About that house in Mexico...

In response to my friend, Yasmine, and any others of you who may be wondering:

Why would we want to buy a house in Mexico before Skagway? We intend to make Skagway/Mexico a permanent thing...we LOVE it here, AND in Skagway. However, Jared figured out the difference between our lifestyle in Skagway, and our lifestyle in Mexico:

On average, in a 6 month period in Skagway, we spend 600 hours at home.
On average, in a 4 1/2 month period in Mexico, we spent 1,800 hours at home.

In Skagway, our store IS our home...as we spend many more hours there. These stats do not include sleeping time, and if they did, we get even MORE sleep in Mexico!

So...which would we rather spend money on? Mexico! Hands down!
(P.S. A house is still not in the near-future)

When you buy your house does that mean we get to come for a visit? :)

Well then. Live the dream! Have it all! Get a place in both ... and maybe learn some Spanish. =)

By the way, be glad you're not here. We got MORE snow last night. And it's FREEZING.

Oh yes Im on my search to find out what the heck you all are doing living here. lol And now I see. What a great choice. Family time is always better. I wish I could say the same for us though. Most mexican companies have long work hours.
