Yesterday Vince and I decided it might be our last chance to hit the bazaar together, so we headed down there for a couple hours. I've been wanting some pottery since I first laid my eyes on the cute little venue, so I finally picked up a couple pieces. I'll have to take a picture of the ones I bought when we get home. Aren't they all so pretty?

It happened again! Last year we had a huge earthquake in the middle of the night that freaked me out. We hadn't had any rocket attacks yet, so that's what I thought it was. My whole room shook like crazy and everything fell off the walls. The same thing happened this time just over in the Hindu Kush mountains. I thought it was a helicopter taking off, but the vibrating got stronger and stronger and wouldn't go away for what seemed like the longest time. About an hour afterwards I saw reports on the CNN news from Kabul. The guys said he's from California and has never felt anything like it. I just imagine those pictures of California where houses fall into giant pits and slide off hillsides and start huge fires. Luckily we don't have any mansions to fall into holes, but I do have a little shack that might disappear if a whole did open up! EEK!

Okay, so I'm sure you've guessed by now that I'm back in Afghanistan. Since coming back over here it's been a whirlwind of getting things ready to ship home. I also left my camera back there at home, so I don't have any pictures to share. I mailed three big trunks home yesterday too. Two of those were my scrappin' supplies. I feel totally lost without all my crafty things around me. I have just four days left to move out of my room and into the tents on the other side of the base. I'm really not looking forward to that. The buses only run once an hour at night, so it's really going to be annoying having to plan my day around a sparse bus route. I'm already working 12-14 hours a day. I'm exhausted, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
