New Year 2010!


HAPPY NEW YEAR—2010!


Well today is January 2 and so far it has been uneventful New Year. We closed out-patients on NY Eve at 1 p.m. and finally got to go home about 2 p.m. for the day. I spent the rest of the day taking down Christmas decorations (5 big plastic bins) and my tree—by 6 p.m. 5 guys came to carry it and my tree off to my store room. As I get older is sure is nice to have help in carrying those heavy boxes!
At 7:00 p.m. we started movie night at the church. They watched 9 to 5 and then a Jet Lee Kung-Fu which was the hit with everyone. The church was packed and people even looking in the windows! We had a church service from 11-12 to ring in the New Year and at 12 they beat the church bell and blew the horn on the truck! It was nice to see the community come to some family time instead of going to the township and drinking to bring in another year!
Friday I took the day off and Lori went to the hospital and I continued to take down decorations and clean my house. I was sweating so much I was in out of the pool to keep cool! One exciting thing is since our 9 days of no electricity, since it came back on the 30th at 9 p.m. it hasn’t gone off—62 hours straight and counting! Maybe they forgot us! Ha!
Today I am at the hospital and Lori is enjoying a day off. Have a few patients I discharged and some new emergencies to see, but not so busy—should be out of here by 1 p.m.!
Major went to his village yesterday and he checked on my field (1 acre of maize) and the maize is doing well! We are thankful that crops are doing well so far!
One unpleasant start to the New Year—I started it with a urinary tract infection—so on antibiotics and hoping it will get better!
Take care and all the best for a good start to the new year for you! Love, Kathy
