Yesterday was pretty bad. J came back and took the kids away for a while and I sat around listlessly a while and then napped a sweaty nap. But when I woke I felt better. Did some mending.

We belatedly discovered that the ac window unit in the one room does actually work and helps a lot. Better late than never, I suppose.

Today before I could have tea E woke and I had to resleep him. Got up, made tea, then U woke. No morning time for me. And J has an extra long day today.

It’s unclear to what extent making the infographics available in extra languages will be useful. It might be specifically in the case of regional linguafrancas. Many people who are literate at all would be literate in a colonial language. It’s not clear to me how to obtain information about what languages are most needed. I am waiting for someone to let me into an Arizona refugee aid FB group where I might ask, but waiting is waiting.
