I Accomplished Another Thing Today!

Got another part of my list done today. The guys came to clean the three carpets, living room furniture and the dining room chairs. They took everything outside on the patio so when they were done it would dry. They finished around noon and said things should be ready to bring in around 4 p.m. I went into town to send my honorarios to the publisher. Before I left, even though it was before 2 p.m., I just didn't like the idea of leaving everything outside (thinking about the cats, etc.). I put my butt to work and got everything back in order before leaving. When I returned home at 3 p.m. I was caught in the middle of a downpour that hasn't stopped and it is now 7 p.m. I called Juan and he says it is dry as a bone in Monterrey. Imagine that, 20 kms away and not a drop of rain. I bet the pool filled at least 4 cms in this time.
Tomorrow they start work on the road and I am really excited about that. Also, if it isn't raining, a construction worker will come to fix some cracks in the backyard wall so that I can paint. More on that later.
The cleaning today cost 900 pesos or $68 (u.s.).
There's lots of talk on the about the cost of rving in Mexico. I think it runs the gamut. Just like fulltimers in the U.S., from 500 dollars to 5000 dollars a month. Our expenses are fixed and very low including insurance for all things, home, cars, rv, and medical. I don't think I could afford to return to the U.S.
