Dodgeball Anyone?

I was so excited to find out on Sunday that we were going to play dodge ball on Wednesday for our activity. Wednesday came and I found out that my new cute branch is very serious about dodge ball and they play quite regularly. It was so much fun. Even the branch president and his counselors and two of the wives came and played. At first no one would throw the ball at me...I am the new girl. So I could be sneaky and get them out. Then of the counselors (so intense and competitive, I love it) caught on and got everyone to gang up on me. I dodged 7 balls one right after another and the 8th one got my hand. I put my cat like reflexes to use. Everyone cheered for me as I was dodging them. It was quite exciting. Towards the end some of them were saying get the new girl...that will be my name until someone new comes. The Relief Society Pres and I were the only girls who came to play besides the wives. Then I saw her today at the gym and we worked out together...I think she might be my new best friend!! By the way my team went 5 and 2...pretty good. When we were all done the treat was a fat boy...big ole ice cream was like Christmas for all the boys they were so excited. Then Wally came up to me and said Welcome to Blackfoot..were all about dodge ball and fat boys. I thought they were all about potatoes, cow manure ( I live right by a cow auction) and trucks. I have never seen so many trucks in my life. Anyways I think I might turn into a professional dodge baller!!

Another one bites the dust!!

So I had a bit of an accident two days ago. My cousin Scott and I have been going to the gym at 7:30 am for a little work out. As I was getting into the car my foot hit the edge of the drive way and rolled as I went to the ground my knee (on the other leg) slammed into the cement. As I laid there is a little bit of pain I rolled over to see my cousin Scott looking out through the passenger window wondering where I went. He came over to me and I was laughing and crying and ticked off because I have been doing so well with going to the gym. Needless to say he helped me up and got me inside..I iced both the ankle and the knee and took some much needed Ibuprofen. They are both swollen...but nothing too serious. I will be back in the gym on Monday.
I am such a clutz. Of course I blamed Scott for parking so close to the edge of the driveway..he was a good two feet away. He went and made a spot for his car in the garage so this won't happen again. I just now have to look out for the big wheels.

My New YSA Branch!!

My YSA branch totally meets in a Mortuary. How hilarious. Church in only 2 1/2 hours long...gotta love it. The Relief Society president noticed that there one piano player wasn't there so I saw all the hopes in her eyes when she asked me if I could play the piano....of course I said I would be a treasure if I could say yes right now. I am so silly. Then I commented in Sunday school...really good teacher. I was talking about my decision to come here and I started to cry and I said good thing I am crying here I saw about 800 kleenex boxes on the rows. everyone laughed then someone handed me a box and I said I am taking the whole box because there is no shortage here. I am such an dork. The first two rows of Relief society and sacrament are the big ole nice couches you could fall asleep on those babies. Gotta love Blackfoot!!!

I'm a Idahoan!!!

I made the trek to Blackfoot!! My car made it....I made it barely...Got a little stir crazy towards the end!! I am getting used to my new environment in Blackfoot, Idaho....Culture shock..Just Kidding! I took some funny pictures of myself while driving...Well I think they are funny. I will post them when I get a chance to download. I still need to fully unload the black whole that is my car. I hate unpacking. I hope you all are doing well and you are not missing me too much!!
