So there is a lot going on right now.
Work is crazy and leaves me no freetime. I don't even know what I am doing. You mention a word like Microcredit and everyone thinks you are an expert and can help them start small businesses! I don't have a clue! The rainy season is starting so I am trying to prepare them (or make them start thinking in preparing) for the worst. but of course they don't do anythign in advance. This rainy season is suppose to be 25% worse than last year and last year we had over 1000 people who were living in schools because their houses were flooded. People lost crops and are just starting to get back to normal and now the rain is here again. PLUS when the schools are occupied by people displaced from their homes school can't take place! So there is a definite need to plan and prepare for this. But no... the three day seminar to help them prepare which I am going to is too long for anyone else to go to. UGH!
Also its that time of the year when old Munis are leaving So sad!...the new ones are coming and I have to help plan and participate in parts of their training. We are all excited they are coming but that means that my group has been here a year already and we only have a little over a year left!! How sad!
So I am feeling so many emotions all at once. I am exhausted.(well maybe thats cuz i was partying to much this weekend?) Thank god for my mini vacation back to the states in june! It can't come soon enough! However trips back home are also very stressful cuz of course EVERYONE wants to see you so you feel pulled in every direction and there is never enough time. But I am excited to eat!
Thank god it is hump day! This weekend I am just gonna stay in bed all day and read some books! Oh wait I can't... i have to work Saturday all day! And Sunday I will have to do laundry before the rain starts so my clothes will dry and head off to San Sal for that seminar. So forget it...no sleeping in!
