Awkward + Awesome... Tuesday!

Mixing it up this week with an awkward + awesome Tuesday post. I write the blog, I make the rules so Tuesday it is πŸ˜‰

Awkwards:
  • Power outages: Every. Damn. Day. 
  • When the Pastor at church in Uganda calls you out in front of the whole church and you just awkwardly wave cause you weren't paying attention πŸ™ˆ
  • When someone refers to you as a "missionary" and you look at them and say "Who me?" Looks of confusion on both sides followed. 
  • Taking 7 boys shoe shopping all at once. Mom's- you're all rockstars I don't know how you do it! 
  • Cooking over a charcoal stove. 
  • Taking an HOUR to warm up food. Not cook, just warm up. #ugandabekiddingme
  • Ordering chips and guac at the American cafe in town and then getting French fries and guac served to you. Only then do you remember: it may be an American cafe but this country was previously a British Colony. #americanstruggles

Awesomes: 
  • Getting to visit with our Secondary School Boys.
  • Sharing your cucumber with a little one that's never had one... and doesn't know how to sweetly tell you she totally hates it. 
  • SUCCESSFULLY MAKING PASTA AND HOMEMADE SAUCE. PRAISE HANDS ALL DAY πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
  • Finding fresh herbs at the market! 
  • Sleepovers with friends. 
  • FaceTime-ing one of your youths! 
  • Getting an interview request from an old youth student. 
  • Rainy days. 
  • Being absolutely accosted and attacked every time I step into the Preschool grounds- they're so excited to see you it makes every tug and pull worth it.
