It has been three weeks in Tucson so far, and I love it! We are IRS certified, our housing is amazing, and the weather is beautiful! One of the coolest things I was able to take part in was the shelter simulation. Actually, it wasn't a simulation, it was a real shelter! We were deployed and had to create and staff a real shelter! How exciting was that?
Working on taxes has been pretty interesting. I never thought people would look to me to help them get their maximum return. It feels great to help people out in this way! I had no idea!
Tonight, Derek and I were in charge of making dinner and we nailed it! I decided to switch it up and make our dinner 100% vegan! We made fettuccine and pea alfredo! We used all non-dairy products in preparing the dish. I wanted to make something in ode to the vegans in the group who usually have to eat a salad. The dinner was perfect because it tasted like the real thing and everyone enjoyed it. EVEN Shiny Dave!!! I will have to give you the recipe sometime it is quite delicious!
Ha, we played this game called There's a Box, and we couldn't figure out how to play at all!!! We also had a chance to sit and get cranking on our Day of Service project that we must do this project round. I won't give any big details, but this will easily be one of the greatest experiences and accomplishments of our lives. The official name of our service project (slated for February 21st) is Community Unity Day! Rings a bell doesn't it? Until next time!
