wednesday- 4 miles on TM +abs
Yesterday my run really sucked. Literally. UT elevation always kills me when I get back from vacation. Every step felt so difficult. Okay, some of it I can blame on jet lag. I thought I was doing pretty good until I woke up at 3am and couldn’t back to sleep. So ya maybe my run wasn’t so great because I had already been up for several hours ha I’m looking forward to my workout today, bad runs/workouts are always followed by good ones(:
My brother in law Jared, MIL, SIL, and FIL were all coming home from SIngapore yesterday(they stayed an extra 2 days) and so we met them at the airport. When a missionary gets home, it’s pretty common for family members and family to meet them at the airport with signs and balloons. In UT there’s always a huge crowd since there’s usually a group that come home together/leave together etc. We had the boys hold the signs to finally welcome him home.
After, we went over to my in laws where me and Whit(we both got home from Singapore on Monday) made Jared’s request: mashed potatoes, roast, and rolls. I did attempt gravy but it was so disgusting I threw it away. Mom, please teach me your gravy ways.
The boys warmed up to Jared and by the end of the night they were begging him to wrestle and showing him how to color(:
While you serve a mission you are ‘called’ to be a missionary and there’s certain rules and guidelines you follow for 1.5(for girls) or 2(for boys) years. Once your mission is done, you get to be released from your calling by a member of the presidency of the church(stake president). It was a really spiritual thing to be a part of. We’re so proud of you Jared!
