The park is... not coming along quickly

I blame myself for this, even though I know that's patently ridiculous. But it seems as though Gran Parque La Plancha has stalled a bit.

Hopefully this is a temporary stall, but it seems just my luck that I would come in, buy a property with the hopes of building and being close to this wonderful park. Hoping to one day cut through it to get to Calle 47 on the west side of the park where so many new restaurants are. And then it would stall and never happen. Or never happen in my lifetime. I'll die and a year later the park will be built and be even more fabulous than anyone could have imagined.

But I'm just being silly, of course. I mean, there's always the chance a project doesn't reach completion. In Mexico, in the United States. Anywhere, really. I'm still happy with the land, even if I never move an inch of soil on it. It was an exciting experience and some good lessons learned and just a pleasure having any small connection with Mérida.

In other news, I was offered a new job, then my current job offered me more money to stay. And even though I don't know how stable my current job is, it was really hard to turn down more money. Especially when I wasn't sure I would love the work at the new job.

Angie had her first official wedding under her new business. That was exciting for us both. We had a lot of fun and we're hoping to get that business off the ground. She has another wedding in a few weeks, then a wedding show in October and another wedding after that. Hopefully we can get her more weddings booked next year. It's always hard when you don't have a lot of wedding experience to find people to trust you with their big day. Baby steps, but she did great.

And that's really all I have for now. Just busy with regular boring life things. I probably need to share more of what I'm watching or reading about Mérida. I am still looking at houses for sale. Not to buy, just to see what's out there because I love looking. I could probably share some of that in the meantime.

But yeah, until then.
