Travel Anxiety

Getting bills paid and preparing to go

32 °C

Yesterday was a bit tough. I had spent my entire Friday resting up from such a long two weeks without a break...and giving my body time to absorb the vaccines so I had to spend the whole of Saturday finishing up my preparations. I began with a visit to the bank to be sure my accounts were settled and paid all my bills. Then I picked up USD to take with me for changing to Ugandan Shillings. Finally I went home to pack the donated items and prepare my apt. for my absence. I paid for 5kgs extra baggage online but was sad that I couldn't afford to takeall of the items donated this time around...hopefully next time I'll be better prepared.

Between watching my accounts become smaller and the leftover drained feelings I'd had from working 12 straight days & some nights...exhaustion took over me and I went to nap but remembered I hadn't begun my malaria meds...so I busted a move to Mediclinic so I could pick up my meds for that and see my dermatologist one last time before I headed out.  It's a good thing too, not only for the visit but because I had stopped taking my skin meds the week before-the medications would not have worked well together in my system.

I came home and went back to bed...I saved the last bit of preparations for the AM.
