Just being in our house here can be overwhelming for us. Being in our church building. Riding in our car. Going to a store. All of that is overwhelming at some level. So going to Roatan first helps with some of that...not all of it, but some if it.

It was an AMAZING summer...and we're looking forward to a wonderful fall!
I'll post a few pictures soon....hubby has the laptop with all the photos with him at a business meeting today.

Can't imagine the differences, sure you are slightly overwhelmed!
HOpe the luggage makes it soon, but most of all-- WELCOME HOME

Welcome home! Let me know if you need me for anything while you are trying to get back into the swing of things here in the good ol' USA! (Of course I never keep a stock of anything in my pantry and I am hardly ever at home, so I don't know how much help I can be-but don't hesitate to call me-even if it is just for a night walk!!)
