Amazing..... It is 2015 and I am barely getting used to it being 2014.

We decided that we had better keep the office open all week this week but that we didn't need three couples there each day to handle things. So we worked a half day on New Years Day and a half day the next day. The other couples took turns taking a day off and working the other half of our day. Roger thought that we would get some good surfing in during the morning hours and then go to the office but only one day the waves were good. Friday he said that the ocean looked like a lake. It was a little awkward on Thursday. Roger decided to go do some things in one of the new apartments for a new senior couple which left me in the office by myself. That was all good and fine until the elders came by to do things in the office. We then realized that I couldn't be there in the same office with the elders without another man in the office. So I had to go outside while they came in and did their stuff. The rules are there for good reasons but sometimes it makes things so hard. I love these missionaries though. They are exactly obedient and want to obey all of the rules.

gave me for Christmas! Ahhh!
We are planning on taking a day off this week when Kirk and Tiffany come with their kids for a few days. It will be fun to show them our little home away from home. They will be staying in Old Town so we can show them around the Mormon Battalion and the little shops. We may have to eat some good Mexican food.
Our little scripture class is usually on Wednesday and this week Wednesday happened to be on New Year's Eve. We really thought that no one would want to still come but when we offered to have a short thought and then we would play some games we got some takers. So we went to Carol's home had a fun time enjoying each other's company playing together. We played until 10:00 and decided that it was the New Year somewhere and that was good enough. We had to be at the office the next day so we went home and went to bed. Kinda boring, I know. But we had a good time.
The weather this week has been a bit sketchy. I keep looking at my Utah weather guide on my phone so that I can keep things in perspective. It has rained and been quite cold for little San Diego. It has actually gotten below 40 at night two nights in a row and only highs in the high 50's. We are getting more normal weather for San Diego now - high 40's at night and 60's during the days with mostly sunny days. But looking at what Utah is doing right now helps me stay warmer!

None of us who have served ever will be. It is a life changing experience. We are so grateful to be able to do this and for your love and support of us. Bring on the new year!
