I guess I'm just a bit bored before leaving for Costa Rica on June 4. It has been like waiting to starting one's life a new. I haven't worked in like 7 months or done much of anything, really, except plan for this new life. So it'll be great to get started in a new land, a new business and with new friends (not that I'll ever forget the old ones). Those friends are:
David (2 of 'em!)
Even though I'll be about 2500 miles away from my adopted home of Washington, DC (for the last 15 years), thanks to email, cell phones and so on, I'll keep in touch with everyone I'm sure!
I have had quite the outpouring of support for this venture too. Former co-workers and bosses, friends, relatives, and many others. I've even made quite a few business connections as a result of this new "Bed & Breakfast" venture so I'm not so concerned about getting people to it. Sure, it'll be a struggle at first, but I'm buying an existing business and that'll be exciting but I'll be able to make it my own--fix it up, add my touches, market it differently, and just make a great place to visit!
Speaking of visits, I cannnot wait until some of my friends visit. It appears I have friends coming down in June, August, November and December so that'll be awesome!
Oh, I need practice riding horses. I did a few times years ago but since I'll own 2 horses along with the B&B I need to get good at. I have this vision of my friends showing up and there I am on Gringo or Amigo, the master of my little Central American kingdom welcoming them to "Angel Valley B&B!" That'll be sweet!
I also envision just relaxing and enjoying a slower pace of life--and living a healthier life. I'm not in top condition and that'll need to change. I AM taking the right steps now but I plan to be much more active than I have been here living on the "dole" in Washington for the last 7 months. If I can make my friends envious by doing the following:
1. Getting slimmer and in better shape physically and health-wise;
2. Making enough money to live relatively well;
3. Relaxing and taking vacations whenever I choose; and
4. Making my way for the remainder of my life in my OWN way--
then I know I'll have accomplished a lot and I'll be satisfied.
Well, enough for now.
