Sunday 2/14 ♥

First of all...
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Happy Valentine's Day! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

In light of the holiday I have changed our font color to this festive one. Now that that's done with, I have something to say.

It has happened. Finally. That moment we've all dreaded has come and gone and we have emerged from it stronger and wiser. I finally didn't get grace last night. I know what you're all thinking, "NO!", "Oh my gosh", and "Is he OK?". Fear not good readers, I have survived. But yes, last night I had my second night of actual blue tenting. I have in fact received 6 nights of grace, but no more. I was a bit cold at first, but then I doubled up on the sleeping bags and everything was toasty. I awoke at 7 something but had to hang around until 8:30. So Brandon, Michael, and I stood in the freezing sunlight for a bit. Then Brandon and I left the tent using the power of church grace and got McDonalds (I'm lovin' it). I got a McGriddle. SO hot right now. It was delicious.

I would like all the readers to know that I am feeling better. In case you were all worrying about me. Because I know you all were.

I got out of bed at about 10:30 today. Which means that I have spent the majority of the past 17.5 hours in bed. Longest nap ever. After Mr. Christopher Ryan D'Angelo overdosed me on Advil, I just crashed in bed. But he also gave me a Gatorade. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I love you Chris!! And Lewis!! And all others who sent me calls/texts inquiring to my well-being.

Now for the bad news. I only have pictures of the first part of the exclusive super duper outrageous cool awesome mysterious unknown super secret. Because the Fortress was holding onto my camera during the second part. In other words, my camera was not in my possession because it was left in the Fortress while my room was walked to by my exhausted self. Maybe the pictures were taken by someone else. Notice how I am using passive voice to shift the blame away from myself. I mean, notice how passive voice is being used by me to shift the blame away from myself.
