Last week.

My friend PajamaPants and I went to Balboa Park's organ pavillion to watch a silent film, "The Cameraman". Oh man, it was a trippy experience!! It was really neat to be watching a film outside, underneath the stars. And then for it to be a silent film was a real treat! Below you'll notice an organ. The organist played the entire 77 minutes of the film!! I couldn't believe it!! It was truly fantastic!!

The last Knox softball game for the season :( Some really great times were had!! I'll miss that softball field--it was right on the bay. So pretty!! I'll miss hangin' out with my coworkers out of work and Mr. NY trying to teach me how to get there. So many fun moments!

YSA luau! Good food...great friends...Fun times!!

Went to the Temple and had a FANTASTIC time!! Learned a lot of new things & can't wait to learn some more new things next week. Hung out with a new friend at the temple, who'll soon be leaving in a month once she has her baby. She's so funny and I loved watching her with her husband. They make a wonderful couple. I hope to find a man as sincere and caring as he. Also got to hang out with Berkeley (He's in the left Friday photo above.) and LOVED IT!! He makes me laugh and I'll miss him when he moves to Utah in a month.

Today was my last Sunday in my YSA ward. Luckily, I was able to see my friend Jane who came to SD for a visit. I'm really going to miss my YSA ward. Terrific people, but I know it's time to try something new. I also attended a baptism of a friend's husband. I'm really stoked for this new change in their lives and can't wait til they become an eternal family in a year.
Tonight was the first practice of stake choir. I was invited to sing with them again. I'm so ecstatic!! I'm truly humbled and happy to be apart of the choir. However, I will miss having my nephew there with me, like last time. Last stake conference we sang, "Called to Serve" which was dedicated to Simi since he received his mission call right before a choir practice. Tonight we sang it since we'll be singing it at conference again. The floodgates opened made me miss Simi oh so much. On the way home from church, he and I would always sing the two pieces from choir. So singing "Called to Serve" made me miss him more than ever. Note to self: DO NOT WEAR MASCARA TO THE NEXT STAKE CONFERENCE!!

All in all, I've gotta say it was a great week and I can't wait for all the new and exciting experiences that await me this week!!

-Elder Lomu's FANTASTIC and LOVING the MTC!! I'm soooooo happy for him! I'm glad that he's loving it there!! His missionary companion is also from San Diego! I think that's so awesome!! I would have loved to have had a mission comp. from San Diego! But I'm grateful to have a fellow RM live close by. Elder Lomu loves it there and couldn't be any happier!
-Hmm... so I still talk to that RM that I went on the date with. We're friends but he lives too far away right now. Such a hilarious guy!!
-I went to the Single Adult ward (31+ yrs old) yesterday and TOTALLY loved it!! It was so wonderful!! I loved NOT being the oldest or tallest one there!! Plus I came across several ol' friends that I haven't seen in a while. I would love to permenantly attend that ward, but we'll see (I don't know if I'm allowed to attend since I'm not 31 yrs old). For now, I'm just trying to get my records moved out of my YSA ward. My time there has ran it's course and now it's time to move on. Tonight the SA ward will be watching a 'silent film' in Balboa Park. I'm really excited to hang out with them tonight! :)
-Several friends have asked me why I'm not in a relationship. First, let's start with at least dating the same guy. That I am not doing right now....there's no one in my life that I'd like to have a serious relationship with right now. In the last year, I've learned a lot more about myself and what type of qualities I'd like in a man. In which, I will expound on that later.......gotta get back to work.

This ring...I love this ring! I want this ring :(

This week has been kinda weird. It's weird not having my nephew Simi around. It gets easier each day, but I'm still counting the days he's been gone and when he's coming back. MAYBE I could be a Missionary Mom someday :)

I have so much on my mind. I'm debating what ward I'd like to go to. I'm kinda done with my YSA (young single adult, ages 18 - 30) ward. It's ran it's course. I love the people there. I know I'm only 28, but I feel the age gap and sometimes the immaturity. I'm done with that. Plus, going to the YSA ward with out Simi makes me miss him more. I feel like I'm the oldest sister there, most of my friends have since married and moved out. I miss them. Last night at the YSA activity everyone there seemed right out of high school or off a mission. I don't want to go to my family ward because it's SO LOUD compared to my YSA ward and I'm pretty sure I'll gain 2 callings my first Sunday there--ward organist & Primary teacher. I'm thinking of the Single Adult ward but it's about 25 min. away. UGH!! Maybe it's something I need to pray about.

To be honest with you...

  • I don't feel like talking much, right now.
  • I'm glad I have this week off.
  • I miss my nephew Simi oh so much. AND HE HASN'T EVEN ENTERED THE MTC YET!! UGH!! TWO YEARS WILL NEVER FLY BY!!!
  • I just want to cry my eyes out.
  • I don't understand how any parent can let their child go so far away with so little communication.
  • I could never be a missionary mom.
  • He was just born yesterday...where has 19 years gone?
  • I think I now understand what it means to have faith. I've wondered who's going to take care of him, who's going to tell him his shirt's wrinkled, who's going to cook for him, who's going to watch out for him, who's going to hug him when the days are rough, who's going to remind him of the little things, etc... But I think I understand now that I need to have faith in a loving Heavenly Father who know's what's BEST for him. I need to have faith that Heavenly Father will take care of him and whatever happens to him, Heavenly Father KNOWS EXACTLY what's going on. This is hard, but I know that this is the most rewarding thing to happen to him right now, at this time in his life.

  • Hurrah for Israel!

    How come...?

    ....some people can't just be happy for you? Why do some people feel the need to rain on another's parade? I don't understand that!? Just because you're bitter or unhappy doesn't mean you need to bring down others.

    Oh well, they'll still just be bitter and cynical in the end. While I, in the meanwhile, will still be ridiculously happy! :)

    The 2 minute recap....for now.

    The date:
    It went really well. I had so much fun!!!! TONS of fun!! We just talked the whole time and I loved it! We talked about ALL sorts of things, which made it so fascinating. At first, when the idea was presented I was apprehensive, but I'm so glad for SA & Stewie's advice...that really helped me have an open mind about this. I totally enjoyed it. I could still be out there talking to him but it was getting late and he had some 4am plans for tomorrow. He kept me laughing the whole time and it was great! I wish he lived closer, I would totally love to get to know him more.
    More details tomorrow...
