still here...

I'm in Mississippi for the next few weeks (and will be back and forth between Nashville and Hburg to see those that I love) and so far I have been moderately productive. I spent several hours the other day writing thank you notes (which I am NOT complaining about) and filling out financial report sheets. I have a long way to go but it's been really encouraging how supportive everyone has been.
However, as soon as I got home after New Year's I promptly got sick, so I haven't been as productive as I'd like. I'm reading a lot, and drinking a lot of hot chocolate. Life is rough.
Otherwise, I'm trying to sort out all of my paperwork for South Africa like my work VISA, even though I'm volunteering, and an international driver's license. Look out, world. My departure date is still up in the air too, because there's only one orientation session in March and it's 2 days after my parents are leaving to go visit my sister Rachel in the UK, which means the last couple of days I'm in the country I'd be here by myself! That would be pitiful! So we'll see what happens....

Sorry you don't feel good. I've got the weekends off this month, so we should do something when you're not visiting "those you love!" :-)
