I'm here in Zambia. We've spent the past four and a half days at MCC headquarters, being oriented, getting over jet lag, and preparing to go to our various assignments. A, who's in the city, is being dropped off with her host family as I type, and the rest of us, all heading for Southern Province, leave tomorrow morning. I won't get to Macha until Friday, though, because the other two get dropped off first, so arriving tomorrow isn't feasible, considering travel times and the fact that we'll need to do a certain amount of set-up work in every place.

I mentioned on the other blog that I'll be cooking for myself. Setting up a household requires an incredible amount of stuff.

I have a new phone, too. It's the fanciest phone I've ever had, and it's going to drive me crazy. )

Long story short, I'm just really glad that I'll have a computer and access to the internet, and won't need to use my phone all that often.

Things are going pretty well, though.

I woke up at 1:30am and lay in bed for THREE HOURS trying to go back to sleep before finally giving up and turning the light on. And half an hour later, I still have no confidence that I might fall back asleep.

Not only would it have been easier three hours ago, before so many people walked on it, while, "I'm sorry, but I don't have a job either and can't afford to pay someone to do something I can do perfectly well myself," is a pretty good reason for not paying someone to shovel the walk, I think I like "It's done already" better. I don't need to actually give that excuse to the nice young man who shows up at the door, it just exists.

In my defense, it was still snowing until close to an hour ago.

It's cold. And my nose hurts. And I didn't get anything like enough sleep last night. And the internet is becoming deserted as everyone heads away for break. Which is a symptom of the greater problem that almost all of you are going home for Thanksgiving, and I'm not.

Okay, I'll stop whining now.
