A week of UPs!
-Cheered, danced, and celebrated with Kerry and a bunch of wild New Orleanians at the Hornets/Spurs playoff game 5. (Trombone-freakin'-Shorty was there! It was awesome!)
-Due to unexpected incident(s), had the pleasure of spending extra time at Olive Tree Village, which meant more fun with Kerry and the kittens.
-Enjoyed dinner with volunteers and village staff in Houma, LA.
-Visited all four of our active Volunteer Villages within 24 hours!
-Breakfast for Lunch with Virginia.
-Shared dinner with friends at a casino buffet. My FIRST since arriving on the coast! Why have I not done this before??? 3 hours of good conversation and tasty snow crab legs.
(Wonder why all my UPs involve food?)
A week of DOWNs!
-Learned that the Red Cross will be out of money for Katrina victims as of June 1. So many people still need help rebuilding!
-Extra time at Olive Tree Village wasn't all fun. Tough work and tough conversations. Extra bug bites from the motor home's bad screens/no AC problem.
-Communication struggles GALORE had me pulling out my hair.
-Realized that because I am always going to be a peace-maker (never a peace-keeper) I that means that I will often come across as a warring witch. Awesome.
-Endured an unsuccessful attempt at shopping for a dress to wear to my friend's wedding next weekend.
