Still had lots of activity at our third Open House yesterday. The couple never called Linda back, so she emailed them and they replied saying the kids were not keen: lack of pool and longer walk to school was the reason given. I feel so deflated right now. I would say a little depressed. I’m starting to doubt this is going to happen. I have to remind myself that it’s only been 3 weeks, but I felt like this was going to be a quick sale. I’ve emailed my friend Keri, to set up a girls’ night so she can present the Arbonne skin care products. If this Costa Rica venture does not pan out, I have to start thinking about what I’m going to do for money. I just cannot stay at my job any longer or I’ll have a nervous breakdown. I feel on the edge already. Not sure how much more I can take. I’m trying to stay centered and positive. I need to think about something other than this house and Costa Rica and leaving. Maybe if I put my attention on something different and fun, my energy will shift, too.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
