Yes. You read that right.
I’ve tagged along my husband’s business trip.
I’ve got some explaining to do.
It was a bit of a spontaneous tag-along, as I only found out about, and accepted the offer to come about a week ago.
(Uh, who would pass up the opportunity for a free trip to South America? And in my case, for the first time?)
I do owe you all some stories. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s been happening with me:
- I have a new boss and while I was apprehensive about him at first, the past four weeks of reporting to him have been…pretty good. I guess I just really loved my old boss. But this new one just may turn out to be loveable too…..in his own way.
2. My “countdown” thing on the right hand side of my blog says: “The Big Day is Here.” And well, is it? Not really. But I’m in a place where I would not have imagined I would have been when I set the counter, about 18 months ago. I’m still enjoying my job and with the change of boss, the position may go in a direction that I just may end up liking. It’s still early, but let’s see what the next few months bring.
3. Lima, Peru. I’ve been here 2 days and I’ve learned so much about this interesting city, its sites and its history. (And the food? Wow!) But more importantly, I’ve had some time to get to know myself a little better. (The kids are at home with my awesome parents) Do I want to continue with how I’ve been living my life so far? Am I really happy? Is it time for new adventures? Questions that will take some time to figure out, but ones that I am working on.
So that’s it, sort of. I’m proud to say that I’m playing a small part in the amazing project my husband is working on. (www.cuddleandkind.com) If you click on the link, you’ll have a better idea of what we’re doing here in Lima.
I’ll be sure to post more soon.
On another note, was it only me who forgot that Paddington Bear was originally from Peru? How did I forget that?
Here’s me and a statue of “The Pads” in Miraflores, Lima, Peru. We’re hanging out in the Larcomar Mall Park along the coast.
Thanks for bearing with me, friends. I’m (literally) all over the map.
