Sorry, I don't have like any time left to read/respond to your email! I'll mark it as unread, and it'll be the first thing I do next week! Let Dad know for me as well. It's Elder Hixon's last day, so we've been running around all day saying goodbye to people. For my blog post, you can just say that I'll be staying here in this area for at least another 6 weeks, and this time tomorrow, I'll have another companion. We had our baptism for Paola on Thursday and she was confirmed yesterday, and we ended Elder Hixon's mission with a weekly record of 44 lessons.
Q&A with Elder Groesbeck (questions by Mark Groesbeck, his dad)
1. Where do you wash your clothes?
We wash them at a laundromat semi-close to our house
2. Have you washed your sheets yet?
I literally wouldn't be able to carry all of my clothes and a bunch of sheets to a laundromat. So no.
3. What is the weirdest pet you have seen?
We saw a dog that had a big old tumor on its chin, and it just looks plain weird... Nothing too crazy in terms of specific types of animals for pets, though.
4. Have any dogs caught you yet?
Elder Hixon has had some pretty close (and utterly hilarious) calls with them. He's a lot more afraid of dogs than I am, so he usually runs from them, making them want to chase him more. I usually just try to pet them.
5. Have you seen any bouncing cars (with hydraulics)?
There are some pretty crazy taxis with tons of lights all over them, but I haven't seen the Napoleon Dynamite hydraulics car yet.
6. What was the best meal you have been served?
I absolutely love enchiladas verdes (simple elegance) with strawberries and cream for dessert.
7. What is funniest thing you have done on a p-day?
Play soccer with the young men of our ward. I'm apparently not bad at defense, but that's just because I'm not afraid to take a ball (or 6) to the face, stomach, shoulder, leg, and various other bodily extremities. It hurt, but it was totally worth it.
8. Once you get to 100 pushups will you keep going with a new companion?
We did 100 pushups this morning, and I'm most certainly not going to keep going. I need to work out other stuff than my arms, so I'll be doing a more all-around workout in the mornings.
9. Or will you next start with sit-ups working up to 100?
I just might do that... I don't know, I haven't really thought about it. Elder Hixon and Elder Guerra are leaving me with some of their workout stuff, so I'll probably use that.
10. How many recipes have you collected?
I actually haven't collected any. I think when I leave and can figure out what my favorite foods are I'll get some to bring them home.
