Sometimes Life Is Like That

20 May


After a weeklong visit to Texas, we are home in Bacalar. Mother’s Day was spent with our youngest son and family. 


Lisa, son Dylan, step-mom Terry (our wife-in-law) and myself.

Lisa had a visit with her doctor at the VA (Veterans Administration). The results of medical tests performed in December were finally discussed. The bottom line is another visit needs to be scheduled, probably in August. Let’s not get into it.

We had a happy hour with Austin friends who came to hang out with us. I wish I had taken pictures, but unfortunately did not. It was lovely to visit with folks, some of which drove as much as an hour to see us.  Also a shout out to blog followers Laurie and Ryan who visited us in Austin. Good luck on your plans to move to Mexico.


We also saw the movie RBG which I highly recommend. I doubt it will ever come to our local theater in Chetumal so we took advantage of a free afternoon. GO SEE IT!

A most inspirational and uplifting movie.

We had a relaxing week and are extremely happy to be home in Bacalar. Visiting with family and friends is always fun.

Air travel really takes it out of us. This trip we had long layovers and late flights. It’s time to get swimming in preparation for the Laguna Bacalar open water maratón on June 16. I have been doing some serious slacking. (The Swim Across Laguna Bacalar).
This year is far busier than usual. Sometimes life is like that. Stay tuned and remember to check us out on Instagram at dos_tortas and Facebook @theadventuresofdostortas

    Mother’s Day is in March on this side of pond. Not sure why it’s different. The film sounds brilliant. We’ll look out for it.

      It’s different in Mexico too. I do hope RBG comes your way. Absolutely brilliant.

    It was great meeting you and Lisa during your visit to Austin! Thanks so much for being so generous with your time. Glad to hear you made it home safely to Bacalar.

    Wish I had known you were going to be in Austin as I would have loved to see you. Now that I am not working at the state, I have so much more time! Let me know next time you come in so we can meet up. Glad you are safely back home.

      Darn. I posted in on Facebook. Would have liked to see you too.

        I’m not on Facebook at all. Something I just don’t want to make time for. I see hubby waste hours on it. You will have to email me. Let me know if you and Lisa come back in August and we will have y’all over for dinner or meet somewhere.

        How sweet. FB can really suck people in. I do have a public page, @theadventuresofdostortas. You don’t have to have an account to see what we’re up to.


Hey hey what have you got to say!
