Pals, a few weeks ago we said we were going to be away for a bit off adventuring. Instead, our Lady is learning to live with being flexible. You see she was suppose to leave for New York City this morning for a couple days of training before heading to Tanzania with the Global Autism Project. After 2 weeks of crazy preparations, mainly for work, especially for lady's who don't get paid when they don't work, around 7 pm on Saturday evening, she received an email saying that due to the Coronavirus all trips for February were cancelled. So for the past couple days Lady has been busy rescheduling a February here. She keeps saying it is Flexible February.
Now Lady is having me write this so she doesn't go on a tirade about her believed over reaction to this new, but not new virus. She won't say the deer she was within centimetres of hitting yesterday morning is a greater threat to her personal safety. Instead I will say, she is disappointed and a little frustrated. She is also learning to respect other people have different concerns regarding health and personal safety.
You may be asking, what about all the $$$$$$$ she had to raise for this trip? Many of our friends were generous donors for this. Well, never fear friends, your donated money will allow her to go on a trip later this year. The next trips run in July and October. Lady will be placed on a team soon. It is a huge undertaking for the organization to reschedule what Lady guesses is about 100 people.
So while Lady is a little upset, we are very, very happy to have her home. Even if it was very confusing on Saturday with the packing the suitcase and unpacking the suitcase (and by suitcase we mean carryon size backpack, Lady has learned to pack small!)
If Lady can get herself organized, we will be back to blogging and visiting you all (we really miss you) soon!
