In the morning I didn't feel as comfortable as I did the first 2 mornings, so I got up. Jimmy told me we were maybe going to go into the mountains where they were all white from snow and go hiking or something. He said he would have to take his aunt's car to Brother Adam's work and get his truck, then take that to Brother Wade's work and get his truck and we would use that. So after he went to his aunt's car, he came back and said it had a flat tire. He took his car, regardless of the bad brakes and got some milk for cereal. He had Matt and me help him clean up the house because they have church there. Soon his dad (Brother Jon) came and they got the car to Les Schwab to change the tires, so Jimmy took Matt and me to Brother Jason's house in his car with the bad brakes. Then he went back to his aunt's house to wait for the phone call about the car. Brother Jason wasn't there, and Sister Donna was at work. Only my family was there. I found out that Brother Jason's battery in his car went dead, so his car was at Les Schwab too and both he, Jimmy, and Brother Jon were there. My dad went to go help. Sister Donna came home and found out about the car troubles with both cars, and we waited until they came back. I went and found out that the keyboard was hooked wrong to the computer, but that wasn't the only problem. The midi device was set wrong and it took about 1-2 seconds for the computer to realize I pressed a note on the keyboard. I fixed it and there was no delay when you hit a note :) Brother Jason came back and he and Sister Donna were very grateful that I fixed it, but she had to lay down because she wasn't feeling well. Andrea was getting her hair highlighted by Sister Cora and Sister Teresa at Sister Cora's house. We had plans to have dinner at Jimmy's parent's house. Jimmy took Matt and Ben to Sister Cora's house because they would rather watch a movie there than visit at Brother Jon and Sister Pat's. So the only one's left at Brother Jason's house were him, his wife (Sister Donna), my mom, and me. When we were ready, Brother Jason went to check on Sister Donna. He came out and said she wanted to lay down for 15 more minutes, so he called Sister Pat and told her. After 20 minutes he went back to her and came out saying she wasn't going to go and that he would stay and take care of her, so only my mom and I were going. As he showed my mom the minivan and explained how to get to Brother Jon and Sister Pat's place, I went into the room where Sister Donna was laying down and her back was to me. She was all bundled up. I said her name softly as to not scare her. She didn't answer. I figured she was asleep. Then she turned and faced me, her eyes were red. I told her I hope she feels better and she said "Thank you Jason". Then I said that I prayed for her the night before and I would pray that night too. She smiled. I went to the garage to Brother Jason and my mom and then Sister Donna came to the garage door and told Brother Jason that she wanted to come. She said she would be alright if she stayed warm and if she could lay down if she needed. She went to get dressed and Brother Jason turned to me with a smile on his face and, half kidding, asked what I said to her. He said she sounded all happy and stuff.
At Jimmy's parent's house, Jimmy, Sister Pat, and my dad were eating pizza from Papa Murphey's. It's the kind that you take home and bake. Brother Jon was baking it. Brother Jason, Sister Donna, and I sat and ate too. Brother Wade and Brother Adam already ate, and after I was done, Andrea, along with Sister Cora and Sister Teresa came. We heard that they put some red in Amy's hair. Sister Tammy kept asking Jimmy if he cleaned up her house for church. She has a short memory. She asked me how old I was about 3 times. The brethren were going to start visiting and Jimmy asked Andrea and me if we wanted to go bowling. We said yes, because we would be back before the visit was over. We bowled 2 games and I was wearing one of my Dragonball Z shirts, and there was a man around 30 years old in the lane next to us wearing a DBZ shirt too! When I was getting my ball, he said "Nice shirt", I said, "Yeah, same to you" without even looking at him. :) I got 108 first game and 122 the second. I won both times (this is only my 4th or 5th time bowling). We got back and finished the visit, then Jimmy took Andrea back to Brother Wayde and Sister Cora's house to sleep and Brother Jason took my mom, Sister Donna, and me back to his house. Sister Donna made some corn dogs for me and then she went and read my "hot tub" story while her bath water filled up. She said it was really neat and that I write very well. My parents arrived and so did Jimmy, saying for me to come because he was taking Matt, Ben, and me to Burger King. I said I had to wait for my corn dogs to finish so he said he would go without me and come back after he got the food. I ate one corn dog and was full, and Jimmy came back with all free food because his cousin is the manager there. Sister Donna came out in a bath robe (it was decent, not revealing which is good) and I have to admit she looked really cute :) Ben wasn't going to sleep at Sister Tammy's house, which means I got my bed to myself again.
I woke up to the doorbell ringing. I figured I would let Jimmy get it. But it kept ringing. I finally got up and found that Sister Pat and Sister Tammy were at the front door and Jimmy and Matt were gone. I let them in and remembered that Jimmy was getting doughnuts. They weren't that great. Sister Pat and Sister Tammy made sure the house was clean, and I took a shower in the low-pressure one. Then we had church, and afterwards I saw that Sister Donna had a very pretty dress on and I told her so. (All the Brothers and Sisters I mentioned make up the whole Idaho church, and our church in Oregon isn't any bigger.) Sister Tammy gave Sister Donna a nice fur coat that looked great, and Brother Jason told her so too. Don't get me wrong, I don't like her in "that way", not even if she was single. We were going to leave for Oregon, so I hugged her and Sister Tammy and Sister Cora, and shaked Brother Jason's hand, and we were off.
