Well I can't believe that another week has already gone by and that in just two short days we will already been heading into June! It's crazy how the time flys. This week has been pretty busy. Mostly with trying to get things ready for girls camp. My goal this week was to get the t shirts all finished. And I finally found someone to screen print for fairly cheep, and I dropped the shirts off to him yesterday. I am so glad that I don't have to worry about getting those done now. The next thing on my list is to go to the church and get all of the tents we will be taking to camp, and bring them home and set them all up so I can make sure that they all have everything they need. I think I am going to try and get this done today as soon as I get off work. I am hoping that they all have all of the parts. We haven't used these tents in over four years because we have been very blessed to go to Heber Valley and use cabins! It is much easier that way. I never really realized how much work goes into a girls camp. Actually I take that back, until my mom was put in as president I never knew. It is so crazy. As a young woman I would have never thought that it was so much work. And now that I am a leader I realize how hard it is. But it is so worth it and I am so glad that I serve in this amazing calling. My mom is an amazing person. She has done this for years and I don't know how she keeps on doing it. But she loves it. Anyway hopefully I will get the tent situation taken care of today. Then I will probably get another job to accomplish before the big day. (June 14th) I am excited for girls camp but it will definitely be a lot of work. It is hard too when you only have ten girls going. I remember there being more like thirty or so when I went. Crazy how time fly's. This week is also a busy one because my little bro is graduating. I am so proud of him. He is amazing! He also just got a new job at primary childrens hospital. He is freakin amazing. And he is only 18! Well anyway... I hope you all have a great week!
I know I am terrible at writing. I'm sorry. I will really try to do better. This past couple weeks has been pretty crazy! I had my wisdom teeth out, and that actually went better than I had expected. I think I ended up having more pain in my arm than my mouth. Okay that is probably not totally true. But when I went in the lady started putting in the IV. I felt the pinch and it was fine. The next thing I know she is starting to pump the medicine in. It wasn't to bad for a few minutes, and then I started to feel it pinching! I tolerate pain really well so I wasn't worried about it and I didn't think there was anything wrong because it has been years since I had an IV. So I just said, "its kind of pinching a little." Then she said, "oh it is?" then i said, " yeah but don't worry its fine no big deal." So she just went on her way. A few minutes later she says, "are you not getting sleepy yet?" and i said, "no, not really (wide awake lol), but my arm is asleep, and numb." So then the doctor came in and said, "oh thats not in the vein!" Lovely! lol So they proceeded to poke me three more times until they finally found a vein that would work. It was actually pretty funny and I really didn't mind. But the next thing that I remember was sitting on my couch. That didn't turn out to well either. I got home and my Mom gave me the pain pill and i proceeded to lose whatever was in my stomach. It was kind of a rough experience, but after that it really wasn't to bad. I am pretty much back to eating normally now, thank goodness. And I am really thankful that my Mom took such good care of me. So that was last week. A lot of nothing has gone on since school got out. I am glad that I am done with school for two years. It takes a lot off my plate. I now just need to work on finding another job, so I can earn money for a mission. I am still really excited, scared, and nervous about my decision to go on a mission. But I know that it is what I am supposed to do, and I am very excited. It is weird that my little brother has already finished his papers, and will be turning them in at the end of June! I never thought that we would grow up. It has been very strange, but good at the same time. I also got a new cousin this past week! She is the cutest little thing ever. Her name is Clara, and Brenna and Emery adore her. Brand and Mer are doing good now that they are settled with everything. Brenna and Emery have been spending a lot of time with my family, which I love. Brenna is my little buddy. Its funny because I was always brands little buddy and hung out with him all the time, so it is fun to do the same with Brenna. Well anyway I think I have blabbed on enough lol. Thanks for reading. Oh and Bonnie I am not sure but I think I might have fixed my blog so you can comment now. Try it and see if it works and you can let me know. Thanks! -Katee
