My mom is here!!! My mom is here!!! This is my first experience having a family member visit us while we have been so far away from home. As you can probably tell I am a
little excited ecstatic that she is here. It has been like a hypnagogic hallucination (now that’s a phrase I will be using more often…Thanks thesaurus!) being able to visit with her in person, well when I get my five minute turn at least. Z has not let Nana out of her sight, in fact this morning I told Z, “I love you” and Z responded, “Nana”. Hilarious!
On another note, I wrote a post recently about promises to myself. One of them was to remain positive even when a situation makes me want to throw in the towel, throw up my hands in despair, or lay on the floor and throw a huge tantrum. Hmmm… I will think of other clichés to use later, I know there must be some more. This week I have encountered many opportunities (like how I phrase that? So positive right?) to put my gumption to the test. I am going to write more about that on Wednesday, but if you follow And Three To Go avidly (who wouldn’t, am I right?!) then you probably noticed that I did not do my usual post this past Friday. When we arrived back in Hua Hin from picking my mom up in Bangkok, a huge storm left floods and fallen trees in its wake. We came home to our villa with no water or electricity. We roughed it for two days and one very hot night before the power came back on. We are still without water, which has been giving us so many more excuses to hop in the pool. I am so thankful that we have a pool, it has been our bath, our reservoir and a wonderful way to cool off. See, these tests to determine my fortitude are nothing (just kidding…please no more tests!!).
Last Wednesday, I asked you what you would like to see and read about on And Three To Go, and I received some great ideas and suggestions… Thank you all for your help! Okay, enough of hearing about my week, I want you to see it too! Here are this weeks pictures…
Some signs that I saw along the road that appealed to me for some reason… I think it was probably the added tire sign, adds some real flavor to the advertising opportunity.
Sorry to all the men reading, but the fact that they have maxi pads out for you to feel and see before you buy them makes me laugh.
This blew my mind when I first saw it in our travels years ago… Eggs are not refrigerated anywhere that we have been except in America. I wonder why we Americans need to be different? (That’s a rhetorical questions..haha)
The flood as we drove home from Bangkok, quite the adventure! I felt especially bad for the scooter drivers, but everyone seemed to have a good attitude about the river that used to be the road.
Zoë really wanted her picture taken with this guy. He was the welcoming committee at the Tokiya restaurant in a mall in Bangkok.
Nana and Zoë on their first day together! They haven’t been separated since.
80’s Flashback! Amway is alive and well in Thailand, except you don’t get invited to dinner with friends so they can give you their pitch… Here you can just go to the Amway store. Nice!
There are even knock-off trucks in Thailand. Here is an “Isusu” work truck.
If you all have something that you would like to see here in Thailand, let me know and I will try to include it next time! Thanks again for following along on our trip!
I like Thailand. It’s one of our favorite holiday country! Look fwd to your Wed post!
Thanks! It is one of our favorites too!
Ahhhhh, so cool to see Tammy there!!! What smiles!!!
Oh man, what a storm, what adventure.
Loved all the pictures of what life is like there. That is what interests me all those things the locals take for granted and yet are so new to us.
Thank you, and well done on getting through the adventurous times.
Thanks Auntie! ❤
Just like camping – but with a pool 😉 Love your use of the word “opportunities” and yes… hypnogogic. I will try and use it in a sentence this week. Nice!
Thanks B! Isn’t it funny how when you set a personal goal, everything in the world happens to break your resolve? Haha
