New Carpets 9/16/2013

So this week went ok. I am starting to try to lose weight.  I have been replacing meals with Dad's shake and drinking tons of water.  I made a shake today with a banana and the powder, but it had spinach in it.  It wasn't as good as the normal banana one but probably healthier. I was in Elk River earlier in the week. Went on an exchange with Elder Sieler and picked up a Montana accent!  He has a pretty good accent, it is funny.  He was actually Elder Weatherford's MTC companion, so we talked about that a little bit. It was good. Their area is hard!  I was being really bold with people on the exchange and nothing came out of it. They don't teach Gospel lessons much in Elk River and that's gotta change. I don't know what the key is there. We also had New Missionary Training Wednesday where we had the fun opportunity to wake up early and drive down to Bloomington and participate in that. It was good, all the Trainers and their Companions were there. I saw some people I knew.  Elder Crandall is a pretty legit hmong missionary.  He is going home that is the last time I see him!  It was good.  We were there for forever though.
       I love missionary work so much, I don't think I like missionaries that much. There are some funny one's.  It is just interesting.  Elder Tubbs I think has been sheltered from the world.  He is so surprised that so many people smoke or drink. I think lots of missionaries are like that.
      Ohhh funny story. We were at this park last night and we talked to these guys who were about my age they actually reminded me of my friends. They were pretty funny. We were just talking to them about stuff. Found out they drank every weekend. A few of this group had kids. One was going to Jail for about a year in October for stealing 5g worth of stuff. Then they commented, "like man sorry we are probably tainting you guys or something".  Elder Tubbs replied "Well, actually I used to be pretty wild and rebellious". And he was dead serious.   The guy who was going to prison laughed, "Oh I am sure"!  We all started laughing, I was laughing pretty hard as He thought he did some crazy stuff. Elder Tubbs told them how he threw this little tv off of a bridge in the middle of nowhere and then they threw rocks at it when it was on the ground. The guy who was going to prison said "... pretty crazy".  It was super funny.  Elder Tubbs is the guy who you could tell is Mormon if he was in normal clothes.  His favorite word is 'goodness'. So that was really funny. We are driving around a ton cause this week we have exchanges with the assistants in Bloomington. The next day we go to a training up in St. Cloud.  Bloomington is twice as far from St. Cloud as Princeton. ... With Ap's... Hopefully it will be good. We are wrecked for on our miles. Hey how the heck do you get a tubeless stem out of my wheel.  My tire went flat, I went to put a tube in and I don't know how to get the old stem out. 
     The Sisters in the District set a date with a 12 year old last night. I got Debi an Ecig Laniard so she will always have it with her. 
     Oh man Wednesday we got a call from the landlord she said new carpets were coming Monday and that everything had to be out. We have so much crap in our apartment. So we did that Saturday morning with 2 guys from the Ward. We had to literally get everything off the carpet so our closet shelfs are filled and our kitchen has tons of stuff in it. We get to move everything back in tonight. But our carpet is nasty, it is as old as the apartment so the new carpet will be worth it. So that is pretty fun. We have taught some new people and had some cool experiences happen. Taught a lady the restoration while helping her do a puzzle. She was Catholic. We also taught a really sincere lady who has had 9 back surgeries because she had domestic abuse after the first one. We see her tomorow. She was cool. I am not sure what to do hey transfers are in 2 weeks!  Wish me luck.  I'm training but ya never know!  Well that is it with me.   wbu?   guys?
