It's finally May
Today was the first day of May, and it was our first real rainy day. I woke up at 6:45ish, which I was really glad of because Dad had turned off the internet last night because of the storm, so my alarm wouldn't have gone off otherwise. It was still cloudy and a little rainy, with the temp being about 35 degrees outside. We had fried eggs for breakfast, and then Tevia took off to school. Jana and I convinced Mom and Dad to let us go over and spend the day at Grandpa and Nana's, so Dad dropped us off on his way to work around 8:30. It was pretty cold when we got there, but we had a little more breakfast, and then I went outside and took the canoe out for a little spin, going through the ice that was melting. It was rather cold still and I was wearing only shorts and flip-flops, so I didn't stay out there for too long, but then went in and got started on school. I had chemistry class, and then Grandpa made roast sandwiches for lunch with gravy and chips, which were super good. After lunch I worked on school some more, and found some really cool features with Google Photos that I didn't know about before. I did some more school work, and then Jana and I went up to get the mail in the golf cart, and the fitbit like watches that Grandpa had ordered for us, so we spent some time setting those up, and they are super awesome. Around 4:30, Grandpa brought us home to an empty house and dirty kitchen, and so I kinda thought about starting dinner while Jana got ready for Drivers Education. I ended up deciding to go for a run, which felt like it was a really long 3 mile run, but only ended up being 0.68 miles and taking 9 minutes, after which, I was completely exhausted... just shows how great of shape I'm in. Anyway, I came back inside after my run and made Queshe for dinner, which didn't end up being done till almost 7:40. After dinner, I drove into town with Dad and Tevia to pick up Jana at the school, and then we came home and had a little family devotions time before bed.
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…
