Is it possible to cough your brains out? I’m starting to feel like it is. I was doing well yesterday, had a bunch of energy and took advantage of that in the morning and did some stuff around the house that I had been looking at for the last week. Then I crashed. I slept for about 3 hours straight in the afternoon. Dead sleep. It felt good considering I was up coughing for most of the night, not sleeping. The downside was that I woke up with a killer headache. I was pretty dozy for the rest of the afternoon and was back in bed around 6 and stayed there.
I’m up now, had a shower (it had been a couple days) and made breakfast. Now I’m just sitting here coughing and typing. It’s more of the annoying cough now though, not the “turn your throat inside out” like it was a couple days ago. Being sick in Haiti just feels so much worse than being sick back in Canada. I’m not sure why, it just does.
The mission is a hive of activity. The guys are still working on getting the posts built for our solar panels. I think they’re getting close to being done though. Chris has been chopping things down and cleaning things up. He’s trying to get one small storage area cleaned up so we can put all the bunk beds and stuff from the dorms in there, and then knock the dorms down. We want to start that in the next week or so I think so that we can get started on the rebuild faster.
This weekend is a holiday – Mardi Gras or Carnivale as they call it here, on Tuesday. But, the party goes all weekend. This means all of our neighbors will be out so we’ll have people to visit with, and Tuesday at least is a day off work, maybe Monday too. Wahoo! I love days off work.
That’s all the excitement there is here. Hope you’re having a good week so far.
