Calming down

The gifts have stopped coming, I have been at work without missing a day for two weeks, and so I think that things are finally calming down. We love our new apartment and will be sad when we have to leave it in just four three short months. We are looking for something a little bit more permanent, so I can finish up school and Adam can start.

We really like our new ward. Everyone has been very friendly, and I was so grateful for all the help we received moving in. It brought me to tears. They were so willing to drop what they were doing and just help out, even on such short notice.

Knowing that we have a support network, a good support network, makes me so grateful for the the gospel. Speaking of the gospel, I sent Miah a "greenie package" where everything in the package is green. I'm so proud of him. The mission is a hard thing. The MTC is an amazing place and if you could stay there indefinitely, it would be a lot easier. Going from the MTC to the field, is how I would imagine going from the pre-earth life to our current mortal life would feel if we could remember it. Calm, organized everyone working toward the same goal to chaos with a lot more agency, not really knowing what's going on, but trying to do our best to get back to the people we love, and do it with honor.

Now that I've gone off on a random tangent. I actually had an openhouse up here. I did a poor job of letting people know so only three people showed up. I felt bad until I realized that it was my fault for having it in the middle of the week, and not really letting people know. :D I bet I would have had more people come if I'd posted it on my blog!
