Don't Freak--It's Still Live from Haiti:

After my husband John started a blog,, (our blog names reflect the ying and the yang of our relationship) I was jealous of his snazzier template, so I decided to change mine, though I do know that my discerning readership realizes that content is king. You also don't mind reading really long sentences. One of these days, I will learn to post pictures and save us all 1,000 words.

Here's an embarrassing admission: I'm a sucker for self-help books, but only good ones. And so the second book I read in Haiti was "It's About Time: The Six Styles of Procrastination and How to Overcome Them" by Linda Sapadin and Jack Mcguire. It is a good one, and here's what I learned. My dominant procrastination style is Dreamer with some elements of Worrier and Overdoer mixed in. I also learned that I need to differentiate between feeling good--like after I eat chocolate--and feeling good about myself--like after I jump rope. Got it? Hopefully, I do. Blogging is fun for me, so I'm off to do some more difficult writing--like the long awaited tuberculosis tutorial.

Hi Maria,

I should be studying for Thursday's final, but I did want to tell you I liked the original look of your blog better.

Always the critic,


P.S. I'm enjoying your posts immensely. Regards to John as well!

Really? I thought the first template looked kind of washed out. I'm glad you're still reading, though and good luck with finals. Only one more semester!
