Mostly about my Wednesday- GOOOOODIES FROM HOME!!!

Wednesday 9/10

Today we got to Entrena and we have nothing to do again. There were some PCVs to talk about what it’s like to be a volunteer because, we’re all just measly trainees now you know- so it’s nice to hear. They served us lunch which was waaaay better than spaghetti so I was happy. Plus, one of the girls here has a Dona who makes her 2 pancakes for breakfast each day but she can only eat one. She doesn’t want to hurt her feelings so she had the other with her. I ate it and it was good, who needs syrup? Not me.

The poor girl who had dengue got out of the hospital yesterday. She’s back here with us all so we’re pretty psyched. Poor chick, Dengue sucks. Right now people are gathered around her to take pictures of her legs because the end of Dengue is marked with a bad rash and she has it on her legs. It’s pretty cool looking actually. Sorry, I didn’t bring my camera today:)

I got my test back and was extremely relieved to find I passed!!! I got an 85% which was enough for me to be happy!!! So, I don’t have to worry about retaking the test, whew!

Well, today has consisted of pretty much nothing. I wrote a loooooong blog for yesterday so I don’t have much to say. I think my idea of eating what I want helped cure me because this time yesterday I was miserable. They’re passing out the mail now, I’m hoping I got something!!! The suspense I killing me!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!! I GOT MAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rach, you’re going to be mad… my first package was from Dad. Thanks so much for the candle, how did you know my room stunk?!? And great thinking to send me matches and a lighter too!! Thanks so much!!!

WOW!! I got TWO packages!!! Rach, thanks for the slippers!!!!!!!!!!! And it’s amazing you sent me wipes because I spilled juice all over and haven’t been able to get the stickiness away!!! Thanks sooo much!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

Love you guys!!

Oh Betsy: You are sounding a little home sick now. It will get better the longer you're there. Some of it is the change in environment, some of it is the illness and some of it is the boredom. It's such a different world. Not to mention the different culture and the food and everything else. I have been planning to send you some pics from the going away party, just wasnt sure where to send them because of your possible moving. So I was holding off, but now I think I'll just send things along and pray you get them. Sounds like Rach and your dad got some things thru so I am going to try as well. Love you and miss you and am still thinking of a trip out that way (but not till after hurricane season). Take care.

Betsy--I had a piece of peanut butter toast in your honor this morning! It's one of my favorite
breakfasts :) I hoping you're
feeling better. By the way, when my stomach is upset, peanut butter almost always helps me feel better.
Whatever works...Take care and God bless!
