countdown continuation

in consequence of not having blogged now for at least a couple weeks, i have now consolidated my countdown to just one blog for all the lost time, so i can catch up.

here is what i've been doing for the past little bit, in "preparation" for school:

31 DAYS.... i did a little cleaning/ organizing of my room in anticipation of leaving. and to prep myself for packing, which i have done none of yet (as of sunday august 16th).

30-22 days: this was when i was up in Lake Winnepesauke, it was so much fun!

21-16 days: ugh, i started work again, after being gone for a week. that was painful. why is it that when you get your body out of it's "regular" sleep schedule, it is so painfully difficult to get it back to what you thought it was origionally?

15-11 days to go: we went to a baptism on friday of a boy in one of the somerville wards. it was so nice, and so much fun to be there. one of the families in belmont hosted a pool party afterward, which was also a lot of fun. these past couple weeks especially have been very sad because i've been saying goodbyes to everyone. friday night was especially sad because it was my last time with alot of leaders and people in the stake that i won't be able to see much anymore.
another highlight of this week was making a certain purchase to which i am very excited about! it made a heavy dent in my wallet, but it's already been well worth the buy, and i am sure it will become even more so in the future! i think it will make this blog so much more interesting too.

10 -9 days will have their own separate posts in the future. but to calm the curiosity that i'm sure you're feeling right now, regarding what i did for these 2 days (because of course you have nothing better to do than to sit around all day, wondering what i'm doing right?) i will let you in on the activities of the days. yesterday, we headed out to york beach in maine in the a.m. and walked around and such for a while. it is so fun and cute up there, but it was HOT! i also went babysitting that night too, which was fun, and oh so easy! then today, i visited arlington for my final good bye with the arlingtoners. wow, that ward has changed!! i went up for the temple after for a few minutes, but that part is for a later blog.

catch y'all later!
