Everybody at home is doing okay. I talked to them yesterday and earlier today. They went on a campus visit to UIC and liked the place. They must have changed the place a lot since I went there for several painful trimesters.
I'm still working on my Swahili. I am making very slow progress, and sometimes I accidentally throw in some Greek. It is kind of too bad that I probably won't get to use it again.
My other personal goals are Quarterly Dates, New Job and Gold Award for the BSA district for which I'm the District Commissioner.
Working on my new job, well, I'm looking into applying to an on-line grad school. We'll see how we swing that. I'm thinking of something that could translate into work use.
I've tried to get in touch with the Tanzania Scout Association (TSA) with no success so far. I have been in communication with the Scouts back home and trying to do what I can to help them get along without me.
My computer broke down and my internet connection is non-existent during the work day. It's been a bit of a struggle, but I can Skype which is a great comfort, being able to see my lovelies at home.
