Happy Birthday Zack!
How's it going?
I hope I have an awesome day tomorrow too. So far, from what we've planned, it looks good. A new member decided to buy us lunch tomorrow because it's my birthday. Then we'll probably knock on some doors for about an hour. Then we'll try and visit a few people. Then after that we have correlation meeting and the ward mission leader, Bro. Berry, usually feeds us a good meal. So I think that means that we might postpone my birthday dinner till Friday. Haven't decided where we're going to go for dinner. I'm thinking either Italian or Chinese. I have till Friday so I'll figure it out later.
Your racket ball posse has grown quite a bit. I think you might be able to start your own club pretty soon.
We had quite an adventure today. This morning the Blackwood Elders picked us up and we went and played basketball like on every other P-day. After basketball we decided to go pick up our dry cleaning. However, on our way out right as I locked and closed the door I realized that I had left my keys and the phone and my wallet inside. "DOH!" Elder Draper had assumed that I had my keys so he didn't have his keys either. So we got locked out of our appartment. We tried to knock on the landlords door but no one was home. We tried to find a way to climb up and get on the roof to get in but none of the trees were sturdy enough. Then we tried to 'card' the door but the weathering strip was too thick so that didn't work. Then we started to ask the neighbors if we could borrow a ladder so we could break in to our house. They didn't know us very well so they thought we were just a couple of kids trying to break into someone elses house. So that didn't work. Then we went to the nearest member's house to see if we could borrow their ladder or if they didn't have one at least we could call someone who did have one we could borrow. Sadly none of the members that were close by were home. So then we were trying to put our minds together to try to figure out how we can get back in our house. We were close to a Walmart so we decided to go and get some tools. Luckily Elder Draper had his wallet with him so he bought a ladder and a flat-head screwdriver. Then we walked all the way back home. We walked about 4 miles today (or felt like it). We were dead tired when we got back. We had played basketball for 2 and 1/2 hours and then walked 4 miles, 2 of those miles we were carrying a ladder. So we got back to the apartment and I climbed up on the roof. I found a window that was unlocked and I opened it. I had to bust the screen, but its better than breaking down the door. Afterwards I passed out for about an hour on my bed and then we got our showers and went about to finish our errands. So now I can say that I've broken into a house before. Luckily the window was right by a tree so the damaged screen isn't noticable unless you look for it. We're going to replace it by the beginning of next month before anyone notices.
Oh and I had to buy a bike a few days ago at Walmart. My other bike broke. I was trying to pedal accross an intersection and my chain broke as well as my derailer. I took it to the shop and they said that it would be about 80 dollars to fix. I didn't think it was worth it to spend that much money on an old bike that has been used for who knows how long. So we went and I got a new bike from walmart with a warranty for about 80 dollars.
I got your package today! Thank you very much! The pants fit perfect. I'm wearing a pair as I type. I already ate the croissants. They were way good! Elder Draper got some water balloons for his birthday as well so I think we might have to have a water balloon fight next week. Thanks for the Birthday card as well. And thank you for the riding gloves. I was thinking of buying some earlier, but didn't have the money. Looks like I don't have to buy them after all!
Well we gotta go get our laundry.
Love you tons!
