Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

the cookie is a crumblin'

Well, more bad news fly my way this morning. Grandma F. fell at the office and broke her right hip. She's in St. Rita's in Lima, OH and the surgery should be Thursday. I'm not sure what the doctor is going to do, but I'm hoping for the best. I don't know where she is going to convalesce, but I don't think it'll be at home. Keep her in your prayers, everyone. This is the same grandma that just lost her son last week, so she's not doing the best this month.

I think that my cookie consumption is never going to level out at this rate, let alone go back down. Ugh.

On a happier note, so that you might actually want to visit here again, 58 fresh-faced Peace Corps Trainees flew into Dhaka yesterday. There was a meet and greet at the office last evening and I caught up with older Volunteers and met the newbies. They are so young! And not jaded in the least. Give them time and experience and they will be!

Take care folks and send some good news if you got some to spare!!!
