Hola! How are things? Things are going well here. We got a new district this week, with 4 hermanas, which is exciting. Now my companionship isn't won't be the only girls in the zone. They are really quiet so far, but I think that its probably still due to feeling shellshocked. Also, I may be accompanying one of the Elders in our district for a musical number. He has a really good voice, and asked me if I could play the piano for him. The song is really pretty, if you want to listen to it its on LDS.org. Go to the youth section, and music, and its called "Shout for Joy." I believe its by Greg Hansen. Other than that, things are pretty much the same as always, as I mentioned they probably would be. I did however take the time last night to compile a list of answers to the questions you (Mom and Dad) asked in the Dear Elders from this week. I'll try to send the girls personal letters with answers to their questions.
Am I getting the Dear Elders?
How is rolling the R's going?
Is my temple recommend working?
do I have any ideas on how are family can not be too serious?
What happened to my roommates? Where did they go?
How is your ankle doing?
How is your knee?
Are you off crutches?
Did I ever get more pain medicine for me knee?
Funny story. Last week on p-day, after I emailed you, we got back to our room to find a note on our door telling me to come to the health clinic as soon as I got the note. We ended up waiting 40 minutes in the waiting room and when I got into the doctor, he said, "I hear you're going to be running out of some meds soon."
Me: yeah, but I'm just going to have my mom send some when she can.
Dr.: there is no "When she can" you can't let that medicine get out of your system.
Me: okay. . .
Dr.: so what medicine is it?
Dr. : Oh. So you're not on any psychotropic meds?
Me: no . . .
Are we allowed to go anywhere on p-day?
What do we do on P-days?
I generally start my p-days off by having the hardest time ever getting up at 6:30 because I don't have anywhere I have to be by 7. At 8 we go to breakfast, then we have personal study and then the temple. After the templi I write my weekly email and then we eat lunch and write letters. We have a scheduled laundry time so we do that, and then I write more letters. Then we have dinner and class. So basically I have just been trying to get caught up on writing people back.
Do I ever get time to myself:
Am I getting used to waking up at 6:30?
I'm glad to hear you all had a fun time in California! The aquarium sounds great, I'm so jealous.
