It's been mostly sunny here. They say that this next week the temperature is supposed to hit the 90s! Send some of that cold weather my way would you? Honestly, I had to wear my jacket more last winter than this one, even after I had the Summer for my blood to thin.
So, this week has been decent.
On Tuesday, we had the opportunity to remove a palm tree from the front yard of one of our less actives. He injured his knee on a skiing trip, so he accepted our help. it was an interesting task, but we figured it out. I think he's really starting to warm up to us. On Friday, after our lesson, he even gave us a ride home. I'm hoping this means we can start getting him to other things.
We also have dinner with a different less active family tonight. We hope to be able to get them active soon. They currently have a son on a mission in West Virginia. (we don't know either, so don't ask.) We managed to get them to Sacrament Meeting yesterday to hear me sing.
"Sing?" you ask? Did I not tell you about that. Well, yesterday I received the opportunity to do the special musical number in Sacrament Meeting. I sang "I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go"; a great missionary hymn. It was a solo, and not only was it fit for me to sing as a missionary, but I also put a Spanish missionary twist on it. I decided to sing the second verse in Spanish. You know, the one about 'I'll say what you what me to say'. I thought it was a good idea. I recorded a run through during a practice session, and intended to get one of the actual performance, but I forgot my MP3 player on Sunday. So, I'm left with the practice recording. It's not the best quality, but it's better than nothing.
Guess what I found out this week...I found out what happens when I don't have my medicine. Apparently, when I take my medicine, I'm more awake and I'm a bit more focused and calm. Well, this monday, Walmart was out of adderal, and I ran out on Wednesday. I was super tired every day there after, and I was also a bit more random than normal. I think I like myself better when I'm on my meds. I also find it less difficult to speak when I have my meds, as well. I made sure to drop off the prescription today and am going to pick it up as soon as I can. That might be tomorrow after District Meeting, however. Wish me good blessings!
I also realized something else this past week: This, being my 4th transfer here, means that I will have been here for roughly 6 months at the end of this transfer. That's 1/4th of my mission in whole! (ok so it's only going to be for 5+1/2 months, but still.) That's a long time. It's going by so fast! Soon enough I'll be home again.
That's it for this week. Oh, I meant to do this last week: Happy Birthday, Tyler
Also, Happy Missionary Awareness Day! (February 14th)
Until next time.
