It has been quite a while since I wrote. I have been on quite a roller coaster lately and have had a hard time motivating myself to post. I will try to do better.
I lost my Grandma Sefcovic. She passed away at age 90 in Grand Junction, CO. She was an amazing and strong woman, much more so than I think she was given credit for in her life. I think I received from her the notion that you don't have to settle for the life you were born into. I will miss her terribly.
On the other end of the coaster, Carlos and Gloria are getting married this weekend so I have been up to my elbows in the pre-wedding festivities and preparations. We went out last week for Gloria's bachelorette party and I must say I blushed more than once. I am finding out that contrary to popular belief, we Gringos come from quite a prudish culture. My friend Kathy arrives Thursday night, so I am excited to hang out with her. It looks to be a very big, very fun party.
Work-wise, I am preparing for the arrival of my first official delegation. They will be coming from Weston Jesuit in Boston and get here the end of February. I am helping out with a youth delegation beginning next Monday, so that will be my trial run. I find myself running quite a bit trying to get prepared for this. It looks to be a great experience for the delegates so I hope I can pull through with the details.
I would also like to take a moment to welcome Rob back to Central America. He was a fellow Costa Rica PCV that is now working in an Orphanage for HIV positive kids in Honduras. We're neighbors! That's all for now.
