On the out

Today is Jeremy's official last day off work! We can't believe it.. (This was all written yesterday, but the power went out before I could post it)  He is really sad to leave all his employees & friends. I feel sorry for him, to lose all these people he has built relationships with over the last 9 years.. I think he will especially miss the people in his own office that he is with almost every day. Poor guy.. Maybe he will post about it later. Anyways not to be a downer because I'm positive we will come back to visit & I am sure he will stay in touch via the phone or good old facebook :) So Utah friends he may need a shoulder to cry on for a bit while he is missing his mexican homies..
So I wanted to try & document as much as I can while we are still here & before the craziness of the move & adjusting to a new job starts in. Plus I don't want to forget these last moments of our time here in San Felipe. As of yesterday the weather has been amazing at 75-80 degrees which really doesn't make us happy to leave when we hear it is snowing in Utah :( My poor husband is going to have a melt down in the cold weather..
Anyways our day as of yesterday went as follows:
The movers came & loaded up everything out of our garage this morning. It was amazing how quickly the 3 of them got everything loaded. 
I think they must play a lot of tetris to get everything packed & loaded in the right spot :)
Jer with the trailer. It was too bright for me to see this picture was so blurry.. wah wah
The whole packing up process has been pretty smooth since my husband is kinda a drill sergeant when it comes to getting tasks done & had me start packing weeks ago doing a little at a time. I have to thank him though because it really eased the stress of doing it all at one time.
That afternoon we at lunch outside at the Pavilian with our neighbor Rich. Man I am going to miss authentic chips & salsa. I am also really going to miss Jeremy not getting to come home & eat lunch with me everyday, which is something I definitely take for granted that he can just shoot over to the house if I need something or miss him.

After lunch & some work Jeremy let Diesel & I tag along with him golfing. Honestly this surprises even me, but I think the thing I may miss the most about leaving here is being able to ride around in the golf cart to spend time with Jeremy during the day. Lately I go out with him sometimes even 2-3 times a week. In the beginning I really resented Jeremy's golfing, & never wanted to have anything to do with it, but even though I don't enjoy to play myself I find that I love to ride around & spend time with him doing something he loves. Diesel loves it too. This may sound like animal cruelty but he loves to run in front of the golf cart & have us chase him. Weird I know.. Especially that he doesn't want to chase after behind the cart.. I think he wants to show the golf cart he is the alpha male, so we let him be the boss & don't run him over :) I will have to video it, because it's super funny.
That's Jeremy's office bldg in the background.
This is my favorite hole overlooking the water & town. I know the grass looks dead, but it just goes dormant over the winter & will start to green up now that spring/summer is here. (see these are the useful things I learn out golfing with Jer :))
That night all Jeremy's co workers planned a going away get together down at the Jollymon for pizza & beer. We thought that was kinda funny on the invite since we both don't drink, but they thought it was hilarious whenever we were taking a picture to try & put their beer in front of us so it would look like we were. Silly people. I don't think we will be going to be going to any sports bars with Jeremy's new job, that's for sure..
Starting at the left we have Jesus, Jeremy, myself, Lupita, Antonio, Richie, Ivan, Jolio, Ricardo, Bebo, Nacho, & Daniel.
I hung out for pizza but then left so Jeremy could really enjoying being with his friends without having to translate everything back & forth for me.
They got Jeremy to sing La Cucaracha after I had left. Check out the bottom left of this photo.. That's right apparently it's not a big deal to bring your kid to the bar! Things like this don't even phase us anymore. haha
 He had a wonderful time & was feeling really nostalgic when he came back home. He keeps saying how he has lived down here for a third of his life, which is pretty crazy. He will miss his San Felipe buddies tons but hopefully we will be back to visit soon.
