I like oatmeal, so that's big news :)

My week has been good! I like oatmeal, so that's big news. :) haha

My healthy breakfast with oatmeal
Remember how I used to love car washes? Not anymore, the ones out here are awful and terrifying.

We went to zone conference on Wednesday. It was so good! I love zone conference. I always learn so much and it's good to see the Packard's. I also love being around other missionaries.

A lot of people here live in apartment complexes or three apartment homes. One of the ladies in our ward lives on the top floor of her apartment home. She is so funny. A woman at her work stole her car in February, she just barely reported it to the police. The woman who stole her car is on parole for breaking into homes. The member in our ward is terrified that she is going to break into her house and she will have no way out so she tied a rope off the side of her three story apartment complex. It is nowhere close to touching the ground, we had to convince her not to practice scaling the building. :) I love it here! I hope I never leave, the people here are hilarious and I love them so much. :)

So, I really did not want to pay money to see a doctor for something silly like a headache.. Then we were reading out of the white handbook the day after I decided this and it's says to not delay medical treatment, even to save money. Dang it! I have to be exactly obedient. The blessing came when I called the Dr and he said he would see me for free. :) He is an ear, nose, and throat specialist.  Good news is, I don't have an ear infection.  Bad news is, he is not sure what is causing my massive headache.  So I have been icing and heating my neck and shoulders.  Slowly, but surely, it will go away I think. :)

It poured all day Friday, it was awesome.

We have two new investigators. :) They are fantastic. Our investigator was baptized on Sunday, she is so awesome. We just came from a lesson with her, I am so proud of her. She does not have a great home life, but Christ is so important to her. I look up to her a lot.

We were going to go watch the Patriot's practice, but the elders bailed on us. It was a super bummer. How cool would that have been!? So instead, we went for a walk on a bike trail near by.  It was beautiful. I have pictures. :) I didn't get any ticks!

(sorry I couldn't get pic to rotate :( boo!)

We got to travel to Plymouth on Tuesday to train some sisters. It was a lot of fun!

Sister Bailey and Sister Kendall

We cleaned a hoarders house. :) This was a real life, nasty hoarder home.  We started in the kids room and the layer of bugs, food, and trash was so thick that we couldn't see the ground.  The family has 12 kids, of course destruction is unavoidable, but oh man. We spent four hours cleaning, it looked so good after!

I got to go see Kelly and the kids. :) they gave me some veggies from their garden along with some other great things.

Some of the sisters are having a really hard time being out here on their missions. I have not hit that hump yet, I love it so much. I miss you guys, but I can't imagine being anywhere else right now. I can't believe it's already almost been six months. I can definitely do what I have done two more times. It is going to fly by! It is crazy to think that last year was my first year in college. Who knew I'd be in Rhode Island a year later! :) What the what?  I think I am eating well.  I am trying too, I definitely won't go hungry. :) I did get a new shirt and skirt. I will be sending a picture of it. :) One of the zippers on my skirts broke.. Dang.

New clothes!
