Yay for hot water!

We finally have a working hot water heater! Yay!! The Saturday before last, 10 days ago, our hot water heater broke. They couldn't order the new part until Monday. It didn't get here until Wednesday (5 days later). They part they sent was broken...grr. So they ordered another new part which arrived Friday. Even with that part, the water heater still didn't work. My mother was so fed up. Instead of ordering a different part to fix it, we decided to just get a whole new one and it came today!! We have all been showering at our bishop's house that is just around the corner. It will be nice to just be able to shower in my own house again! Yay!

Back in Jersey

I arived back in New Jersey about two weeks ago. My lovely roomie gave me her cold as her going away present for me...yay. A cold and an airplane don't go very well together. It gave me an ear infection. A half an hour before landing, i felt like my left ear exploded. It hurt so bad! And I couldn't hear out of that ear for the next two days.
Its great to be home again. I missed my family so much! I missed Patrick a lot too! When I got home, Paul wouldn't let me in the front door. He insisted that i go around back. I was in a terrible mood cause it was 90 degrees and i was in sweats and i was feeling really sick. I finally made it in the house and my mom wisked me into her room to tell me the schedule for the week and doctor appointments ect. Then Will told me to go in his room.. I thought he wanted to show me something stupid. i didn't suspect anything, until he told me to hang up a shirt in his closet for him and the whole family came into watch! They had Patrick hiding in the closet. They are such dorks! It was so funny! I am shocked he went along with them and went in the closet.
I started back at work too. Its great to have an income, but i am getting sick of wawa and all the drama that goes along with it. People there just love to talk about everyone else and spread rumors. I just don't want to deal with it anymore. I will be starting a new job tuesdays. It is in addition to wawa. Tuesdays and Fridays I will be going to my grandmother's to help her out. Take her to doctor's, grocery store, do cleaning for her ect. Its only 5 hours two days a week. It will be a great opportunity to spend time with her. Yesterday I went to Patrick's Uncle's funeral. It makes me think a lot about the time that i have and how i spend it. You never know whenever something will happen.
