This has really been a productive trip. The basic medical check ups were good, although I may have to make a quick trip back in a couple of months to finish up some procedures. We have been to WalMart, Walgreen's, and Home Depot. Coming up tomorrow is CVS, and yes, the Salvation Army Store.
We bought fans for the upstairs of the new house, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, and paint samples. Tomorrow we get the hot water heater. We bought razors, shampoo and conditioners, hair color, clothes, and as many other things we can't get in Honduras as possible. Throw in canning lids and rings, doggie treats, spices, OTC meds, napkins, and much, much more.
We have had a wonderful time with our children and the Grandbrat; we visited Macho Man's former boss, Don Armando; and my sister comes tomorrow. I had a chance to talk to my brother this morning. We had a very good lunch today in little Havana with the two girls. The only problem with Latin restaurants is they put too much food on the plate, and it is so good you clean your plate (Gro-o-o-o-an).
Tomorrow we are going to figure out what we need to ship and what we have to take in the plane. We definitely will ship more than we carry. We went by Rapido Cargo today, and they will send someone to pick the boxes at my daughter's house, ship them to Puerto Cortes, process them through Customs, and deliver them to our door in Trujillo, all for $.70/lb. How is that for service?
We have had five days filled with love. The companionship and family closeness has been inspiring. There has been no bad weather. We have had no accidents.
We are blessed.
