February 1, 2016

Hi all!!

Well it was an interesting recovery week after the big snow! Since theses East Coasters don't know how to deal with snow it turned into another half week for us.. So here's what happened. 

Monday we tried to metro out of the city to our car. After navigating a metro that was only running like every 40 min (usually like every 10) and get to our metro stop. Trudge through some knee deep snow with a backpack on a suitcase in my arms only to find out that the church parking lot isn't plowed. We call the zone leaders and find out it won't be plowed for the rest of the day. So we turn around and metro back to Capitol Hill.. But it's okay because it was a great ending to my birthday! We made my cake and had a great time. Plus one more Risk game to end the night haha 

So we wake up Tuesday and go back through the process to get out our car.. Only to find out it still ISNT PLOWED!! Ahhhh!! So we get told it was suppose to be plowed the day before and if not it for sure would be that day. Because we assumed it would be plowed that day we camp out in the East-West Chapel and start to make calls and do all we can to get our week ironed out for once we get there. Then we start to watch every church video we can get on our iPad, next thing we know it's 5:30 and getting dark.. So we have to figure out where we are sleeping so we call up the Traveling Trainers and they bail us out. Since they live down the street they come pick us up and run up to Laurel so we can get out suits since we had our mission temple trip the next morning. So we get back and sleep the night at their apartment. 

Wednesday we wake up and go to the temple. It was amazing as always! Plus the streak has been extended!! McDonald and me right next to each other to keep the streak alive! So we make our traditional lunch stop at Wheaton Mall and go back to see if the car has finally been plowed out... FINALLY! 6 days after snow has fallen it has finally been plowed!!! So we got back to work as much as we can.

Sadly the rest of the week isn't much to talk about. It was one of the slowest weeks of my mission, work wise. Since the federal government and all the schools were still closed all week everyone just seemed to be shut in and not want to be bothered.

In the only other big news this week is we got transfer call out on Saturday night! For the first time in my entire mission so far... Nothing changed! I'm staying in the same area with the same companion! Crazy to think I've always had something change on a transfer, so it's kinda nice to just keep plugging along with what I have going. I hope I leave after this transfer but life is good, we are just gonna keep working!

Hope you all have a great week! Love you lots and miss you tons!!


The pictures are of us at the East-West Chapel waiting for the parking lot to get plowed. The heat wasn't on all the way since it was during the week. And our feet were freezing from trudging around in the snow, but luckily we found a space heater haha
