A MOUSE!!!!! Monday, April 21, 2014

Hello everyone! I actually don't know who you all are but I love you for gathering at your screen to read about missionary work in the Arvada 3rd Ward! This past week was Week 5 of my 2nd transfer! Next week is Transfer Monday. Super weird... 
So I was on my sleep over this past week! and one of the mornings at exactly 1:30 a.m. I awoke to something crawling on my hair. (I am a light/deep sleeper.) So as I lay there with my eyes open wondering if I should move or not something dashes in front of my face and then turns around and goes back! I jumped out of bed and turned the light on. I can't see anything so I get on S. Kreissl's bed to aviod it crawling over my feet and wake her up. We end up going into the living room to sleep, or attempt for me. The next day luckily, we were sleeping at our home so I didn't have to go through a night of no sleep. The family set a trap and they caught the nasty thing! It was a mouse! A MOUSE touch me when I was sleeping. Gross. 
Oh so that was Thursday morning and on Monday it was Zone P-day and we all played volleyball and basketball and I got to play catch!! It was so fun! I let some elders use my glove too. One of them, Elder Schmitt felt bad cause it was all sweaty but I told him not to worry cause I sweat in the glove too... Silly Elder. 
We have an investigator named Desiree and she is 16 and I know she is solid! We taught her twice this past week and this week hopefully twice again! And an investigator named Shane who is awesome! He is 27 though so we have to hand him over to the YSA ward. 
I rolled the window down one day and sqwacked at some birds... yah there was a car behind us with his window down... Oh well though! 
I have received some nicknames! Hermana Aranya... not sure on spelling but it means Sister Spider. No joke... the spiders come after me. And Anorexia. Grandpa Nelson gave me that one! He lives with us.
I am giving up dairy. Not fully. Cause if someone feeds me dairy I need to eat it of course ;) but no milk just almond milk or Kefir. I am working on just eating healthy things! Cause I need to be healthy. I want to come home looking the same :)
We had an Easter Activity where the kids went on a hunt and then we did a church tour for all those that were interested! It turned out super good for the first time of doing it! Next year will be tons better!!!
I made it into the Journal of Daweson Jones! He is the dad of one of the families here that I love!! He wrote "I got kicked out of dinner by a sister missionary." Ohkay. The story. One day we were over there for dinner and he was sick and was deciding whether or not to go lay down or to stay and I said Go lay down. We don't want to get sick. and he ended up writing about it! YAY me. I'm in a journal :) I love it here in Arvada! The people are great! And all of you are great as well :)
S. Kreissl is the best! She is keeping good care of me so no worries :)
Love you all! If you want, you could always write me a letter :)
