Not always greener

While I agree that it's nice having someone to prepare meals, clean, and launder for me, all is not as it may seem. Some things to consider:
  1. I flush the toilet with a bucket.
  2. I bathe everyday in cold water.
  3. I am slowly being eaten alive by some unseen, unknown creature.
  4. I have been sick as a dog for the past 4 days in an attempt to adjust to the major food change.
  5. I fear the malaria medicine I am taking is giving me nightmares.
I am not looking for pity, by all means, just providing a reality check. Sometimes, there really is no place like home.


  1. I don't think I could handle that. Any of that. You are a far stronger woman than I will ever be!
