I need to evaluate. I have been evaluating for my whole time here in Nicaragua. Thinking. Thinking too much, really. But now that all of my comrades have gone home and just Lenin and I are left, I have been thinking a lot. Trying to imagine what it will be like when we get there. Much of our future life is up in the air.
There are a few things I do know.
I know that we will live on Spencer Creek Rd for the first couple of years at least.
I know that I want my student loans paid off by Christmas next year.
I know I want to replant the garden and make the casita ours and I am soooo excited for a washer and dryer.
I know I want to immediately start working out. Whether that means walking or running the steps at Haha Tonka or biking or like taking pilates or aerobics or another class.
I know I want us to eat locally grown and raised food and that packaged foods will be kept at a minimum, though I realize this will be harder in the winter.
I know I want to eventually start my own business.
I do know that Lenin and I work well at gathering things “like ants” which means a little by little.
I do know we both like to save money and count what money we have under the proverbial mattress.
I know I want to learn more about coffee. If that means working at Starbucks, so be it. Although, the importation of coffee and the details around getting a fair price to the coffee growers around the world is much more interesting than working behind the counter at Starbucks.
