Gooooood Morning!! 

Actually, you know what, that is a lie. It's 2 PM right now. It isn't morning at all. Let's try this again!

Gooooood Afternoon!!

Much Better!

This week was a great week! Elder Losee and myself were down in Ottawa on Wednesday, and then we did splits with the Fallowfield Elders! Elder Freeze and Elder Messinger. Actually, funny story, Elder Freeze is from Southern Alberta, then moved to Ottawa when he was younger, and lived there for like 6 years, then he moved back to Alberta, and then he got called to serve in the Montreal mission, which includes Ottawa! Not only that, but he lived in the FALLOWFIELD WARD!!! He is serving in his old ward! How crazy is that?! Pretty crazy, believe you me! Anyways, Elder Freeze came up to Petawawa with me, and Elder Losee stayed down in Fallowfield with Elder Messinger. They had a blast, we had a blast, all in all, it was a huge blast! I have decided though that I don't like doing splits up here in Petawawa. We have a two hour drive to Ottawa, which we would do whether we had splits of not, so that's not a big deal. Then, We have district meeting, which is always tons of fun. Then we have a tow hour drive back. Which is the sucky part. Because by the time you are done lunch, it's like 1:30, 2ish, and then you have a 2 hour drive home, so that makes it 4o'clock ish when you are back, and then you only have 4 hours to work together before you have to have supper and be home for planning. Splits is great because you learn new ways to do work, and you learn now things about the work, but if you aren't doing much work, you don't get to learn a whole lot about new ways to do work, do ya now? Sure, you have tons of time to talk with your companion and to get to know him and about him, but that should only be part of the split, not the whole thing. Anyways, that was my rant. THanks for listening. Sad moment. We found out that some of our friends who were pregnant lost their baby. =( Not good.... We went and ate on base, at the military food court saturday, that was super cool! Super cheep!! Haha, we got in trouble there though. We have a member who is a cashier at the foodcourt, and so she invited us to eat there. We were the last ones in line, but apaprently we got in line AFTER 1:00 and the line was supposed to close at 1. So we got yelled at by the kitchen staff, and then they yelled at our member, and then the three of us laughed about it because, honestly, there isn't a whole lot they can do about it. we were sorry that they were mad, but it was kind of funny too. We had lunch this week at our friends house! The one who's name I'm not supposed to say! The one who I called Voldemort before! So, I was thinking about that actually, and our friend it totally the opposite of Voldemort! So, I thought to myself, who is Voldemort's Character foil? And I came up with Dumbledore. Or Gandalf. I know, I know, it's a different story, it can't really be Voldemort's foil, but they are both old, white haired men, so basically the same, right? Anyways, Gan-dore fed us fajitas. they were delicious. And Elder Losee went and jumped on his trampoline, which really didn't work, because there was like 2 feet of snow on it. Dum-alf got a video on his phone, but it was only 8 seconds long because he takes way to many pictures and videos and has no more space on his phone. =) Anyways, that's about it for me! Have a great week, I don't have any pictures again for two reasons. 1, I left my bag with my camera at a members house. Ooops, 2. I haven't taken any more pictures still... =)
