If only I would have known then, what I know now!

* I wouldn't have bought a Walker Bay Genesis Dingy.
* We wouldn't have bought our Pearson that needed everything done to it just because it was "cheap" (there is no such thing as a cheap boat that needs a lot of work to make it cruise ready)
* We would have put the kids into local Mexican schools our first year in Mexico.
* and we would not have stored the entire contents of our house in a cargo container!

Out of all the things we would have done differently, none of them is causing me as much pain as our decision to store the entire contents of our house in a cargo container. It all made sense at the time because a lot of the things we couldn't imagine living without, but after a few years of living without them, we now don't want them! So every time we make a trip to Bakersfield a few hours are spent digging through the stuff and organizing it into piles to give away, piles for a yard sale, and piles to throw away! The dance goes something like this: I put something in the trash pile and Lori moves it to the yard sale pile. I put something in the yard sale pile and Lori takes it and puts it in the giveaway pile. So far we are doing a good job of rearranging our piles but they are not really getting any smaller!
