Youth Group Night
Today Mom worked, which is always a nice change of routine, as it gets boring when everything is exactly the same everyday. I already had all my school for the day finished, and so I just watched photography videos on YouTube, and chilled until Dad and Tevia came home. Around noon, Grandpa and Nana stopped by, and then Dad and I took the truck and went and got 20 haybales. Right after we got the hay, Dad dropped me off at Jeremy's house, where I abused his very fast wifi, and downloaded Windows and Deepin OS, as I plan on replacing Ubuntu with a duel-boot of the two if at all possible. After I was done with his wifi, Jeremy dropped me off at the grocery store on his way to work, where I helped an old lady carry out her groceries, and then emptied my bucket that I had at the register, in which there was more than 12 dollars! I then walked down to the post office, and got a package from them, which was a book I had made about our trip to Puerto Rico in fall of 2016, and then down to the bank to withdraw the $45 that had been donated online. The reason I had all of this money stuff to do, is because I've been raising money for Speed the Light, and it's been awesome. After that, Grandpa picked me up, and we went back to the post office for me to mail my tax returns, and then back to the gas station, to get snacks, and then over to Ketter's to get turkey jerky. After that, we went back to Grandpa and Nana's and chilled out over there until Dad came and picked us up. We went home and had dinner, and Mom came home, and then Mom and Dad went to a church meeting while I went to youth group. First we put together all the money we had raised for Speed the Light, and it turned out to be about $501, which meant that after Caleb doubled it, we had $1002. Then Caleb had a friend of his from the cities speak, and the rest of youth group kinda happend in such a way that you can't describe it with words. I helped clean up afterwards, and then Caleb gave me a ride home, as Mom and Dad don't think they'll be back until around 10:30 tonight. I also found a really good way to clean out my plugged nose really fast, but it involves flaming hot cheetos and needing lots of milk.
June 10, 2019 Boring Monday I didn't really feel like getting up as early this morning, so ended up staying in bed until around 7:15. It was really quite nice to stay in bed, even if I wasn't really sleeping at all. After I got up, I had some water to make sure I was hydrated, and then went outside and finished up some of the painting from Friday on the building across the parking lot, just doing some trim. I got done with that around 8:30, so then I just spent some quality time working on projects that I haven't had time to do lately (gotta love the fact that all my computers sync with my phone so I can work anywhere) and then went and cleaned the apartment. Dad came back from working slightly after I finished cleaning, and so we had lunch together, and then Mom came over from the hospital as well and stayed and talked until around 1. Once they both left, I did some more cleaning, boiled some eggs, cleaned the apartment kitchen again, worked on more stuff on my phone, pra…
June 01, 2019Leaving the Country We got up around 7:30 this morning and got ready to go before catching a shuttle to the airport around 8. When we got to the airport, we first had to go find our bag that they had lost the night before, then go check-in, and then check our bag, all before going through the busy security in Miami. There was a drug dog there, and I got told almost 5 times not to pet it, even though I wasn't even planning on petting it. We got through TSA, and then we went and found our gate. We sat there for only a few minutes before boarding started, and then it was a very easy flight to Roatan Honduras. We landed there and then got off the plane and went through customs. After we got all checked out, they let us officially enter the country where we got tickets for our next flight, and went through security again. After we got through security, we sat in the airport for awhile, where we had lunch (I had nachos) and then boarded a smaller 18 passenger plane for the m…
June 09, 2019 Spanish Church This morning I slept in more than I have any other day. Mom was the only one at the apartment when I woke up (Jana and Tevia have their own studio apartment) as Dad took a 3am - 8 shift in the hospital nursing. Mom has been on call the last two nights which has been rough for her, but she's fine I think. I got up and had a bite to eat, and then we all walked over to the on-campus church for the 8:30 service. It was all in Spanish, so even though we knew some of the songs, everything else was pretty confusing, as while I can pick up little bits, it's not enough to really understand the overall idea. It got over quite early, around 10:30, so we came back to the apartment and hung around. I played guitar for awhile, lost to Josh in a game of Scrabble, and then worked on my journal for awhile, and everyone else went down to the beach in the meantime. The days get to be quite long when you're not doing anything, so we had a family meeting during the…
