Emi's Sixteenth Email! June 1st, 2015

Ok, not going to lie. Pretty dang over emailing. Except for those few regulars who fill me in on life, please keep 'em coming. Other than that, think I might just shorten emailing to an hour or something, it's lammeeee.

I can't really remember too much that happened this week.
Ate some pot-pourri thinking it was candy in a Chinese restaurant bathroom. 

Stan and Ellen have disappeared. 

Someone said my glasses looked like their grandma's- got absolutely zero support from my district. They all just laughed. Where's the support?? hah. 

There's a huge Romanian community- where the Bulgs at? But seriously.

Hope that Dennis had a good birthday. We're all getting so old. 

Oh, Peace asked me to hold on to his "hay fever" (allergy) medication for him. Told him I wasn't his mom and he said, "It's alright, you can still take care of me." Oh what a tender spirit, of course I will Peace!

Other than that, figured it was about time for some lingo update!! The jargon here is wack.

Ta- thank you

Plat- braid
Finge- bangs
Take the Mickey (as in Mickey Mouse)- mock/ridicule
Sleeping policeman- speed bumps
Lorry- semi-truck

Estates- neighbourhood
Garden- front/backyard
Torch- flashlight (reallll confusing on that one)

That's good enough for now. Weren't expecting that were you. Oh, they put really good cream on all their cakes. I'm alllll about that. My cake goes swimming in that cream.

Oh and Happy almost b-day to Amber Thorton and Amber Hutchinson!

But yeah. Things are good when you let them be. Just gotta keep trucking on and working to be the best I can be. (Haha Pan's at the library right now). I don't know how people can get by everyday without utilizing the Atonement. I need Christ soooo much everyday in my life and need that strength. That's the urge that we have to share it. But the knowledge and joy that comes with that fact that he lives just makes everyday so much more enjoyable as well. I'm grateful to be in here in Hyde working with Sister Warren and for the trust we can all have in relying on Christ. This church is true. I know it.
Hope you all have a good week!

1) Sister Warren. I can learn so much from her if I let her. Haha, she heart attacked all my stuff. Apparently it's a sister missionary thing to write each other notes. I'm not about that. These things were EVERYWHERE. Told her it  was kinda creepy haha
