Church & Bible Study
Today I woke up to the noise of a rooster crowing right underneath my window... needless to say, I wasn't super thrilled. I went back to sleep, and then woke up around 8:15. Koby had already been awake for awhile, but was still in bed as well. We got ready for church and Koby got all his stuff packed, before going downstairs and having some French toast for breakfast. We took off for church, and I got the church calendar updated before Sunday school. After Sunday school, we had the normal service, during which Koby, Bradly, and I had to talk about our trip to Wisconsin last week (we were the only ones who went on the trip at church). Rhonda also gave us some details about VBS coming up this summer, and I got signed up to help with the drama again. After church, we went home and had a quick lunch of burritos and other leftovers, and then Dad, Koby, and I drove to Fargo to drop Koby off with his Mom, as they needed to go back to North Dakota today. On the way back, Dad and I drove by our old house, and then also stopped to look at some cool plants. When we got home, the girls were trying to figure out what to watch on Netflix, and so we started, "The Spy Next Door" which they hated, but then I took off on the scooter and went to see Jeremy and Sherri. They were just having dinner, and then we went for a walk down to the river with Dawson and their dog, Apollo, and then walked back to their place. It was almost 6pm, so I drove over to Harvest church, where I had Bible study with Caleb and Nicole. After Bible study, which was super awesome (we were on Crazy Love chapter 3) and lasted almost 30 minutes longer than usual, I went back home, but first stopped by Grandpa and Nana's house and talked to them for awhile. Drove home, said hi to Mom before she went to bed, and then tried to get some sleep before my MCA Reading test tomorrow.
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…
November 06, 2019 Traveling Day Although I had my alarm set for 4am this morning, I ended up waking up at 3:30 anyway, which really annoyed me. Once my alarm finally went off at 4, I got up out of bed, dressed and got cleaned up really quickly, and then Chris and I left the house around 4:20. He dropped me off at the airport in Terminal 1 for American Airlines. The TSA line was very short, so I hopped right in, and successfully got through after getting my toothpaste stolen by a grumpy old security guy. I made my way to the gate, and sat there until it started boarding. None of the restaurants were open yet, so I just skipped breakfast. We left the gate right on time, but then had about a 45 minute delay while they de-iced the plane wings. After they finished de-icing the plane, we took off, and got to enjoy a super beautiful sunrise over Minneapolis at 35 thousand feet. The plane arrived right on time somehow in Charlotte North Carolina, but the airport was extremely big, so by the t…
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…
