Day 40

There are now three living breathing things that reside in my room, a large black spider, a green gecko and myself. I am still at war with the flies and mosquitos so I have decided to entertain the spider and gecko because I heard that they eat mosquitos and flies. I am so thankful that I have the net over my bed at this point because although I am tolerating the spider and gecko I do not want them sleeping on the pillow next to me. This morning was exhausting! Basically, I spent hours shopping for food. First it was this store that contains huge bags of onions, potatoes and oranges (nothing else in the store) and then to the Indian owned vegetable store that is so crowded you have to smash in next to people to get your vegetables, and then to the supermarket for the rest of the food. It took about 3 hours and I am not looking forward to next Saturday. The process was made worse given that over the holidays we really had not properly done any shopping. I now sympathize with my mother more than ever shopping and feeding a house of 7 is very tiring!
