Adiós, mi familia favorita

I somehow woke up this morning, showered, and got ready for church. I left home around 10:40, and met Macy and Jessica, and then we headed to church in Calle Sueca, with Dovis and his dad - his mom and brother stayed home. The service was long (11:00 - 1:00), and afterwards we headed out to Alaquás, where the Sáiz-Ferrero family lives.

Laura, his mom, was there, finishing up making lunch. We helped set the table and get all the food out, and then we ate around 2:00. IT WAS AMAZING!!! Laura is the best cook on the planet. We had shrimp pasta, salad, calamari, Spanish equivalent of deviled eggs, chorizo and queso, and a cake of three chocolates that would make any grown man cry. At the end of the meal, we were all stuffed.

We stayed and talked for a few hours afterwards. This family is incredible. I feel so close to Laura after only knowing her for a short period of time. Juan, the dad, and brother Samuel are amazing, too. And of course, Dovis, who is probably my closest Spanish friend.

Around 5:15, it was time for us to go. J&M and I all had to study and finish up schoolwork, although we would've stayed there until midnight if our time was our own. We took pictures for memories, and then we said our bittersweet goodbyes. I don't know that I will see this precious family again, and so of course, I cried.

Dovis took us home, and then I spent the rest of my afternoon finishing all my projects. Although it took a lot out of me, it feels incredible to have everything done.

For dinner, Matilde, César son, his girlfriend Susana, and I had croquetas and potatoes and green beans. Do I even need to say that it was good?

Now, I plan on going to sleep EARLY and getting lots of rest to make up for all the rest I DIDN'T get this weekend.

Al final, terminada con todo,
