When I left for Mexico one month ago, I had three goals. Tomorrow, I return to Ohio, and none of those goals have been accomplished.
I hoped to purchase the apartment that I rent, but I was not allowed to make the electronic transfer from my bank to the account of the owner. The payment will have to wait until I am back in Ohio. I planned to obtain my residency visa, but the lawyer / realtor who is handling the sale said he would take care of that. That process won't be complete for another week. I wanted to get a private mail service, but since I am going to have to return to Mexico in about a month, I decided to hold off on that. Nothing has been accomplished... and the heat wave that we have experienced down here certainly did not help my mood. It is not just here in Mexico that things are not going according to plan. The contractor that was going to do some repairs to my house in Ohio before I put it up for sale, has said that he is too busy.
The entire time frame for my permanent move to Mexico has been thrown off. I had hoped that this would be my last trip to Mexico before making the final move. But in about a month the owner of the apartment and I are going to have to coordinate and make another trip to Mexico to sign the papers. Then, I will have to return to Ohio to put my house up for sale... and hope that it will sell in a reasonable amount of time. I had hoped that I would be living in Mexico before the summer was over... now I am not so sure.
