Cave Experience in California. Exclusive with Sarah.
Wow... Ok... On Saturday, I played hooky yet AGAIN from work. I know I shouldn't have, but I was going to miss an excursion up to a cave in Auburn, CA with 20 other awesome people. I gave it some thought, and I figured that this would probably be my only opportunity to get to go in this situation, so... I went. I had a WONDERFUL time..
I saw someone there who I didn't plan on seeing at all. Yup, you guessed it, Sarah Young. She saw me, and I'm not sure how she felt. But... She didn't show any good or bad signs of my being there - so... I thought I would play it cool and enjoy life.
Well.. During the first part of the caving experience, I couldn't think of anything else, but the confusion I was currently in. I saw another guy flirting with her, and I immediately felt a sort of twinge I hadn't felt in quite some time. I asked myself if I was jealous, and I thought that wasn't it....but...now I think it might have been. I'm not sure what it was, but...
Anyway... We dove into a VERY cold pond in the middle of this cave to get to the other side.. That was fun.. We did some rock climbing, mountain climbing, floating down a river, etc..etc..etc... All this time, I was thinking to myself, "I've got to make up my mind about Sarah... This isn't fun." While I was up on a ledge, talking to Troy Matsen, I asked him about Sarah, and he said he had home-taught her. He said he thought she was a wonderful young lady..and had thought of asking her out, but had never gotten around to it. Well... Troy is a guy I respect immensely, so his having said that, basically was the straw that broke my back. I decided I was gonna date Sarah and date only her. I'm not sure if it was a calculated decision or not, but.. I knew I was gonna do it. Sooo... I ended up spending Saturday night with Sarah at her parent's house. We snuggled a bit, and kissed a bit.. It was good.
Sunday, I spend the morning studying for my lesson (which was on the law of chastity) and then I went to church and taught the lesson. People said it was good, so....I'll believe them. I felt semi-good about it, but I knew I prayed and I knew I had done my part, so.. That's that.
After church, I went to Sarah's house and her parents were quite anxious to get to know me. They asked all the questions I'm used to being asked by parents and then I asked them a few of my own. Her family is quite cool.. I told her while we were in the car that I would like to date her a bit more seriously....she said she'd think about it... (smirk)... She's smitten and she knows it. *grin*...
Anyway.. I've got to get this posted to the Internet.. Talk to ya'll later.
