I am so grateful that it is Monday. Glad for a fresh start.This has been one tough week haha.
Every single lesson we had set this week canceled. We managed to teach only 6 lessons this week.. I haven't done that bad since my greenie area. Not the hugest fan of this past week haha.
I think the only good thing about the week was that we put up a ton of Christmas decorations in our apartment! It looks super cute. We put up flowers and candles on our table..
We decorated our front door. .
And we found these really cute elfs at the dollar tree haha.
We made a paper tree for our bedroom door, with a countdown to Christmas over it and a chain with 183 links around the apartment.
Its super festive and a bit much, but it makes us happy whenever we look at it, so its totally worth it :)
I'm going on exchanges tomorrow night. Sister Brooks will go to the STL's area, and me and sister harker will stay in Maplewood, with S. Mataitusi. Did I mention that she is my STL? Im so looking forward to exchanges, its going to be a blast to be with her again, even though its only a day.
S.Brooks goes home in 7 days. Ah! That is weird, knowing that I will be the next one to go home after her. Although I am still working as hard as I can, I'm ready to be home. I think its probably especially hard since its the holidays. but I'm kind of just done with the whole experience. I feel bad admitting that, since I've loved my mission, and I have learned and grown so much, but again home seems like a great place to be.
