Home Sweet Home

I have always observed that vacations are wonderful. Most times you feel like you've been able to do everything that you wanted and/or didn't do anything that you didn't want to. That's how this vacation has been. Reentry is always painful but then I always observe that coming home is a wonderful thing. Back in my own bed. Using my own toilet, shower and car. I know these things are trivial and random but I do so love being home.

I have to admit though that getting myself out of Bellingham was a necessity. I experienced MUCH Booth humor and have lost at least 2 or 3 pounds from laughing so much. Sometimes you just need to roll around on da flo a little bit. By the way I came back a gangsta or should I say wangsta. Fo SHo!

Just kidding. Well actually Austin and I did come back different than when we started. I am apparently now a wangsta and he is Jamaican. Although I think anyone from Kingston might protest ;)

But really. I did spend a ridiculous amount of time on the floor this week. My WHOLE family cracks me up. I even got to wear a raccoon on my head. :) And I heard stories about my cousin catching, killing and skinning a skunk. He is 11. They went into the forest. By themselves. No parental supervision. I really LOVE them. The 14 year old looks 18 and is HUGE. He is a football player I think and is definitely going to be (if he isn't already) a Lady Killer. The 15 year old that looks like Kirstin Dunst always amazes me with her poise and beauty and always looks at least 3 years older than she is. I could go on all night about how my family is amazing and cracks me up. But I won't bore you anymore. I am so content and wouldn't want another family for the world. They are THE BEST (despite all of our craziness).

Chippy did pee when we came home, but we strategically called him outside when we came home so that he wouldn't pee all over us. That would be gross and we wanted to avoid that happening a second time.

I am happy to be home. I do not regret leaving. I do not regret anything that happened there. I am ready for spring quarter. My life is changing and I think that I will be ready for it when it does.

Signing off.

p.s. The Church is true. Pray about it and you'll know! As far as I've seen it's the only place that i have felt that assurance that my family will be together forever. And I KNOW that they will and all can be!

Haha....Poor Chippy....But HOORAY for being home!

I have a lot to do tomorrow (or today, depends on when you get to reading this)....but I will definitely make some time to stop by and get my BOOTH FIX!

Matty :D

and si I agree....I was reading some "anti LDS" discussions boards online, and the ignorance and illiteracy found in them only strengthened my testimony....it's sad how people will believe anything they hear about us EXCEPT what we say....but it always helps to know that although I struggle at times, I can always turn to my family and friends in the church (that would be you guys) for help....again, thanks for all you've done, it may not seem like much, but you really have been a great influential part on me spiritually these past few months :D
