One of those nights...

You know when you have those nights when you're a little haunted by the ghost of the past? Yes, I'm having one now. Perhaps it's because I just watched I Am Legend with Elise and Jeff (including the ultra-stupid alternate ending, which made me so glad they went with the theatrical one) and it has me in an eerie mood. Anyway, I relearned that when you're in a weird funk like that, the best thing to do is to eliminate the elements that might cause you to feel like that, and, if possible and necessary, do what it takes to replace them.

I also felt particularly sensitive to the Spirit tonight. Hurrah for the Holy Ghost. What WOULD we do without Him? I'm just tired. A nice Sabbath Day would do me good.

In other news, I volunteered at the MTC today (for the elders learning Hmong to have people to teach in mock appointments). I remember how annoying it was when we went to teach and there weren't enough volunteers. It was such a trip to be back there, on the other side of the mission. This time of year two years ago I was getting ready (and ever so anxious) to head to Wisconsin. Ever ironic as it sounds, the elders never looked younger.


  1. This is exactly the reasons that I can't watch scary movies. It follows me for days after that. Hope that you are feeling better today!

  2. Shouldn't that be "hmock" appointments? ;)

  3. Ha ha Doug! I hate when the past comes to haunt. I have had that happen oh so many times. Sometimes you just have to pray extra hard or you will be sucked down. Which is lame. Anyway, you are very brave and strong Drew, you can over come such silly things.

    In other news, yes. I am Legend was super crazy. I hate those kinds of movies. Booooo.
