One Week Down

Well, here I am, and true to my word, I'm not going to stop giving updates on my life after the mission. Exactly one week ago, I was saying goodbye to President and Sister Miller in the Albuquerque Airport. Just one week? It feels like an eternity ago! But yeah, it's just been one week. And so much has happened.

My homecoming was on Sunday. It was so great to see my friends again, at least those who have been able to come. I also hugged my first guy friend... that was AwKwArD! But I survived, and each hug got a little less awkward. I've talked to others on the phone. And you know, it's just like I never left. Weird.

I'm starting to be able to be left alone. In fact, I was alone for most of the day yesterday cleaning and organizing my room and unpacking. Slowly but surely I'm getting it all done. I was also listening to "worldly" music. Now, for most of you it's no big deal to listen to country music or soft rock music, or whatever else my sister has on her i pod (because I have no music on mine yet) but for me it was. The first few times I tried to listen to music I had to turn it off. I just couldn't do it! But I'm getting there. Poco a poco.

Tonight I'm planning on paying a long-overdue visit to Rexburg... and COUNTRY DANCING! WooHoo! I'm excited! My dancing shoes are ready!


  1. The first things that really freaked me out is when my dad handed my a cell phone to talk to my mom while I was driving about a week after I got home. I panicked, dropped the phone and almost had to pull over. :)

  2. I've never been on a mission but I've heard the forst month home is a total shocker. I bet you'll be back into the swing of things soon. For now...HAVE FUN!!
