Hold Your Breath....


Cross your fingers everyone. I was just going to post about all the hoops I've been going through lately with my medical clearance. I had to get additional shots, blood work, and a health evaluation ON TOP of my physical - to see if the doctor thought I was physically fit enough to do demanding manual labor.

I also have been trying to get in contact with my placement officer as she was requesting additional information regarding my education, finances, and volunteer work.

I was getting to the point of hysteria as no one was calling me back!
My mom offered to give me a down-payment on a little house in Strawberry Hill (the old Slavic neighborhood in KCK where she grew up) if I wanted to stay here and forgo service!

I was going to cry and scream through the ginormous gap in my teeth when lo!

I received this email:
