"Ask not what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive...then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

My first week of work went well.  I was very excited to get started and hope I can get ramped up with information quickly so we can start moving forward.  

We are in our current house on a temporary basis and while it's a beautiful home it takes forever to get anywhere.  We're probably only 5 miles across the city but it takes 60-90 minutes of stop and go traffic to get to and from work.  Our poor driver takes almost as long to get here,  so to get us there by 8am means a very early morning for him.  Needless to say, transportation and housing options remain our biggest needs.  

All of the aid organizations work in office/camps 6 days a week so we're enjoying our day off by staying out of the car, catching up with each other and even had visions of a nap but we forgot about the chorus of dogs and roosters in the neighborhood.  Today must be a special day because another neighbor is also sharing a radio program with the rest of us.  When you're not busy/moving around the heat does tend to make you very drowsy so hopefully we'll be able to catch a few zzz's anyway!
