Destination

Our blog finally has a title! Took forever to find a meaningful one. Explanation: It all starts with Laura Pausini and her remake of a song of the same name. It's in Italian, and, like all her songs, is totally moving. Ultimately, the song is about a voyage without boundaries, destination Paradise.

We're on a voyage right now. We travel through cities/countries searching for the place where we will finally belong and be happy, our own paradise. And if we never find it on Earth, we know our ultimate Paradise awaits in heaven.

So that's our blog title. As far as our current status in our voyage, things have returned to their crazy pace full of lesson plans, 7 a.m. duty extracting arriving students from their cars, and the usual exhaustion. Carlos is currently working from about 10 am - 6 pm downtown (about 20-30 minute commute in the Cheyenne), teaching English. However, in late February he will transfer to the location a few minutes from our house, where he will pick up a schedule almost identical to mine! We look forward to that.

We want to thank everyone for the fabulous Christmas gifts. The coffee is in use daily, along with the creamers. Carlos was beside himself when I retrieved those from the suitcase. They help us face each morning with something to look forward to. The cinnamon-flavored stuff is a taste of home for Carlos (and me, obviously). And we have put the dozens of pairs of socks to good use. Thank you again to everyone who contributed to our happiness!!!

I leave you with the song that inspired the blog title.

that's great news! I'm all for working closer to home. You'll find that with the elimination of a long commute the stress levels go way down!
