I don’t know how it got in there. Up until yesterday I had my spending money hid in different pockets of my different suitcases, so it probably just fell out. I finally just decided to put it all in my purse. Knowing me, I’d probably forget where I put it when it came to my last weeks here and I needed spending money.
Yesterday I did my laundry for the first time. I bought detergent at the local store, the kids were fascinated and all wanted to help. I was somewhat frustrated because I didn’t want help, seeing as I had undergarments I’d be washing. For the first time, I truly thought in a negative sense…”What have I gotten myself into!?” The feelings were washed away as quickly as the dirt in my skirt…though a timeout would be still be nice. I have always really, really appreciated my alone time, and here there is zilch of it. Jesus knew I was longing for community, but dang…when it rains, it pours!!!
Today was more of the same. Making worksheets, working on worksheets, eating, buying water, more eating. And of course, sana manu…my favorite time of the day.
There’s more I could write, and I probably will later. But for now, this is all you get. And I’m on my third book of this trip. Finished: In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day and Winesburg, Ohio (thank you, Kira, it was an excellent book). Started: The Great Divorce.
Oh, and some photos of course.
Where I take my (almost) daily sponge baths. I used to love sponge baths as a kid, I hated sitting in a tub…if only I could find my inner child and love them again. Haha…
I love you and I miss you, but it’s bedtime. Sula balloon gee.
