ETHIOPIA!!! Â Just like I thought. Â I will be serving as a Health Organization Development volunteer leaving on May 23rd. Â Ho man, there’s a lot to sink in… Â This is equal parts exciting, scary and releving all at once! Â I don’t really know what to do with myself right now. Â Part of me wants to kick back, relax with a nice beer and find a documentury about Ethiopia on Netflix. Â The other part of me wants to dive head first into the paperwork. Â I don’t know why, but I can’t stand having unfinished paperwork lying around. Â I like checking boxes, I guess? Â Craig is off at a soccer game, so no dancing around for joy with him, but it’s all good. Â There’s so much reading and research to do now! Â And I should probably find that packing list.
Actually, I’m more interested in heady stuff, I’ve got several weeks to think about packing, and can’t do anything about it right now, so I might as well do research. Â Wow. Â BIRTHPLACE OF COFFEE HERE I COME!!
Maybe in a week it’ll all sink in that I’m actually leaving…
Oh, and I sent my acceptance email. Â I actually found the Ethiopia Welcome Book online over the weekend and was reading it without knowing that I would be required to. Â So I get a head-start on all the stuff I need to read before accepting the invitation! Â Yay to that, too!
