I have to thank my mom for the millionth time on here. She came down for my surgery and was so supportive. She stayed for about two weeks! I'm so grateful for her- I really have no idea what I would have done without here. And, because I was having such a hard time with the recovery my mom bought me the cutest sandals ever!! Pictured below... I wore them yesterday for church- I LOVE THEM! Thanks mom =)
Seriously, she rocks.
So my surgery was right before our week long spring break- which I was so grateful to have. I don't know what I would have done about school if we'd had it. And, a week after my surgery on Easter Sunday I had to speak. It went pretty well other than the my extremely pale face, the fact that I had to sit because standing was just no an option unless they were okay with me passing out, my occasionally/involuntarily crossed eyes (just kidding), falling asleep a couple times on the stand before and after my talk, and a few mixed up facts due to the dope I was on.... Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a tiny bit... but really, not too much to be honest.
I am currently recovering speedily, feeling better and better everyday, and doing extremely well with physical therapy (I'm a week ahead of schedule- thank goodness for that competitive Allen spirit I've got). Oh, and thank goodness for priesthood blessings- I'm so gratefull to have so many amazing worthy priesthood holders in my life.
..almost there- yeah, right.
I thought this picture really captured the ridiculous amount of wind that I was trying to collect this string in! It was insane. I was still in my church clothes- meaning skirt- and you can only imagine how much fun that was ;).
The lovely collection of string that I was acquiring... I still have ton of it.
So, I didn't really get the last note...
...but, it's the thought that counts right?
Because I didn't really know where he was headed with that last note, I kind of had a hard time thinking of how I would reply. But, with the help of my awesome girl Neshia I was inspired! She said I could respond with like some sort of scripture and found the perfect one. I hope he caught the humor in it, and knowing Dallon I'm sure he did. Not that I'm trying to make a mock of the scriptures or anything!
(above) That is what I did! He is in the other seminary class so I decided I would tie up his scriptures with some of the string that he provided me with and have him find the answer in the " Book of Righteousness".
In case you can't read the note, it says: All the answers are in the Book of Righteousness.
...with the reference to Doctrine and Covenants 9:8
and for all of you who are like me and dont' have that memorized it reads:
But, behold, I say unto you that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right.
Neshia also had a really cute idea for her response. The guy who asked her is a thrower for the track team and since Josey is the head coach we got a disc and a shot that she put cute notes on and left in his 1st period class today. The discus said " Discus gonna be a blast!!" and the shot said " Let's give it a shot!!"
I totally loved how cute all of this was. I've never even heard of people doing this kind of thing in real-life. Well, not in MT at least. Last year I was casually asked to prom on the phone- not that I didn't have a good time anyways, and since I grew up in Lewistown I didn't really expect anything different. So this whole thing was just so original and creative! I thought this whole experience was just too cute.
Also, Dallon actually lived in MT his 7th- 9th grade years and remembers a bunch of people from the Greatfalls/Fairfield/Augusta area. AND, his mom went to high school with my mom in Ronan- she was actually in my Uncle Chuck's class. It's such a small world- and that's probably in part because we're talking about Montana and Wyoming here ;).
4). Prom is this upcoming weekend so stay tuned!!!
