We're back from our week in Mazatlan. The weather was beautiful, and it was nice to get away. It was almost easier to take only a week instead of two. Since there's a kitchen, when we're there for two weeks, I feel as though I should cook and shop. For one week, we bought a little milk, juice, cereal and sodas and called it good. I'm exhausted, though. M and his roommate Z have called a delicate truce. M is still looking at other places to stay, but it's nice to know that he can hold it together for a few weeks in a situation that he is less than pleased with. He also has a student aid position as a receptionist - - that he has been hired for at school. It's not big money, but it will help, and he definitely needs the people skills that go along with it. Maybe he will find a friend that is easier to get along with... or a girl that will inspire him to better himself? And Oscar gained two more pounds. He's huge! Skinny, but so tall. He looks like a teenager! Other than that, we are exhausted. We got home last night about 1:00 AM. YAWN!
