The storm before the calm

So my last few weeks have been pretty insane, one thing after another on top of another.

So first I had finals. The Sunday before finals week (I had two finals left) my roommate Michele told us she was NOT getting married in Brazil in a few weeks as planned, but THAT THURSDAY. Being the awesome roommates we are, we helped her put that together--THAT was quite a week. I had to bother and annoy all the people necessary in order to get my temple recommend so that I could actually BE at the wedding, as well as clean up our house for the reception.

This was during the time that I was GOING to be packing up and moving out and finishing up my last project at work.


I worked until mid-afternoon on Friday and got my last project finished, then I went back to the apartment and started packing up.

Then I got a call from mom.

Breanna had a special Lagoon day the next day, and she'd only be able to stay until 1 o'clock, unless I could come supervise her and her friends... so could I possibly get all my packing and moving done that night?

I drove home at two in the morning.

We left Lagoon at four, and I slept.

Sunday was Sunday, and Monday morning it was off to CA with Kim, Becky, and Michelle to meet MWT. Who is made of awesome, just by the way. And my mom is awesome, for making it possible for me to go.

I got home in time to unpack and re-pack to head off to Florida. This was good practice for the mission, I believe--it was hot, and humid, and we walked and walked and walked and walked (though we didn't really sing much as we did). I can't say I really liked the climate, but I do think I could get used to it. I'll have to. (I'm very glad to be back in my dry mountainous desert, where my hair actually gets dry and I know North from South again.)

So this is all one of those hurry-up-and-WAIT scenarios. Because now I'm home, and I do have a few things on my to-do list, and three months to do it all in. The original plan was to have a month to do it all in, because my avalability date for the mission was June 1st. So I have nothing planned for June and July. I'll just... read, and paint, and shop for missionary clothes (etc.) and cook dinner. And go on a couple family vacations I didn't think I'd go on.


Well, off I go. To do... stuff. Yeah, stuff.

Do you want to hang out again? Me and deeds could come and bother you some time when you're bored. That would be AWESOME. And we could make earthquake cake for real because I'd remember to bring the ingredients. And I could get my coat!

Umm- you are crazy busy! Hey- and let's hear the dish on meeting MWT!

Joc--I am entirely happy and avaliable to be bothered. I don't have a whole lot planned, so tell me when you're thinking and it will probably work out.

And I've kind of been avoiding writing about meeting MWT. I guess I can put something together... its not like I'm too busy, I guess. :-)

Sarah, I didn't know you actually went to Michelle's wedding! That's so awesome! I'm super jealous that you live so close to a temple.
I'm kind of jealous of how much time that you have too before you leave because I'm starting to freak out about how much have to do and prepare for and I don't feel like I have enough time. But I can totally understand it being frustrating to have to wait.
And WE NEED THE SCOOP on Megan Whalen Turner!
And!!! I was on the website for your mission and I saw they had your name as someone who recieved their call! Wicked awesome...or maybe righteous awesome would be more appropriate...
Anyways, I love you and hope I will see you before we depart to our polarly opposite missions.
