Hey everyone! I'm in town for the weekend! Give me a call...I would love to hear from you!

I'll try to write a better post tomorrow, but for now...

I'm in town working on the Literacy Workshop that I will be having next Friday. I wrote down a list of things that I could help with in the schools, and most of the areas that could use help would be fixed if the students spoke or understood English better. I have a handout started, but I am hoping to find some information on line for people trying to improve literacy in developing countries. I found some great resources in a local library, but the ideas will be hard to implement without some of the supplies needed.

So I'm pretty excited for the workshop. If things go the way I hope, we can have kids learning to read in the next few weeks!!

My mouse. I put rocks over the holes and haven't found any mouse poop in about a week!! Sometimes I hear them under my floor, but I can handle that!

I am down to my last 2 or 3 pairs of underwear, so I decided to do laundry yesterday. It was a beautiful day, so I thought my clothes would dry on the line in no time. I spent an hour washing my clothes by hand...I'm still not sure if they are clean! The water that I use is rain water, so there is some mosquito larvae, dead bees, and other funk in the water. My clothes aren't too dirty, but I'm hoping I got the sweat out of them!! Anyway, I thought the day would stay nice and my clothes would dry...an hour later it started to storm! I brought all of my clothes inside and layed them over anything I could find in my house. When I got up this morning, my clothes were still pretty wet. I'm hoping they will be dry and not mildewy on Sunday!

Well that's all I have for now! Hope to hear from some of you soon!!!

P.S. I haven't been able to get on facebook. I'm reading the messages through g-mail, but can't respond or look at them on facebook! I'll try again tomorrow!!

I always forget about the whole time difference thing...I go to call you, check the time on here right before I do it and its like 1am or 4am! I think if I try it when its early morning here, it will be a decent normal time there! So hopefully you will still have service by the time I'm able to call you! ha talk to you soon! MISS YOU!
