Suriving Civilian Life

Well, here I am again. I'm still alive and kicking. And I'm adjusting to life quite well. I love my job. It's a great way to adjust to "normal" life again. Let's see...what have I done this week? I worked a couple of days. I went to the mall with mom...and found yet another super cute outfit! I babysat my cousin's daughters...SO adorable! We played wii...and they wanted to break out the barbies just as their mom got back to pick them up. So I told them that one day that I'm off work this week I'd go pick them up and bring them back here to play barbies.

I was also able to go to the temple a couple of times. Once I went with a former District Leader from the mission. It was great to see him again. But I'm not gonna was a little weird to hug an elder from the mission. The other time I went with my dad. Mom was going to go with us, but she wasn't feeling well, so we got to go on a daddy-daughter date. That was nice too.

I went out to the YSA branch again today. There were lots of familiar faces, though several new ones as well. It was good to be back out there. I already have a calling: I'm the FHE coordinator. I like that calling! I've had it once before...except in the summer. So I get to plan all of the FHE activities until I go back to school. That will be fun! I'm pretty excited!

So...I feel like there were all sorts of things I wanted to say in this blog, but I can't remember any of them right now. So I guess I'm not going to blog about those things. Oh well. Enjoy!

OH! Before I post this! I remember what it was! I went Latin Dancing Friday night! It was SO super amazing! I had 18...well, 19, months of built-up "I wanna dance" energy. The music started, and my feet started moving. And they didn't stop moving until I got in my car to come home over 2 hours later. I had so much fun! The first guy who asked me to dance asked what I'm studying and where I'm living and all that good stuff, and when I said that I'd just gotten home from a mission, he kinda jumped back (mid-dance) and was like "Are you okay with this?!" It was pretty funny. And there was another guy who was spinning me right and left. Yeah, that was pretty fun. I really had forgotten how fun Latin Dancing is! I can't wait to get back there and be able to go dancing every weekend. But for now, I'll be up there as often as my schedule permits...and gas money.

  1. sounds like you acclimating to civilian life. How fun the dancing sounds. You will have to teach me the latin dancing. Id' love to take the lessons offered, but you have to bring your partner. Yah, like that can happen. Major Bummer! Oh well. I may actually have to try your "ology" post on my blog. Keep smiling!
