How BAD is our Economy?

As many of you know I went to Guatemala for Thanksgiving. It was a LOOOOOONG trip, we left our house at 5:30 am drove to Miami, check in at the Airport, drove to my sister's house, gave a quick kiss to peanut, who was in her Dorothy costume and then my sis drove us back to the airport, where we were sent to wrong gate (25 minute walk in the wrong direction) then thanks to my asking around found the right gate! As I walked up to the gate something was a miss....everyone waiting at the gate looked like this....

I am not kidding, I was one of the only women on the whole flight. I couldn't stop thinking about it, it was so weird. When we landed in Guatemala, a mere 10 hours after I left my house in Orlando, there must have been 800 indigenous women waiting at the airport, then they all crammed in to the back of a pick up truck and drove away.

I was not happy, because my plan was to BEG the woman at the Airline counter to let me sit in First class knowing that after she heard my tragic tale of being stuck in the car with Hairy Thing #1 & Hairy Thing #2, AND The Man since 5:30 am there was no way she would not take pity on my soul....I was already envisioning myself sipping champagne and cackling like Cruella at the 3 men who claim to be related to me in the back of the cabin....yeah, right, flight sold out to a whole bunch of men in cowboy hats!?!

After speaking with some locals I solved the mystery! The illegal migrant workers are going back to Guatemala! There are no more jobs in the States so there is no more money to send home, so they all are packing up and moving home! Boy, it seems we won't need that GIANT wall across the border anymore! hahaha--


  1. Great post! I'm glad you arrived safely and still have your sense humor.

  2. For the record, I HATE the Miami airport with A PASSION! We always get lost.


I love you Darling, really! Thank you!
