gotta love my coke)
 After a thorough conversation with Sister Snow one meeting, we came to the conclusion that I think waaaay too deep sometimes.  I was telling her that sometimes I give myself an entire hour to just sit at my desk, prop my legs up, and think.  We realized I had a problem.  And that's where most of my headaches were probably coming from.  So, for my email this week, I present my solution!  

I made up a couple new songs while we worked this week:)

to the tune of "Part of your World"

I wanna be where the Americans are
I wanna see, wanna see them speaking English
Eating burritos and being able to drink....what's it called..... miiiiiiiilk!

Up where they drive,
Up where they ride,
Up where they stay all day in air connnnnnn! (that's air conditioning in Tagalog)

Wanderin' free,
Someday I'll be,
doesn't it look like such an american breakfast!
Part of their worrrrrrrrld (again)

to the tune of "Grandma got run over by a Reindeer"

Sister Taylor almost got run over by a bus
Walking out to their work one hot dayy!
You can say she's got real quick reflexes,
Cause as for her companion, she just stareeeeeeed

to the tune of "You Belong with Me"

I'm on the phone with our zone leader,
he's upset.
He's going on about something I don't get.
But that's okay,
Cause it's our P-day tomorrow.

the only picture i got after the typhoon.
at the chapel a couple days after
We wear long skirts, they wear white shirts
They fight for high stats and I just forget it,
Thinkin' bout the day where I'll go home and find that all my friends I left,
All have jobs, and wives, and kids....

Can't they see that we've been walking in a high flood,
Punted all day
Can't they just let us iinnnnnn,
Your house is biiiiig,
and I have to pee.

That's all I've got.
Just take me and send me to Nashville!

THIS is the Garcia fam)
Also, yesterday the Garcia family was supposed to be baptized...  But their family still hasn't changed their mind, and so just one of them, Edmar, was baptized.  But at the same time, Edmar was finally BAPTIZED!  He stood up to bear his testimony and starting crying so hard nothing came out, so after a couple of minutes, he just sat back down again.  I LOVE SEEING PEOPLE I LOVE BE BAPTIZED!

zone conference last month
(while typhoon glenda was happening)
Funny Story: First. I don't think this story is very funny.  I'm scarred for life.  But everyone else I tell it to seems to find it funny when I tell them.  So.  Sometimes we pull down all the mattresses in our apartment downstairs and sleep on the floor because it's way too hot upstairs at night.  We were all sleeping in a row one night, and the lights might have been off for about 15 minutes and I was just about to fall asleep.  Then my leg was a little itchy.  Lots of mosquitoes are normal at night so I scratched my leg and turned over.  Then I felt something again on my arm.  By this point I'm awake, move my head, and then I hear a little scuttle across my pillow.  I sit straight up on my bed and see all these cockroaches scatter off my bed (and body) into the darkness.  BIG heart attack.  I'm screaming, climbing on top of our kitchen table, everyone is waking up.  And my companion is running around with my flip flop, killing the cockroaches like we usually kill ants.  I don't know if it was because I was so tired, or still half asleep, or just really scared, but I started crying.  Standing on top of the kitchen table, in a muimui dress, crying and laughing at the same time while there are smashed cockroaches all over the floor.  Now I have this overwhelming fear of sleeping on the floor.
