Popping In

I signed up with Jen at Conversion Diary to do Seven Posts in Seven Days.

Of course, what should happen two days in?

I woke up this morning with very angry lungs. It's dry season and every one and his brother has been burning his fields and the dust is flying, and the mango trees are blooming, and it all adds up to me not being able to breathe.

If I take antihistamines before bed my breathing is better, but I feel like I have a head full of cotton for most of the day. Last night I decided to forgo the medicine and therefore I paid for it by wheezing and hacking this morning until I finally had to take the medicine anyway. 

Although I had my topic for a blog post all chosen out today, I kept nodding off and then the power went out this evening, which is not unusual but always annoying.

This week is our big build up to the annual, traditional ceremony: Mutomboko. Guests are arriving, volunteers are hard at work, and we have a doctor visiting who will be helping us to do Well Child exams for all the kids and also taking a closer look at a few of them. 

All this to say, I have plenty to keep me busy and no time to be sick. Please pray that I can find a solution for these allergies or ailments so I can do what I need to do.

See you tomorrow (and every day this week) if all goes well. It's nearly my blogiversary (4 years of blogging) and nearly 500 published posts. Whoo Hoo!

  1. Take care of yourself! Hope Mitumboko goes well. I've been sooo busy lately I can't seem to find time to blog. Seven posts in seven days, I could do that though. That goal is doable. Maybe I'll start tomorrow.


Come hang out with me. Your comments brighten my day and make me feel less lonely in my corner of the globe. .Wanna know more about my crazy life? Give a shout!
