a brief history


Did you miss me?

Hope so.

Life has been rather hectic this last month or so. It's been a blur of paperwork, activity, running from one place to another, taking a vacation, losing a beloved pet, near heart attacks caused by Peace Corps medical office and finally, a bit of relief.

I spent the first three weeks of August tutoring 3-4 times per week and running from one medical appointment to another. I finally got all medical paperwork sent off on the 22nd, just in time for my vacation the following week. After a great week of fishing and relaxing in my hammock, it was back for more paperwork for PC medical and tutoring. I also had to make the most difficult decision of my life on Monday, September 4. My kitty, Watson, wasn't doing so well and I decided it was time to put him down. I never want to make that decision again. There is nothing worse than feeling like you've killed your most faithful friend. There will be a Watson shaped hole in my heart forever.

To heap more on my already overflowing plate, the PC called on Monday, the 11th, leaving a message to call them. I called, 12 times over the next 4 days, until I finally reached the nurse on Friday. They needed a statement from me saying that the tumor I had removed in 1991 was non-cancerous since my dr's office failed to put that in the report. Thankfully a fax would suffice and I got it off right away. I now have medical clearance for PC service!!

So this week, I'm just waiting for my invite. As soon as I know where I'm going, I'll let you know. Pray it comes quickly, both to help me get things done and just for sanity. There is so much I can't do until I have that letter in hand. Like most of the rest of my life :) (or at least the next two and a half years of it!).

Well, that's me. Leave a comment and let me know what you've been doing lately.
