Vargas Family Values

Gettin' Antsy!

Really missing home today, we only have a few days left now, so I'm hoping the MTV production is wrapping-up. I love staying with Miguel and Greg - they've been so nice to us, they hardly let me cook, and they are really good cooks. Yesterday I cleaned the stove top for them, they were amazed and I was really happy I could do something that made them happy.

I heard today that a former bishop of ours is fighting colon cancer, that saddened me greatly. I'm sorry he's had to suffer so much, life is tough enough without colon cancer!

Since we've been here Miguel was layed-off from his job and is having a difficult time finding work. We are really praying for his success in scoring in the job market.

I'm anxious to go to church this Sunday because it's my day to teach Relief Society. I love teaching and am happy to do it. It's really been hard commuting to church. This past Sunday Miguel and I went to his ward which is the Studio City Ward. They were not friendly, but I did enjoy their testimony meeting. Miguel didn't approve of the testimonies because he said it bugs him because members don't know what comprises a testimony. I know what he means, but I still enjoyed the meeting, especially having the opportunity to partake of the Sacrament.

Sabbath Day

I'm just draggin' along over here. I think I'm depressed because I know I'm homesick! I can hardly wait to go home. I think I'm definitely going to appreciate our home more from now on.

Went to the Studio City Ward Sacrameeting meeting today with Miguel. I thought it was nice, it was testimony Sunday so we heard lots of stories.

Our bath tub has been plugged up ever since we came. It's water up to your ankles when you take a shower in it. Well, yesterday Miguel's landlord came and poured some acid down it. Didn't help at all - typical male, thinks anything is better than doing the right thing, it just needs to be snaked out!

It was hot - again today, waiting for the weather to take a cool turn. I worked on my genealogy today along with watching the "House" marathon on the USA channel and playing my Tony Hawk Pro-Skater 3 video game. Got very bored. Cooked a roast with all the fixins', but we didn't eat until 9:45 PM when Tony got home from church. Sometimes I feel like a widow!
