Well, the rest of my training group is now settling in Ukraine and I'm still at the Holiday Inn in Georgetown. My Peace Corps passport has been held up so I can't go anywhere until I get that vital document back. At least a chunk of us are stuck here, about 30 from our group of around 80, so it's a chance for us to bond and relax for a bit. Still, I just want to get there and get started. We're hopeful that we'll be able to get on a flight tomorrow evening (Monday) and be in Ukraine Tuesday. At least the weather is cooperating in DC and I'm enjoying one last glorious weekend in my "home town" before I leave.
I still don't have anything interesting to report. Guess this is just more of a status update than anything else.
On a totally unrelated note, here's a picture of Sadie with all her new dog friends! Buddy, the lab, is her new BFF in Iowa and Molly, the poodle, is my parents' dog who is being a gracious hostess to Sadie right now and is showing her the ropes in St. Louis. And that's Brad, my sister's boyfriend and Buddy's daddy!
