We had fish tacos and chocolate cake for dinner, both of which took all day to prepare and neither of which worked out quite right. As many of you already know, birthdays are dangerous events for me-- too much anxiety, expectations, inevitable disappointment. Several times today I reminded myself that it's not that big of a deal to be born and that today didn't have to be the best day of the year. I was successful in avoiding a melt-down, which felt like an accomplishment. Too bad it's taken 27 years. Anyway, all that to say that today I felt the "sacrifice" of living here in a small way. The only way to eat tasty food on your birthday in Puerto Supe is to make it yourself. Oh, for Cabo Fish Taco!
The real joy of the day was re-arranging my office (partially inspired by birthday office supplies from Tim). I mean that. Planning and organizing are some of my highest delights, and I am indeed delighted with my new office set up. Maybe someday I'll get some photos of the house up here. It's looking good.
