Traveling passion

When travelling is your thing... you can never have enough... The world is just too big! Haha but ok, I'll narrow it down to my favorite destinations which are Asia and Europe, still too big and full of wonders.

That's the thought I've had ever since I came back from Japan some months ago. The trip it was awesome, I think I could've make some things better but still it was great... but as I came back I felt like I didn't belong back here... which is not right since everything I have and own is back here in Mexico, but still the feeling was there. As time passes one begins to move on and fall again into our routines, waiting for the next time the opportunity and the circumstances will be just right to do it again and feel the freedom of traveling.

Why is it so difficult to do it often... well, I actually do have the answer to that, I don't have enough money to do it often; but in reality I think is a good situation to be in, because I know that if travelling was…

I think one of my biggest challenges everyday, well no, every morning is waking up my little niece (3-4 year old) strongly enough for her to wake up, but nice enough that she doesn't wake up crying that she wants to continue sleeping...

Is so difficult, I can't get the hang of it... or maybe everybody has this kind of issues but doesn't say anything; I wouldn't know.

Anyway, every day is a strugle and it is not the same everyday, one day she wakes up nice and happy but throws a tantrum because she doesn't want to change from her pijamas... or another day, I wake her up and she began crying because she doesn't want to wake up at all...

So everyday is a new kind of bargain, negotiation, manipulation, extorsion hahaha that I have to apply in order for her to wake up and do what I want her to do...

Maybe there is no formula for this... I've no idea...

For starters, one of the main reasons that she doesn't want to wake up, and I think is in part my fault, is that…

So, today I finally decided to wash my car, after weeks of procrastination, because I just couldn't bear seeing it as dirty as it was. It has been a very weird rainy season here in my city. And since I decided I was NOT going to take it to a car wash I told my niece (3 almost 4 years old) to help me wash it, since he loves anything related to getting dirty and wet; so this was perfect!
We started by rubbing off the dirt with water, I wasn't going to be very thorough with the wash since it's still rainy season and probably tomorrow will rain again; so I decided that new dirt in the clean car is better than dirt on dirt on dirt... So we started, and to encourage my niece I started teasing her.
Me: come on!  Niece: I'm cleaning this door! Me: I'll clean faster than you! And I'll win! Niece: No! We are going to win together!  Me: ...... [No words]
It was teamwork, and I tried to make it a competition between the two of us... Haha something so simple and so powerful, t…
