But I really enjoyed last night and maybe this year I will go out again when New Year's Eve rolls around, IF I am still here, in Ajijic and still alive. Part of our conversation last night was about friends who had died since coming down here. In our age group, that can be expected.
And we talked about our goals for this coming year. Mine included getting my knee healed, swimming, going out at night, inviting friends to my house, and being more social. I have become too reclusive since hurting my knee. Not having a car makes it difficult to get around with a hurt knee. But I am hoping the swimming will heal it.
We also talked about all the changes we have seen in Ajijic in the past few years, not always for the better. Too crowded, prices going up. But this is also expected for a beautiful retirement area like Ajijic. I feel lucky to have found such a great place to live. I will never forget all the encouragement from readers during that hard time after I fell down the stairs, was in bed, with nowhere to go..... I didn't believe that a better place was in store for me. I must learn to have more faith...... People kept writing to me that something better would show up. Their faith kept me going when I had none. This blog has been a blessing for me in that way. To my extended family out there in cyberspace--Thank you. And I wish you all a wonderful coming year.
