9:15 work til 6. see www.allgirlsallowed.org.
(around 3 start crying from reading a Google Translated email from our team in China about a woman who was stabbed in the stomach the day she was due to give birth to her baby–the needle went right into the baby’s head, killing it.) my job is to translate these stories into more appropriate language and disseminate info / educate our friends.
6:30: go to apple store cause the iphone i got today (first smart phone!) shuts off when i turn on the camera. make appointment.
shop at shaws for laundry detergent and coffee filters. show great restraint without my food stamps and avoid buying food. look at boots at EMS. go back to appointment with many more quarters than i’d had before–ready for laundry day.
7:15 still waiting. running behind.
