It's In the Mail

This morning I received one of my favorite types of email; a Peace Corps status change email.
It seems that my medical clearance package has been sent! I am sooo impressed with the organization of the Peace Corps. I know that it is very difficult to provide such detailed tracking to all of the prospective volunteers.
Here's my new app stat:

6 Weeks Out!

Well, no medical clearance package should be here soon...I'm guessing it takes longer during the holidays...all these dots are getting annoying...but I find myself unable to stop using them...

I finally got a hold of the right person at the VA. She said she had already setup 5 Peace Corps exams today! She also said the next exam would be 6 weeks out, unless there was a cancellation...I told her to go ahead and setup the appointment...

Here's my plan: when I get my medical clearance papers, I will stop in at my doctor's office and ask them what it would cost for the required exams (which are listed in the clearance papers) and how much would be paid by my insurance...if it's not much, I will schedule an appointment with my doctor instead of the VA...

to be continued...

Go Small

Tonight I am a little melancholy.

I'm trying to use a lesson from the book/movie "Touching the Void".

    When a task seems too large, go small and get as far as you can, and then do it again.
