Hip, hip, hooray! S. received the employment guarantee we’ve been looking for. Word came via email within the last hour. Currently the NGO is working out our housing logistics in Bangkok. S. is expected to be in Atlanta with paperwork in hand by February 9th and almost certainly in Thailand by the end of next month. I can’t tell you the relief I feel. Finally, we are moving forward, not just treading water. As S. just said, “My, my, what a difference a month makes!” Who knows what might have happened in another six.
In the mean time, I remain insanely busy with school, but not paralyzingly so. I’m still able to work productively. I’m making progress. However, this evening I’m mind-numbingly exhausted. I can barely keep my eyes open. I want to sleep. I want to sleep deeply for a very long time. And in that spirit, I’m going to hip, hip, hooray myself to bed.
