What I Did On Summer Break: Belize

My first grown-up vacation, spent without herding kids or worrying about them at all. Just me and the GuyFriend walking, driving, and biking our way around Belize for two weeks. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer vacation, especially amid the months of unemployment gloom. I’d paid for my flight months before and the Guy made sure it was a real vacation. He’s always the one to be credited for the lovely photos. Thank you. Gracias. Mesi.

Train Graffiti

I don’t know why I find it so appealing, but I do. This particular tag was on nearly every car.

Also…I really, really wanted to hop this train instead of waiting patiently to cross.

A New Hobby

The GuyFriend wandered into a pub over near his house for the first time a few weeks ago and found our new pastime: shooting pool. Last week the two of us went and both sucked miserably at the game. Back and forth we went, neither getting anything except the cue ball into the pocket for several turns. It would have been embarrassing except we were pretty equally bad. I won but only because he scratched at the 8-ball. So, really, he was the better player.

We’re supposed to go back later this week and I think it’s going to be a little less balanced–he’s been back to practice. No fair!
