Weekly Planning again! Always weird when Thursday comes around. It's usually the day that I realize time is passing. Monday is Pday, Tuesday is meetings, Wednesday is a blah day, and Thursday is the Day of Reckoning.
But today was good, we overhauled our Area Book and cleaned up our phone contacts. So we called all the old investigators to see if we could start up with them again, and we have a bunch of people to look for. There really aren't exact addresses here to plug into your GPS, so you just kinda have to wander around door to door asking if whatever person lives close to them or knows who they are. Makes for a lot of contacts, but it's a little tedious and indirect. Mostly because unless someone's taken you somewhere and you can perfectly picture how to get there and what everything looks like, the directions people give you don't make any sense, whatsoever. So you gotta know where you are before you get lost and ask how to get somewhere. Kinda backwards.

But we ate pastelitos (Mexican empanadas) in one of our citas, so that was nice. And Coke, of course, but the pastelitos were yummy. And we were gifted with a little flyer with instructions of how to avoid getting Zika, the variation of chickungunya that's raging all around down here. I still haven't caught anything like that yet, and I'm hoping it stays that way. I'd like less joint pain than I have, not more.
