Romans 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
Today we got up and we were going to take the bus to Nan. It was a holiday today so there was no school. David’s hives continue to get better and while they are still there, there have faded quite a bit. I am holding out hope that the antibiotics seem to be working. As for me, I don’t feel too bad, but my stomach is just not tolerating any food, but in Thai culture it is very rude to not eat when food has been prepared for you, so I am powering through and loving all the food even though it is destroying my stomach!
We wanted to travel to Nan with the hope of finding some new IPods for the kids (their music players have become obsolete and we can’t download any music on them), but we had no luck. Instead we were able to eat some pizza (which the kids loved just being able to have just plain old cheese pizza) and picked up some items to make Wat and his mom a Mexican dinner.
Now we were not able to get some of the necessary items to make an authentic Mexican dinner, but we are going to do the best we can with what we have, especially since Wat specifically asked for a Mexican dinner. So we gathered some chicken, onions, seasonings, cream cheese, sour cream, and shredded cheese. Some things that we were not able to find included tortillas, green chilies, jalapeños, pinto or black beans, tortilla chips, bell peppers. We decided that we would attempt to make some homemade tortillas out of the rice flour that he had at his house and hope for the best.
However, by the time we got home from Nan it was too late to start dinner. Timing was not on our side, so we opted to make dinner tomorrow night. Tonight was just a quick dinner of homemade chicken nuggets and French Fries that Nana (the housekeeper) made for the kids. It was amazing and a nice treat for the kids.
I apologize for the lack of pictures…we just haven’t done anything worthwhile of pictures in the last few days, as we have just been trying to recover.
