Coming home is always really weird, I can't imagine how weird it is for missionaries to come home after serving for two years.
I always love going into zumiez and talking to james for the first time after coming back. This time i got to go in to give him ben's computer charger to give back to ben when he came into work that night. Not that hard.
"Hey! I havent seen you in forever!"
"Yea, I'm just home for thanksgiving... say, boy. can you give this to ben when he comes in?"
...james looks at the clock "Hewon't be here for about a half an hour."
"I know, can you just give it to him when he gets here?"
"Sure.... what it is for?"
"It's a computer charger.... i have a huge A project due when i get back, and i left mine in Idaho."
"Oh cool. "
...."well, see ya"
James is lucky he's so cute....
Basicly home has provided me with two things.
1. Bubbles, our lovely hot tub.
2. a ballin' oversized long sleeve tee shirt from my faja.
Idaho never seems that far away, ever. Not even when you drive it. I think it's crazy that I'm 19 and i live in two places, half way across the country from each-other.
I wrote Maxamilian and mailed it off yesterday. I really wanted im to get a letter his first day or two in the MTC, but im not that organized. The only thing my mom said about Max was his name is Maximilian? Why? That's a mexican name.
I miss Maximilian. A lot. Even though he is off track and if he had not gone on a mission I wouldnt have seen him till next summer, just knowing that he is going on a mission makes him seem so much further away from me. Like on the moon or something. and he might as well be on the moon for two years.
The crazy thing is i am planning on transferring to BYU Hawaii next year, and what if I see him? I can't hug him or anything.... But Max never really hugged. he shook your hand.
Currently abby is growling at me because I am using her as a pillow, but it was her idea to lay right where my head needs to go..... I'm just waiting for her to attack.
I love abby... I wished she loved me back, or at least tolerated me.
We have ben told to give a prayer of nothing but thanks, especially during this time of thanksgiving.
I try to give thanks prayers at night and only ask for things in the morning, for the coming day.... but i often forget to say my pray in the morning which leaves me in a pickle if i even need anything.
anyway I though I would make a list of all the things i am thankful and love here so when i forget to pray about them they still are counted somewheres.
