It’s 2:33 p.m. on Wednesday, January 12th. Another day, another mailbox sans Invitation. I had a session with my Life Coach yesterday and she invited me to be present with the “not knowing.” I told her I’d give it a try. I suppose I’m okay with it when I stay out of my head. But when I’m in my head? I have a million frickin things on my mind that I need to do before I leave the frickin country 😦
So, I have started to pack. Not my suitcase or backpack or carton…or whatever it is you pack your things in when you are moving to a foreign country for 27 months. I’ve started creating my “piles.”
My first pile is my Peace Corps Staging Area. I’ve started throwing things in a basket that I plan to take with me. Right now, it is heavy on over-the-counter medications and remedies. Rite Aid had a sale on Anti-diarrheal so I stocked up. I’ve heard from other volunteers that you can never have too much anti-diarrheal 😦
I am soliciting thoughts and ideas on what to pack from anyone who has something to offer. I especially welcome input from past, current or future Peace Corps Volunteers.
Thanks for letting me vent…I feel better already 🙂
