We decided two things when we first arrived in Belize, 1 - no complaining, and 2 - no list making. Being business owners and living in a small town, we find that our lives generally revolve around lists. Lists of things to do for work. Lists of things to buy in town. Lists of things to not forget - we are starting to get to that age after all. Sometimes I go downstairs to get something and by time I'm down there I've completely forgotten what it was. Yes, we are getting older indeed. As for complaining, I think that comes to us all honestly but even more from my side since I am related to Carol after all!
Subsequently, I am not allowed to complain that we had only barely warm, not hot, water which didn't provide the best of shower experiences. Nor could I complain that I wasn't completely convinced that our dishes were really getting cleaned. Also the fact that our microwave didn't work at all was just another minor inconvenience, that one we can easily work around. I did have a little trouble when our clothes dryer was spraying black grease all over the laundry, lucky that happened on a load of towels that came with the place and other than one of Ian's t-shirts, none of my stuff got wrecked, so it's all good. We sticking to hang drying from here out since we didn't bring many clothes and there's not really anywhere to buy anything in this small fishing village.
We've done better than I thought about remembering what we need when we go to town although usually there is one or two things we forget. Yesterday after shopping in town and going out for lunch, as soon as we got back to the condo we remembered we needed coffee. Ian usually just grabs his bike and goes back for whatever we forget - so that works out well too.
You can imagine how happy I was when our caretaker showed up with an electrcian and fixed the microwave, but more importantly the hot water! Yes! After three weeks of coolish showers. I stand in this glorious hot liquid running down my body, lather rinse repeat, over and over until the entire tank of hot water is exhausted. I will always remember this as the best hot shower of my entire life.
