Wish granted…kind of

I’ve been meaning to get this out here, but I always wanted a bed with a canopy. From a girl’s point of view it’s always something a princess would have.

Well, wish granted in Uganda! Little did I realize it would come in the form of a mosquito net above my bed. I clearly didn’t think this one through. I had absolutely no idea how incredibly difficult it is to tuck in a mosquito net after an exhausting day.

The thing about mosquito nets is that just about the time you crawl into bed and literally tuck yourself in, you realize you have to go to the bathroom. Typical. So you get out to go to the bathroom, tuck yourself back in and realize the light switch is across the room. I’m pretty sure this happened every other night for me and Gabby – if not every night. Yep. You think we’d learn right?

But hey, at least we’re safe from getting Malaria right? Especially after dousing our entire room with deet at one point. That counts for something right?
