in 30 seconds or less...

I've been away from site. Still am. ReConnect was wonderful. This week been hanging out in omaruru with a couple of other PCVs letting my foot heal. More on that at another time. I'm fine! Next week (starting this coming Monday) i'm gonna take some vacation time to visit the North. I'm going to Opuwo & white water rafting w some other PCVs. by the time i get back to site i'll have been gone a month! whew! so when i get back i'll give a huge update on everything. I've been having a blast, and it's nice to get away from site for a little while...and from work. Dealing w hiv/aids every day takes its toll on you. Anyways, yes i'm still alive & doing great. See you all soon. wish you were here :)

Hope you have/had fun up North. Hopefully you can share some pictures of the travels too? ;)

Glad to hear that ReConnect and the break from the work has done well for you. I can totally understand the need to "get away" from that type of work/sad atmosphere once and awhile. Glad you're able to.

And what's with the hurt foot deal? I look forward to hearing that story. Is it from putting your boot up people's arses in order to get everyone working together? Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, right? ;)

hi Grizz :) Nice to see you are still a fan of the journal! Been thinking of you, been meaning to email you or drop you a line. but been really busy over the last 4 weeks & net time has been short. my foot is ok now. I didn't break it. I just sprained it really bad. It got huge & bruised in all sorts of pretty colors. lol.. Couldn't walk on it for a few days but i'm ok now. I was taking a short jump off a rock while we were at Recon. (in the mountains) and my foot missed and went the other way.

I hope all's well. i took tons of pics of course but i'll have to see when i can go about uploading them. 1 1/2 year left :) Today is a day when I'm struggling and questioning things... and in a very small way wishing i was back at the life i lived at home, which is why there will be no journal today & i'm gonna lay low on the net. hugs and love. Thanks for checking in w me Grizz.

Indeed, still a fan of the journal. I am very interested in hearing about the work you're doing over there.... as I've mentioned before partly because I'm living vicariously through you by doing so.

Glad to hear that the foot is better. I'm sure that sucked a rather large monkey nut at the time. If that's your worst battle scar you get, that's good. ;)

I look forward to seeing your pics too!

Have yourself one of those "magical warm sun on your face, mind drifting" amazing days today. Peace.

Hey girl,
What's up? I hope you are doing well and I want you to know I really miss our weekly talks. This community outreach stuff is crazy and just when you think it can't get harder, it does. Anyways I can't wait to catch up with you at Swakup and maybe even hang out a couple of days afterwards. See you in 2 days!

Much love
-Rute
